To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Had these shoes for 2.5 years now and used nearly every day of those with no issues until recently where one of the buckles has broken. Not the shoes fault per se as I’ve been down a couple of times on said buckle. Those reviews string poor fit and/or won’t work with SPD SL cleats are false as mine fit perfectly and mounted the SPD’s no issue with no adapter. Definitely recommend as a first set/spare set of road shoes.
Fit is a little loose on the width of the 9.5, but close enough. So far so good on function. These are NOT compatible as-is with 2 bolt SPD cleats, even though the slots are built into the sole. However, I purchased a separate adapter that can be inserted under the insole to allow regular SPD cleats to be used.
I’ve learned for me a slightly larger shoe size works better. As a female women’s cycle shoes also tend to fit narrower and doesn’t leave room for the expansion of the foot as you press down on the pedal which puts stress on the arches of the foot, these are perfect so far.
Also they tighten really well so that my ankles aren’t rotating too much (I have a pair of botranger and my ankles did not feel any support at all. Although it’s the type with the wire tighteners)
One note, They don’t come with the clips so you have to buy them.
First time indoor bike rider here...very happy with my decision! I was looking for a nice, solid pair of cycling shoes that would be compatible with an indoor bike and these ended up being perfect! The only downside here is the shipping — it took quite some time to make it across the works to the East Coast! If you need shoes immediately, maybe not your best choice — but if you can be patient, are looking for some style and versatility, and can wait a few weeks — then I highly recommend trying these! I am typically a 10.5 in men’s shoes and these fit just as expected.
I was a little nervous buying these shoes because they are my first set of cycling shoes but I ordered them anyway. I am very pleased! They are true to size and look awesome. They fit the delta cleats perfectly, too. I will always buy this brand!
I bought a few Santic cycling accessories in the past. The quality is very good. These cycling shoes are not an exception. In fact, it is better than what I expected. Thanks for its breathable design. After long hours of ride on my stationary bike, my socks are still very dry.
