Odd-looking wide toe-box, but light, stiff, classy and super-comfortable...
When you’re sitting in these oven-toasty shoes as they mould to your feet, the first thing you notice is their slightly flipper-like appearance. This is due to the wide Ergoshell toebox which, although not as aesthetically pleasing as a traditional narrow-shaped cycling shoe, is blissfully comfortable.
This comfort applies to the whole shoe – they’re like a pair of carbon slippers. Stripped down and minimal at 278g (for the size 45), they’re very low cut around the ankle and have an industry-leading low stack height. But they still feel rock-solid and secure on your feet.
There’s no little stiffness either, with the carbon monocoque chassis ensuring all your effort goes through to your pedals. The leather uppers give a classy finish, vent well and, with replaceable sole guards and buckles, will give you plenty of miles of service.
