Rated 4 out of 5 by Hulk65 Nice and fast
Bought these as a replacement for my high end(and old) Adidas shoes with carbonfibre soles. The flashy and high-tech features(regardless of old style straps) together with good reviews convinced me in buying.
After about 10 test rides I can say that these shoes are really nice and do the job almost perfectly. The feel and stiffnes of the sole is excelent and the overall fit is good.
The upper plastic like material looks good, but I am a little concerned about the hardwear of this "leather". The ventilation is extremely good which narrows these shoes down to summer use. The heel fit is average and more padding would be nice.
The straps seems to be downsized but do the job ok.
Sizing : I wear size 42.5EU, ordered 43.5(28.75cm), they fitted ok with the spare insole.
Would I buy them again? Well, I look for comfort and versatility so I guess not.

Scarpa elegante,rigida e molto comoda oltre che peso piuma..lo strap superiore forse da rivedere x vestibilità.
