I wear a 7.5 - 8... should I get a 7 because I hear they run big?
They don't necessarily run big, but because of the canvas material they will stretch out a bit. You should be fine with a 7.5. Obviously like other shoes after a lot of use over a long period of time, they may seem a bit bigger than when you purchased them.
