Just tried on my New Jersey shoes. They're definitely on the rather tight side, but they aren't excruciatingly uncomfortable. Should I keep em till they stretch?
Go with Helsinki. I've tried all the ones that go on sale and always end up with Helsinki slip ons. Those are widest. The nj are definitely narrow. I have 4 pairs of Helsinki under my bed for when my current ones get worn out. They last a year if I'm lucky.

Well, the Helsinkis do fit better, but I got laced ones which I decided to use for Shabbos. Would it be worth it to get a pair of slip-on ones for during the week? They don't go on sale that often.

I've been wearing the Helsinki lace ups for years.

Helisinki has a wide cut. Jerseys are pretty snug

Seattle is great for wide feet too, very roomy.

So the consensus is that it's not worth trying to stretch the Jerseys?

Figured I'd post a follow-up:

First of all, thanks to everyone here who posted back in March and helped me out with the shoe buying experience. I am enjoying the shoes very much and am very happy that I bought them.

The Helsinkis fit right out of the box. The New Jerseys were too snug, but being to lazy to return them, I decided to just wear them until they stretch, and they fit perfectly now.

I now just stocked up on a few more pairs with the Prime Day sale.

I'm just seeing this thread now for the first time.

+1 on the Helsinkis being good for wide.

Good to know about the NJs stretching, I'll probably try that sometime.
