I had Sidi's... for years. Size 47, I really always needed a 48. Started to get some problems from a shoe that was too small (lengthwise). I have 'normal' width foot...maybe even somewhat narrow.
Salesman (actually woman) kinda talked me into a pair of Specialized Pro Carbon Road...box toe construction and a whole list of 'bells and whistles'. Rode them today. Hot and stiff. I felt like I WANTED my foot to be snug in the shoe (not length, but width). But, maybe I am wrong...maybe there should be alot of wiggle room for the toes to play on long rides. Just felt 'funny'. . I want to get my Sidi's back...snug, confident.
Any thoughts on shoe fit? I can still make the swap at the shop, but never able to swap after that. This would be the final decision. SO...do you all ride with 'roomy' or 'snug' shoes???

roomy..

After using Sidis that are on the narrow side for many years, I chose a true D width shoe from Rocket 7 and it fits like it's not there. The insole is another story. The shoes come with a light weight but worthless foam insert. I've recently installed Sole heat formable insoles that are a huge improvement.
