Unparallel Rubber

Any thoughts as per length wise? Know that's pretty specific. My 5.10 Freerider Pros are just the right length at 11.5.... if UP any shorter i'll need a 12 but those aren't on sale at MTBD so trying to make 11.5 work. I suppose i could just return but there's $20 and a hassle.
I have two 510s in US12, a pair of Bontragers in US13, and the UP Dust Ups and the Westridge in US12. Overall I feel they all fit the same, if you asked my to choose I would say the Unparrallel shoes are slightly larger than the 510s and slightly smaller than the Bontragers. In my experience if you fit a 11.5 in 510 youll be fine with an 11.5 in UP.

FWIW, the Unparrallel shoes are my favourites of the lot - the grip is as good as 510 and the construction is a bit more advanced. Im sure youll love them.

For anyone with general interest....
My Northwave Ghost XCM shoes are a snug 42eu (they are very deliberately tight)
I usually wear 43 EU in other shoes

Took the gamble on Uplinks in 42.5EU (9.5US) and they will do fine for trail duty but a half size down would probably be a little better.

What I don't get is why the toe box area is so friggin tall at the lowest laces.
Do DH/Trail riders have super fat feet?

When I lace em tight, they puff up. Remind me of my 90's Globe skate shoes

Mine dont do this - are your feet narrow?
From looking at them they look the same as my Bontrager and 510 shoes?
