Comfortable and Effective
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 43
i havent purchased new Cycling Shoes in 15 years. I have several pairs of Nike Poggios and a pair of Lance 4's that have served me well. I have several friends that have been less than pleased with their Boa equipped shoes. I have always been happy with Velcro and the ratchet buckle as the Copal II's are. Ive put 100 miles on these shoes and they are very comfortable, no hot spots for me. The tongue is generously padded and they hold my foot tightly without excessive pressure. The footbox is roomier than most cycling shoes with a normal D width. The sole is stiff for a non Carbon construction. I generally wear a 44, which I originally ordered, but they were to big. I returned them for the 43 which fit perfectly. Most reviews suggested ordering the next size up, but that wasnt the case for me. I ordered my normal size and had to go down. My foot measured 26.8 cm. I plan to order the Black as well. So overall I am beyond pleased with these shoes, Im able to pedal much more efficiently in these shoes.
