It's a touch longer than vapor in the toe box, but that doesn't justify going half a size small.
So I would recommand true to size.
Magista X Promixo 11.5
Superfly IV 11.5
Hypervenom Phantom 11.5
Mercurial X 11.5
Magista Obra 11.5
I had initially bought the Obra in 12 on the advice of most of the free world that they run small, but I found the 12 to be too big, and I got a bit of rollover. 11.5 is nice and locked in for my foot.

Morelia II (MII) - US 8 (26.0 cm / EU 40.5)
I'm a UK8 - but seeing as a few brands have their UK sizing a bit messed up (ie Adidas, New Balance, and Diadora are half a size small so I need 8.5) I often find it easier to just look at the US sizing where US9 is usually my size (thats why I've listed the US sizes first despite being from the UK)
I have bought various other boots over the last 5 years, but the ones listed below are the ones that I've actually played or trained in for a substantial amount of time. The exception being the Copa Mundial, which I haven't owned for a few years and the last time I had them they were half a size bigger than the size I have listed below and they were definitely half a size too big for me - the the Copa size I have listed here is ideal the size I should wear.
Also worth mentioning that I have a Roman shaped foot (ie wide fore foot) so often find it hard to find boots that fit me. The Indonesian Morelias took 10+ hours of play before they were comfortable in the toe box, compared to the MiJ ones which took 10 seconds Breaking the low toe box in on the LZs was also a slightly painful experience.
Morelia II SI (MiJ) - JP 27
Morelia II FG (Made in Indonesia) - US 9 / UK 8 / JP 27 / EU 42
Predator LZ SG - US 9 / UK 8.5 / JP 27 / EU 42.7
Predator LZ AG - US 9 / UK 8.5 / JP 27 / EU 42.7
Copa Tango 17.1 TF - US 9 / UK 8.5 / JP 27 / EU 42.7
Copa Mundial - US 8 / UK 7.5 / JP 26 / EU 41.3
Speciali Eternal Pro AG - US 9 / UK 8 / JP 27 / EU 42.5
Just for reference I like to wear all of my boots very snug and my toes to be right at end leaving almost no space. These are all boots I have worn or currently have in my collection.
I also really enjoy the cushion and currently wear either Nike Grip Socks or Trusox every time I play. Back when I played in college I used to wear a cushioned Nike DriFit Crew sock for training or a crew sock under my game sock since those were usually pretty thin back then.

This thread has been useful to me. Thanks.
I'm usually a US size 9, but with wide feet. I just bought some Puma Ignites that were very narrow even after going up to 9.5. They feel like even if I went to 11, they still would be too narrow.
From this thread, I'm going to try adidas, as they appear to work for wider feet.
Agree about best to try them in a store. I'd prefer to do that, but even though I live in a big city, there aren't any places with a good selection of artificial turf / hard field shoes.
I remember discussing with you how you and I share the exact size, and now after trying more boots I have an idea about my sizing, my foot is Greek-shaped, so that 2nd toe is the one responsible for that extra half size I go for, what confirmed that is my experience with the Kaiser 5 Liga and the Speciali Eternal, I went for US 8 / UK 7.5 / JP 26 / EU 41.3 with the Kaiser (same as you), the fit is snug and perfect, except for some pain in my 2nd toe, I have a pressure there that even changes the shape of it. While with Speciali I went for US 9 / UK 8 / JP 27 / EU 42.5 (same as you again), there's no pressure on my 2nd toe, there's even 2 or 3 millimeters of space, which is nice, but the boot is slightly bigger than my whole foot, I sometimes feel my foot moving and slipping inside it, I don't know what would happen if I opted for the 42 EU size of that boot, but I opted for 42.5 EU as a caution. So my conclusion is my exact real size is something between the Kaiser 5 US8 and the Speciali US9.
Yesterday I tried the Tiempo Legend 7 US9, it felt tight to be honest.
So, now after buying the Nike Premier 2.
Here's the actual situation.
adidas Kaiser 5 Liga FG - 8US : Perfect fit except for my 2nd toe which's taller than the others, I have a Greek-shaped foot.
Umbro Speciali Eternal Pro AG - 9US : toe problem fixed, but the boot became looser after a while, I have to wear thick socks.
Nike Premier 2.0 FG - 9US : Exactly the same as the Kaiser.
So as a conclusion, if I'd bought a 8.5 US Speciali, it would've fit me exactly as the Kaiser 8US and Premier 2 9US.
Which leads to this sizing for me :
adidas Kaiser : 8US
Umbro Speciali Eternal : 8.5US
Nike Premier 2.0 : 9US
Hi, this thread has helped me pick the right size for the Mizuno Monarcida SW KL that I am planning to buy (though I still have some questions), so I'd like to add my own experiences. I wear 9-9.5 US sneaker, and I'm usually a size 9 US on average for football boots, with a 27.3cm long right foot (left foot maybe 27.2cm). I also have really wide feet.
Diadora Brasil OG Blackout - US 9: too large at US 9, It's definitely a half size too big in general- Always order half a size down from your regular size if you want to get these.
Diadora Brasil OG 2016 regular colorway-US 8.5: Uncomfortably tight unfortunately, I think this will eventually stretch out for a tight but doable fit, but I strongly suspect that this model has different proportions than the Blackout edition, for example the heel cup is at least 1.5 mm shorter than the one on the Blackout, and the plate is clearly narrower. I suspect it is an overall more slender make compared to the newer Blackout version of the OG Brasils. I'd also add: avoid the Diadora Brasils made in 2016 (you can tell by the all black studs on standard black/white colorway), because these have clearly inferior quality to the ones released after the blackout edition, the leather quality of the blackout version is vastly superior to the one on the original release model. Anything that is as new as the Blackout edition or newer is possibly fine, though I can only say for certain about the Blackout edition. The Blackout OG's have the best leather I have ever found on football boots (so far), and fits wide feet up to EE comfortably.
Nike Tiempo IV- US 9.5: Fits fine, seems about a 1/3 size smaller than standard US 9's, I think US 9 for this model would be too small, while the US 9.5 is roomy but not too big, perhaps if it was 2 mm shorter it would be perfect. The plate is medium wide, comfortable for up to an E wide, probably not suitable for anyone over a 2E though.
Munich Gresca US 8: Full size smaller than usual. Very good indoor shoes, extremely comfortable for up to 3E wide feet, can fit up to 5E in my view. K-Leather at the toes helps with stretching. Best Futsal shoes I have worn.
I want to comment about Copa Mundial because in my experience I find that they are absolutely NOT suitable for wide feet. I have gone to the store and tried them on based on some recommendations about Copa Mundial for wide feet, and what I find is that they are FAR from suitable; the leather quality is excellent and will likely stretch enough, but the plate at the toe box is even thinner than most brands nowadays- you will have MASSIVE overspill problems if you are over a 3E. I really think Copa Mundial should not be recommended at all for wide feet.
Okay I wear size 10 in the new superfly 8s size 10 us and I want to buy superfly 5s and vapor 11s will they fit me good in size 10 like will I be able to play in them without pain I just need some help before I go buy them tonight please
