Mine are a bit tight in the toe too, but okay. If I got another pair I'd go a half size up, especially if was wearing them in an ultra.
If Sports Direct sell 'em, I'll pop in and try.
Thanks for your answers.
Yup - As above take a 9 in Inov8, Saucony, etc but a 10 in the MT110's
thanks for your responses. I'll size up.
11 in everything else, 12 in MT110
The problem is the seam in the inner liner across the big toe which makes them feel smaller than they actually are. Great shoes but for the life of me can't understand why they would put a seam there.
Another vote for one size up.... I'm a 9 but a 10 in MT110's
I must say these are a really good trail shoe that crosses the gap between Merrell Trailgloves and Vivo's so you can run on anything.
I ran in mine for a couple of miles then run the C2C 45 miler with no issues, I've since brought another pair via Sports Direct mail order as shops are running out.
I review these and similar shoes in my blog:
Bizarre sizing. I'm an 8 in most things (mainly for the width). 8.5 in NB101 and should probably be 9 really. Shame I've got another pair of 8.5 on top of the wardrobe
NB road shoes I'm an 8 as usual.
ian, how did they feel on the canal section? I ran the C2C in my peregrine's and they felt a bit hard on the last 20.
Size 10 for me and I'm 9-9.5's in everything else...
I ran C2C in them and they were fine on the canal section, (wish I'd worn them for Thames Trot). I also ran the 50k London Ultra last weekend in them which was mainly road and once again they worked well for me. I do run pretty minimal these days though, and use VFF's for shorter runs and speedwork during the week - so I probably just don't need the cushioning.
At £35 / pair from Sports Direct I'm quite happy to use them on the road
Thanks GeeeM... Interesting.
Didn't I see you wore them for NDW100 too? I wondered how your feet/legs were after that in them? Think the question probably got lost on the other thread
100 seems a long way with no cushioning...
Yep, hadn't looked at that thread since...
Well, it's a 100-mile race - so my feet were pretty battered after nearly 24 hours, but I was relatively comfortable. The furthest I'd run in them before the NDW100 was 11 miles so it was a massive gamble to use them in a 100... I remember my achillies got a bit sore at around 30 miles but I got through that OK.
Having used the MT110's a lot since then on long runs from road, mountain, fell and trail I find that after 4-5 hours my achillies gets tight, but it always seems to go away after a while and I don't feel any after effects...
My "road shoes" are Brooks Green Silence, and I actually prefer less cushioning and heel drop these days to be honest, I guess it's just something you get used to after a while.
blimey... that was a bit risky, hope you had a backup pair in a drop bag just in case?
Well done for finishing in under 24hrs Will be delighted to just sneak in under 30hrs as it will be my first 100.
I have plenty of time to decide yet but thinking about maybe starting in the 110's and having my hoka's as backup for the second half if I feel the need.
