Bill S.wrote a review of Fi'zi:k R1B Uomo Boa Limited Edition Cycling Shoe - Men's on March 2, 2017
When it comes to shoes I have serious issues. If there is the littlest imperfection in the fit it finds a way to explode onto my foot somewhere. Having fought plantar fasciitis a few years ago I have learned the hard way that one of the most important pieces of equipment for a rider is undoubtedly shoes. The new fizik R1B is not only one of the most comfortable cycling shoes I have worn, but one of the most comfortable shoes I have worn.
Fizk calls it Volume Control technology with some micro-adjustable Boa IP1 closure controls...I call it a comfortable shoe.
As soon I slide my foot in I knew it was going to be a good fit, even without putting in my own insoles. Surprisingly the insoles are really good with a good amount of arch support and dense cushion. Nothing I hate more than spending a few hundred dollars on shoes and the first I do is throw the footbed away. Not saying these shoes will work for you, everyone is different when it comes to shoes, but I have worn a lot of different shoes and these are at the top of the list right now. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions and/or concerns about fit.
Size Purchased: 42.5, I could wear a 42, but like the extra room.
For reference I wear a Specialized 42.5, Shimano 42.5, Giro 43, Adidas 42-¾, Nike 42.5, Sidi 42 / 42.5
