There is a significant difference in overall size of the shoe but not as great in the sizing of the shoe, if that makes sense. The trainer is bulkier in every way. There is less knit material, the holes are much larger and more pronounced in the racer. After running in my volts and casually wearing my white/black tonight I think that there will be a little bit of 'forming' that happens with this shoe. The toe (length, not width) of my racers is a little tight with a tts 11 for me. I went tts on the trainers as well and they fit like a glove. That being said, there is a noticeable difference in the fit before and after a 3.5 mile run. I think that the racer will loosen up a touch after a run as well and be perfect. I like the fit tighter though.
