Should I always go a size larger?

I'm buying my first road shoes off the internet, and not sure which size to go for. Just some basic tips are appreciated :smile:

Cheers!

In short no! Some makes are spot on but it does depend a lot on the shape of your feet.

I suppose if you go one size larger you can pop an insert in or wear thicker socks if they are slightly too big.

Check to see if the seller will exchange and unless they are Shimano shoes I'd take a chance and get your regular size (some do 1/2 sizes as well).

just seen the Specialized post - I have a pair of 42 Eu 8's UK and they are perfect for a size 8. The problems arise I think around the 9/10's.

Yes, I thought. But is it ok to just leave after trying them on. I find it awkward. I actually bought some shimano mountain shoes just for the sake of not leaving empty handed, and I did go for a size larger. Now I can't even walk in them. I'm will post it later on here as I've lost the receipt -.-'

aw lol :smile:

I thought you said try them in a shop ;)

Won't they cost more? That what most ppl say, as prices over the internet are competitive.
