I had high expectations that my feet would fit more comfortably in these almost $400 shoes. But, alas, that was not the case. As one ages, one looses the arch in their feet, consequently lengthening the foot. I purchased a 1/2 size bigger than what my foot measured, hoping that my toes on my left foot would not rub into the toe box. The shoes just aren't that wide, even though they are advertised as an EE/EEE when one buys the Mega style. The shoes are incredibly well engineered and manufactured to offer the most comfort and performance possible. It's just my feet are now different then they were just two years. ago. I love the adjusting system on the shoes; really pro looking! Sidi doesn't recommend replacing their sole inserts but my toes were getting numb while riding with theirs so I purchased a pair of gel inserts and installed them into the shoes, preventing my toes from becoming LESS numb. Have your feet measured on a Brannock Device before purchasing these shoes so that you will know exactly your size and then convert that size in a European fit.
