    I ordered this item and received two different shoes in the same box! Needless to say, I was disappointed. Unfortunately never had the opportunity to try this product.
  • Reviewed by I’ve tested this product over the last 8 months in Colorado. From the previous version to the latest version I have found significant difference in the fit of the shoe. While previous versions stretched fairly quickly this current pair has maintained its original shape. The sole of the shoe has also been a highlight from past versions. I’ve found less flex in the sole and this is something I prefer. The stiffer-sole is again another piece of the current R3 Donna that continues to maintain itself over months of riding through a variety of conditions. The uppers of the shoe are made from Kangaroo leather and a Nylon mesh. The leather is flexible and the mesh allows for air to flow through keeping your feet cool in the dry weather in Colorado. The straps are made to fight stretching and done so by using sailcloth. The two bottom straps are secured with Velcro. The top strap is made with an aluminum ratchet closure. My favorite piece of the shoe is the top strap and the adjustability range it entails. You can tighten the ratchet for a comfortable fit you can shorten the strap to fit your specific needs. To do so; thread the strap through the loop that doubles back on itself and secure the strap in place with the Velcro. Bottom line Fizik has made significant improvements to focus on the needs of a women cyclist to make a comfortable lasting shoe. I would recommend this shoe for a woman that is looking for a little more performance. from Colorado on Sunday, November 9, 2014

    This shoe is very thing it promises to be. I bought these shoes for my wife she is very happy with them. High performance matches great style.

    Really like the retro look of these shoes, remind me of bowling shoes. Originally ordered women's DMTs in 42, not a good fit. Replaced with these but 1st pair in the 42 were way too big ( is the standard size I usually order for my size 10 foot). Had to return for 41.5 which fits great. Shoes are nice and lightweight, nice arch support , and nice and stiff in the sole for good power transfer. Heel slips just a little, so heel cup could have been a little snugger. Overall, happy to have a well fitting functional shoe with fun/funky styling, nothing generic about these.

    I'd been looking for a great cycling shoe that actually was true to size and finally found it with the Fizik R3 Donna. They fit according to their advertised sizing so no worrying about "runs small--order one size larger" or any of that business. As for performance, they're lightweight with a stiff bottom--the only negative is the cinch strap could be a little tighter. Besides great fit and function, they look great. They are a standout shoe that has it all!
