I'm a guy. From what I've read, I have a low-volume foot. I e-mailed mad rock and one of their guys recommended the hottie to me in a women's size 12 (10.5 male). I wear a 10.5 street shoe. The width was great. My foot felt very secure in the shoe. I will agree with another post that the toe box is very narrow. I think 10.5 might be just a bit misleading, though, as it felt more like a 10. My toes were bent pretty sharply. I think my toes would have fit better if the shoe didn't push your foot into the toe box so much, but that's what it's designed to do.
I think a guy with a narrow size 10 foot would do fine with these shoes.
