my first thought was "wow a shoe that matches my bike!" as i have a pink Orbea Diva so i just had to purchase this shoe.
so far i've only been on 3 rides with it (30-50 miles+ each) and it was fairly comfortable. i have a hard time finding shoes because i have a bunion on my right foot, but this fits okay (perfect on my left foot). the SuperNatural Fit Kit is great since everyone has different needs when it comes to arch support.
in terms of performance, this shoe is very stiff and i saw an improvement in climbing as my old shoes were carbon fiber composites not full carbon fiber. some of the guys couldn't keep up with me on the hills. it must be the shoes :).
my only complaint is the tongue rides up pretty high on my foot and it gave me a blister so make sure you wear these shoes with higher socks than the no-show ones!
