I recently purchased some shoes to go with my roadie, and was given these by the assistant. I thought they felt a little big but he said that should be right. The size was EUR 45, which sounded about right... until later I found out Bontragers run big! So EUR45 = US12, rather than 10-10.5-ish.
Kinda silly seeing as though I bought locally for my first pair of shoes, just to make sure they fit right! And I'd feel like a d*ck going back into the store after wearing the shoes riding a few times...
Anyway. Your loss is my gain. These are 2013 model shoes, paid $150, sell for $80 including shipping anywhere in Australia.
Been ridden a total of 4 times, around 200km. There is a little nick on the rear of the shoe where I slipped down the stairs (didn't fall down them though, luckily!) and a little bit of wear from walking maybe 50m in total.
This is obviously a stock pic to give you an idea how they look. If you are interested and want proper pics, happy to supply.
What size do you normally buy when buying normal shoes in Australia? I usually buy size "10".
I am usually a US10. I believe here in AUS we usually use US sizing, at least when it comes to men's shoes.
These shoes are US12 / EUR 45.
I think what caught the salesman out is that in Shimano sizing, EUR 44 is a little bit smaller than US10, and EUR45 is around 10.5... At least according to the size charts that I have seen online.
FWIW I bought EUR44 Shimanos (arrived today) and they fit perfect.
But long story short. If you are after size 10's I think they will be too big for you. If you're a size 12, they should be sweet!
Thank's jimboss, too big.
Though as much, all good!
Going on eBay tonight. I don't think I am allowed to post the link here, so obviously won't be doing that.
Judging by how crazy people get on eBay, they'll probably go for more than what I'm asking here... so if you want them, get at me before they go on around 7pm tonight!
