Reviewed by Fall Weather Fan from Western MA on Monday, February 29, 2016Have to echo the other reviewers here. These are really nice shoes, great ventilation, stiff sole, plus eye-catching. I ordered a half size from other road shoes and thought the length was OK; however they're so narrow around the ball of the foot that I couldn't get comfortable, even in the thinnest socks. If they were leather they might stretch a bit. Regretted sending 'em back - hope they fit somebody else.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by BeachBill from Florida on Saturday, November 28, 2015These guys are noticeably lighter than my other shoes, and it makes a difference. The vents are great for hot rides. I have high arches and the top strap is a bit short. I only have a small patch of velcro holding it on.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by USMA74 from Cincinnati on Thursday, October 22, 2015Very light, and totally vented (the gray area in the picture is mesh). I suspect I'll want toe covers as it gets colder. Good fit - very comfortable on first ride and after several rides. Size seemed true w/ wool cycling socks - I ordered a 42.5, and wear a US 9D.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by JB from Oregon on Sunday, April 26, 2015Some of the best cycling shoes I've owned from a performance (light and stiff), fit and aesthetics perspective! The STP price certainly adds to my over-all satisfaction. However be forewarned, these run a full size to size and one-half small - even compared to other PI cycling shoes I have owned!
