Do all Shimano shoes run small?(3 posts)

Do all Shimano shoes run small?Velocipedio

I tried on a pair of Shimano R150 shoes and found that the size 43 fit me to length, but was tight at the front of my arch. I'm just curious about sizing, because I find that size 42.5 Sidis and 42 Disdoras [which I own and am hoping to replace] fit me somewhat better. I suppose I'm a little confused because I always thought Shimanos were built on a wider last than Sidis or Diadoras.
I find Shimano shoes to be quite spaciousBarnyard

Suck it up my friend. When new, a cycling shoe should be a tight fit.
Maybe just a little. . .js5280

Just bought a pair of Shimano SH-M220 ATB Shoes for my new Eggbeaters :-) and according to Shimano's sizing chart (http://bike.shimano.com/footwear_pedals/sizechart/index.asp) I thought I'd need a 44 since I'm usually a 9 1/2. All my other cycling shoes (Performance and Diadora) were 43. 44 wasn't available so I got 43.5 and they fit fine. Don't have any bikes miles on them yet but they feel like my other shoes. If they are smaller, I'd say it's just a little. Not sure if that changes from shoe to shoe though. My foot width is fairly standard.
