Are these true to size or are you guys going up one size on them?

Thinking to grab a pair. I'm EU 45, UK 10 on Giro Empires/Techlaces (though with a little toe room), but Spesh say their Sub 6's are EU 44.5 for a UK 10.

Not the exact same, but similar shoe, my sworks 6 I sized down. My previous shoes were 47, 46 is perfect for the sworks though.

Same size for me on empire vr90 like aac than on s works 6 and sub6

the last is 27,5 cm length in the two cases
Fit is different tough

Specialized has more support in the shoes
And the heel is much better hold

Thanks guys, in the end I had two pairs. 44.5 and 45. With the 44.5 (Spesh say that's the UK 10) my toes were touch the front. No wiggle room at all, felt restrictive. Went for the 45 and it's a touch better, but still a pretty tight fitting shoe compared to the Techlaces and Empires (in size UK 10).

Getting on that warp sleeve thing. Why is that so hard! Haven't actually taken them out on a proper ride, but am liking the streamlined look and fit of them. Maybe a free watt to be found in there :D

Sorry wasn't clear. I meant the Sub 6 and Sworks have the same last.
