I bought my KSO s at a local retailer I got off the website. I have to wear women's size 41 lol because for some reason men's feet under 9 1/2 or so don't come in men's models. Anyways my KSO s fit perfect. I ordered a pair of komodosports the other day and got the same size. I hope they all run the same. I had to order em cause the local store doesn't carry the komodos.

Oh and I personally don't care that I have to order from the women's sizes lol. But seriously atleast make the same colors for both. I didn't get to choose the color I really wanted bright yellow. This was not even an option for womens models. Thankfully they did have my second favorite choice or I woulda been in trouble as the other 2 colors were too feminine.  Maybe something vibram can work on in the future.

There are a few people throughout this forum that boast that they are one size across the board for VFFs.  I am not.  I take a size bigger in the Sprints/Classics than I do in KSO.  Where I am not typical is I take two sizes bigger in the Speeds over my KSO size.  Mostly for width reasons, but I did not see an issue with overall toe length when I did this. 

You are lucky that you can get away with wearing women's sizing.  If you had short and wide feet, you might be out of luck where VFFs are concerned.  I agree that Vibram should either offer smaller sized men's products or offer more neutral color options in the women's sizing.  Until they do, your styles to choose from are pretty limited.

I am not the same size across the board.  I am spot on with any U.S. size chart you find.

I have two pairs of KSOs, one KSO Treksports and two Speeds. The Speeds were the only ones where I had to size down from a 37 to 36. Fortunately I'm in the US a lot this year where I have much better access to VFF retailers than in the UK, so it's fairly easy for me to go and try them on.
