The Overcurve R4's classic aesthetic belies an advanced construction technique: a resilient polyurethane laminated material is combined over a comfortable mesh, reducing energy loss and providing long-lasting foot support where it's most needed.
Designed with a performance fit for riders with wider feet, the Overcurve R4 Wide provides a higher volume fit with more room at the forefoot around the ball of the foot and metatarsals.
Shoe closure is fast, reliable, and secure, powered by a micro-adjustable BOA® IP1 dial in an Overcurve pattern.
The Overcurve shoe construction features a staggered collar that wraps around the ankle, tracing the natural alignment of the ankle's two bony protrusions: the lateral and medial malleoli. The result is an asymmetrical shape, with the throat of the shoe curving over the foot from its outside to its inner side.
The moderately stiff R4 outsole strikes a balance between comfort and pedaling efficiency to make it a true all-rounder, featuring a lower profile structurally optimized with a 15% infused carbon fiber composition.
The R4 outsole further provides efficient ventilation with internal channeling for effective temperature regulation. The cleat is positioned slightly further towards the heel compared to traditional placement to optimize pedaling efficiency and reduce knee compression, especially suited to aggressively forward aero riding positions.

I decided to take a chance on the Fizik overcurve R4wide and my feet after the first ride have never felt better. I wear a size 12EE and the wide Fizik overcurve is just what I needed. With a great price point it was a worth trying out and now Iï¿½m sold.
The is my first pair of Fizik shoes. They look and feel good. I don't have particularly wide feet (D) and the wide shoe fits me perfectly. I usually wear a 12 to 12 1/2 and the size 46 fits well. The BOA closure works great and gets them snug and comfortable.
I've put in a few hundred miles so far with a few 50+ mile rides and my feet have been comfortable. On hot rides, I've noticed that these shoes are less ventilated than my older LG shoes and my feet get warmer than I would like. Overall, I'm very pleased with these shoes and will strongly consider Fizik for my next pair.
