Review: I have a high-arch and a wide foot. My "correct" shoe size is 9.5EEE (That's triple-wide). If there are no wide sizes available, I normally have to buy a size 10-11. Having said that, these JT Pro Cleats fit perfectly at a size 9.5. Just don't lace them too tightly down low and you should be fine.

I bought the model with yellow cleats, which I think is the mid-top.

When I first put them on, they were tight at the widest part of my foot, and they rubbed the back of my foot a great deal. I went on a short walk (less than 1/4 of a mile) but had to stop before I got blisters. The next day I put some moleskin on the back of my foot, and took care not to over-tighten the laces. I wore the shoes to work, and kept them on for about 8 hours before I had to change into a different pair of shoes.

That was all the breaking-in I had time to do before the next game. I was a little worried when I strapped them on. To my surprise, when I started walking I couldn't feel any friction. Apparently I'd worn them enough to soften up the cleats.

I didn't have any problems on soft terrain the entire day. The cleats were light, and gave good traction. The cleats dug in and my legs were the limiting factor in my acceleration.

The only time the cleats failed me was on a hard wooden ramp slick with paint. The ramp was at about a 35 degree angle and was about 7 feet long. I made it about 5 feet up the ramp, then slowly slid back down. I stayed on my feet, but couldn't get enough traction to make it up.

Conclusion: Comfortable once broken in. Gives great traction on soft surfaces. Avoid hard surfaces.
