Although many reviews say they run true to size as well as the sizing chart, they run small. I wear a 6.5 or 7 in a shoe and a 38 was too small.

I finally wore out a pair of Specialized Body Geometry S-Works road shoes (circa 2011). They fit my feet like a glove from day one -- stated size 48 EU/13.75 USA. I wear a size 13 street shoe. I got a pair of size 48 Specialized Area through my LBS and rode them about 500 miles but had to admit to myself that they are too large. My bad -- they're mine now. Specialized is quite clear that street shoe size 13 is now a 47 EU in their road shoe so I guess they changed the US sizing along the way. Unfortunately, the LBS's around here are faced with COVID supply issues (see if you can find a 11-speed Shimano chain!). So I ordered the Specialized S-Works 7 through CC, in a size 47. Beautiful shoe. Length is just right BUT they are just too narrow for my otherwise normal foot (I ain't no EEE). I've got to return them after wearing them indoors while seated on my sofa. I'm going to visit with the good folks at CC to see if they have a recommendation. They're currently Out-of-Stock on the 48 Wides.

This is the best biking shoe that I have ever owned! I have a wider front foot. Specialized shoes fit me well. This shoe was no exception - it fits perfectly. I have only ridden 20 miles but I can feel the power transfer difference between this pair of shoes and my old shoes.

I purchased the white, size 42 normal. I wear a size 8.5 in shoes and always get a 42 which equivalent to size 9. I have narrow feet and mid to low arch. Specialized know how to make shoes fit like a glove. I've owned S Works 5 and Sub 6, they all fit the same "perfect". Not too many shoes out there that are all white so had to get these. Positives: great fit and room for my toes to wiggle around. Boa dials are great, very stylish. You can put these shoes on and don't have to really tighten the boas because the fit around the foot just envelopes your foot. Negatives: There is a little too much material on the retention side and this rubs the top of my foot but the discomfort goes away. Only really a problem if you ankle down on your pedal stroke.

I've exclusively worn S-Works shoes for over the past 12 years. Stiff. Light. Comfortable. My S-Works 6 shoes finally failed after who knows how many miles when the BOA dial seized up and I needed wire cutters to remove the shoe. No worries. I had picked up a pair of 7s a few months ago, so now I had a chance to "upgrade." Unfortunately, they caused pain points below each ankle with the first pedal strokes on my S-Works Venge that was also on its maiden trip. Ten miles into a 100km ride, I had to turn around. Complete agony. Was greeted with two blisters when I got home. First time I ever got a blister while riding. Maybe these 7s need to be "broken in." For the elevated price these shoes cost, it isn't worth the pain.

I have returned so many shoes, glad to finally keep a pair. I am a size 14 on my right foot and 13.5 wide on my left. I go for a size 49 on specialized shoes and they do not disappoint. Some have complained about numbness or the shoes being too tight and I have no issues with the shoe fit. Any toe numbness I have encountered was resolved by changing the cleat position and using the specialized medium arch insoles. I think anyone that is having a fit issue with these shoes likely bought the wrong size.

The shoe is lightweight and very firm but narrow. Also, being a universal shoe it did not fit a women’s foot well. The heel was deep causing the ankles to rub (tried heel lifts which helped but then caused the tongue to dig into the front of the ankle). Also, being narrow and stiff is uncomfortable to one with wide feet resulting in numbness and cramping. Hoping to look at Bont. Competitive was very understanding and permitted me to return the shoes for a store credit after a one-time use.

You know Specialized S-Works 7 comes in Regular, Narrow, and Wide.

i have had these for 6 months now and when I first wore them they were horrible. Super snug almost painful to wear. I tried every different insole with these and almost sold them. As with anything especially cycling shoes certain feet do not work these. S Works 7 is the only non neutral shoe on the market. With 1.5 varus wedge built in the front it is hard to get used to the raised toe. I ended up putting a custom orthotic in which actually stretched out the shoe a bit.(and they said these do not stretch with the dyneema). I am here to tell you different. They do. The shoe actually works out now as the orthotic created a lot of room all over. If i had to buy again I would pass and look for a shoe comfortable enough on the first ride.

The Benchmark

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

If you want to spend $400+ on a pair of cycling shoes, you're spoiled for choice. Sidi, Shimano, Lake, Bont, Fizik, Bontrager, Giro, and countless others all make great shoes. Zeroing in on the right pair is tricky, and even though it's a good problem, it's still a problem. I do my best to review shoes on their objective merits. I can't guarantee that the S-Works, or any other shoe will play nicely with your feet. That being said, personal comfort aside, I think that these are the shoe to beat. I'd argue that based on 4 points. 1. These are as-stiff or stiffer than any shoe I've ever ridden (RC9, Shot, Empire, 402). 2. The Specialized-specific boas are hands-down better than anything else I've ever used. 3. The dyneema upper is killer. 4. The footbed can be adapted to fit your foot perfectly. I should specify that while I think these beat out Shimano's old S-Phyre (my historical favorite,) I haven't had a chance to ride the new 902s. That said, I can't imagine them being better than the S-Works. I really do believe that these are the shoes to beat today.

I just tried the 902... super super disappointed. Shimano already had screwed up sizing, and they made a very half-ass attempt to reconcile. A 48 is still labeled as 12.4US, but it fits much more like a 13+, decided to then order a 47 to see... labeled as an 11.8US and fits more like a 12.4ish - I'm generally a 46.5 or a 47, and the RC901 I tried a 48 and it fit well - but decided to wait for the 902 and they botched it.

I've put about 2k miles on these shoes, and I love them. When I first tried them on, I had some pain on the top of my foot with the top closure, but once I figured out the right adjustments, they broke in nicely, and the power transfer is amazing. I will probably buy another pair in a different color.

Initially I had isolated foot pain on the top of the shoe. I think its where the boa attaches to the top of the shoe, the material is very inflexible and digs in. A year in and its getting better but wish I had gone with Shimano's, I like the design of the overlapping closure on the top. Other than that they are great shoes.

I've worn this shoe for just over a week and wore them yesterday while riding a 104 mile ride in a downpour. NO ISSUES what so ever! I wear a 13 1/2 or a 48 and the shoe fits perfectly. I replaced an older pair of S Works shoes and these are also OUTSTANDING! Keep up the great work SPECIALIZED!

These shoes are pretty fantastic. Like all shoes, they might fit some people better than others. The material that they use is super easy to clean off so even after a full season of riding they look pretty good. I ended up getting S-Works Recons as well after riding these because I liked how well they fit. For reference, I wear a 43 in shimano, 42 in giro and got a 42 in these.

These
