Anyone got any experience of Diadoras' sizing?

They come up big, small, bang-on??

Same as Sidi. So small.

My Sidis and Diadoras (both MTB and Road) are 43. Shimano, Specialized I'm 42. Normal shoes I'm usually 40 or 41.

So if I'm a 44/45 normally.. I'd be looking to get a 47 in Diadora?

Unless they've changed their sizing, since 2007 yes.

But you should really try them first anyway. They have a very narrow fit.

Aye. . . trying would be ideal...

Only considering it because crc have the 'Rove Comfort' in 47 for £25....

And I quite like them

Otherwise I'd just use my Vans until they give up the ghost :lol:

I have diadoras and they are lovely shoes but yup come up small. I'd say get at least one european size up on what you would normaly wear.

I've had two pairs of Diadoras - the first cheap mountainbike shoes were roomy and I took my normal size.

The second, dearer road shoes, were really small and the ratchet strap split long before the shoe wore out.
