European shoe sizes and styles?

After growing addicted to Dansko and Alegria shoes, during my nursing clinical rotations a couple of years ago,I have learned that we US women supposedly wear our shoes too tight, which ruins our feet. I actually opted up to a European 39 in some styles, and although they look a bit large to ,y eye, they are extremely comfy.

Just took delivery on a pair of Vivobarefoot sneakers last week, off amazon, out of a seller in the UK. They warned that they shoe ran small, so I put in 39 on the size box, to be sure,given the distance for making a return. Wearing them today, they feel about a half-size too long. The toe box is good and wide, compared to a similar style in New Balance brand. I just need to adjust to this looseness, and tell myself they aren't really clown shoes.

Do you have trouble deciding which size to buy in Euro-styled shoes?
