Cool, thanks. I'm a solid US 11, and while my CPs at 44 aren't snug, they don't seem too big either. Going down to a 43 would definitely be the wrong size. I'm an 11.5 in Nikes, so my foot seems to be slightly bigger than yours. Perhaps a better fit would come with a half size down in the CPs, which aren't available. Given all that, I'll try the Butteros in a 44 - should offer a nice snugger fit. Thanks for the point of comparison bro.
No problem. I feel that a shoe to shoe comparison is best, since different people have different preferences in fit. For example, you like a snug fit, whereas I get slightly foot claustrophobic if I don't have a bit of room in the toe for me to move them around comfortably.
