If the toe es just kissing the end of the toe pocket, then it is fine, for some, the same size works, for some not, that is why you should "feel" the fit and maybe the same 45 is good enough in both models. If you have found a size that fits, then Good for you ! Not everyone finds a good fit. <I could not get a good pair of spyridons even though I love the model>.
Spyridon, for me, has the least, and not because I do not like the model, in fact, I wanted some so bad but they did not fit <tooooo wide for my 40> . The speed has more than the trek sole. About the classic/sprint, I have not tried them, should I?
I measured my feet again. If i push it to the wall (not with force) and push the ruler to it, then i can measure 10.5 inches too. My measures are 10.5" (little pushed) to 10.7" but in 42 spyridons, my big toe reached the end of the toe pockets in the store. I didn't tried 41 but I also tried 43 treksports and they had a little bit larger toe pockets for me. Should I go 42 in seeyas and 41 in treks? Or 41 both? or 42? are these both able to stretch with some time and break in 0.2 inches? I don't need socks
I can't try these on here and I dont think i can send back if i chose wrong:/
Monkeyshoes: do you have seeyas? If yes, what size? How does it fit? What is your shoe length?
I think you should check the fit with both, 41 and 42, and no, I do not have the seeyas but want them, the seeya ls.
I think the mod is fine with the treks, spyridon and komodos, because they have fabric between the toes, as for the mocs and trek ls, I think there should be some precautions because there is leather between the toes, not fabric; and I would think it is somehow different to stitch leather than fabric. Anyhow, post your results, those pictures help others.
