What size street shoe are you in comparison to the defys? unless you are a thousand shoe sizes down, the reason the defys wont fit is the shape of your foot. The best option is to go to cotswolds and try different shoes on to see what sort of shoe fits well. Then look on line and look for similar shoes or the same shoe on sale. I have wide feet and the defys fit me well. Do you have dainty lady feet dermot?
