I say "true to size," but do take STP's advice and order a half size larger than normal -- standard for Asics. Really like the shoe overall, though Asics pushed back the top eyelets on these, meaning you either lace all of the eyelets and have no lace left over to tie it, or you leave the top eyelets unthreaded and don't feel like you have quite as much support. These are great for walking in and going to the gym in, and look phenomenal, but the lace/eyelet situation actually makes them less then ideal for aggressive jogging in my opinion -- they're just not quite as snug as other Asics I've owned.
