I am trying to purchase a pair of the team VXI, but not sure about the sizing. I am currently in a pair of 6.5 team black and 7 old blackwing. Could someone help me out here?

I own the XVI, but none of the other shoes. I wear a size 11.5 street shoe and the size 11 XVI fits me well. A size 11.5 might work well too, someone with a wide foot would almost definitely need a size 11.5. I hope that comparison helps. Actually now that I think about it, Five Ten sizing seems pretty standard across most of the models/lasts that I've tried. If I want a tight fit I go with a size 11. If I want a more loose fit I bump to 11.5. I have the Quantum's in a size 12 since the sole is super stiff and I bought them for all day multi-pitch comfort.

I am a half size smaller in the Vxi team than the black team.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
