Very nice !!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great shoes at a great price. Nice stiff carbon composite sole ample padding and just the right amount of room in the toebox. Only complaints are the underpadded thin insole and the lack of replacement buckles and straps. At this price point they should be included. I ware size 11 us 45 euro ordered the 45's and they fit perfectly

A very nice bike shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is very good for that, but a little light would be better.

Great fit. REALLLY stiff !!!

  • Gender: Male
  • Fit: True to size

just got the shoes like 30 min ago, white and black.. i wanted to white and red to match my helmet and red deep rims, but love the white and black as well. They are really stiff, i had a Mavic Galibier before them and they were okay stiff.. These ARE crazy stiff, with a carbon composite sole. I wear 10 .. 10.5... sometimes 11 US.. i got the 43 .. they fit like a glove !! i love them, cant wait to get some miles on them, then ill write a follow up review !! **** the only thing i didnt like, is that the back rubber red thing, was split from the screw . like where they put the screw, the red rubber end opened up. i guess not a big deal but i didnt like to see that !!

Great fit. REALLLY stiff !!!

does it come with an arch support insole ??

Best Answer Responded on

This particular shoe comes with Northwave's "Pro-footbed" which provides ample arch support for most riders; but it's incredibly difficult to know if that particular footbed is optimal for you. I encourage riders to try the stock footbed in the shoe and make an assessment after that. Sometimes that results in going to an aftermarket product, but most riders are perfectly happy with the stock one.

Good shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The sizing was good for me and they're a major upgrade to my last shoes. Love the closure system and everything about them. I though they would be a little bit lighter since they were originally $200 but they're still plenty light.

I ordered a 9 1/2 size 42 on the chart. I received it today snd its tight. How can return it?

Responded on

Hi POJ105229907, I'd be happy to help you set up that return. Please contact me at aujensen@backcountry.com to get that set up.

Great Buy

When I received the shoe I thought it was not good but wait till you use it. Its so light but so tough and it complements my helmet with the same color. It really improves my pedaling technique specially on up climb due to its soft and comfortable pads. Really a good buy for this price.

Is this shoe compatible with Speed Play Zero action Pedals?

Responded on

No the Speedplay Zero Action will not work on this shoe as they are a 4 bolt cleat rather than the 3 hole offered here.

Responded on

I bought these and put Speed Play Light action pedals on using the 3-bolt to 4-bolt adapter that comes with the pedals. I assume this is similar for Speed Play Zero action pedals...

(It may be too late for original poster but others might be interested)

Responded on

Yes you can use any speedplay pedals with these. Speedplay's come with an adapter that allows you to use a 3 bolt shoe. While Arthur Debowski is correct that speedplay's use a 4 bolt pattern, the adapter fixes the problem. The adapter comes with every pedal/cleat.

Here is a vid from speedplay showing how to install them:

Great Pair of Shoes

Got size 46, same size as my older specialized pro carbon shoe. Fit is similar in my opinion. Quality and styling are great. Love the air vent in front of the shoe. No issue in winter/fall rides with a shoe cover or toe cover on cool rides. Toe box has room, so if that is your complaint with Sidi then I would suggest give NW a ride. FYI, got the white pair and love the looks/design,fit, etc.

Responded on

What US size do you wear in normal/running shoes? You said you got a 46 eur, Northwave says you would wear a 13 US....?

I wear a 12 US and I am trying to decide what to get.

Thanks!

Great value

These shoes are a great value for the price. The quality seems pretty close to my friends Sidi Carbon shoes. The fit is pretty similiar to those Sidis, but with a roomier toe box. Still snug but not tight. The color is pretty cool, but is closer to a lime green vs the fluorescent yellow it looked like on my monitor. The other thing is the sizing with Northwaves. The chart is a little off from the other manufacturers which made me a little reluctant. I'm normally a size US10. Im a 43 in the Sidis. The chart for the northwaves show a US10 as 42.5. I went for it and they are pretty true to size. Dont be reluctant. Go for it!

Responded on

I'm a US10 and ordered a northwave 44. Fit great. Tried a 44.5 as well but too big. The sizing chart did throw me off so I wanted to try out in person. Worked out well.
