This is the most I have ever spent on a pair of cycling shoes, I should have done it years ago.
I have always used skate style SPD shoes which work fine but these XC61 shoes blow them all away. I can't believe how different they feel and how much more power I can get down.
When I first tried them on I thought they were too tight, but my feet stayed comfortable and unlike my other shoes, I could still feel my toes after an hour!!
Highly recommend these.
Like my pevious shimano shoes, quality and fit is near perfect, compared with my xc50 these feel much stiffer when you pedal, there is plenty of room in the toe box as you press hard on the pedals for your toes to spread and I cant wait to try these again at the weekend.
Postage was faster than I expected, arriving next day, so one very happy customer.
