It's a fine shoe. Stiff in the sole, and the closures secure your feet nicely into the shoe. For me, quite comfortable. The only complaint, and this is more cosmetic than anything else, is that the techno dial adjusters are all black and a bit hard to open in order to tighten. On the old ERGOs they were red with a bigger opening tab so you easily glance down and adjust on the fly. These take a bit of fumbling around to adjust while you are riding. The ERGOs are good shoes, and I like them a lot, but if you can swing it, the WireWire Vents are better and even more comfortable (they feel like they were built around your foot and incredibly adjustable).
