Hey Darklore, if the question was for me, I do prefer the 2K10(mix with my dr. scholls insoles) better. I dont want to give a final thought since I just used them once, but by the end of the week I can give more feedback.
In regard the size, I just put the 2k10 in one feet and the air max cage in the other to compare and both 10.5 are the same(same distance from toe to the front of the shoe), so I dont know where TW came with that idea. I think many people are use to that "snug feel", so maybe that's why the recommendation.
Im naturally a 10, but I always buy half inch bigger cause I put my insole and cause I like always half inch space from toe to the tip of the shoe. So I guess goes by preference of the shoe. But I will said the shoe is true to size.
