    I'm usually a size 9, even an 8.5 but could I fit in a size 8 Jordan V?

    I'm wondering if these run kind of big

    I would've said they run true to small. Toe box is a little restrictive.. but i havent bought any Vs since 2000.





    Who are you going to listen to the guy with 6 posts?

    Or the guy who's been here since 2002

    they seem to run a little snug in the toe box so id say true to size maybe a half size down would do the deal for yo

    They run the same as the 4s. Toe box is narrow but the shoe is true to length. I wouldn't recommend getting the size 8.

    Last time i copped a V was in 2000, size 11

    Then i won a pair of 3m Raging Bulls a couple weeks ago, size 11

    Wore them last night to a x-mas party get together and they felt a little "tight"

    I compared them to my other jordans and they are slightly shorter in length.

    They feel fine, don't get me wrong... but that toe box is a tad narrow (and very prone to crease).


    good luck though.

    I'd say my true size is a 8.5 because I have a pair of AM 90s and their a size nine and too big. This deal was too good to pass up so I guess i'll makedo and try to break these in

    yea dude, im a size 10 but in the jordan V i can handle a size 10 but a perfect fit is 9.5. the Vs are a bulky shoe.

    They run REALLY big IMO. I am a size 8 and 8.5 in Jordans, Maxes, SB's Etc etc and I can do a 7.5 and even a 7 in Vs comfortable. I'd at least jumphalf a size up if you buy a DS pair.

    I'd say for a narrow foot u can get away w/ the 8. I wear a 12 and my Olive's (sz 12) fit a lil big, my Fire Reds and Black/silvers (11.5) fit coo, myCDP V's (sz 11) fit the same as my 11.5's. I have a narrow foot also

    The V's run BIG. Probably 1 full size down is fine. I went .5 size, and they are still loose, even in the toe box. These are based on Olive's andLaney's that I still own.

    I personally think that the V's run true size. But a half size bigger wouldn't hurt.

    ^^^^agreed...for reference i wear 10 in af1 and in the III's perfectly. I'm in my sz 10 burgundy's right now and they fit ok but a 9.5would fit much better. but like one of the dudes said, the most recent ones might be a bit smaller.

    *If* you have narrow feet, slender toes, remove the insole, and don't mind some discomfort... you might get away with it.

    Sounds like an awful lot of hassle for at best very poor results though.
