    Hello TW,

    How does the sizing compare? I saw in the description that the BF II's length fit is true to size. I normally wear a size 10-11 in an every day street shoe and have a pair of ladies Adidas Barricade IV's in a size 10.5 which are a bit too big lengthwise. The Barricade IV description also says that they run true to size, but again, mine were a little too big. I'm considering the Nike Breathe Free II, but wasn't sure of the correct size to get in order to get a good glove-like fit. Anyone have any insight? Does an Adidas Barricade IV size 10.5 = a Nike Breathe Free II size 10.5, or does the BF II run a little smaller?

    While both shoes include "Length fit is true to size", I've heard from a few players, including my wife, that the Breathe II is a about 1/2 size small. She goes up 1/2 size to compensate. Hope this helps! Don/Tennis Warehouse
