Outstanding Shoes

I paid full price for these and they were worth it. The heat to fit works well, but really, the fit was great right out of the box. Sidi's are equal on the fit but their sole is inferior. The kelvar under the cleat aids in keeping the cleat secure and does reduce fatigue. I've never had a hot spot even using Speedplay pedals. I compared them to Bont, Diadora, Fizik, Giro and DMT. Bonts were lighter and stiffer but the fit and build quality were not as good. Fizik were close on the fit but cost more. I've used them for long road rides (75-110 miles) and track sprinting. It's been great for all of those extremes. I may buy another pair for when these wear out (which will probably take five years).
