These are great shoes but after 6 months of riding they remain as uncomfortable as they started out. I'm sure these may be great for some but unfortunately not for me. Especially considering the price these were not worth the investment I'll look at going back to Shimano shoes which are much more comfortable. Too bad you can honestly testing riding shoes without putting in the miles or I would have been able to save myself the expense and pain.
These are the most comfortable cycling shoes I've ever owned. I no longer have foot pain while riding, no hot spots or numbness. They are extremely comfortable right out of the box!
