Hi- this is a bit strange: i'm usually a 42(FR) size (8.5 US). so- i currently wear a 8.5 size Barricades, which fit pretty nice and feels secure, except maybe a little bit short at the toe. my next shoes will be the GR4, that's why i thought that if i'll buy the GR4 at 8.5 it will be perfect (a bit longer). so just to be sure I've done this "find shoe size" on TW shoe help, and i found my size to be 9.5 !! don't know whether or not it's a trusty test, but you say to wear my socks while testing, so i almost sure i did the measurements pretty precise (also take out 5mm after measure). anyway, i'm not sure which Asics size to buy, with the biggest problem of having to ship them to Israel, while they don't even have them here for me to try on ... any tips or ideas? thanks!
