Cool but Sizing Issue...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8.5

Although I am pretty consistent size 9 across most shoes, Salomon running and boots, or 9.5 LaSportiva, these are at least a 1/2 size if not full size big. Ordered 8.5 based on reviews but need 8. Thankful for Backcountry's awesome returns as otherwise these look perfect for training and lifting.
