I'm stunned at how good these shoes are. I got lucky and nabbed a black 10.5 from BT. First of all, they look awesome. Second, they feel great on my feet during rides; nice and form fitting w/ no hotspots. Third, these are my first carbon sole (upgraded from a Specialized shoe); they feel so much stiffer under my feet. I didn't realize what I was missing. Not sure if they really make me any faster or not but they definitely make you feel faster. If they have your size, get them in whatever color is available.
