    661 shoes, run big or small?

    Anybody have any experince with 661 shoes. I fall in between two sizes and I can't find a dealer around here. Do they run big or small? Looking at going with a 44, I wear a 44 in my old Sidis and a 10.5 street shoes.

    Thanks

    AXO and Gaerne have been associated with sixsixone (not sure if they still are) and my AXO and Gaerne shoes seem to be fairly standard sizes. I don't have any 661 shoes, but I think they're sized similarly.

    The AXO and Gaerne's are size 46. All my other shoes are labelled 46 or 46.5 (size 12 US) and the fit is comparable. I have Lake, Answer and Shimano shoes of the same size for comparison.

    {Martin} And a sloppy speller too. The preferred spelling of 'wiener' is w - i - e - n - e - r, although 'e - i' is an acceptable ethnic variant.

    Thanks, I'm still looking around. I want a better shoe for hiking than my old Sidi's, some of the 661s caught my eye.

    Ditto Bob's experience WRT size. I've had one pair each of AXO and Gaerne, and they seemed to run true to size, and were of average width. Also of average qualtiy (and that's being charitable). I've had bad luck with the quality of anything made by Valencia Sport Group.

    Thanks for the insight. I'm now looking at some Shimano shoes.
