- MTB shoe sizing – Please help!
Buying online is really the only way to get an SPD shoe for what I consider a “reasonable” price, but it does have its pitfalls – namely sizing.
I am a 10.5 extra wide in my school shoes (they are properly fitted) and 11 in trainers.
Some people seem to say you should go a size up for mtb shoes – but is this the case just for cheap shoes, or throughout an entire manufacturer’s range?
Shoe I’m looking at is here.
Based on sizing from Wiggle, should I go for 46, 47, or 48?
Any advise would be helpful.

all the makes are different sizes. The only way is to try a pair on. i wear shoes that range from 43 to 47.
Depends on the shape, the width, the toe box height, how fitted you want them, whether you ever intend to wear thicker socks on intend to stick with thin summer socks, etc.Posted 9 years agowoffleMember
Generally I’m a size 8 and find Shimano size 8’s are too small for me – I’d go up one size at least. It’s all a complete lottery though – my shoes, cycling or otherwise, range from size 7 to size 10, dependent on maker and design. It’s a right royal PITA.
As mentioned ^^ if you can, I’d really recommend trying to find a pair locally to try on first. It’s the only way you’re going to guarantee not having to go through the rigamarole of returning them for a refund / different size.Posted 9 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber
i wear one size larger in shimano shoes, they seem to be made smaller, you/i’ll get flamed for this but why not try on in a bike shop then see if they will match online price or buy online anyway
that said, 3 out of the last 4 pairs of shoes i’ve bought have been from a shopPosted 9 years ago
