    Shimano shoe sizes compared to Nike?

    Hey guys I'm ordering Shimano's online and since I can't try them on was wondering how their sizes are. I usually wear size 45 or 46 depending on the brand, for example my Nikes are 45 but I tried some bontrager biking shoes and found 45 tight and 46 my size.

    How are the shimano sizes compared to your nikes for example? Similar? Bigger? etc..

    thanks

    It may also depend on the shape and width of the foot and shoe. All my "normal" shoes are euro 44 now. When I tried Shimano shoes at a shop I found 45 to fit well (and bought a pair).

    I need a bit larger size Shimano in my experience... I wear a 46 in the MO86 (my all time favorite MTB shoe now sadly discontinued), 45 in Nike, 45 in Sidi Dominator 5 (light but overrated in every other way and they really SUCK if you have to hike-a-bike, plus expen$ive) and 45 in Lake's.

    My nikes are 43, adidas are 43.5, 5.10s are 42.5, and Shimano sh-mt32l are 43.

    All my normal shoes are skate shoe style. Not sure how others fit.
