I couldn't get my foot into a 9.5 pair of UFOs I tried on this year. My suggestion is to try them on before you buy them. I haven't tried this years Maysis so I can't compare.
I'm not sure how much they will pack out after the heat moulding, I've heard mixed stories on this from various people. My toes are comfortably up against the front but they are not crammed into the front of the boot, I'm not taking the chance on them not packing out a ton.
Thanks! That actually helps a lot, it tells me that the fit is roughly the same between models (your trying the UFO vs Thraxis) which means I can hopefully expect similar. I know I'll be packing them out one way or another, so I feel comfortable there. I tried on the UFO in a 12 and it fit similar to the Maysis in a 12. Thanks!
