Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is my third tri shoe from LG...I've never been unhappy with any of their products but this shoe is certainly my favorite. My favorite features are the VERY stiff carbon fiber sole, the upper material is very breathable and cool, having two insoles(one hot, one cold) is very helpful for those colder rides, and shoe itself is very light. I always wear them barefoot and have had no problems with any kind of hot spots or blisters. The pull tabs on the back are just the right size, easy to use when you need them but don't get in the way. I do olympic to full ironman distance races, ride 250+ miles per week, and would recommend these to any triathlete!
I also recommend buying them from backcountry.com, their staff is always very helpful when asking any questions as well as getting gear to you as quick as possible. Obviously you can't go wrong with the return policy as well!
