    Northwave Rockster shoe dillemma

    I ordered a pair of Northwave Rockster shoes from performancebicycles.com and they came today. Problem is there sizing chart online was incorrect.

    They had listed a 46/47 being a US size 12
    Actual size on the shoe is 46, with a US size 13.

    It was the only size they have left online, and I doubt they have them in the actual stores (I will check)

    This is my first "non casual, non lace" MTB shoe, so I am wondering about the velcro strap fit. They don't slide too much on my heel, and my toe is about little over half an inch from the top of the shoe. If my feet arent swimming in them, should I just keep them? I mean they fit pretty good, just not snug. Its a cool looking shoe, but if its the wrong fit I will have to chance going with something else in this price range.

    any advice?

    Thanks


    by the way I called Perfomance and told them their sizing was wrong, nothing CS could do at this point.

    Buying shoes via mail order is a crap shoot. Sizing charts are basically useless. Every shoe fits differently even different models within the same brand can be different.

    I try on the sizes on each side of the one that seems "good." Can confirm the size is right or can tell me the shoe is wrong no matter the size. Even so I have a pile of shoes I rarely wear because they are not comfortable.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
