The BOA lacing is great concept - mostly seen in other brand of more expensive shoes - but after a dozen times wearing them, I could start to feel discomfort from feeling the lacing through the padded tongue and onto the top of my foot. I like to ride fast and climb, so I do tend to lace my bike shoes firmly for optimal power transfer. Perhaps for leisure use, one would not have the same issue as me, as a looser lace tension may not be problematic.
Also, I find the heel area near the achilles tendon is cut too high, I got irritation there. I guess it is to accomodate the BOA dial. This design flaw however can be remedied by lifting the inner sole and placing an inexpensive drug store heel lift under it.
As for the sizing, I'm a US size 6 and the size 36 was absolutely the right choice (NOTE that the website indicates size 36 = US size 5). I got the silver with black accents - it looks classy just like the photo.

These were returned due to being significantly oversized. The STP comments says to order larger because they run small but we found the opposite. When we ordered the next size up as advised, my wife felt they were potentially two sizes too big. Otherwise, they seemed to be great shoes, although we cannot speak to durability or long-term comfort.

Like a new pair of Buster Browns, stiff almost too stiff for my tastes but I am breaking them in. They are great for cool and cold rides, as I need to wear heavier socks. A tad wide which leaves them lacking in support I need. Boa lacing is great.
