    Sidi shoe sizing?

    I just bought a brand new pair of Sidi Bullets on ebay for $90. I *think* they will fit as I wear a size 7 shoe and these are a 40 but my current shoes, which are a bit too small, are a 39.

    Anyone know if Sidis generally run big, regular, or small? I think I'll be OK if they run regular or small.

    they run tight...I wear a 46 which gives me breathing room in my regular shoes...46 in sidis means GLOVE fit, which is what I want...Love mine so far...they're basically in line with most shoes...but they fit like a glove.

    Thanks. I also like a tight fit and since they are exactly my shoe size, I think they'll be perfect.

    I've always heard great things about Sidis, so I hope they live up to their name!

    the first week with my were a SOB...stiff, totally uncomfortable...now they've started breaking in and conforming to my feet, I figure with a few more weeks in them they'll be my new best friend...do realize though they offer no traction on hardwood or vinyl floors, I found out the hardway

    Well crap that sucks. That means sidi won't fit me then. I am a 50. If sidi fits tight they are useless...

    Dang euros and their miniature bodies. Whats wrong with them, first dainese is built for skinny midgets and now their shoes are smaller than the number listed.

    Hey, there's nothing wrong with the svelte greyhound look We euro's can't help it if people from north america are big-boned.

    yeah, my Sidi's fit close too. I bought the Genius 4 on sale (road shoe) and thankfully found out that they run small before I ordered them.

    Love the shoes but their sizing is annoying. It's one thing to figure out your Euro size but then to have Sidi run a size and a half small of that is just really frustating.

    Amazing how cheap SIDI's are in Europe, huh?

    I used to buy them from England and sell them here in the USA for a 30% profit on eBAY....

    Mael, I promise you, if you wera a 50 regularly, get the 50 mega...and you'll be straight. They fit, they're just tight, you wouldn't want play in a shoe that you're cycling with, would you?
