Great bike shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Though they look like a regular skate shoe, these really are a great bike shoe, my go to when I hop on the fixie.
They fit true to size, normally wear a 9.5 and these are no different. They were a bit stiff around the opening when i first got them causing a little discomfort but after a few short rides they broke in great and are now very comfortable.
They have a noticeably stiffer sole to better transfer power and keep your feet from wearing out as quickly when pedaling. The sole also has a great pattern with deep waffle type indents that grab the pedal great when trying to flip it over to get into your cages and keep it secure once you are on it.
Great low profile style fits in cages great. Reinforced toe cap (easier to see on the white color in the photos) adds durability, laces also have metal end coverings which is a nice touch. The logo strip that runs across the top of the tongue is attached only at the ends which is really nice to be able to tuck any extra length in there to keep it safe.
I got the black ones, and the blue dots are not at noticeable in person as they are in the photos. They are also sewn into the fabric/slightly raised from the shoe, not just printed on, so they wont rub off leaving you with half a shoe of dots or anything.
Great shoe! Grab a pair while you still can.
