The Pearl Izumi Men's Elite Road Shoe v5 draws inspiration from their P.R.O. Leader Shoe, delivering optimal power transfer while providing a foot-conforming fit. Utilizing their Unibody Construction, the Elite Road v5's do away with the traditional lasting board, bringing the shoe's stack height down to just 5mm for optimal power transfer.
The Elite Road v5 features Pearl Izumi's stiffest sole, the Carbon Power Plate, ensuring that every watt makes it to the tarmac, whether it's a bunch sprint or a KOM attempt. With a seamless 3-layer composite upper, the shoes wrap around the foot for a comfortable, supportive fit, complete with plenty of airy mesh ventilation ports for hot summer riding. Perhaps even more compelling than the ultra-stiff Carbon Power Plate sole and glove-like fit, the Elite Road v5 utilizes the Boa IP1 dial for an ultra-precise fit that will exceed even the most exact preferences. With a lower forefoot strap, the combination creates a bi-directional closure, creating a semi-custom fit. Compatible with three-bolt road cleats.

Great shoe for a great price
I bought this shoe as an upgrade from a Shimano MTB shoe. The shoe fits true to size to almost a little bigger. I was able to downsize from 12 to 11.5. Granted, this meant my toes were a touching the end of the toe box but they expanded after break-in. Soles are stiff, but then again, coming from an MTB shoe, anything will seem stiff. The BOA system is precise and offers micro-adjustments that Velcro straps cant. I am very pleased with the shoe and can tell my pedaling efficiency has increased. Lastly, aesthetic-wise, these are fantastic and quality is superb.
