Italian soul.

Fi'zi:k might not be known for manufacturing shoes, yet, but it is renowned for excellent anatomic design, craftsmanship, and industry-leading technology. However, we have a feeling that the Italian, handmade M5 Uomo Shoes are a perfect example of Fi'zi:k's drive to be a leader in more places than just saddles.

The M5 uses an intelligent mix of its own Microtex synthetic leather, mesh, and anti-scratch genuine leather. Fi'zi:k places the leather around the toe box and heel cup in order to resist abrasion during hikes on the trail. Meanwhile, the ultra-lightweight mesh fills the voids between the leather sections for a heightened sense of cooling ventilation. And at the interior, the soft Microtex liner provides a lasting comfort over bone-rattling trails in balmy conditions.

Securely forming the M5 to your foot's natural shape are Fi'zi:k's hallmark sail-cloth straps with a ratcheting buckle at the top position. The two hook-and-loop straps control the overall volume of the shoe, while the ratcheting buckle adds security and makes for easy, on-the-fly adjustments. A the insole, we find Fi'zi:k's Superlight. This is the same insole found in the road version of this shoe, the R5 Uomo. And while its not custom moldable like with the M1's 3D-Flex insole, it does incorporate a thoughtful design that assures comfort by absorbing trail vibration and supporting your arch system.

Below the upper, aggressive lugs supply positive traction on dicey terrain, while the stiff, carbon-reinforced nylon outsole ensures that no pedal energy is lost to flex. This also prevents hot-spots forming from the pedal cleat.

The Fi'zi:k M5 Uomo Shoes are available in the color Black/silver/red and in whole and half sizes ranging from 40.0 to 48.0. Please note that these shoes are only compatible with standard two-hole cleat systems.

  • Fit: True to size

I love this shoes! .. they look so cool and so far they are performing very well. It has been cold over here and they have been warm. I am curious / worried about how they will hold on summer but the shoes look fantastic. I am 10.5 on US Sizes and order size 44

Pleasantly Surprised

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 44

These shoes fit me perfectly! I wear Sidi road shoes, in their 'mega' size. Fi'zi:k didnt offer a wide size, so I ordered a half size larger and the fit is great! The toe area is wide, even with thick winter socks, feels perfect! The quality is excellent and they seem to be pretty heavy duty. I've worn them on some very rocky single track, 40-50 mile gravel/dirt roads, and they are holding up just fine - good looking shoes also. And great pricing!

Fine for Recreational Riding

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After a few months of cycloross (lots of racing) and two mountain bike rides they are falling apart.

They also came off of my feet on a few run-ups so the heel isn't so snug.

Very comfortable shoe that looks great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

After shipping the wrong size back, I got my size 45's and they fit like a glove! I usually wear a 44-45 so they are true to size. They are a very good looking shoe that form around your foot without any pinch points. The fasteners hold firmly and the soles are very stiff for excellent power transfer. You can't go wrong with these shoes.

Very comfortable shoes.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I looked through all the reviews on the Internet to find clues on sizing before buying (I have not received mine). Let me tell what I found out. I do only use european sizing, so I have no clue to whether the conversion chart is correct. First, these shoes are very true to size compared to non-cycling shoes. I take 44.5 in other shoes and 44.5 in Fizik. Second, these shoes are very true to the old Fizik lines. I have the old R3 and R1 and they are exactly identical in size. Third, being true to size means that the are a bit smaller than other brands I have used. I would rate them ½ a size smaller (thus going in 44.5 in fizik would compare to 45) than the following other brands I use: Shimano, Bont, Sidi, Rexton. I would rate the as almost exact the same size as Diadora and about ½ a size bigger than Carnac.

Beside sizing, these are very nice shoes. I cannot vote for the long term durability yet, but they feel nice and of much higher quality and with much greater attention to detail than any other shoes I have tried below 150$. The only weakness is a rather large heel cup which may for some be too big (but I have small heels so I guess only few will really notice).

Do yourself a favour and buy Fizik Sidas 3D insoles as well.

Wanted to love these...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

great look. great craftsmanship. Heel cup is just too shallow. Tried the 45. too much room, had the straps tightened all the way and had play. the heels just slip out. Tried the 44.5 and they're just too tight. Heels still slip though. I think its a design flaw.

Runs small

  • Fit: Runs small

Beautiful and well made shoes, but as others have said, it does run small. I wear size 44.5 in specialized road shoes, so I ordered that size first, but they were very tight. Hopefully the 45s I just ordered will fit perfectly.

Nice shoe, but ran small.

  • Fit: Runs small

I went with the 46 based on another reviewers mention of extra roominess. I range between a 12-12.5 with a normal width but found my toes just a little too long. The toe box was snug, but since I didn't ride these before returning, I can't say if it was too snug. Had good arch support. I really felt like these things wrapped up my feet like a glove. Hope the 46.5s I just ordered do the trick. I would have liked to go straight to 47s but of course those were sold out in the color I wanted.

Comfy Squishy Feely Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Right out of the box these things feel great. They are very roomy so thin socks with small feet will end up with lots of play. I tried a thicker footbed but that was too much. They are well made! They look awesome and worked well right out of the box. The roominess does cause some issues on the trail. There is a tremendous amount of heel lift so much so that my foot has come out of the shoe on occasion. The other problem is that it feels like my foot is rolling to the outside. I think that they may have compromised comfort for stability. It hasn't happened yet but your toes are vulnerable to striking rocks if you step off abruptly.

fizik M5 shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

Having tried the R5 shoes from the same manufacturer, I was pretty sure the M5 would fit me - and they did. The local bike shop just didn't stock the M5 shoes in my size (even sizes only) and, when I went online, I found these at a reduced price - which was nice.

I didn't do any "breaking in" but found I didn't really need to. I just installed my Time ATAC cleats and took the shoes with me to ride the (273 km) Confederation Trail in P.E.I. and rode 60 - 80 Km / day. They felt good from the start and were easy to adjust on the go. No issues with my feet (even though one big toe has been swelling - due to an old injury), the toe area seemed to adjust and the heel area felt just right (snug but not too much so). The shape of the shoe / sole did not make make the outer areas of my feet feel sore (like my Sidis do), even though my lower legs are somewhat bowed (I know, they make orthotics for that).

Size comparison? I wear size 43 in Ecco shoes (and can get snug or loose fit depending on how I draw the laces); in these, I needed size 43.5, which is the same as my (9 yrs old) Sidi road shoes. They also seemed snugger at the heel, than some other MTB shoes I tried and much better than my (15 yr old, worn-out) Diamont MTB shoes. Note that the two lower velcro fastening straps can be re-positioned to allow for a narrower or wider set-up, with the same range of adjustability.

The Fizik folks got these right. I would recommend these even at full retail price. Made in Italy / high quality , exellent fit and feel - and they look good too.

Highly recommended!

I sent these back.

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have worn size 45 shoes for 20 years and ordered these in 45, despite the website chart showing I should be in a 44 or44.5. They did not even come CLOSE to fitting. I sent them back and chose not to re-order because they seemed very thin-these might do as a dry weather super lightweight xc racing shoe, but I would not consider them for every day week-in, week-out all weather riding.

Did they run big or small? Come on man, don't leave us hangin'!

Not for a narrow foot

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought these to replace some Sidi shoes that are getting pretty worn out. I have a narrow foot and these Fizik just won't work for me. I had the velcro straps pulled as far as they could go and the ratchet buckle was at the end of it's adjustment. They were tight enough at that point but were creating hot spots on my feet. I had to return them. It's shame because they seemed like nice shoes otherwise. The fit just didn't work for my feet. They should work for someone with average to wider feet, though.

Would not buy again

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased these shoes in June 2014 and have put about 125 miles on them so far. I wear regular size 10.5 and ordered size 44s per the size chart. Two issues have come up with the shoe so far. First, very surprisingly to me, the fit is not tight and my heel lifts out of the shoe. My toes are at the end of the shoe as they should be, and I have all velco straps as tight as possible and the ratchet buckle is also as tight as it can go. Even with this the shoe is not tight on my foot, which is surprising to me; I actually expected to have the opposite problem meaning to have a low volume shoe that wouldn't give me enough room. The second issue is a design flaw in my opinion. The outside edge of the shoe (meaning the side along your little toe) is not protected well from roots or rock hits (you can see this mesh area in the photo above just in front of the "Fi'zi:k" name). I already have a hole developing on the left shoe through the mesh. I bought these shoes to replace a pair of Specializeds that were less expensive and did a better job of holding up to the trail. I really want to like these shoes but I will be replacing them very soon due to the fit on my feet and the lack of durability.

High Class Kicks

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Are you a fashion conscious, all mountain shredder on a budget? Well good because these are pretty much perfect.

With a unique style these carry plenty of "bling" factor, and are sure to turn heads on the trail. These are no slouch in the performance department, with a mid-stiff sole that is as equal parts comfort and performance. And the price, $179 retail are you serious? High end shoe but someone up the chain forgot to include a high end price tag.

6+ months and still loving these shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these to replace some sidi dragons. These are a great fit if you have slightly wider feet. I always find bike shoes to be narrow. Sole stiffness is pretty high but will soften with time and I don't feel the cleats at all. I run my own touring company rockymountainbiking.net and have to be in these shoes a lot while on tours and can say they are super comfy. I added some super feet soles which is well worth the money since most factory soles suck.

Do you find the size runs the same as the SIDI?

Single problem makes for a big issue

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Sidi advertises the surface the insole goes on being smooth as a big feature. I never really realized that was a feature until I got these shoes. For the cleat Fizik cuts a hole all the way through and then doesn't fill it properly. This leaves the insole unsupported right below the ball of your foot--the most critical area for support. I didn't realize this until I started developing foot pains after many rides--something I never had a problem with my sidi or specialized shoes. I upgraded to the M1 which has a different design which avoids this problem and it has been great. Honestly the design and construction of this shoe is irresponsible.

Apart from that though the shoes are pretty nice, they keep little trail debris out and fit me quite well. The rubber on the sole provides better than average traction over rocks and logs. The design of the buckle isn't perfect either. To release the tension requires quite a bit of force and is a little bit too difficult to do on the bike. Compared to my old shoes it's significantly more difficult. It's not a deal breaker at all though you just have to be a bit more careful and aware of how you like them when putting them on. I didn't have any problems with my feet getting too hot even when riding in the 102F heat of Southern California.

If only the sole was a better the shoe would be at least 4 stars. A little gripper rubber on the bottom and a slightly redesigned buckle and its 5.

Ferrari chic, Kia price.

It's unnerving that Fi'zi:k can get away with selling these kicks under $250. Why? Because it makes selling anything more expensive really, really hard. Impeccable construction, double-stitching, and higher-quality materials than many far more expensive dirt boots.

From a comfort perspective, they feel like a pair of Sidis, but are stiffer than their entry-level offerings. Italian slippers that your feet feel immediately at home in. They do get a bit warm - the leather used on the toe, while very resistant to impact, does not breathe. Then again, if sweaty feet bug you, there's bigger things to worry about. Sole stiffness, as mentioned, is quite adequate for most pedaling applications. I wouldn't place them in the same realm as the uber-rigid race shoes available for more scratch, but there's enough flex that off-bike they're quite tolerable.

Fit is slightly wider than the likes of a Sidi Dominator at the forefoot and comparable in length, while the heelcup is narrow. There's quite a bit of volume to work with, and my low-volume forefoot had trouble getting enough retention from the straps - something to keep in mind.

Overall? Styling, comfort, and construction quality win me over on these. At the $200 pricepoint, unless you're seeking something to high-post your way up a fireroad at mach bitch (read: not having fun), I'd put these on the BUY list. If they fit, that is.
