Great shoulder season shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 46
These were purchased to replace my old Shimano winter shoes that were ready for the trash can. The fit is great and I like the yellow trim for a bit of extra viz when riding in the early mornings. I live in the PACNW (Seattle area) so I don't ride in realllllly cold weather - if it does get below freezing, I tend to find another means of transportation. For my needs, they are sufficient and can keep my feet warm until maybe 1.5-2 hours into a ride that might be in the mid 30's (Fahrenheit). If it's wet but not raining much, my feet stay mostly dry. If it's pouring rain, the neoprene cuff soaks through and my sock will get soaked after 1-1.5 hr. For what this shoe was designed for, it works well and is really comfy. The sole is also sufficiently stiff. I sized up one full size from my Lake road shoes and I can comfortably wear my Woolie Bollie (sp?) socks. If you want a shoe you can wear in a downpour for more than a short ride, I'd look at one of their boots that is designed for this.
