Hi everyone. I've been wearing a pair of Bikilas for the past month -- first pair of VFF.
Size is M40.
I recently bought a pair of Speeds, size M40, online and wow they seem to be tight across the width of my foot but where my toes are in the shoes (not tip but "end" of toes, closer to ball of foot). I've worn the Speeds for about 2 hours in the house and it wasn't feeling any better or "looser". Now the shoes don't seem painful but they are more noticeable in tightness in the toe compartment area compared to my Bikilas. When I took them off you could see the indentation on both big toes and pinky toes where the stitching is on the Speeds. It's hard to describe, sorry.
My question is what do you "gain" but going up a size? Meaning, am I only going to get longer shoes if I go to a M41 or will it be wider as well? I don't think the length is the issue but my guess is the width isn't going to change by going up a size to a M41. *shrug*
Thanks for any input/information and, again, this is specific to the Speeds.
