I have had some Nike Altea for 5 years and they have done a good job. But lately I have finally ground down the heels with the odd bit of walking around Tesco Express and standing in carparks, the sole plate on the left is coming loose and no amount of superglue will keep it together. No big drama and time to upgrade.
So I saw some nice Mavic Zxellium on ebay, my size 10, only used on the turbo apparently. I sniped them good and when they arrived they were indeed in good nick. However they looked very skinny. True enough they were 10s but an EU 44.5 not 45 like the Nike. Trying them on they fit just but tightly. I couldn't imaging wearing them for hours at a time. I have had problems with my right big toe getting numb (probably just the way I flex my foot.)
I pride myself on my ebay skills so am not worried about getting my money back, but I now need to look again. Maybe I could size up in the Mavic. Sidi are supposed to be the bee's knees, what are they like? Can anyone recommend some brands that have a wider fit, as apparently Europeans also have very skinny feet.
