Really like the fit and look of this shoe. Mostly ride on the road using eggbeater pedals but didn't want to use bulky looking mountain bike shoes. This is the best compromise. Plenty stiff and work great with the pedals. Bought a pair of 43.5 that were on super cheap clearance price(not returnable) and a 44 new just in case sizing was off. Both sizes fit well so I'm keeping both.
