Go for the 38! I am also a 39 and, sorry to say, I took the 39. They get bigger and now they are to big for me. The 38 will be perfect after you have suffered for a couple of weeks But it's worth it!
PLEASE HELP Does anyone have real experience on these shoes that how much do they expand when you use them? I usually have 39 and I have 39 also on my other martens shoes. But with these 39 is good but little bit too big and especially if they get bigger. Then again 38 is very tight but does not hurt, but I know that if I have to walk a lot, they start to hurt. If they expand a lot, then I could maybe take 38. So which one should I take? Because I want to take 38, but Im too afraid if they dont expand enough when I use them. Thanks for help
