    Got a question.....

    What does a women's size 9.5 equall in men's sizing......a 9???

    I ask because there are some Shox on **** that I want to buy but they are supposedly women's size 9.5.....they are cheap and look exactly like a pair of MEN'S shocks that I had a few year's ago (and loved).

    I wear a 9 in these in men's sizing.

    thanks,

    I thought it was 1.5 shoe sizes. Men's 9.5 is a women's 8... but you might as well try them on in store. Beware that some shoes are gender specific such as running shoes. Men's and women's feet are different enough to warrant different builds for the same models. I don't know if that's true for tennis shoes, but definitely true for running shoes.

    ALL Nike shoes have a size difference of 1.5 between mens' and womens' shoes.

    That is true for length. But watch out for the width, the standard women's shoe width is B, which is narrow for man; men's standard shoe width is D.

    If you wear 9 in men's, than you would want to pick up 10.5 in women's...

    I saw this thread today and I went to local tennis store. They had CB 2.3 for both men and women. I saw women's 9.5 and I was curious how the shoe fits and what the difference is. Usually I wore 7.5. women's 9.5 shoes fit well and I really could not find differences.
