Hey guys. I'm sure I've made a similar thread before but with the gssgear sale happening soon, I want to get some more definitive opinions.
My first and only Vibram purchase so far has been a W40 KSO I bought online a few months ago. I sort of suspected I got a size too big when I bought it but was unsure how "glovelike" it really was supposed to be. I mean, it's already a clingy material. (Plus I figured it would allow me to wear socks with it and cut down on odor, but I've found wearing toe socks with them sorta hurts and don't do it too often)
If I wear it so that it's flush to my heel my big toe ends at around the edge of the rubber toecap. (My toenail is flush against it, so about 2mm of my toe extends past it, under the toecap, I suppose) I can't tell if it's the same or better with my second toe. Maybe slightly better. If I pull it so that my toes are more flush with the caps, there's a small gap at the heel. Maybe 1/8-1/4 of an inch max?
Is it too big?
Should I size down to a W39 for my next purchase?
Edit: In case it matters, I think the reason I went with a 40 is because I originally measured slightly over 9 5/8 so I went up a size... Perhaps I measured wrong? *tries to find a ruler*
