my Name is Stephan I'am from Germany, so please forgive my english which is not the best.
At the Moment I have got a pair of KSO EVOs in size 44 and a Pair of Spyridons (the original ones with the strap) in size 45. I tried the Spyridons in 44 and after walking around in them for half an hour my toes hurt, because they were to small. The Kso EVOs fit snug around the toes, but even when I wear them the whole day, I don't get Problems. Now I want to buy a pair of Bikilas (the original ones with the Strap) because I could need some running shoes. The KSO EVOs sole wears out to quick when running pavement in my opinion. I could also buy the Bikila EVOs but there is a sale on german Ebay at the moment for the original Bikilas, which makes them about half the price of the EVOs.
My Question is now, which size to buy for the Bikilas. I have tried a pair of Bikila EVOs in size 45 which was way to large, so I send them back. I don't want have another "sending back and ordering again" action, so I thought I just ask the pros here in the forum. Or do you say the Bikilas absolutly fail against the Bikila EVOs and the EVOs are worth the nearly double price? If you say so I would consider to buy the EVOs in size 44 and try them again.
