Hi all,

was going to order some 5 fingers online, but having looked at all the comments regarding proper sizing, I went to a local shop to try them on.
They only had size M 40 and 42. The 40's fit but were tight, while the 42's were too big. I did not get a chance to try the 41's. I used the rubber blue sizing thing to see my size. My big toe was on the line of 40-41.
I'm wondering, if I buy 41's online, will they be too big or will they be just right?

#2, what's the best pair to job in. I would use them to lounge and wear around, but also to jog in.

Thank you very much,
Marc

If you're going to run and lounge, get 2. I have one pair of treks for running and one pair for everything else. Also, depends on what type of running. Get Bikila for street/track or Treks for dirt/trails.

I agree , get 2 pairs for sure. The Bikila for great for street, i'm picky but find the trek a little to much.

I now own 3 pairs of classics.  My old beat up pair with ~900miles on them and recently picked up 2 pairs on sale.  1 will be designated for casual wear.

I would go with a pair of KSOs to start out they will be a great all around shoe.

yah, i've had KSO's, treks and now bikila's.  love running in bikila's, but running in KSO's are great too... didn't love running in the treks as much, but i'm sure they'd do better on trails
