    Hi, I was wondering how much of a difference in size is the Shb-98mx compared to the shb-99 ltd/Lo? Like I heard that the shb-98mx had a more narrow front part compared to the rest. So if I wear a 9.5 US, would I need to get a size 10 US or would it be okay to still use a 9.5 US?

    Thanks!

    stick with the same size.
    i have both the shb98mx and the shb99lo, and they're both 8.5US.
    i haven't had any issues in sizing for those, no complaints.

    the 98's are a tad narrower in all aspects, but really, you won't notice it unless your feet are shaped really oddly.
    if your feet fit the 98's well, you should be able to fit the 99's quite well.
    maybe you willl have to lace and tie your laces a bit tighter.

    going the other way around, from 99's to 98's?
    if you're 99's fit very comfortably and you have a touch of space to move about, then yeah, the 98's will fit.
    if the 99's fit tight, then don't bother trying the 98's.
