Here's a fun fact. I purchased the original SST 8 when they came out in the white version. They felt as if they weighed 2 pounds on each foot. I felt like I had no sensitivity with my foot and the approach, like I was walking on stilts. I HATED them and sold them for $50. Fun times. I went back to my 5 year old DynaRooz and kept spitting on my hand, rubbing the sole for the remainder of my winter league. The middle of this summer I was fed up with having to spit on my hand every shot. It cost me a lot of money when I didn't do it on spare shots, losing my foot control during the slide and either pulling or pitching out shots. Needless to say, I was in dire need of either new shoes, or new slides. I don't know what FOOT shrinking is all about, but I think it's happening. I've been purchasing tennis shoes in smaller sizes and even my ever-loving DynaRooz were feeling large. After a multi-week debate over the 3G Ultra Tour shoes and the SST 8 SE version shoes, awaiting more reviews on the SE, I decided to purchase a pair at a half size smaller than my DynaRooz. The S8 sole didn't feel too bad, and my friend uses that. He gave me his brand new S6 to try (he has original SST 8). I shot 712 scratch first set out. Mind you, this is on wooden approaches and I have about a 12" slide. Factory placed heels. They felt significantly lighter and yet durable. However, my right foot (push off) I used the newly released Dexter Max PowerStep T3+... I never tried the right shoe without the Power Step T3+ but obviously I became accustomed to it quite well. So well that in fact I went a clean 30 for the night.
