At 33...not really: At 33, your feet have stopped growing because the epiphyseal plates (growth centers) have closed. Not due to any shoe worn. However, as we mature, the ligaments which hold bone and joints together begin to stretch (this happens too with pregnancy) and can increase your shoe size.
