As a refresher, I'm normally a size 10. At APL, I'm typically a 10.5, but since the TechLoom slides aren't sold in half sizes, I'm an 11. Using the brand's metrics for translating from women's to men's shoes, I would need a size 9.5 in the men's TechLoom slides. But, remember, APL doesn't do half sizes in slides (🙄). So it then became a question of go down a size or go up a size. Ultimately, I chose to go down, assuming that since I'm normally a size 8 in men's (10 minus the standard 2), a 9 would be better than a 10. Unfortunately, the men's 9 is closer to the women's 10, and the strap seems a bit wider, too.
Had I tried these on in-store, I definitely would have asked for a size up, but since I ordered them online and I'm impatient—and because they still fit, they're just a tiny bit smaller than my women's 11 TechLoom slides — I kept them and wear them around just as much.
My only other... acknowledgment (because it's not so much a complaint as it is a discovery) is that since the footbeds are made with mesh fabric, unless you get black or navy blue, it's easy to leave a footprint in them (even if you, like me, consider yourself to have very clean feet). The good news, though? They're machine-washable. According to the site, you can pop them in the wash on the cool setting and let them air dry. (Though, I'd recommend putting them in a lingerie bag for extra protection—not that I've tried that yet, but that's my plan if and when I do.)
