    So I have the KSwiss Big Shots in the blue/yellow special edition, I like em, and I want to get a basic white pair, too. The size 11 in the blue ones is noticeably longer and wider (fits perfect) than the white ones in the same size!! Why can't you manufacturers get the sizing right in the same shoe, just a different color!!?? I ran into the same thing with Nike Vapor 9s in two different colors!:confused:

    That's my vent for the day.......:)

    They give you the UPS label to mail it right back if it doesn't fit.

    This happens, for sure. I had identical Wilson shoes that fit differently (not surprising when you think of the company's racquet quality control), among others.

    I know, but its still an aggravation......one would think he could buy with confidence having worn the same shoe before.

    This is not surprising since shoes are largely hand made. Graphite racket is also hand layered too and 1/16 oz isn't major since the factories are turning out 100,000s of rackets.

    So I guess you are saying that the 15 year old Vietnamese girl that made your shoes shouldn't have been paid her $5 the day your shoes were made.

    So, I just got a pair of the white black volt Vapor 9 and they fit perfect in size 11. The aussie open with the red, the miami colorway and the French open SL were all too small in the same size.......sigh.
