HOW DOES THE XPS SHOE FIT COMPARE TO THE SHIELD TIP ICON.
The XPS takes a round or two longer to break-in than the Icon. Love both shoes
I second that. The first couple of times I wore my XPS they felt pretty stiff. Now I won't wear anything else. They're great shoes.
I prefer the XPS-1 to any other shoe. Have never had an issue with wearing them straight out of the box.
But all of the FJ line is great, you really can't go wrong.
As far as the fit goes, I would say they are pretty similar.

XPS-1 will fit a little wider over the top of your foot due to the U-Throat opening. The toe box is also a little wider than the shield tip Icon.
I wouldn't say these differences would cause a size change though!
There is defenitely no size change in any of the FJ shoes I have worn in the past or presently wear. I also prefer the XPS over just about all others, but really like the stabily of the XPS due to the wide platform. The toe box does feel a bit wider than my icon's and feels more comfortable to me. I have taken out several pairs and never felt that I needed to break them in. They were good to go right out of the box.
Thanks all for your thoughts. Would be a great myjoy shoe to put together
