These EUR45s should correspond to a UK11 but I’m a UK10 and found them a good fit. I certainly wouldn’t want to go any smaller. When I’m out on the gravel bikes I’ve got a size UK10 pair of Northwave mountain bike shoes and they are snug, a little too short for long rides, so yeah, definitely go a size up.

If they are also too wide for your foot, then I would say they are too big. They should be snug with no movement between your foot and the shoe.

How do you measure for cycling shoes?
Most cycling shoes are designed to fit snug, so you want to go down a 1/2 to a full size. So, for example, I generally wear a 10.5 or 11 in everyday shoes, but I wear a 43.5 in road cycling shoes.
