Alan K.wrote a review of Pearl Izumi X-ALP Journey Cycling Shoe - Men's on April 5, 2019
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Upon arrival, the shoe looks very nice and well made. It should have good traction. Wore it around the house for a few minutes. Noticed that the laces put uncomfortable pressure on the top of my foot when laced tight enough to feel secure. The problem is that the tongue is very thin with no padding and the quick laces are very thin strings which cut into my foot. The tongue needs more padding to work for me, returned item.
