HO EXO 2012 new sizing

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the new sizing in the EXO line.
They have dropped the 13/14 size and only are doing the 12/13's. Dumb question maybe but wondering if they changed the 13/14 label and the 12/13's are actually the same boot.
Nobody I've talked to knows the answer.
Thanks

    Can't answer your question, but will say that I am an 8.5 to 9 and the size 8 fits nice. Size 9 felt big on my foot.

    Cheers

    I know about this first hand- HO was extremely helpful regarding this.
    The new 12/13 have about the same length as the old 13/14 and you
    can also take the rubber footbed out to add more room. I got mine and
    was surprised to find that I actually had more length than the Strada 13/14s
    that I used last summer.
    And, fwiw, the lateral support is amazing

    Does that mean that if you are Size 12 on the old model you have to move down to 11 in the 2012 model?
    That's how I understand it.

    How about previous issues with Exo´s regarding unexpected release, bending exo frames,pinching eyelets entering the boots etc. ?
    Anyone with first hand experience or friends that might have ?

    Also, does the adapter plate look like a viable option if Youre not on a HO?

    The bar is stiffer. Tips breakage fixed, tips are now metal. Never had a pre-release in 3 seasons. Never had an eyelet issue. Onle issue I had with the boot was peeling of the rubberized fabric in the zipper area. HO fixed that for 2012.
