In my experience, Nike shoes tend to run small, especially in the toebox. Thet are stiff and remain so even with hard riding. You should try them on before purchasing, or at least make sure you can return/exchange them if you buy online. Good luck.

I really liked the fit of my poggio shoes. the toe box was plenty wide and the were super stiff and freakishly light. the problem was the placement of the top velcro strap. the strap was positioned too high on the top of the shoe and basically bruised the crap out of the tendon on the front of my ankle. went to a pair of hautacams and the strap/buckle combo was situated in the same position and created the same problem. it's actually a common problem among those of us with larger feet (size 46) and a bit wider ankles. i know people with smaller feet and thinner ankles that love the shoes and don't have the complaint.
I went to a pair of shimano r-150s w/the carbon sole and they fit perfectly. pricepoint has 'em for $90.
as for the fit, the nikes are true to your regular shoe size. i wear a 12 in nike sneakers and and 46 in their cycling shoes. shimano builds the soles for nike and sidi does the uppers.

The Poggios do not fit like typical Nike raod shoes. They are significantly wider in the toebox for a given size compared to what Nike normally makes. Take this into account if you are considering the Poggios.

I agree. Nike, which used to make shoes that narrow-foot people can wear, seems to have made their more current crop similar to Carnacs, which have wide toe boxes and are typically wider overall.

They are the alternative to Sidis (too expensive) and adidas (I scored a killer deal), which are more comfy for narrow-feet people.

FWIW,
Mike
