I’ve actually gotten an in depth crash course in the 2 previously from someone who has them both.

I made a thread but I think I was supposed to post here instead. Wondering you you all could help me..I was looking for any advice or tips. I ordered a size 39 and it felt slightly tight in the toebox, the 40 slips off my heel a bit but feels comfortable. Which one would you go with?

shouls I do 39 and change the insole? Thank you!!
I find they stretch quite a bit as you wear them so I’d go with the 39 and stretch the toe box the way I did, the freezer technique. (I posted pics a few pages back.) Or you could keep the 40 and wear a thicker sock. I’m in between sizes for the Superstar but the Slides and Running Soles I do well with sizing down. I hope that helps! The struggle is real!

You’re welcome! Hopefully the person who sent me the pictures won’t mind. I went kind of crazy trying to understand Francys in June when I saw a LAB pair I thought I had to have. But ultimately, I feel like I just really love Slides. I think I prefer them over SSs, and their comfort is unparalleled. So it seemed silly to spend so much on a pair where the style wasn’t necessarily my favorite.

Shoot! I did this a bit late. Looks like the boards are part of my post. The toe box on the Francy is supposedly the same as an SS, just a bit taller. So if you struggle with the toe box in the SS, or have a wider foot, sizing down may not work quite as well as it does for the Slide.

39 IMO. I got 38s as my first pair and they slip so bad. 38s slip less and aren't really any smaller in toe box.

I hate socks with mine too. They eat my socks, lol! My socks slide under my foot because the shoes are heavy and slide up/down a bit. I found these really strange looking socks from Target that cover just my toes and I swear by them with my GG.

Thanks for sharing! It doesn’t look like the Francy’s would be the right fit for me but I’m so tempted by a glitter patchwork pair. I just recently sized up to a 40 in the Slides and they fit perfect out of the box which makes me so happy !

I agree with you, the Slides are my favorite and much more comfortable than the SS. The Running Soles feel great right oit of the box as well but I’m still not sure if the style of them is my favorite.
