Yes, I normally wear a 10D or 10EE which roughly translates to 43.0 or 43.5. I own The Zens, Mojitos and Gore-Tex Mid Mojitos all in 44.0 and they fit perfectly. If anything, I would say the Zens are slightly smaller than the Mojitos, but that could be just because they are so much more rugged, thicker and stiffer in the sides. You have to get the lacing in the toe area just right or they'll seem way too small. Once you set that, you can just pull the shoes on and tie them up without readjusting all the laces each time. Even though the Zens are stiffer and not as comfy as the Mojitos, I prefer to wear them because they feel indestructible.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've owned a pair of these for a year now and love them. I did two things I think have contributed to my positive experience. First, I bought them one full size larger than what I normally wear. Being slippers, I wanted to be able to slide them on easily in the dark. There is a small lip at the heal of the slippers that helps them stay on. Being a full size larger my foot always lands inside the lip and never crushes it. Second, I knew I would probably be wearing these with Smartwool Light Hiker socks. This turned out to be a good assumption because my feet actually sweat a lot in these when barefoot. With wool socks on, they never sweat. I think wearing socks has the added benefit of protecting the inside of the slippers from sweat and human body oil. The slippers have stretched out a bit, but still fit just the way I wanted them to. Wearing these and a pair of 20 year old Gramicci G pants [they don't make 'em the same anymore] is my favorite way to lounge and work from home.

I'm wearing a Sharp Point I bought around 6 years ago and still love it. When I was in an REI purchasing mine I ran into a friend who was returning a Sharp Point because it didn't keep him warm enough in Poland. My experience however, has been more positive. I think this is the most versatile jacket I own because of its blend of technical ability and understated stylishness for around town. I've worn it in environments from 30° nights in Death Valley to 60° days in Los Angeles. Another friend bought one in Feb '08 for a trip and I was able to compare my older version with his new model. The newer one seems to be slightly heavier, but softer and more readily conforms to the shape of your body and it restricts movement less. Mine also has a soft velour interior lining that runs through the sleeves which sometimes binds my arms when wearing long sleeve shirts. When I tried on my friend's '08 model this was much less a problem. I find the windstopping ability and water resistance of this series to be excellent. I've even put the jacket under a running faucet and the water flows off it like a newly waxed car. The Sharp Point I own is an XL. I'm 5'11", 180 lbs. and prefer shells to be slightly loose so I can layer. For its light weight, ease of movement and weather protection, this jacket is one of my all-time favorites.
