Size guide does not help
All the effort put into measuring feet and using the length of the shoe on the inside etc etc came to nothing. The shoes, like the majority of clothes and shoes associated with cycling, are not as big as advertised. I would require a half size bigger if the shoe was to be the correct length for my foot, this would be an 11 1/2 in NW Raptor size where by the measuring guide on this website my feet are a 10. I have done a couple of hundred miles in them and my toes remain in contact with end of the shoe despite some loosening up in other places. The description of average wide should also carry the caveat "for a cycling shoe". They are in no way a wide fit for a shoe. On the plus side, they are well made a warm, it is already cold up here in the highlands.
This goes also for the gloves I bought for my partner and returned almost before she even tried them on! We measured her hand, consulted the size guide and the gloves on arrival are fit for a small child.
