My size is 9 1/2 but I usually wear a 10 for ice climbing thinking about trying a 9 1/2 lasportiva cube for ice climbing can you tell me about the toebox ?

I wear the same size in Sportiva as I wear in street shoes.

I wear 9.5 in Nikes and 42.5 in Sportiva Nepals, Baturas, and G2SMs. I wear 43 in Trangos.

Every street shoe fits you the same? Really? You also wear the same socks on the street as on the ice?

The Nepals have a wide for box.
The Trangos fit very narrow along the whole foot.
The Baturas fit like the Nepals, except the heel has a low ankle cup. I find it doesn't lock my heel down. Others have no problem.

If you're looking for a wide boot also check out Scarpa Phantom.

Manufactures have different lasts even between their own models.

The best way is to go to the store and try on different boots. Go at the beginning of the season when they have everything in stock. He you'll pay full price but you'll have the right but that you only bought once.

Did you really not understand my comment? Really?

Let me be more specific for you:

My actual foot measure - 9.5
La Sportiva Nepal - 9.5 (42.5)
Nike - 9.5

WOW SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND

I now understand that you own ONE pair of street shoe.

Yup, I own the one single pair of Nikes that Nike has ever manufactured. It's a tough life living in the ghetto.

I wear 10 street shoe and sized the Nepal Cube up to 10.5 as I felt like my toes were going to bang in the 10. Happy with the 10.5

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
