Thank you Shimano for making a DH SPD shoe in my size! I have the fiveten Karver shoes but my feet still slip in rocky technical sections and fiveten doesn't make a DH/Freeride SPD shoe in my size. I ride clipless for XC and missed that feeling for DH. I wear a size 6/6.5 in women's shoes and ordered the 36 at first. Too small, so I got the 37, just a bit too big but much better fit than the 36 (toes curling). I use these shoes with the Shimano DX clipless pedals which work great together: easy to clip in and out, big comfortable platform.
