I've been to maybe 8 bike shops trying to find shoes in size 48/49, but everything I've found been too wide. I've tried on Shimano, Scott & Louis Garneau (the only brands that I've been able to find stocked in 48/49 - fair enough I guess).
Apparently Sidi shoes should fit my narrow feet nicely - but I'd like to try them on prior to ordering to confirm the correct size and fit. Shops can order them but they want a deposit (which is fair enough) - but I'd rather try them on first to make sure I like the fit and feel. I'm happy to pay a few extra $ at a shop (as opposed to online) that can help me out.
Does anyone know which shops might stock Sidi in 48/49, or do you have a set of 48/49 Sidis that I could try on, or recommend any other narrow brands that I could find a 48/49 in? FYI I'm looking at the Giau model (MTB shoes).
Any help would be very much appreciated!

After visiting Walkers Wheels, Port Melb Cycles (and others), I've worked out I'm probably a 49 in a Sidi, but even the (slightly short) 48 road Sidis I tried were a tad wide. Thanks again, the advice was very useful.
I'm currently tossing up whether to:
1) Order 49 Sidi Dominator 5s/Giaus/whatever they can get through Yarra Valley Cycles (they have been excellent in trying everything to help me out). Still a tad wide, but maybe I can use bigger inner-soles & wedges to fill them out a bit.
2) Order "narrow" 49 Dominator 5s from a number of international web-stores that offer them (they should fit perfectly - but it's bit risky ordering online without being to try them. Plus I'd rather buy through a LBS).
3) Investigate customer made shoes (I'm investigating, but it looks like ~$500 for a pair!)
Curse my long, skinny feet!
