You really are the only one that can decide this. It's your feet. BUT, I would ask about heat molding. If your toes just barely scrape the end on the 8, then yeah, they are likely to pack out and be looser after some riding. How much? Couldn't tell you. It will vary from boot to boot. With the 7.5's though, you may be able to simulate the pack out a little with some heat molding. No guarantees though. Just ask the guy at the shop. If he knows his stuff, he'll steer you right. If he has no idea, keep shopping until you find someone/place that does. I wouldn't buy boots that hurt though on the hope that they will pack out.
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
