    I just received the pair of new Sidi Vertigos I bought off of eBay. Now I normally wear a size 8.5 (Euro 42) but after putting these boots on, they kind of feel loose around the ankle. Would this be a bad thing? My toes are almost at the tip of the shoes with little room to spare so I'm not sure if I can go a size lower. Also, if I extend my foot like going on my tippy toes, I can feel my heel come off about an inch off the bottom of the boot.

    I got a great deal on these and would hate to list them on eBay again, but would it be a safe bet to order a pair of 41s off newenough to see if they fit then sell the 42s?

    I found them a bit wide

    but the more I wear them, the more they seem to fit me better

    Well, I got the size 41 and they feel more snug than 42 but I have less up and down movement with my feet. Also, I can hardly wiggle my toes. Gotta try them on a bike soon...
