Full Bore Race Shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 39.5
These are a true race shoe -- light, super stiff, and very close fitting. Toe box is on the medium to narrow side, no heal movement. Average ventilation. The BOA fasteners work like all the rest and are very adjustable in both directions. Cleat adjustment is good, can get sufficiently rearward. Materials, construction, and workmanship seem on par with other pro level shoes. Sizing seems to be slightly on the small size but they are supposed to be tight -- this is NOT a Gran Fondo shoe. Are they comparable to other pro level shoes? Yes, and far superior to any other PI shoe offered in the past. If on sale, a bargain, IF you want a true, no compromises, race shoe. At full price, a matter of fit vs. all the others. And yes, the red is actually pink.
