Thank you for the reply! I guess the extra volume toe box and extra snug mid/heel fit have a purpose? I need a pair of non-trail shoes for days when I can't get on a trail; recently I've been using a pair of light trail shoes (Terra Kiger 4) on off-trail runs, but I feel like they are a bit too 'firm', so I want to get an Altra road shoe. I want to try this shoe, but again it's always a risk because here in South Korea not one shop carries an Altra shoe larger than 10.5, so it's impossible to try them on before ordering from Massdrop. The Timp I ordered are fine at 12.5, so I guess this one would be too as you suggest.
