good shoe, just not for me
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I have only used Giro shoes until I tried and returned these, I tried to stick to what I know and this is what happened.
The fit on my foot was good as usual, wasn't any different from my past Giro shoes.
First thing I noticed is that it didn't seem like I could get the cleat far enough forward on the sole, the soles are in fact incredibly stiff as advertised though. When I was riding the cleat placement didn't feel right, but I had no forward room to adjust.
I didn't like how the top Boa connected. If you tighten the shoe a lot, the strap butts against the other side of the shoe with the boa, and you can't go any tighter. It can't overlap.
Throughout my ride I tighten my shoes and by the end of my first ride I had the tech laces stretched so far over the side of the shoe that there was almost no velcro left to grab. I had read about this in other reviews too.
CC handled my exchanges very well as usual and I ended up with Sidi Wire 2's that I love.
Not saying this is a bad shoe, just didn't work for what I need. If you need a guaranteed tight closure system though, this is not it.
I received the order quickly and it was exactly as described except it didn’t fit the shoe is for apparently very narrow feet and it’s plastic and you can’t stretch it I couldn’t put any pressure on my foot it was very painful across the front part of my foot I contacted the company competitive cyclist and they were very agreeable to provide a return receipt documentation and shipping label very professional company sorry the shoes didn’t fit I love the color I had to order a different brand that was a wider width
