How do Answer shoe sizes run?

Hey everyone,
I'm going to be ordering some Answer Tantric/Crank Brother pedals today from Nashbar since it is such an awesome deal, but I'm not quite sure what I need. I'm ordering either a 42 and 43. Does anyone have any experience with Answer shoes, and if they run big or small? I know the general rule of buying clothes you can't try on is to buy big, so I'll probably go for the 43's, but I'm not sure if it will be too big. Does anyone have this specific model, and how do you like them?

Thanks

The tantrics seem a bit large in the size area. I've got them in 44 which is a 10.5. The 10.5 Tantrics fit just like my size 11 tennis shoes.

I just returned a pair of Answer Palisade shoes I wanted for commuting. Way too narrow!

I just went to REI, they only had Shimano and Pearl Izumi to try (and Sidi's, but those were too high-tech to try, haha). The Shimano was much smaller fitting than the Pearl Izumi. How would Answer compare sizewise to Shimano and/or Pearl Izumi?

Thanks
