Driving and racing shoes are usually slightly narrower than athletic shoes. Most drivers like their shoes to fit as snugly as possible to increase pedal feel. If you are between sizes and like your shoes to fit snugly, choose the smaller size. If you are between sizes and have a wide foot or do not like your shoes to fit tight, opt for the larger size.
