Run Small and narrow
I really wanna like these. I do mostly gym and trad cruisers--not a super ambitious climber. I wear a 9 US for street shoes. Pretty average dogs,--not too wide, not too narrow, no odd protrusions. Got these in 8.5 US and could barely get them on. Replaced them with a 9 and they are still very tight (after about 20 trips to gym), with a painful pressure point at big toe 'knuckle'. As others have said, they are a bit 'baggy' in heel, too.
