True to size

Verified Buyer Reviewed by web from Midwest on Friday, August 19, 2016
After having some success with a half size up on a pair of Shamans, I decided initially to go up 1/2 size in the Nexxos from my street/running shoe size. It didn't make them significantly more comfortable, but it did leave a lot of dead space in the toebox. I returned them and got the size I should have gotten to start: 11, my street shoe size.

The fit is true to your street shoe size. The break in period hurts, but after a few days in the shoes I can tell that they are becoming more tolerable. When I pulled them out of the box i was disappointed by the apparent lack of 'love bump' that I enjoyed on LS Solutions, but as they break in I feel like my toes are deforming the rubber and creating a proto love-bump. The rubber seems less sticky than Sportiva rubber, but it also seems more durable.

For reference, my Evolv size is 11 in Defy, 11.5 in comfortable Shamans and Pontas, and 10 in LS Solutions. I have narrow feet and the Nexxo seems to be good for that shape. The Nexxo is easier to put on than the Solution, but the heel cup doesn't fit nearly as well as it does in the solutions.
