I was able to pick these shoes on an awesome sale for $150. I wear size 10.5 in sneakers and ordered 45 originally. I had to return and reorder size 44 which fit perfectly. BTD was great on the return. The shoe looks and feels awesome. I'm pretty happy with my purchase.
I've been looking at this shoe for, literally years, and waiting for my Pearl Izumis to wear out. When they finally did, I pulled the trigger, only to be disappointed.
1) Fiziks seem to run large--I was able to account for this and size down (44 Fiziks, where I fit a 45 in PI/Shimano). I got the math right and the shoes fit, length-wise.
2) These shows run narrow--again, no issue, i was expecting that and I have narrow feet. Win.
3) Holy, arch support--there's so much structure in the footbed/arch that i could not wear these. I have fairly flat feet and bending my foot around the arch was more than i could handle.
so, I sent them back and got a pair of Shimano RC-500s. (BikeTiresDirect was perfect here, they sent me shipping labels and the refund was processed with no issue.)
Takeaways: these certainly seem like good shoes. Two-way BOA dials, well built, light enough, aero-seeming. I felt like the value for money was going to be there, but they just didn't fit me.
If you have narrow-ish feet with normal-to-high arches, prepare to size down, but these should work for you. If you have wider feet or lower arches save yourself some time and return postage and look elsewhere.
These are my second pair of Fizik shoes and they are worth the money. Fits well, great material, very stylish...
The only this is that if you ride more than 80 miles, it starts to be little uncomfortable on the bottom of the sole.
