    The sizing on cycling shoes is whacky. I wear anything from a 42-46 depending on the brand... they aren't something you can really buy online with any amount of certainty.

    I too would advise against buying online any brand of shoes you're unfamiliar with. Fit goes beyond just size too. However, as far as size conversion goes, here's Sidi's chart:

    To put things in perspective, in SIDI's I wear a 45.5 and in Specialized I wear a 44... most shops should have shoes starting at $50 or so, which is pretty reasonable, especially by the time you ad shipping to the online prices.
