    I switched from the Katanas 43.5 to these in 43 because I have wider feet. My toes were tight to the max but the heel was loose and sloppy. After breaking in the toes are great, edging is great but heel hooks, forget it; fart noises when you walk in them, yup; smurf feet, yep (they stain your feet blue)

    The shoes are very comfortable within the toe box. The heel is still breaking in and occasionally digs into the back of the ankle. I originally bought size down like my other shoes, but soon realized I need a half size larger.
