Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've ridden around 1000 miles in these and they continue to be very comfortable, durable and the lacing system provides an amazing fit. I had a pair of SiDis before that were great shoes but the ball of my big toe hurt after 1.5 hours. I can ride 4 hours in these shoes with minimal pain.
