Steve Great overall fit even without moulding it, good amount of sole stiffness as well.
Ms Evans I’m a size 4 UK and I bought a 37.5. So far so good.
C P Comfortable. A size 38.5 fits a bit bigger than my 38.5 runners, but not a deal breaker. They feel very high quality and should last for a long time.
Mr Charnock These are the best shoes I have worn, so good I bought a second pair from Merlin at a fantastic price
Mrs Hague My first pair of road shoes and they feel like slippers - really happy with them
Mr kongjun Boa dial cleats are the best touring shoes. It's the best floor strength and the best foot comfort. It's the best price/performance.
Mr Nautsch Surprisingly comfortable. Do not order up in size. I wear 44/45 on the street 11 to 11.5 and the 45.5 are almost too large. Great sole stiffness.
Mr Berry Followed the Shimano size chart, the shoes fitted perfectly, used them on a 3hr ride straight out of the box, they proved to be very comfortable, carbon sole was stiff, and felt good on the climbs. I wanted a shoe with the strap and buckle rather than the Boa system, and these worked great......pb
Mr Jonckheere Comfortable shoes. A lot of space around the toes area. Stiff sole.
Hilly Delivery & tracking were as described and on time. The shoes are great straight out of the box, I haven't bothered with the heat molding as they fit really well, only adjustment made was moving the buckle position which is a good option for my feet. Immediately noticed how stiff they were with the carbon soles and definitely an increase in power transfer compared to my old shoes. For the price these are excellent, very comfortable and feel like race shoes but with some added comfort. Ventilation is pretty good so far, but I haven't had them out on a 30+ degree day yet as its winter. Happy customer and highly reccomend these over spending double on the next level race shoes which wouldn't be much different at all
Lloney Cleat setup easy. Comfortable. And though not something I usually pay attention to, quite stylish I must say. Good VFM.
Luvly Comfortable shoe. The shape around the toes suits me pretty well. The ventilation into the toes seems improved too. Recommended
Mr Boivin I love this shoe! I am replacing my specialized s-works shoe and this one has a better and more comfortable fit. I haven't even had it heat molded yet. The buckle and heel cut fit snug with no movement even when I pull up on the pedal. I also have enough room to move my toes, maybe that won`t be so much after it is molded. The shoe fits a bit large. I usually wear 42.5 or 43 but this 42 is not tight. The shoe is a head turner in bright white. So white that my pale legs look tan.
Mark James A great pair of light and comfortable shoes and good value at this price. My only reservation is they arent very ventilated so not ideal for hotter climates. Not usually an issue in the UK though.
Mr Dietz Wonderful, adjustable, comfortable, stiff
RK Comfortable, feels essentially identical to other top end Shimano shoes like R-321. Chose this one over that for the simple understated style.
