Upsizing crack shoes for finger cracks?

I've seen some like I think steph davis ? mention they go up a full size in shoe for thin cracks. That way not only are the toes flat but there's actually a bit of airspace at the front of the shoe, supposedly this helps to have something more to get into thin finger cracks.

Anyone else try this, is this common?

cheers
