How can I determine proper shoe sizing with an online purchase?

I'm interested in the Five Ten Freerider Mountain Bike Shoes-Men.

I previously purchased a pair of an other brand of shoe, and after wearing them on several rides I was dissatisfied with the comfort. Would it be possible to purchase on-line, sizes 10.5 and 11 for store pick up and decide at that point if they are the proper fit, and if not return one size, or if not both pair. The local store I had gone to didn't have either shoe to try on.

@hike101 thanks for reaching out! This is actually exactly what we would recommend when you're between sizes and want to try on both - you can order both sizes, select store pickup at your closest REI store, and head in when they have arrived. You can then try on both sizes and return whichever doesn't fit! Looking at the reviews, they seem to be running pretty true to size, so likely the 10.5 will fit (although may feel a bit snug at first), but you can certainly order both sizes to be sure; hope this helps!
