Do the Nike Air Court Ballistec 3.3's run big on anyone else?

    I have two pairs of Nike running shoes and my old pair of Nike Air Vapor V's are all 12's. Also, my last pair of shoes were the Adidas Clima Cools that are green and I have them in 11.5 since I know Adidas runs smaller.

    So I bought a pair of Ballistecs in 12 and they seem to be a little bigger than the others.

    Anyone else had this problem? It feels like I got about an inch left in the shoe from my big toe so not sure if I should get 11.5

    i found the 2.3s to run half a size large.
    it looks like that may have carried over to the 3.3

    I did not buy the shoes yet but tried at the local shop.
    I thought same thing like you.
    I wore size 7 for CB1.3 then 7.5 for 2.3.
    size 7.5 of 3.3 was roomier than 2.3 so I tried size 7. it fits better but I had a little tightness. it might be okay after break in period though. still not sure which one might be better.

    Yes. I just discovered to my chagrin that my size 11.5 gray Rafa CB 3.3s are too big. I haven't even worn them for tennis yet, I just wore them for 3-4 times walking around and to the gym on the elliptical. I thought they fit at first, but they are definitely too big:confused: I'll have to get some size 11.
    Anyone who wants a pair of 11.5 that are close to new email me thru my profile, we can work something out maybe.

    So I went to the local SA and tried on the black/yellow in size 11 and they fit so I used a cash discount card and gift card and got those........now if I just had a yellow GHOAT to go with them, how awesome would that be???

    I wear mine with Thorlo L3 and they're heavenly.

    L3 are too much thickness for me in the size 11, I will have to wear normal thickness sox with these, hopefully I can wear the Elite BB sox comfortably with them.

    Do you recommend going a half size down? I wear size 13 normally but 12.5 in the 2k10s so how would the sizing compare?

    I wear an 11 in the 2k10, and just got the 11 in the black 3.3. The 3.3 is a much more snug fit than the 2k10 because of the way the tongue is attached, but the 11.5 is too long in the 3.3 for me.

    i just got my 3.3s today and they're a little snug in width which was fixed by lacing slightly differently, but the length feels about the same. i wear a size 14 in everything.

    Upon further inspection, trying on the 11 black and walking around they are deinitely too tight, I will have to go back and trade these for 11.5s. I wore the grey Rafa's yesterday for a little hit with the wife and they were fine as long as my socks are thick enough. The Nike Dri fit Tennis sock with the gray heel like Rafa wears and the Nike Elite BB sox with the 3.3 in 11.5 are a good combo for me.

    same issue

    I tried on the 10s and the 10.5s. The 10.5s--the heel dragged up a bit though didn't slip. Not a problem on the 10s--but on those the toe felt a little cramped.

    10.5s felt a lot better with two pairs of socks, but then the side of my feet were killing me because that made the width a problem.

    Craziness; did not have this problem with the Baricades.
