The explanation between width sizes they give on the website is terribly misleading. They refer to the True Fit as being a wider, "standard" fit which implies it would be the equivalent of the standard retail fit. However this is not the case. The Tour Fit is still the closest to the retail version - albeit slightly narrower as I mentioned above.

Their width explanation fyi:
"This tennis shoe is available in a Tour Fit for a secure, locked-down feel on the court, and in a standard True Fit that's slightly wider for extra room."
Thanks for clarifying about the widths. I have played in two pairs of the IDs (both Tour Fit) and two pairs of the retail version. IMHO, the IDs run bigger by a small margin. While I agree that the difference is not huge, I feel that I'm a 10 in the retail, and 9.5 in the IDs.

Your experience may vary...
