Does or has anyone owned a pair and could you advise me on there fit? Thinking of buying some off the net and was wondering if they were a small, large, wide etc.

In reply to nedmoran:

they are generally narrow - but the ultra model is wider

the blue ones will stretch a bit when wet - so you may have to re-tighten them when they are wet - fab grip! wear in a bit like climbing shoes.

really you need to try some - and then you won't know til you've run off road in them.

In reply to nedmoran: I will sell you a pair of Walsh PB's size 9.5 if you like. Inov8 size 9.5 fit me perfect but the Walsh 9.5 are too small by half a size, my toes are cramped. Worn them for about 20-25 miles all in and given up with them.

In reply to jfw: I fully agree with 'try before you buy' with Walsh's. I had a pair that I used on my first LAMM (although I thought I had broken them in) and they completely trashed my feet on the first day (lots of contouring). For my next LAMM I used Adidas Swoops, and had no problems (apart from being very slow!). I've got narrow feet, and found the Walsh's too wide for the contouring.
