I ride the ACC Empires, so these fit very similarly. I've found the material on the shoe to be very supple, almost too supple for trails. It's easy to overtighten the shoe with the laces - more so than my ACCs for some reason - and the material is already scuffed and torn (not all the way through) from brushing rocks. The exposed carbon on the bottom gets easily imprinted if you have to scramble over anything, but the Vibram rubber is brilliant at gripping. These may not be the best shoes for XC trail adventures. These are probably way more suited for CX and Gravel at this point. I have yet to find a shoe with a BOA fit that feels good to me for racing. These fit that need but are just a little less prepared for adventures on the MTB when you're not racing. If you want to race XC and CX and can only afford one shoe like me, these are still your shoe, but beware that they will get beat up quickly if you find yourself adventuring on trails when not racing.

Hey Gabe! Did you buy them a little big? How do they break in? Thanks.
