Depends. I ran in a 6 in my last Marathon and got a black toenail, though they didn't feel too small.. they were an Asics, now I'm running in a Mizuno 6 and there seems to be a lot more room round the toe - maybe it depends on brands?
Agree with FB on the wet shoes thing..
My runners are Brooks and they're half a size bigger than my usual shoes.
I did the FLM in April and if I go out in open-toes shoes, I still have to cover my nails with red polish (or some colour that isn't clear) to hide my brown toe, although it's two thirds grown out now. Phew...
