Closeouts. Pedal powerfully and comfortably during long rides in Carnac's Notus road cycling shoes. The carbon-fiber-reinforced heel locks your foot in place and three large air intakes keep your feet well ventilated.

I wear a size 11.5/12 and have a wide foot. Have found that the 45 in this shoe fits pretty well. And I generally like riding in it a lot. But I have had some seams come loose. Not sure if that's a typical problem with the shoe, but it bums me out given that it costs so much and I bought it so recently.

These are great shoes that run a half to a full size small, and are built on a narrow last. [My poor toes!] I liked these shoes enough --especially at less than half MSRP-- that I ordered a larger pair to see if they would accommodate my feet.
Pros: Good Looking, Light, Very stiff carbon sole, Well Made

I have been a long term bicyclist. As a result, I have owned a large number of different shoes (SIDI, Carnac, Specialized, Lake..). As a rule, Carnacs have for me been typically French -- well built but with a narrow toe box. The last Carnacs that I had that worked well were the Greg Lemonds (that gives you an idea of how long I have been riding). When these Carnacs came on sale, given the price, I had to try them. Well, they work and they work well.
They are well built (what else) but more importantly they fit well. In riding, they are comfortable. Also, with the very stiff sole, you get good power transmission. These are great shoes -- up with SIDIs. I am very glad that I got them since the SIDIs that they replace were difficult to buckle up.
A great shoe at a great price -- what else do you want.
Best Uses: Any type of riding
