Yea, definitely on the thicker end, but I like it way more than the stirrup style. Way more stable, and this is a lot faster to put on. I might just grab a pair of the Babolat SFX3 since I know those fit pretty well, and they're only $55 right now. Pretty insane deal. If Adidas is having as much trouble selling the Stycon as it seems then the price should drop further. I'm honestly pretty disappointed with how fast the sole is wearing out on my SCB.Oh ok that's looks thick! I know a few guys who wear braces like that. I can't tell you how stable the Stycon will be if you're wearing that, because you may lift your foot a little higher in the EVA rim cradle. It's really lowdown, and the cradle gives it that extra stability. You may also want to get 0.5 and 1 size up as well and return the ones that don't fit. It's a snug fit.
