Hi all, just registered as a forum member today. This is a long post, but please bear with me.
Need some help. I live in India (can't find Icons here!) and will be asking a relative to bring me a pair of Icons from the USA. However, am worried that the size won't be correct, which would be a shame and a waste.
Here's the dilemma - I wear Superlites, bought in India. They are made in China, Size 8.5W. I assume that these are UK sizing, which would indicate a 9.5 in US sizing. I checked some websites which convert measurements to US shoe sizing, and with socks on, my feet are 10.5 inches and 4.1 inches wide. All sites show that this equates to a US 9.5, which corroborates my guess that the superlites are a UK size. The worry, however, is the width. Some sites show that 4.1" is a Wide fit. Others show this as an Extra Wide fit.
Does anyone know how my foot measurements would translate to Footjoy Icon sizes? I have written to Footjoy, however they haven't responded. May I humbly request anyone wearing Icons in US 9.5 to measure their feet with golf socks on, and let me know what width Icons fit them well? May I also request Chris to let me know if he has any idea how my foot measurements would translate to Footjoy Icon sizing? I really wish Footjoy had a measurement conversion chart based on their different lasts - it would be so easy for those purchasing online!
It would have been simple if the fit of the superlites was the same as the icons, but given they have different lasts, I suspect that this isn't the case.
