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!

UPDATE:
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.
