Default Romaleos2 sizing question.

I can wear either a 8 or 8.5 in Nike's with the latter being just loose enough that a thicker sock usually does the trick but in reading up on weightlifting specific shoes I hear tighter or snug is better. A Nike's running shoe in 8 is snug to where no sock or a thin sock fits best. For a Romaleos2 I'm thinking a 8 would be a better choice. Yes?

By the way... my feet are wide so I've opted for this model specifically... a Do-Win would be my 2nd choice.

I lift in Romaleo's 1's, and you would be right. 8 would probably work best and will allow the leather to stretch out a bit as you get used to lifting in them.

I wear a 10 in regular shoes and I got a size 10 in the Romaleos, The fit was spot on.
