Excellent fit, quality all-around shoe

Fit perfectly using the sizing guide. Excellent traction on various terrain. It will probably become my one shoe style for roadcrossgravel. Only four stars because I cant speak to durability.

Good all-rounder

I've had these shoes about a week now. Wanted to go with laces because I've had buckle shoes fail a couple of times and replacement buckles are expensive. This shoe is stiff, with a carbon plate under the cleat area. It doesn't lace down quite as snug as a buckle or boa system does, but I'm not using them to race. You can add a couple of studs up front if you like the traction (not included). They did come with an extra pair of laces. The elastic lace holder seems to do its job well and I've not had the laces fall out or come loose. I wear a size 12 and the Japanese size 47 that converts to an 11.8 in US sizing fits fine with a little bit of extra room for a cold-weather sock. The Michelin outsole appears to be sturdy and fairly grippy, yet comfortable for walking around too. I will use this shoe for road miles, trail miles, and commuting as well. I got the black for the retro lace-up look, but the grey looks good too. The tongue could have been another 14 to 12 longer if I really look for something I'd like to change about them.
