Did you try them on before he gave them to you?

@globalmargaret:  I would tell him that they don’t fit and exchange/return them. Fiance likes to buy me clothes and I always feel terrible when they don’t fit (he orders the right size) but when I keep them they never get worn. If they get exchanged I’m usually much happier.

It’s unfortunate, but you can’t keep them.  I’m sure he’ll understand!!  Could you resell them?

Just re-sell them on ebay. Shoes are like jeans…even though you know your size brands do not all fit the same way. Just say “I think it is so sweet you ordered these boots! You’re the best! I really want to show them off and tell everyone what a great husband you are but for some reason they are very snug for a six. Would you mind if I try to re-sell them and get them in a bigger size?”

I would talk with your FI as soon as possible to find out whether or not the listing allowed for a return period, and, if so, I would return them to the seller for a full refund. (You’ll likely have to pay for the return shipping, however.) He could always try to find you a similar pair in a larger size at another time.
