    Sizing differences between 661 and 5.10 shoes?

    Anyone here own or owned both the 661 Launch and 5.10 Impacts? I'd like to know if there is a difference in sizing between the two. I have the 661s in a 12.5 and am trying to figure out what size 5.10s to order.

    Thanks in advance.

    I posted this to the DH forum but I guess everyone there is still in school or out delivering papers.

    Checked it:
    I have a set of 5.10 Impacts sized "US10, Eur 43" and a set of 661 Duallies (the higher version of the launch I think) sized "US9.0, Eur 43".

    The soles of the 5.10s are around 4-5mm (~.2 inch) longer than the Duallies. Both fit me fine.
    In short, very different US size number, same Euro number, same size shoe.

    So... I don't know about your 12.5 size, but would suggest that you use their "Euro" size as a comparison to get the right 5.10.

    Great, that's what I was wondering. I usually get best fit when I go with Euro sizing, so I'll be ordering up some 47's from Ride SFO.

    Thanks again.

    Does anybody know which shoe has a roomier toebox? I have gone from a 11 to an 11.5 5.10 and still have some pinching in the toes. I think I may have to ditch the 5.10 line in favor of something else.

    Any suggestions?

    I don't believe the 661s are any roomier, though mine fit just right. I did read somewhere that the 5.10s may have gotten slightly smaller in the past few years.
