The new age of comfort.

Fi'zi:k's road shoes have become well known for their incredible comfort, so it only makes sense to bring that same experience to the mountain bike set. The Fi'zi:k M5 Donna Shoes are a strong example of this trickle down. Basically, you get the full befit of Fi'zi:k's considerable know-how, wrapped up in a supportive and stunningly attractive package.

Fi'zi:k built the uppers of the M5 Donna shoes out of a blend of Microtex microfiber, nylon mesh, and leather. The Microtex microfiber and nylon mesh handle ventilation duties, keeping your feet cool when you're working hard. Meanwhile, the anti-scratch leather is applied in high-wear areas like the toe box and heel cup. And although it's a hard-wearing material, the leather remains supple and soft. Additionally, you'll find that it breaks in beautifully, adding comfort to the requisite durability.

And since nobody wants their energy to go to waste, Fi'zi:k employed three retention straps. All three are built out of durable sailcloth, and each are cut wide in order to relieve pressure on your feet. The two foremost straps use a hook-and-loop closure for fine-tuned volume adjustments. And the strap nearest to your ankle attaches via a proprietary ratcheting buckle that's been constructed from aluminum for durability.

However, correct fit alone won't guarantee pedaling efficiency. Accordingly, Fi'zi:k gave the M5 Donna shoes a carbon-reinforced, nylon outsole. And while it's not quite as stiff as the carbon fiber outsole of the M1 series, this outsole combines plenty of stiffness with just enough flex to minimize trail chatter. This design fights foot discomfort, which is a common result of riding extremely stiff shoes off-road. And since you'll end up walking your bike sooner or later, Fi'zi:k added rubber lugs to the bottom of the sole in order to increase your traction on the dirt and rocks.

Fi'zi:k included its Superlight insole in the M5 Donna. And while it's not heat moldable like the 3D Flex insole in its M1 shoes, the Superlight insole benefits from an anatomic design that allows it to fully-support your foot. The Superlight insole also has the added benefit of impact absorbing materials to further reduce trail chatter and to keep your feet feeling fresh after a long day on the trail.

The Fi'zi:k M5 Donna Shoes are available in the color Black and in whole and half sizes from 37.0 to 43.0.

Super cute, but not meant for the heat.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought these shoes for my road bike - I use SPD pedals.

The shoes are stylish. I notice the heel of the shoe is pretty deep back - I wonder what type of fit model they used - if the form or the woman had wider heels perhaps. I also noticed that they seem to be a winter/fall shoe, which is great for cooler days, but in Northern California in the summertime, I need some breathability. My feet hurt the first use on the sides and the shoe is not too tight at all. I normally wear a 39 and I got a 40.5 in these and by the end of a metric, maybe because my feet are so hot (swollen?) the shoes seem short and my big toe starts to hurt.

There is part of me that wants to order a 41 because I like the looks of them, and pray they are comfortable, but I worry that the heel will be an issue.

Super cute, but not meant for the heat.

Comfortable, decent overall

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The shoe is fairly comfortable, even during the unfortunate hike with your bike occasions. However, the screw that secures the latch the shoe has a tendency to loosen. The removal mechanism for the ratcheting system is also not the best as it is sometimes difficult to fully compress the release button because the latch interferes. These shoes also have also become loose after wearing for a bit, which is unfortunate because they feel tight at first. It's a stretchy shoe.

Is there a Fi'zi:k shoe chart available?...

I ordered 40.5 which the shoe tag said was equivalent to an 8, but I found it ran big (fit like a 9). Returning for a 40.

Thanks! Was able to get a hold of Fi'zi:k from their website and they kindly sent me a women's shoes size chart. It seems they run about a size bigger than Sidi (I'm 7.5M in US sizing, 40 in Sidi and it looks like I should be 39 in Fi'zi:k)

nice shoe, but too big

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really liked this shoe and it received great reviews, unfortunately it did not work for me. I tried three different sizes but the heel was always loose and my heel would slip out, even when the shoe was snug in the toe box. I do not have a narrow heel, typically my shoe size tends to be medium to wide. Otherwise it was very well made and I loved the design.
