They got it right!

In recent years I tried the 310's and 315's, but they just never fit right. I've had serious foot issues the last few years, so bad I had to use custom orthotics that were too thick for most shoes, and, while much better, it still wasn't perfect (and only certain cycling shoes would work with them).
After reading a bit about these and hearing good things online, I decided to give them a shot. No more orthotics. I've been using them since early January exclusively. I don't use my other shoes anymore and I haven't used the orthotics with these shoes at all. They got it right- the arch support, the design of the shoe, even the sole and the adjustable fore/aft.
Wow, just WOW! I love them- I don't even think about my feet anymore when I ride. They're comfortable. I haven't even had them custom molded.

Responded on

Hey, were your orthotics full length or 3/4 length? I myself am having trouble with my orthotics / shoe combination and the Shimano's were recommended to me. I was surprised to find that you were now able to go without your ortho's, hence my question. Thanks in advance for your response.
