Yesssss finally a shoe that fits!!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
I tried on 15-20 pairs of shoes at different shops and online retailers. Every other shoe I tried was too narrow around the widest part of my foot, and/or the lacing system cut into my foot right by the tongue. This was a real problem with any BOA lacing systems and especially the side closure type of shoes. These shoes looked a little funny but I thought I'd give them a try because of the old school lacing system. They are fantastic - really comfortable but still stiff thanks to the carbon reinforced sole. I got these on clearance sale and the materials and construction were way, way better quality than any of the other shoes I tried in the $75-150 price range. If you're having the same fit issues that I had, then I can't recommend them highly enough. It fits slightly small (off by 1 size in EUR, or half a size in US).
