10-1/2 were not available, so I accepted size 10, and that was good. My street shoe size is 9 US. In 2009, my son gave me a 9-1/2 VFSN002. I liked them very much but they were a little short in length that is why I ordered the 10-1/2 based on instruction on the web site. The size 10 I accepted are very much longer/bigger than my old 9-1/2. I added shoe pad inserts and wear thicker socks to make them fit. I may have to add another layer of padding to make them perfect. My conclusion: The shoes are now made bigger for the same size than in previous years. The new 9-1/2 will probably fit me best. These are great shoes although I like the feel and grip of the rubbers sole of the old batch in 2009 better. I would but the same shoes again when I need replacement, but probably in size 9-1/2.
