I have been riding for many years, raced and train long hours and these shoes are without a doubt the most comfortable I have ever had. I am so happy with everything about these. The closures have the fit custom to my feet on any given day. the insoles are solid and don't cause any numbness or hot spots. The venting is GREAT and here in California we have some HOT days yet my feet stay cool and comfortable. My next pair of shoes will be another pair of these.
