This is a terrific road shoe for those who like extra room in the forefoot for their toes and not feel constrained as in Sidi or Fizik shoes. The leather is quite supple and the last is stiff, but not uncomfortably so. The BOA system is durable and reliable, the only minor quibble is that there is no microadjustment to loosen the shoe, once disengaged, the BOA completely releases. The heel pad is now replaceable which is a good feature. These have been my favorite road shoes since the days of the old Shimano moldable in the oven shoe.
I've used the shoes for several weeks. Nice quality and fit, but the tongue needs to be longer and padded since the top of the inside of the shoe irritates my ankle. I have to use bandages to buffer the annoying pain. Maybe after break-in this problem goes away.
