Normally I wear a 10.5 or 11, 43.5-44eu, in most brands, but I was told this bran runs about a full size small. Should I be ordering up a size, eu45/us12 to accommodate? Thanks for the help.

I just bought a pair of these and I'd have to say they run pretty dead on as have all Asolos I've owned. I had to go up 1/2 size with every Scarpa I own, but not these. The heal is slightly loose as others have said, but the structure of the shoe and the lacing is good, so that when you pull them tight at the top the back of the shoe gets snug without it feeling like you're tying a tourniquet around your ankle. These feel pretty comparable to the Scarpa Zen.
