ABS shoe sizing
« on: August 07, 2005, 08:27:03 AM »
So I've got my check from Nationals and clearly I need to spend it ASAP and I am in the market for new shoes.  I want a pair of Tour Ultras, but I've read mixed answers about the sizing between ABS and Dexter shoes.  I've tried the search function, yes I know what that is, and have found people saying that the ABS run smaller, some bigger.  Is there a definitive answer or should I just order my normal size?

In street shoes i wear a 10.5-11, and in my ABS shoes im wearing a 11. They fit perfectly and leave just enough room at the toes.

Right now I'm wearing size 11 in Dexter SST5s.  Sounds like I'll just go with 11 in ABS, now I just need to pick the color.  Anyone else have input on this?

I formerly wore Dexter SST 1's and wore size 11. I recently bought a new pair of ABS Tour Ultra's in size 11 and they are OK although I think I may have been able to get by with a size of 10 1/2. Sort of a borderline case. I just know that I have a bit more room between my big toe and the end of shoes on the ABS than I did the Dexters. However, the ABS are a bit wider than Dexter's and
way-way-way  more confortable. Them being a bit wider may make it seem they are longer, I don't know.

Belch, if you haven't already, read my post above. Mine are like yours. I think it is the width as they are much wider than my old SST 1's and my everyday shoes that I wear. Extremely comfortable though.
