I wear a size 111/2 to 12 street shoe and the 45.5 Time fit me like a glove. The shoes are extremely comfortable and appear well made. There has been some chatter on the web about the ratchet strap not being so great. I will agree with that, but at the discounted STP price it's not a deal breaker. The soles of my feet are very happy with their new platform.

Let me begin by saying that I am in pursuit of the perfect bicycle shoe -- durable, stiff sole, sufficiently wide (something that the SIDIs seem to be having problem with recently -- too narrow), comfortable, easy to get in and out of. I have two pairs of the Carnacs that I bought from Sierra (great shoe) that worked out well for me. Decided to try the Times when they got on sale. Great shoe. Checked all of my boxes plus you get features that you would only expect from a high end shoe (specifically, heat fit - you can heat the shoe and then wear it so that the shoe conforms to your foot). When combined with the iClic from Time, a great combination.
Try them -- you will like. How much do I like mine? I am getting rid of my SIDIs - how is that for an answer.

They seem like pretty nice biking shoes right out of the box, comfortable and carbon fiber adds a great level of stiffness that makes the upward pull on the pedal so much easier. Top buckle takes some getting used to, and it isn't easy to get them off in a hurry, and it takes a little time to get them snug. Probably not the best choice for triathlons, but for cycling in general they seem great.

Great shoe. They fit like gloves right out of the box;no need for me to do the heat-to-fit thing. The shoes are stiff yet comfortable, making them excellent for enabling and enhancing power transfer, especially on sprints and climbs. I've been on several rides since owning these shoes and they are always comfortable from beginning to end. Nice to look at as well-I've had several complements. I think with shoes, alot depends on the shape of an individual's foot, and these seem like they were made for me.
