Really impressed with these shoes, the quality and feel of the materials, particularly the leather uppers is fantastic and they also look really stylish. In use, they've made a real difference to my rides, with my previous shoes I used to suffer with mild foot pain and numb feet, but not with these. Would highly recommend to anyone and at the price available from Merlin they're an absolute steal!
I had read a lot about them and their almost mythical status, so my expectations were pretty high. I'm glad to say that they've so far lived up to the hype. Comfortable, well constructed, firm and cool looking. Couldn't be happier.
Excellent quality and really comfortable. They feel like slippers! The carbon sole and heel cup are super stiff as well. They are a bit flash Harry but I can live with that!
Super comfortable. I wish they made a treaded MTB style shoe. And that road shoes in general were better suited to walking.
Nice shoes at an amazing price. Quite a high instep, which takes a few rides to get used to but very good none the less.
Great shoe. Bought to replace a pair of ageing North Wave shoes. Found them to be comfortable and nice snug fit, I have normal size width.
In terms of performance they offer more of a platform and feel stiffer than my previous North Wave Vertigos and are very light.
They are well made and I like the understated Italian styling, time will tell if they are a durable shoe but I imagine they will be from a reputable brand like Fizik, all in, would recommend.

The first thing you notice about these shoes is the box they come in! Makes them feel special before you've even handled them. The shoes themselves are beautifully made and very light. I've worn them 6 times in the past fortnight for about 425km including a 200km sportive. I've got quite wide feet with a normal arch and they felt a bit tight for width for the first couple of rides but being leather this has eased and is now not causing discomfort. Sizing seems to be on the small size with an EU43 being a UK 8.5 rather than a UK9 as with my older Specialized shoes. All shoes have a slightly different fit but those with wide feet will not find these generous in the width at their normal size.
Overall, very happy with my purchase. They look the business and feel great now that I've broken them in a bit.
Great shoes, have had loads of compliments and fit really nice too. Right foot used to get pins and needles on long rides with my old shoes but doesn't anymore. Great price on here also.
These are an excellent road shoe. They are well made, light and very comfortable. They are also extremely stiff, and compared to my old carbon-soled shimano shoes feel much better in terms of power transfer - the difference is very noticeable when standing up going uphill.
Really nice road shoes and a snip at the price at Merlin Cycles.
Look sort of retro, sole is quite shaped which suits me as I have a high instep.
Seems to be less venting than other top road shoes but haven't suffered hot feet yet, even in the warm weather we've been having.
One final point, really like the black toe as too often in light shoes you get tyre rub marks on the front!
In a word...excellent!
