Do you or anyone else know how is the width on these vibram 5-fingers? Do you think they are wide or narrow compared with others?
From the Vibram 5-fingers sizing chart I fit the 42. But, there is no mention anywhere. (When the foot gets up around the 10-3/8" to 10-1/2" the chart references all to the men's sizing. That happens right around 41/42)
I'm currently at school, but I'll check the treksports I got originally when I get home. The rule of thumb is to size up if you think you're in between sizes, especially if you plan on wearing toe socks with them. I ended up deciding on the 42 due to this.

No return policy for size issues?
I'm a size 10 in womens, but closer to an 8/ 8 1/2 in mens. Generally, I skew toward 8 1/2 when buying shoes in mens because womens shoes seem too tight (narrow?) but 10 1/2 is too large, while the 8 is almost right and 8 1/2 has breathing room. As I said above, I'd skew toward larger just to wear socks with them and not be skintight.
I originally measured completely wrong, hence the 39. I remeasured later and realized I'm basically in between the 41 and 42.
As for return policy, I did not ask -- mainly because I'm from the old days of Woot where there really wasn't one. The preferred option was to just resell what you had if you got the wrong size by your choice (exception is if you were sent the wrong size and you chose correctly, thus a woot error).
