    Let me start by saying for the 4 months that i was able to ride in these shoes i LOVED them unconditionally. I was pushed towards Mavic by a good friend whose quite an experienced rider, but quite frankly Mavic womens mtb shoe is white...i was never allowed to wear white to go play in the mud as a kid, i'm not going to do it as an adult. So I stumbled upon these and was convinced i had made the best decision ever. They fit true to size, unbelievably stiff, have great traction (i do a lot of "hiking" when i ride :-/ , super comfy, and look fantastic. No complaints. However, last month i snagged my foot doing a log over and *BOOM* shoe was done. The ratchet strap is attached to the leather buckle by a "hook and loop" type plastic fastener. The plastic broke and now my shoe is useless as i can't ratchet down the most important strap. Mind you, I am not an aggressive rider, I fall much harder than i ride...and this was barely a snag that did the shoe in. I will admit i have extremely skinny feet and have to ratchet the strap to its tightest click, so the strap didn't have any give left in it. My shoes are currently at Pearl Izumi's warranty department where they will hopefully be replaced. Perhaps mine were flawed from the box...I'm hoping for great customer service with a swift replacement. Fingers crossed I will be able to revise this review with glowing compliments about awesome customer service. I do love this shoe, which makes its "failure" even tougher to stomach.

    Don't forget to buy the cleats separately though! Other than that I had no problem with these shoes. From the reviews I read I ordered one size bigger and they fit perfectly and they didn't take very long to break in either.

    There were two options of shoes was a blue black and gray and the other was black and gray, i asked for the black and gray, and you sent the one with blue and i don't like the one with blue, i live in Dominican Republic and it makes it difficult for me send it, and more expensive,I want to know mi options, I hope for your response.

    thank you!
