    Sidi vs S-works shoes

    Why is it that a Sidi 42 is a US 8.5, but a 42 Specialized S-works is a US size 9?
    Should I expect the same fit of the 42 vs the 42?
    A 42 Sidi fit me perfect. Will a 42 S-work shoe fit almost the same?
    Thx

    Because different brands/models of shoes fit differently. The Specialized shoe may not fit you at all, in any size. You need to try them on.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thx

    And would to love to try them on if I could find a pair where I live. What I'm hoping for is to get a reply from someone who may have had this opportunity.

    That is why I have never bought shoes online. Fit is the most importaint part of a shoe. Even more than bike in some cases as you can adjust the fit of a bike, not a shoe.

    Even if you were to try a used set as well, they will fit different from a new set as shoes tend to shape to the owners foot over time.

    8 Speed is great and V-Brakes rock!
