Sheldon Haven’t used these on a ride yet, but straight out of box, good first impressions. Had them on walking around house and they are very comfortable. I have wide feet, so I bought a wide and I sized up with the intention of wearing heavy socks. I’m in Canada, so I intend to use these at temperatures ranging from -5 to 15 degrees Celsius. Currently weather is around the zero mark, and will be using these this week. They are heavier than I anticipated, but that’s a small factor that I’m concerned about. Very impressed with the ease of lacing system and they seem very well constructed. I will review again once I’ve taken a few rides.
Mr evans excellent shoe and superb fit for a wider foot , price very good and the boa closing ok to understand and use after a few attempts , delivery was awesome ,
Take.I いつもNWは40サイズでジャストですが、この靴は少し幅が狭い気がします。おそらくアッパーの素材に伸縮性が無いからかもしれません。あと踵の上の立ち上がりが他の靴より高く歩行すると当たって痛くなってきました。肝心の暖かさですが、風が入ってこないので多少マシというくらいです。足首までのraptor GTXも使ってますが暖かさは流石に叶わない印象。 一度この靴でズップリヌタヌタの泥に突っ込んで仕舞いましたが全く水は入ってこなかったのは良かったです。それでも蒸れることは無いです。すごく安く買えたので満足。
Michael Excellent shoe and helps keep my feet warm in the cold weather, sized up 1 size and that was perfect. Fast delivery from Europe to USA. Thanks Merlin
Mr son This product is great for very cold winter use. The shoe finish is really good. It's about sweating my feet. I bought really well. Highly recommend to friends ^^
David Excellent shoe - well made and do the job perfectly. Highly recommended.
Ewan No more wet feet or over shoes needed, sizing is same as Sidi. 10 stars
Mr Malan Fits a little large, perfect for a thick pair of socks for these winter shoes. The ratchet mechanism isn't as good as a Boa, and it takes a long time to unratchet in particular. The trick is to loosen it up a little, then unhook the string off the guide to open the shoe up completely to put them on or take them off.
Mr Hodgson The Raptor TH is an almost unique product, a winter SPD shoe rather than a boot, don't like the insulation round the ankle that many winter boots possess, surely more manufacturers should produce a similar product for the UK market where the highly ventilated shoes that are prevalent on the market are often the last thing needed. I ordered a size 41, which the size chart indicated would fit me, I am normally a UK7, and I confirm they fit. So far I have worn them with a single pair of socks in temperatures down to about 6 degrees and I can confirm they remain warm so very happy with these shoes to date. At the time of purchase Merlin had the best price for a shoe actually in stock in the UK and the free delivery was within 2 days.
Andrew Should be warm enough for most of my winter riding without needing to wear boots. Looking forward to using them properly but great so far.
