I recently bought a pair of rain boots that came in only whole sizes. So, I bought an 8 because my normal shoe size is a 7.5. Does anyone have any tips or tricks (other than wearing thick socks) to make these fit better?

Inserts, but I'd really look around for some that have decent reviews. There are various types as well.

Insoles. Good ones cost, but you get some great support out of them. Superfeet are great; they cost about $20 a pair.

Inserts. I do this all the time. You might have to try one or two sorts before finding the right ones for your your boots, though. The easiest sorts to find are at places like Walgreens. I like the thicker gel inserts, but you might want a warmer insert for rain boots. There used to be wooly inserts, but I don't know if they still make them.

I agree w/inserts - I had to get a pair of rain clog type shoes and the smallest they had was a 7 (I wear a 6) - I put thick insoles in (super comfy now) as well as wear w/thicker socks.

Yep, use inserts. Dr. Scholls are great.

Thanks, everyone! I think that's unanimous advice for the first time ever on City Data.

Default Have your feet gotten bigger over time?

I am wearing shoe sizes that are at least 1.5 sizes bigger than what I used to wear 25 years ago. Not sure what's happening. Is it the age thing?
