Within about 7 months of use the plasticrubber sole brokesplit. Additionally the latch needs to be tightened every other ride. IMO buy a higher quality shoe...which is what I will do when I have the money. I am not happy with the buy and wish there was a warranty on the shoe.
I find that the way cycling shoes fit is highly individualistic. Having said that, I've always fit Shimano shoes quite well, but not so good with Sidis (which is a shame, because they are very good shoes). I tried the Giro shoes on a lark, and have been completely satisfied with the fit and the quality of the shoe. I find they are best suited for the cooler weather we have in Northern California, since they don't have as much mesh or other materials that pass air into the shoes. This is actually a good thing, and I wear these shoes when the temps are between freezing and 60-ish degrees and find they are very well suited to keep the cold air off those pesky toes that want to be cold all the time. The shoes seem to be well constructed, and I'm hoping they last with normal wear and tear.
