My main gripe is that the sole of this shoe has a slippery hard plastic bit between the forefoot lugs and the heel lugs. If you miss clipping into the cleat there's a good chance your foot will slip right off the pedal - so be careful until you got the feel right.
Also, this slippery plastic can be a bit of a hazard when walking if you happen to place your foot on a hard edge. It's like being on ice skates! Though making the shoe a little heavier it would have been better if they had continued the lugs through the mid foot.
The lugs themselves could also be a bit softer and stickier, though of course this would affect their longevity.
Overall, a decent comfortable and stiff shoe for the money.
Definitely a solid shoe and great for the price. You get a nice stiff sole, quality materials so it'll hold up to a spill or two, and a Boa tightening system. In reality I'd love it to be a double Boa system rather than the little velcro strap at the bottom. I find shoes that have the double Boa do a better job of molding to your foot as it tightens from multiple angles.
After receiving them I am definitely impressed. The weight is only slightly more than my s-works, but the fit and feel is as good, or better, than those. The upper feels pliable but strong enough to protect my feel, and the color is really good. The layout and height of the tread make the shoe very stable on dirt/rocks/gravel, and not nearly as uncomfortable to walk in as other shoes I've tried. The toe box has some nice protection as well with a harder coating over the upper.
The fit is also perfect, I wear a size 12.5-13 US, and ordered a 46.5. These were true to size and fit like a dream. they are tight in the heel box and sides, but have just enough room in the toes to not make you foot start hurting of feel like you can only wear the thinnest of socks.
On the bike, these things feel even better. The boa easily gets the shoe nice and snug, and the faux-carbon shank feels just as sturdy as my previous shoes with full carbon.
Haven't put in a ton of miles on them yet, but so far they are comfortable while pedaling.
Overall, a great shoe for the price. I've already recommended to friends.

The only thing I disliked about it was the sizing system they had, I wear 8 1/2, they had 8 1/4 or 8 3/4, so the shoes are just a touch snug.
Overall 👍👍 worth it!
