I wear a 38 in KSOs, so I ordered a pair of 39 in Sprints. Why does the size chart say to size up on the Sprints? Is the sole of the Sprint in size 39 supposed to be the same as the sole of the KSO in 38? The Sprints arrived yesterday and the sole is bigger than the one on my KSOs. When I put my big toe all the way forward in the Sprints, there is a bit of room in the heal (fits kind of baggy). I can tighten the heal straps to make it work, but I am wondering if I should get them in a size 38 instead. Are they supposed to fit like this?

My foot measures 9 and 2/8
Thanks for any responses (I also posted this on the size/fit board).

I wear 42 in bot KSO and Sprint. Perhaps if you fit very tightly in your KSO's upgrading is a good thing to do. for me it is not.

Are the soles on your KSO and Sprint the same length?

i dont know if its any different with the newer kso's but i have several pairs of classics two pairs of sprints and kso's komodo's flow treks and they are all a 42 every single one of them the new red sprints feel a touch snug but i think thats cos the red sprints feel like a different material but even though snug still very wearable.
