Does anyone know how many cms shorter the Medium MKS toe clips are than the Large? Also does anyone wear size 9/9.5 and use mediums? Thanks.

I wear a men's 9, and have mediums. Plenty of room in the clip, no toe overlap.

Medium is the max size recommended for 9.5 by MKS.
Beyond that, it's Large.

To answer your question, the difference is 1.5cm in length. I have Larges on one bike, and mediums on another bike because of the toe overlap it has... the medium clips help my feet clear the tire a bit more than with Large clips... but not much.

I am a 9.5 shoe-size
