Awesome shoes 5
Size comment: "True to size"
After much research for some clipless shoes that I could use with the 'shopping bike' that I'm currently building (Mixte 531 frame, carbon fork, compact groupset etc) I stumbled across the DZR range. Perfect. Then I found www.alwaysriding.com - love your website and your products by the way & have Twittered and FB'd you to the max and the boot/shoe that I wanted, in stock.
I ordered and they came unbelievably quickly - great service & thank you. It took less than 10 minutes to get the cleats fitted & I tried them out on my Mercian single-speed. Awesome is all I can say.
The fit is great, love the stretchy laces. The sole is bouncy and stiff enough.
I rode up a few hills locally to put them through their paces and the power transfer is great. I had one guy on a bike think he could get past me - haha - no chance, just put the power on and away I went - the shoes performed really well. I like that there is plenty of scope for cleat adjustment too if closer to mid-sole is your thing.
To complete the test, a wander round the local shops - walking is no different to normal shoes (same as my Spring Court baseball boots), the soles and nice and grippy and no clickety-clack of the Shimano spd's that I get with some of my other spd cycling shoes (shopping not an option in my road shoes!! Hehe).
I am really, really, really, pleased with these shoes. They are very comfortable, look great and perform like cycling shoes on the bike and normal shoes off the bike. Also, they are seriously cool.
