EDIT: Pictures of the shoes.
On a side note, I hope you don't mind rei_0, I took the lid off of your ballet rocking horse shoes. I was curious as to what they looked like in person. I wanted to know from people who have these are they comfortable? They don't look like they are a true size 8.5-9US unless you have really narrow feet. I know from my experience unless shoes have a rounded toe, I usually have to buy a full size above my shoes size for them to be comfy. The shoes aren't mine, I don't want to even touch them but they look like more of an 7.5-8US than a 8.5-9US. So anyone who has these shoes in 25cm, am I completely wrong on this?
I am also asking because I wanted to buy the rocking horse boots from DD and they seem to be made the same way as the ballet rocking horse shoes. If they won't fit me, I will probably go with the pair on ebay with the foam soles.
