SIDI Shoe sizing

First, I apologize if this is posted in the wrong forum. Moderators, please move it if need be.

I have a question regarding shoe sizing. I wear a US size 15 street shoe. I have an old pair of Shimano MTB shoes, but the size markings are worn off. I bought them back in the mid 90s, and they've always felt too small.

I'm looking to buy some shoes(probably lightly used/newish) on Ebay. Do SIDI road shoes run small? What size should I look for? I'm guessing somewhere in the 50-52 range?

BTW, I have done some searching, and have gotten a mixed bag of answers on the internet.

Thanks in advance

I wear a 13 nike (12 in just about everything else). Shimano I'm a 47, and for sidi I bought a pair of 48s that are maybe a size too big- the length is a little long, but the width is good.

hopfully that'll be somewhat helpful. At least to give you a closer reference point to what you're aiming for.

They tend to be a little narrow. I get the "mega" version even though my feet aren't particularly wide.

Shoes are one of the things I'd rather buy in person even if it costs more.

I used this SIDI shoe sizer when I purchased my shoes online. Put it together, followed the directions and bought the recommended size. They fit perfectly.

FWIW, I'm generally around a 11.5-12.5 in street and athletic shoes. I wear a 46 in SIDIs.

I used this sizer and it worked for me.
