Comfortable, heavy&stiff, STP sizing information appears incorrect

Reviewed by RSW from CA on Friday, February 24, 2017
This may be a good spin class & ride around town shoe for me, but not a replacement for the SIDI shoes I was hoping to replace. The shoes are very "plastic-y" with a few vents. They are heavy and stiff--for me OK for spin class. No optional spike attachments. SPD Cleat attachment area is nice & deep. The buckle is easy to adjust while riding.
Based on the other reviews indicating sizing confusion, the Pearl Izumi site for the Women's X-Alp Enduro IV has a sizing graphic.
The approximate sizing is:
38~6.4; 39~7.2; 40~7.9; 41~8.7; 42~9.6; 43~10.4; 44~11.1; 37~5.6; 36~4.8
My feet are 7 and 38 7/8 is generally ideal. I ordered a 39 and a 38 (before I looked at the Pearl Izumi site); the 39 is perfect and the the 38 is very much too small. See the Q&A section for this STP product, or the Pearl Izumi site for the actual graphic.
