    I’m a 10, so that means as they’re Shimano they’ll be too small 🙄 🙄

    Gunner, you may be lucky if you’re a gambler. 😀

    In the old days (Oh, f**king hell, not again ), what we did was to buy a leather shoe half to one size smaller than our normal, smother it in linseed oil and sleep overnight in. This would s-t-r-e-t-c-h the leather permanently and in the morning, you’d have a perfectly fitting pair of shoes on which you could see each toe, like clenching a fist in a leather glove. 8)

    The gamble comes in finding out if these new shoes could adapt like that. 😳

    No, no good.

    These are Shimano, when they say 10, which I am, they mean 8, which is far too small.

    No amount of linseed oil, sunflower oil, or cod liver oil would stretch these 😆 😆

    Hm, as a final thought, I’m thinking ‘garden shears’ and ‘toes’! 😳

    I’m a 10 as well and have a pair of 44 Shimano MT31 – can just get by with a thin pair of Parker 1000 mile socks.
