These are built like their ancestors of the 70s and before, you fit skin tight, they will mold to foot, once unboxed you wear them for hour or two, like we racers did back in the day. If memory serves me right, the originals had wood soles so you can nail in the cleats, I was very happy that they came with three hole cleats for rat-trap pedals (that saved me $30 from buying a set). I purchased them for my L'Eroica and Tweed vintage bike rides. One thing I like about laces, is you can adjust across the length of your foot. Only dislike, wish the upper lace holes were reinforced with nylon, I think my old shoes the upper holes would wear..but I will not be wearing these but couple times a month, riding my vintage bike.
Good shoes well made
These shoes are for cycling and for that purpose, they are excellent!
Stylish, narrow, and the sizing is a little small-- the first time this has happen with shoes made in Europe.
Beautiful shoes. Quite narrow. But the real kicker was that I was not comfortable with the soles as providing enough skid resistance where needed in order to come to a quick stop should you have to dismount.
Have a fat foot, too narrow for me......love the shoe though!!!!
