Hot Shoes Cool Feet (I'm punny)
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 vented upper is killer 4. The footbed can be adapted to fit your foot perfectly. One note would be that if you live in a 4 season climate, and these are going to be your only shoe, the normal S-Works 7 would probably be a better bet, since the vented upper would make it diffucult to keep your feet warm below 50-60 degrees. I should also 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.

Vents are definitely better for hotter riding weather. Can be good for long distance triathlons as well. The Boa dials don't pop up for an easier transition though if it made a difference in your race time... you'd be sponsored 🤣 If looking for a long distance road shoe for triathlon. Take a look at the Giro Imperial.
