My Spring/Fall Shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 43
Believe it or not, I bought these because they aren't as well ventilated as a couple of other shoes I own, and I wanted something for cooler temps. These fit a bit large (with an insole, I usually take 43.5 and these are 43) but these fit fine with an insole. The shoes they replaced (also SIDIs I'd had since 2013!) had velcro and the buckle ratchet, but I like the boa better, as the velcro on the old shoes eventually stopped holding well. I've read several reviews stating the upper material seems "cheap". I disagree... it is the same material found on SIDIs more expensive shoes (like the Wire). The soles are plenty stiff... as stiff as my Wires and my S-Phyres, both of which are top of the line. Overall, these are very nice shoes at a great price. I'd been eyeing them for some time and I'm very glad I finally pulled the ticket.
