While these shoes have a great look and style the R5's, which are the lower-end of the Fizik line have the worst fit on the planet. I have an older pair of R2's and the fit with them is nothing more than perfect. No hot spots and they run cool for so much leather. But these R5's are tight in the toe and sloppy in the heel. I thought they were broken when I first put them on. Stick with the better Fizik shoes.
