Perhaps the most PRO looking shoes out there... That and they are STIFF, the "Flex" Sidi talks about in their write up is not noticeable, but then again I'm coming from the Sidi composite sole. The 4-hole drilling makes mounting new cleats super easy, and adjusting them even easier! Be warned they do take some breaking in as they are completely Vernice and are rather rigid to start with. I've put 700miles on them since the new year and they are just now starting to feel molded to my feet. Expensive but perhaps the last shoe I'll ever buy.
