hey there folks i need sizing help with soops.
my soops (1s+2s+vins) are all 7.5us but some of my other adidas are 7us. i'd like to purchase a pair of 80s that are us7.
are the 80s narrower or something compared to the rest of the soops family? is it a good idea at all?

I'd stick with your regular superstar size (7.5)

80s are about a quarter size bigger I reckon. 10s are a little bit too big for me (where it's just a bit uncomfortable), 9s are too small (to where it's just uncomfortable). Personally, I'd drop a half size but that's just me

I dropped half a size on the REPS due to availability and they aren't terrible, but I'd prefer my regular size.

I may have asked this before but is there any major sizing difference between ss1's & 2's?

I disagree with what everyone has said.

I'm usually an 11.5US (can go 12 in SS2) in Superstars & Stan Smiths. I prefer an 11US in Campus/Greenstars (...and Puma Clydes as well)

I have 3 pairs of 80s, 2 are 11.5US and one is 11US. I prefer the 11US, although the 11.5US still works.

So, in 80s... I'd prefer to go down a half size.

Me too frankly.
My plain white with blue stripe 80s are a 9.5 and even they're huge.
I normally take a 10.

what i´d recommend is: a pair that is a size or half size too big is always better that a pair that is too small. people say you can take the insole out when a pair is half a size too small and it helps. from my experience it does not help, because a shoe that is too short wont get longer. the space inside just get higher when you take a insole out but not longer.
if you have a shoe too big, just drop an insole in and you are fine.
So better too big than too small imo

I concur with King and Pure, got my 80's stripes on for the first time today, they're an 11.5, my ideal size, but they feel a tad spacious. REPS are 11 and a much better fit.

It was fuckin' obvious that that cunt was gonnae fuck some cunt.

You can buy shoe stretchers and make em longer. Supes look better in smaller sizes so I dont like buying ones that are big for me. I got some stretchers so if theyre abit small it aint too much of a problem. Smile

'shoe stretchers'? the problem I find with going down half a size is where the top of the shell fits against my foot. The smaller size usually rubs against the top of my toes.
