Have been riding with these shoes since Christmas 2010. Purchased the electric blue style (discontinued) in size 43.5. They certainly look the part but comfort is average. The right shoe rubbed uncomfortably above the toe (RH side). I've never had issues with cycling shoes, boots or other footwear (inc. hiking footwear) where one shoe fits differently to the other. They have worn in and are okay now. My regular size is 43 to 44 or US 10. The shoes breath well and I have no issues with perspiration or odour. They are very rigid and supportive. At over $300 in Australia, and I only paid $US164 for them, I rated them 4 stars. I've ridden about 3000 km with them and there is no sign of deterioration.
