DZR Ovis Shoe Review

from United Kingdom
I was after some Vans type shoes for short commuting/loafing around/having a spin round with the kids. Love my Vans, but theyre so flexy for riding in. Saw these and they seemed to fit the bill. After some umming and ahhing i ordered some.
Emailed the guys at Always Riding for some sizing guidance as shoe buying over the internet is always a bit risky.
Anyway, the email was answered in minutes, and the order was placed. On this, i'm a Euro 45 in most leisure and bike shoes. The exceptions for me are i size up to 46 in Shimano and Sidi. I was advised to order 45. These are perfect. Hope that helps others a little.
The shoes arrived next day. Really nice quality, really strong smell of quality, supple leather uppers. Look really nice on. Forefoot is nicely stiff (not overly), and rear seems to have more flex on walking. The SPD slot needs cutting out, which is perfect for me, as my intention is to use them with flatties or toe clips. There are some bolt on covers included for those who remove the SPD cover and later want to use them for flatties (i guess).
Cant't coment on any sort of longevity, but they seem really nicely made, so hope that's an indication of long term build quality.
In a nutshell very pleased.
Always Riding, yet again, providing a really good service all round. Others should take note.
