This is a great quality shoe with good arch support but this brand runsVERY small. I wear a women's size 8.5 which is euro size 39. I got the 39 in this shoe and couldn't get the shoe on. My foot was as long as the outside sole so I reordered 2 and 3 sizes larger. The 41 fit like a true 39 so my advice is order2 sizes up in this shoe.

There are a lot of bold shoes out there to choose from, there are few that hold off on flash and focus on form. These shoes did the latter for me. In a size 47, they weren't too wide for my slender feet and the lacing enabled me to achieve the perfect fit. The mesh offers good ventilation and the balance of the shoe seems quite rugged. The velcro strap is somewhat redundant, unless you stop the laces short of the top so that you can slip into the shoes and then lock your foot in with the strap. I was concerned that the recessed cleat area lacked the ability to adjust the cleat forward and back. Don't let the oval cover fool you, there are two sets of threaded members that allow a generous range of adjustment. For those with high arches, you may find the sole insert lacking in support. For those with flatter feet, you may be more comfortable removing the insert and going with a flat foam one or simply fitting the foam one over the existing insert by cutting out the area that goes over the arch bulge. I don't know how well these will wear over time, but first impressions are very positive. One downside of these shoes (and the only reason I held off on the 5 star rating) is that they are heavy, but hey, you're in this for the workout, aren't you?

These are probably not going to be around long, but I purchased them in order to replace some older MTB shoes I had. Since I have short commutes to work, I wanted something I could keep on when walking around the building, yet still be able to hop on the bike. These fit that mold. They pinch a little tight in the forefoot but you can always adjust that with the laces. They are sturdy and provide a solid platform when you clip in.
If they had other colors I would buy these as well.
