X5 Artica Cycling Shoe

When Old Man Winter is knocking at your door its best not to take his threats lightly. That isn't to stay that you should settle into the sofa with a cup of tea and binge watch your latest go-to series, but rather, pack on your best winter gear and meet him head on as you rocket down sparsely populated trails and crush frost coated climbs. The Fi'zi:k X5 Artica Cycling Shoes make the perfect addition to winter ready kit when you're ready to brave the cold, arming you with battle-ready winter protection for fat biking extravaganzas, or just extra-chilly trail days, thanks to its fully waterproof uppers that insulate you, and beefy lugged tread that keeps you from sliding out on ice patches on foot.

The X5 Artica's unique design combines an elite Fi'zi:k shoe fit with two layer technology to ensure total winter warmth. The inner layer insulates, and snugly secures your foot with a speed lace that wraps around you to provide an accurate and precise fit, giving you total support on the bike. The outer layer of the shoe is crafted from a Microtex reinforced shell that is seamlessly bonded to the inner, keeping the shoes low-profile while offering robust protection. A waterproof and breathable membrane wraps around the entire upper, making sure moisture can't permeate, but sweat can be wisked away, preventing cold, wet feet while you ride.

We all prefer to max out our trail miles on bike, but never the less encounter stretches of dirt that are best hiked — especially in icy winter conditions, and the Artica does its best to make sure your footing stays sure on particularly treacherous sections of trail. Beefy lugs grip ice, sand, and mud to keep you secure, and spikes can be mounted at the toe if you're in need of a little bit more to keep you confident through the elements. The outsole itself is built from carbon reinforced nylon, designed for stiffness on the bike that maximizes your power transfer, and just a touch of flex when you're off, allowing torsional flex that keeps your gait natural on foot. The inside uses Fi'zi:k's winter edition cycling insole, with a cozy fleece upper, and insulating aluminum foil on the underside to keep you warm through the coldest of days.

  • Winter trail shoes fit for the pros
  • Double-layer uppers insulate and shield the elements

Keeps your feet warm but not dry

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

I've had them for a week, they do keep my feet warm in 15 deg weather but a slight rain and your feet will be soak.

Surprising warmth

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I expected waterproofs because of the upper material but didn't expect the shoe to retain so much warmth. Usually my feet get cold at 42-45F after an hour with MB shoes and medium weight wool sock. I wore a heavy weight wool sock with these shoes in 30F, 15-20mph winds after 30 mins and I didn't notice the slightest bit of foot/toes coldness. Fit is a little wide, wide enough for a medium and heavy weight wool sock and still not feel too tight. Easy in, easy out.

3 Days of Use 4 Stars

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Runs large

Day 1 - 52 miles, 3 hours, road ride, endurance pace, 32° f with dry roads - Comfortable, dry and warm. Not a race-stiff sole, but I wasn't expecting it to be. I had zero issues with my feet. Day 2 - Fat bike endurance ride, 1:30, 12 miles, 1300ft of climbing, 32°f with freezing rain on roads and mtb trails- warm and dry! However, freezing rain isn't as wet at rain. Day 3 - 38 miles, 2-1/4 hours, 2,700ft of vert, tempo and endurance road ride with HEAVY road spray, endurance pace, 30° f with wet roads - I needed fenders! This would have fixed the fact that the cuff of the boot eventually succumbed to water infiltration. I ended up with damp to wet, but WARM feet. Since the upper cuff will not keep out heavy water spray, it will not be greater than a 4-star rating. However, great value for now. Need to log more rides to know for use. In the meantime, I am pleased with my purchase. I look forward to trying these boots when it is colder, in 20°s. I wear a 44.5 Sidi. The 45 was too big, and went with a 44.


How do Fizik sizes compare to shimano? I’m a spot on 45 and was thinking 45.5 in these to accommodate thin wool socks?

I just ordered these Fizik shoes and Giro Empire VR90's. Both in size 45. The Fiziks are too big... Even tried with ski socks. Going to have to send them back.

These things are awesome!! Fit true to size and are entirely waterproof. Guaranteed to keep your feet happy on those wet, cold days.

Bought these for fat biking through Iowa winters (brutal) and so far these are the best winter shoes I have purchased. I have been wearing with a thin wool cycling sock and my feet stay warm (wind-chill below freezing). My main reason for giving these 5 stars is how easy they are to keep clean. The shell on these shoes can easily be wiped off after a wet ride and they look brand new. Love the look of these shoes.

Wore these for the first time 45 degrees with 20 mph constant blustery winds. Wind Chill temp was 38. Wore these with thin summer sock and feet weren't cold. Speed lacing tends to loosen up slightly over the course of the ride with the thin socks. These will be more comfortable with a thicker fall/winter sock. Looks great 11.5 US bought 44.5 fit is great.
