Asics Nimbus are the same, my usual size is very snug around the toes. Is this a way to discourage us from buying online? I've found Asics v reliable over the years so just get the latest version whenI need new shoes. Disappointing. (And yes, I could have returned them but by the time I decided it was the shoes and not me, it was too late.)
I like the m&s ones with the zip at the front. Once done up iT's like a crop top, so you can't adjust the straps, but i find it to be very well fitting and doesn't rub. The zip can be a bit tricky to line up to get it done up tho.
there's going to be a lot of trial and error with bras, we're all different shapes and move in different ways.
