Closeouts. Pearl Izumi's X-Alp Seek III mountain bike shoes offer the best of both worlds, with the breathable comfort of a running shoe and a Run and Ride plate that delivers pedaling power when you're in the saddle.

I have cycled over 30,000 miles including some 20,000 touring the entire world. I need cleated shoes that not only work while biking, but can also be worn for hiking, camping and all the other activities I do off the bike while touring. As a result all the new completely stiff soles do not work for me. These shoes have a good solid sole, but not so stiff I am miserable in them for long periods of time. Plus they look awesome and are very comfortable

Nice shoe, but size/fit does not match the labeled size. I was able to exchange them at a Pearl Izumi store, as they have a "60 day fit guarantee". The person at the store stated that Pearl Izumi shoes run about 1 US size smaller than the labeled size.
