    Could be that they actually reflect correct sizing now - my mate's just bought a pair to replace his old sl's and took a 42 in the new one, but a 44 in the old pair...

    And can anyone tell if they will do them in wide fitting like the old ones? With all the blurb talking about how wonderfully close fitting, with a new last etc I suspect that they will no longer suit my podgy feet. Shame as I liked the SLs (and luckily saw 'progress' like this coming so picked up a spare pair of old style ones ).

    to Gneiss Boots - no, I asked that too. just the one width fitting, somewhere between the old 'regular' and 'wide'.

    to Mole - thanks, but I bought the 'old style' Scarpas

    Saw something like an SL in size 50 in Nevissports Kendal I think. They looked huge!! I'm a size 9 which is 43 IIRC but an extra 7 on that makes the sho look almost barge like. What is 50 in old sizes? what 13, 14 or higher??

    BTW what does tha activ mean? Is that a marketing phrase to get people to buy the new release or is it really a big improvement for some reason?

    I'm a 13 = 49, so 50 would probably be 14. Yes, my wife regularly reminds me I'm an ogre...

    Well, I think it depends, mikey. If you were 5'2" you'd be hobbit with those feet, but you might be well over 6' and perfectly proportioned

    That's interesting, might try on a set of size 48s out of curiosity (just had a set of size 49 SLs resoled, but one needs to plan ahead when one's feet are this size).
