I'm considering a purchase of the Lasportiva Genius. How does sizing for this model compare to the TC Pro? I wear a size 41 TC.

I don't have an exact answer, but I would recommend checking out

You can create an account and add the shoes you already own (like the TC Pro) and then search fro the Genius and see what the site recommends (and how other folks who own both shoes are sizing them).

I have TC pros in 40 and 40.5, and I went with Geniuses in 39.5

39 in the Geniuses was too tight for me

I also wear 40 in most other Sportiva models (Miura, Miura VS, Katana, etc)

If you can try on Solutions, they should take the same sizing as Solutions

I have TC pros in size 40. My genius is size 39.5. I also wear other sportivas in 39.5 (Miura lace, Miura xx, katana lace)

Similar to what others are saying, about 1/2 to a full size up from geniuses. I have 38.5 Genius and 39.5 TC's (all day fit). I'll be getting my next TC's in a 39.

Sizing is pretty similar in my size range (43-44 ish).

i wear 43.5 in TC Pro's and 43 is genius/futuras. Could definitely get away with 43.5 in geniuses.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
