These shoes are great. I replaced an old pair of 510 impacts and was looking for a lower profile shoe, and these fit the bill. I like the ease of the boa system, especially on muddier rides. They're super easy to put on and take off. They cinch down pretty even if you flex them around a bit as you tighten them. I don't expect them to have the longevity of standard laces, but they seem well made and are servicable/replacable, so I'm happy to trade that for the ease of use. The soles are crazy stiff. There was a slight pressure point at the top of the shoe near my ankle for the first couple of rides, but I think it is because I sized down about 1/2 size too much. Since being broken in, I haven't felt any pressure point at all. I would say they run true to size.
Great shoe! Good fit and true to size. I wear an 11 in running and sports shoe.
I ride trail but like a stiff shoe from my roadie days and though this has a more freeride look and feel it is plenty stiff for those punchy sections or other harder efforts, comfortable off the bike as well with good traction on hike-a-bike
