Yet another obvious but necessary question....

Buying my first road shoes.

Should they be a tight fit for ´performance´, a loose fit as your feet expand and toes get pushed forward or .. or.. ?

Thanks your advice

    Simply a good fit as you would have for any other shoes. If too tight, they'll strangle your feet (painful after a while) or you'll bang your toes; if too big, your feet will flop around in them and you'll possibly create toe overlap problems. Road shoes have more than enough adjustment to allow for feet swelling.
