ok, what size inov-8's should I get?

Ok so I'm getting all into this. I bit the bullet and purchased the oly lifters. Now I'd like to get some inov-8's for my wife and i. I'm just not sure what size to get for us.

If it helps, I wear a size 10 in converse all stars low top, and my wife wears a size 8 in the new balance minimus trails. what would be the correct sizing for us? i ordered a 10.5 in the oly lifters and feel they will fit perfectly, as i tried the 11's in store and they were JUST a tad too big.

I'm guessing she should stay with 8 and I should stay with 10.5, but just wanted to make sure before i purchased online.

oh wow, just saw the same site has the nb minimus for cheaper, perhaps it'd be best to go to a local store tomorrow and size them and buy them online lol.

Re: ok, what size inov-8's should I get?

I wear a 9.5 Reebok Nano 2.0, a 10.5 Reebok RealFlex Transition and usually 9.5 or 10 in most shoes. Sizing is all over the place. The big thing I noticed about my Inov-8's, size 10, (I think I have 230's?) is that they have a pointy, tapering toe that leaves extra material hanging out in front of the shoe. I found it to be really annoying and so I switched to the Nano's, but I did like the sole and grippiness of the shoe. Just wish they were a bit wider and had a rounder toe instead of that silly point!
