Mavic women's shoes sizing

Hey ladies. Does anyone have experience with Mavic shoe sizing? I wear 38 Spec (mtb and touring), Nike road and Diadora road, but the CRC man has been spectacularly unhelpful with whether they equate to a 38 or 38.7 Mavic. Anyone?

Sorry, weg, never tried Mavic. But I feel your pain. Clothing and shoe sizing varies so much between brands (not just cycling...) despite many pretending there is some sort of equivalent standardisation :evil:

This chart is a bit old but is comprehensive and connects Mavic with the standards but more usefully with an actual footlength. No idea about widths. http://www.mavic.com/sites/default/file ... rt_eng.pdf

I used to have a comprehensive across many brands chart of the equivelants between each brand except it was done before Mavic started making shoes.
I shall do a search and post it if I can find it. Unfortunately the shop that created and published it is no longer in business.

Thanks guys. The chart (linked at CRC also) doesn't make sense fixie, sadly. It shows a foot length of 239.6 for a 38, and 243.8 for a 38 2/3 (which is some sort of Hogwarts size). And my foot is 230. :? Although I'm a 35-36 in civvies. It would be different if you could get good women's shoes here but we all know chicks don't ride bikes, and the return postage is too high to be viable. I still have some winter boots I don't need. Just thought someone might have cross-brand knowledge. :)
