    Wrong forum, I'm guessing.
    Buying shoes without trying them is hit and miss, chances are w/e you buy won't fit or feel right. It all depends how true to sizing they're made, try 47, hopefully ya can return if they're too big.

    Good luck, I bought shoes online once, never again.

    You've got a bike, so you gotta move.

    It depends on your feet. Some shoes width run a bit too narrow or a bit short on length and that forces one to buy the next size up for comfort and/or to accommodate thicker socks if you plan to use them on colder days/winter. It is rare, but a few shoes run big and you go a half size smaller. Shoes are the one thing you need to try on, even if you plan on buying them online.

    Why that's easy:

    Order a 46, 47 and 48. Return the 2 pairs that don't fit.
    The real trick is getting the purchase and return onto the same credit card billing cycle.

    Read the OPs post carefully.

    It looks to me like he is going to have to import them from my reading of the post. Very likely this means a major hassle with returning anything in a timely manner and possible non refunding of any import duty paid on the pairs that need to be returned. This is in addition to international post rates both ways. That solution could get expensive.

    My experience... Shimano shoes run really small/narrow.
