I have been a SIDI guy all my life. I needed some shoes for my new gravel bike and thought I would give these a try. I love them. Super comfortable, the adjuster is great and even. Now thinking of getting a FIZIK road shoe.
This is a comfortable and stiff shoe. The boa is very easy to use. A couple things
- near the ankle is pretty high, so I had a cobbler make me a little wedge out of hard cork, which I glued below the insole.
- like many shoes, the front of the shoe is not very high, and I have a big large toe, it touches above. I don't care about wide shoes, I need shoes with a high toe box. Some shimano shoes have more height in the front, like the M200, or the Giro VR90
- Two boa loops would be better, to adjust separately front and mid-section. A number of other high-end shoes have it.
But overall a good shoe, and when it is deeply discounted I do recommend.
