Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I now have a few weeks on the Terraduro Mid. Sizing was about .5 larger than other shoes I've used (e.g. I am a 46 2/3 in Mavic which I've worn for 10 years and I ordered the 46.5 Giros and they were too small). The 47s I am running fit super comfortably. I have a 'standard' foot...not too wide...and I feel there is enough room in the toe box. Heat wise, I have been running these in the summer here in CO and I never feel like my feet are hot/swelling. The lacing system is fine for getting the right tightness, but the 'mud flap' protector is a bit of a pain to keep out of the way as you're tying the shoes up. One potential issue I experienced is with the interface between the Vibram sole and the Shimano XT pedals I am running (XT M8000 pedals, not the Trail version with the larger platform/body). The interface is tight, meaning you need to really apply a lot of force to clip in...and in some cases will pop my foot out. This happened a few times while getting air and was a bit disconcerting. I put a Crank Brothers shim to 'lift' the cleat a bit higher and has helped a bit. I suspect that once the sole wears a bit and loses some material, things will be better but I am still watching this carefully. I have not tried Time ATAC pedals with this shoe yet to see what that interface is like but may. I switched to Shimanos as the Time's unfortunately are not resilient enough to take pedal strikes on rocks which obviously happens when you're driving your bike trough the rowdy chunder!

Time ATACs and Time Speciale's both are problem free in terms of shoe/pedal interface. Need to continue looking into the Shimano pedal interface issue descried above.
