Sidi vs Vittoria shoe sizes?

Anyone have experience with both of these brands and how they compare to
each other sizewise?

What size Sidi Genius would likely be required to get the equivalent to
43.5 Vittoria Blitz?

Apologies if I've asked the same question before here but I can't find the
answer now (and would appreciate more opinions anyway). Thanks.

If you've tried Specialized, Sidis are narrow compared with them. I had
Sidis in 45 -- too narrow. The Specialized (Comps?) are also 45, and a great
fit.

I sold the Sidis on Ebay.

I have the same experience: Sidis are narrow, I need at least 0.5 more
than other shoes. Shimano and Northwave are wider, but I have no
experience with Vittoria.

Ahhh, no. I have size 7 feet, but quite broad. I have a pair of
Specialized Rockhopper Comp shoes, size 9. They're OK on a ten mile
ride but on a longer ride they hurt my feet like hell because they're
too narrow (and because the 'Body Geometry' wedge _really_ doesn't work
for me). I have a pair of gorgeous SIDI leather boots in size (I think)
7 (nothing legible inside them now, but about 1.5cm shorter than the
Specialized) and they fit like gloves and are supremely comfortable.

SIDI make more than one width. I don't know how to tell which are the
'wide' SIDIs and which are the 'narrow' SIDIs, but the wide SIDIs are
much wider (and, for me, more comfortable) than Specialized. And SIDIs
are _so_ much better made.

I went from Vittorias (43) to Sidis (44).
