After 12 years of cycling through foot discomfort, going through brand after brand of shoe, I finally found a shoe that fits me perfectly. I tested the shoe out on an 80 mile ride and all I can say is wow! From the very first pedal stroke I knew these were the best shoes I have ever used. It seemed as if my entire foot was stabilized directly to put power to the pedal in such an efficient manner that I have never experienced before. No discomfort whatsoever throughout the long ride and just pure joy that I finally found the shoe!
My feet are just a bit wide for the typical cycling shoe but too narrow for wide fit shoes..my left foot always gets a hot spot just opposite of the arch and my right toes are always smashed together.. not so with this shoe! I wear a size 11 US in running shoe, 10 12 street shoe and size 45.5 fit me perfect in this shoe..Extremely comfortable and extremely powerful!
I look for a shoe that is stiff enough and light enough that I've not wasting power, but that's also comfortable enough that I don't notice them when doing a century. These fit the bill. They're well made and the Boa controls are easy to use while on the bike to snug the shoe after riding for a while.
