These are great. I good solid spd road shoe that you can easily walk around the shops in as well. Velcro top straps, nice and stiff, comfy and breathable. I bought them because they were the only walkable roadshoe I could find available in a size 13 UK. The only downside is that the upper mess panels leak water in the rain...well they are designed for breathabilty so...I solve this with a pair of Nike neoprene overshoes in the wet. I did put a strip of black gaffer tape on the insides across the cleat holes to aid waterproofing. I have worn these shoes for nearly 4000 miles and the cleats havent let me down once.
