How much room? They should feel firmish without squeezing your feet or toes. My first bike shoes were Shimano wide as the standard width felt a bit tight. If it helps, I've now got some Northwave shoes and the standard width feels the same as Shimano's wide fit.

Shimano's standard shoe size is a pretty narrow fit. Suits me just fine :wink:

Canondale and Specialized seem to do wider shoe sizes that I'd be swimming in.
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.
