Currently looking at the Sidi Genius 5 (Carbon too expensive for me).
Can anyone that uses Sidi shoes and normally wears a 8 1/2 US (normal width) shoe tell me what size Sidi works well for them? I am guessing that I need a 42.5 or 43.
PS...before anyone suggests I visit my LBS and try on a pair, no one sells them in my area.
I wear a 10-1/2 EEE and wear a Sidi 45 in the mega width, so for me they don't seem to run small. Based on that I doubt that someone who wears an 8-1/2 would wear a 43. If at all possible try a pair on somewhere before buying.
