    Ive been wanting a pair of converse allstars, and have asked in pretty much every shoe shop if they sell wide fittings (im guessing a mens E size), but all they have is the standard fitting. This is too tight at a few parts of the foot (big toe, little toe bone etc). Apart from that, the shoe fits fine length wise which is great (they are the one shoe that seems to fit length perfectly).

    Just wondering, will they break in much/could I use a shoe stretcher on them?

    Yeah, they do, but you have to go through the pain of wearing them in at first. I've owned 3 pairs now (I wear them until they fall apart), and they've all rubbed at first but soon become comfortable and stretch to my oddly-shaped feet.

    Converse do stretch, yeh. They can hurt abit when you first wear them, but that does entirely depends on the person. Converse are one of the best shoes to mold around the foot, once they have they're stupidly comfy. Just don't wear them if its really hot and your feet easily swell, they can get slightly uncomfortable.
    Watch the sizing though, they're big fitting. When people are buying Converse for the first time, I bring down the size they ask for as well as the size below. 9 times out of 10 the smaller size fits better.

    You have to remember they are a tight shoe anyway, but like I said, they're great for molding to the foot.

    ONE MORE QUESTION: Ive tried a 9 and a 10 (9 is great lengthwise but too loose, 10 great width but too long), but I couldn't get my hands on a 9.5. Im not sure if they even sell half sizes for All Stars, but does anyone know if any high street shoe shops stock them? In town there is a Sole Trader, Office and a few other shoe shops.

    You'd have to try the Converse website. We don't sell them and I've yet to find anywhere that does.
