For the past five years I have happily biked in Keen sandals. They've been great, particularly on warm summer days. In the last few women's biking sandals have dropped off the market. I wanted to get a new pair and was pleasantly surprised to find this model on the Western site. They fit my medium width foot comfortably. Bought a half size larger for the right fit lenghtwise. Cleats were easy to install and are recessed enough not to screech when you walk on floors. No break in period. Good support without the shoe feel. Recently wore the new sandals with light wool socks on a cool day.
I've owned a lot of road shoes over the years, but these Fizik R1B shoes are without a doubt my favorite. They're lightweight, breathable, comfortable, and absolutely gorgeous.
I bought the black version and I think they look and feel great. I was at the store and tried on the Sidi's as well as the Fizz's with the Boa system but these were by far the most comfortable and best looking. I love the laces as you can fine tune your adjustment, if you have a tight area, just loosen up the laces a little. Another great thing about these is they clean up really easy. The material they are made of almost has a rubber feel to it so I literally just hose them off when I am hosing off my bike. I highly recommend these!
