I am new to road biking. I wanted these shoes to for triathlon training. Since these are my 1st pair of shoes it is hard to know what to expect. I have the yellow and black and I get lots of compliments. the color on the website is wrong. It is less of a yellow and more of a green.
I wear a 8.5 running shoes and got these in a 41. It's a good fit but the heel does not lock down completely. The inside of the shoe has a soft and smooth feeling. Those sole is definitely stiff!
I use these to commute to work and training. Ride about 60 miles a week. My big toes does get numb sometimes but I think that has to do with being a masher and jamming the toes to the front of the shoe. I just changed cleat position and I'll see how that helps. Rode to Mt. Baldy ski lifts. No problems going up, but descending made my toes numb probably from jamming my toes while cornering.
