    In my expierience Fizik runs larger than Shimano. In Shimano I found a 45 too small. I currently wear a 45 in Fizik with an orthotic- a little long but I can wear them all day in comfort. Fiziks look great long term- just dont look as beat up as some of the others over time. S-Works are the worse for wear- great shoe but finish is gone in no time, eg toe-overlap.

    Thanks for that. I am planning to check them out tomorrow. I wear a 46 Shimano but it's just right-ish. If the Fizik is 0.3-0.5 sizes lomger/wider I just be good.

    I contacted Garmin and they were very helpful. Since they didn't offer the gasket itself, they offered to send me an upgrade pack with not one single pod like I used to have on my Vector 2s, but two pods so I can install them on both pedals (worth 287$) ! You can say what you want about their products, but their customer service is awesome and I'm very happy !

    Fizik shoes are three bolt whereas I use two bolt SPD pedals. No Fizik shoes in my near in my future. Regarding sizing, my limited "try it on" experience has me in a 46 in Shimaon, Pearl Izumi, and Fizik. Fit feels similar, but I would need to have my footbeds (Specialized Body Geometry) and some time in the pedals to provide a better evaluation. But if I fell into a smoking good deal on shoes and pedals, Fizik would fit the bill.

    Just get the gravel version of the Fizik road shoes, they are SPD compatible.

    I had not considered that option. Now I need to find a local shop that carries MTB shoes as I want the waterproof winter version anyway. Thanks!

    Finally the upgrade kit didn't solve my problem so they simply send me a pair of Vector 3 pedals ! Sweet :D
