been riding these shoes for almost a month. they were everything I expected. I got a size 42. width is perfect... maybe a little long, but I have square feet much to my schigrin (spelling?). I previously used a 42 in sidi, which was fit like a molded mouth gaurd. so anyone looking for sizing, shimano might run a little bigger than sidi. A 41 would probably stretched out and fit snugger, but It doesn't bother me. Going to get the Mallet 1 pedals... Love flats for downhill, but need the clips for uphill. I am stoked to shred.
