Winter Boots + 1 size or 2 ?
Is your “normal” shoe a shimano shoe?
If so, I would say no more than one size and the would depend entirely on how your current normal shoe fits. I would say try some at your LBS and if your LBS doesn’t have the stock or won’t get them in without a commitment to buy, order from an online retailer with free returns and get a few sizes in to try at home.
With the mw81 I find them warm enough with summer socks until it gets icy, and then i use wooly boolie thick merino socks so you don’t need a boot that is huge for them.
Make sure you have your winter socks with you when trying on.
One more thing to consider; if you go too large with the shoe size, you may find you can’t get your cleats far enough back to be under the ball of your foot.
Bit of a long winded reply, hope it helps. I would get off my arse to look at my shoes but you really need to try em on 🙂Posted 4 years agomrelectricSubscriber
Very happy still with Shimano Mt81 one size up (42 to 32). Ace.Posted 4 years agomessiahMember
I’m a 44. I had 46’s a few years ago and they were great even in the worst wet and snow because I could wear very big socks; but they were too big and my foot would move around when wearing thinner socks so I went for 45’s last year. With the 45’s I can’t wear the thickest of socks and therefore get cold feet on the really silly days… but the rest of the time I’m happier as my feet don’t move about in my shoes.
I think the 45’s are a better compromise for me although if I was to be riding in snow a lot I would buy the 46’s.Posted 4 years agoCaptainSlowMember
The shimano boots are well insulated. These work well n the snow and warm up again after getting wet. I use em with me normal shoes till it gets cold enough for the mw boots.Posted 4 years ago
