I have been quite pleased with these shoes since buying a couple months ago. I almost always try to go into a brick and mortar to try on gear before ordering online, especially with shoes, but I took a leap of faith on this one and I couldn't be happier. I'll be honest, I was concerned w/ some of the comments regarding "narrow foot", but I stayed true to my gut and found the perfect size, for my above-average large foot. Walking in the shoes is a breeze with the recessed clip, and it feels like you're walking in a pair of stiff running shoes. No more sliding across the asphalt on your clips! You can kiss those days bye bye! And aside from the fit, the snugness of the shoe feels perfect and the Boa L6 dial truly blows my mind each time I use it (seriously, it's awesome). The single Velcro buckle across your upper toe gives that extra degree of freedom when finding the perfect fit. And let's not forget the sleek, sexy, simple black design. I feel like a friggen night rider in these shoes, even though I only ever use them in the day time!
There's nothing I don't like about this shoe. I use it for all my cycling ... from MTB trails, gravel adventures and road riding. Fit is just a bit on the large side but not bothersome and it gives me room for heavy socks in the winter. The Boa closure works super and won't degrade like velcro straps. The closure also has micro adjustability to get the fit just right. The soles are very comfortable in the hike a bike and walking modes with plenty of sure footed grip. These shoes seem to breathe well and I have no hot spots in the summer heat. I'l know more about the durability by next summer but I'm feeling confident they will hold up to everything I can throw at them. Very pleased with this purchase and would recomend this shoe.
As more of a roadie, I like a stiff shoe that transfers power efficiently and doesnï¿½t feel clunky and overbuilt like many mtb shoes. These are plenty stiff, not great for walking, but split the difference well between road and mtb shoes.
Fit was good out of the box, although a bit roomy over the arch. Tow box is ample, arch support good but upgraded to a higher end insole. Boaï¿½s closures are nice, Velcro strap over forefoot seems dated, never gets adjusted. Slick design overall.
It is a very good fit for my feet. I love having BOA adjustment though having 2 would be even better. I got a good price here at $135. Two complaints - the insole is extremely thin so count on retrofitting something. If you unclip by accident, the foot can slip on the pedal when trying to click back in due to the slick bottom surface of the shoe. I had read about this going in. It's not a deal breaker as you can get used to it and become more skilled at avoiding it. I do love the look of these Fizik and even wish I had gone for the edgier look of Green/Orange. My green ones are still nice.
