The adage you get what you pay for holds true with this shoe! It may be a little pricey, but this has been a great shoe for my 18-mile (one way) commutes in the wet and cold Portland winters. Thanks to the BikeTiresDirect sales staff for your kind advice when I was trying out different winter shoes (e.g., Mavic, Giro and Sidi).
I typically wear a size 44 road shoe (Sidi Megas) or mountain shoe (Shimano). I bought this size one size larger to accomodate a wool sock. I sometime pair it up with another windstopper sock during windy days. I recommend that you get one to two size larger to accomodate one or two extra layers of socks.
The shoe is very well made and very comfortable even with my wide feet profile. My winter commutes are in 30 to 40 degree weather and it is not necessary to put on an outer shoe cover layer. The shoe is very soft and I have no encountered any feet numbness or hot spots. The four velcro straps and Goretex layer create a great seal against any wind or water instrusion. The dirt and mud can be easily wiped off after each ride with a wet towel.
This is a great bang for the buck! Plus you cannot go wrong with an additional 10% credit back from BikeTiresDirect as a returning VIP buyer.
Thank you for your feedback.
