    MTB Shoes Question...

    Question concerning mtb shoes. Specifically, should I get a size smaller or larger than my regular shoe size? I wear a size 12. The shoes I am purchasing are the Answer Impact shoes. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. By the way, I bought the combo package that comes with Egg Beater pedals. Thanks guys

    I will say that my shoes are too big for me by about a size or a size and a half, and it causes it no problems.

    I wouldn't be afraid of ordering a size that might be a little big.

    I'd go a size bigger, but why dont you find a store that has it and then buy online?

    I would not buy another clothing before at least trying them on. Most of the time, I just buy them locally....

    Should have gone to the bike shop. All shoes fit differently a 9.5 in one company's line could be a 10 or even a 10.5 in someone elses. Never buy shoes or helmets unless you KNOW how they fit.
