I am wondering if anyone has purchased a pair of these and if so how was the sizing compared to whatever you had before. I have several pairs of Northwave, the most recent being the Revolution which are nice enough but they are heavy and actually not bad in the colder temps. The sizing from what I have read so far for the upper end shoes is getting narrower starting with the Extreme RR from back in 2016. I have a pair of the Extreme winter boots but they say that the Extreme RR is tighter yet compared to the winter boot of the same size. The sizing charts have not been very accurate from years ago cause I am supposed to fit in 42.5 but the 43 is as small as I can go. The sizing charts I have seen so far for these shoes are the same ones they have used since back in the Extreme Tech Plus days. It would be nice if they updated the charts.
Any info you may have would be greatly appreciated.

I was a 45 in Extreme Aerlites, then a 45 in Extreme RR but they were noticeably narrower and then I bought a pair of new extreme pro's in 45. The Extreme Pros were both narrower and shorter than the 2016 Extreme RR. I returned them...

Wow thats good to know, so they keep getting narrower and now shorter which makes it really tough to figure out your proper size when they use the old charts. My problem is I cannot find the Northwave online anywhere in Canada let alone locally which means I have to purchase online outside of Canada. This makes it difficult as you either have to guess at a couple sizes and hope one fit and return the other and I am not sure I want to tie up a$1000 in shoes. The other option is to order one size at a time and be patient with returning and reordering what you think is proper.
Did you plan on purchasing the proper size Extreme Pro cadd4rep?

Hi, I was reading this with interest as I am on the market for a new pair of shoes.
I also wear a 42.5 for everyday shoes, did you end up buying and what size?

Sorry doraymon I just noticed your post here today and I have recently purchased a pair of the Pros in 44 and they fit the same as my RRs but on another thread here it was said that the 40 doesnt fit the same. See the following from this thread
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=160294&p=1590062#p1590062

I owe a pair of Extreme RR in size 40 EU (6.5 UK). At the beginning of the year I decided to try the newer Extreme Pro, bought the same size and couldn't even manage to fit my foot in there.
I even have quite some experience wearing small footware since I've been a competition rock climber for several years and wearing climbing shoes 4 sizes below normal size is a normal practice.
The inside labels were reporting the exact same size in both the RR and Pro but I'd say the Pro was at least 1/1.5 sizes smaller than declared, surprised that maybe in certain sizes that's not the case...?
