Just like most track shoes, the Wire v6 uses the standard width and follows men’s sizing scale. It is recommended for women to deduct 1.5 from their usual size preference. 

Adjustable and convenient fit 

There are two technical elements that are directly influencing the fit of the Brooks Wire v6. First, the woven upper wraps around the contours and shape of the foot, giving it lockdown.
