    Winter shoe sizing

    During the winter use hiking boots with flat pedals and in the warm months go clipless so my question is should I get the same size or go half or a full size bigger to get space for thicker warmer socks?

    The thing with the hiking boots is that can't get a good grip on the pedals, have tried several brand of pedals and none work well due to the design of the boot sole I guess and not buying more boots just to try.

    45North is out of reach for me so currently looking at the Shimano SH-MW7 or something ankle high around that price range. Using winter socks on my regular shoes won't work, my current shoes are kind of narrow and will be too tight with thick winter socks and have breather areas that will cool down my toes and also the pedals will transfer cold to the sole of the shoe.

    Any pointers or suggestions welcomed.

    I went up a full size on my winter shoes. It lets you wear a heavier sock and gives some extra room for keeping warmer air in
