    Lake for people with wide feet. You draw around your feet on a sheet of paper and compare with their guide and the fit suggested is spot on. Makes much more sense than other brands that just have shows the length and don’t know how wide the shoe is. I have had to buy Shimano shoes 3 sizes larger than I need. The wide fit Lake shoes are fantastic and super comfy.

    If FIT is so critical, critique how shoes fit relative to others (like SIdi’s are quite narrow; Spec 6 has a smaller toebox than prior version – Torch fits ?). Have a size X tester try on all shoes to determine equivalent sizes and comment on width, etc.

    Besides Sidi, I’m always surprised that when you buy a top-dollar shoe; that they don’t all have replaceable heel and toe pads. Those always wear out before the rest of the shoe

    That woman at the start looked like she walked off in disgust. Funny

    As fantastic as Giro’s shoes are, they’re produced by Vista Outdoor, which also makes gun accessories, and supports the NRA. Most retailers have stopped buying them, Blackburn, and Bell

    The Giro shoes look a touch Adidas like.

    Fit and comfort …. I haven’t yet found a bike shop where I can try on different shoes and compare. If I’m lucky they have one model in my size (47). Otherwise they’ll offer to make a special order with the assumption I’ll buy, and if I don’t I get grief. The alternative is endless mail order returns. Shoes are my only (or should it be sole) cycling hate.

    Why are they all so narrow

    Funny how ALWAYS finds SIX recommended items, parrots the companies’ marketing bullet points, and rarely dispenses discerning criticism that could actually aid in choosing a particular product.

  10. Mark Munro on July 1, 2019 at 10:30 pm have you had a look at Danilo Di Luca’s KS1 shoes yet? cheers.

    Anyone else distracted by Mrs. Red Jacket for the first 30 seconds or so? 😀

    The DHB Dorica (shown first) is also available with treads (and stud mounts) on the sole. If you use a two cleat system this allows you to walk in them comfortably. But beware, sizing is generous so you might want to go down one size when ordering.

    The sidis look a bit dated. After using boas for quite a while, I just don’t see myself going back to laces or straps as the primary cinch points.

    i use shimano sdh5 sandals w xtr9020 😀

    Why is it that most cycling shoe reviews seem allergic to the GAERNE Carbon G Stilo. Why? They are amazing shoes.
    Its always about Giro, Shimano and Specialized compared to two or three other horrible shoes. your sponsorship is showing.

    So laced racing shoes..look very cool..but in functionality..dumb..they will stretch after a few rides and you will constantly have to tweak the fit. They will wear out way before cam lock systems will…and they will be out of style sooner than later.
