Just ordered my first pair of serious running shoes. Asics 2170. They arrived yesterday.I'm stumped on whether to return them or not.
I'm currently running in some cheap Nike shoes in size 8.5. They're a little tight, with the toe right on the egde.
So i ordered the Asics in size 9. When i tried them on yesterday there was an awful lot of room at the toe end. Almost a toenail length. They don't feel a big shoe as its quite a compact design but i'm worried about them slipping. I can just about get a finger down the back of the shoe.
I rang SportsShoes.com today and asked their advice. I wondered whether it was worth me getting size 8.5s sent out. The Nikes i have are too small but are there differences between Nike and Asics sizes?
The lady on the phone recommended i keep them, as they always suggest having some room at the front as your toe moves forward when running. Seems reasonable advice but i can't work out if she's just telling me that so i don't send them back, or is it genuine advice.
I obviously can't use the shoes until i decide what to do. Once i run in them i can't send them back.
Anyone else had this issue on Asics sizes? Any advice is much appreciated.
