    Hi all,

    Thinking about picking up a pair of these and taking the plunge with clipless pedals.

    Does anyone know how the sizing compares to say, Adidas running shoes? I'm somewhere around a 9 in normal shoes, and my Adidas runners are 9 1/2 (in UK sizes).

    Any advice, experiences much appreciated.

    re

    I have a pair.
    I am a size 8 (UK) but MT40's are european sized so get a size up from what u normally wear.
    UK 42 so I got a 43. And they fit fine.
    Bets thing I ever did was go clipless (after buying ayups of course :biggrin:)

    Agreed, one size up seems to work here.

    I find Shimano a rather narrow fit, if you can go to a shop where you can try on several makes of shoe.

    Am a size 8 and found a Shimano 8 a good fit.

    I have fairly wide feet but found that Shimano MT51s fit fine. I did buy them one size bigger though (44 instead of 43).

    I got MT90's, I found I needed a 47 instead of my usual 45
