This season I put several hundred miles on these shoes and they are great. They fit like a glove. I was concerned they would be narrow, but they are spot on. Comfortable from the very first ride. Stiff exactly where they need to be. I've had no issues getting in and out of my SPD pedals, which reminds me it's time for some new pedals, but I digress. I did have a blow out and ended up having to huff it back to the trailhead and these are surprisingly comfortable. Dismounted pushing the bike up some seriously steep inclines, there is plenty of grip. The one side benefit, and I know this might sound silly, but they're quiet. Previous Sidi and Specialized sounded like Dutch wooden clogs. I was worried about no vents or mesh, but after a VERY hot summer these were no problem. Hope they last 'cause these are some sweet cycling shoes. I know early batches had the delamination problem. My resident gearhead assured me these are post that batch and so far they've been solid.
