Good question, I should have included that in my post!

I am a very standard US Men's size 9, EUR 42, medium width with Morton's Toe.

The size 42's in these fit me perfect! Due to the low profile design and form fitting liner they take a little more time to "slip on" but the way the foot and heel is held in place I believe will increase security and confidence.

Hope that helps!

Are they bigger than your Baturas? jdejace

Great question and one I was asked on my Facebook page. I'm currently wearing one on each foot. The fit is strikingly similar to my Batura's (both are really comfy), the ACRUX feels slightly narrower at the forefoot than the Batura's, but I have two seasons on the Batura's and I'ld guess the insulation has packed out a little. Perfect amount of toe wiggle room for both. Standing on edge no notice-able heel slip in either. Bottom line they both fit my feet well. Hope this helps!
