Quality and comfort

An excellent leather shoe, and not expensive!

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase
Early days

TR we these on in store and instantly felt comfortable. Done a few rides and have some discomfort in one foot. I am still adjusting the cleats to optimise the position so this should improve. Feel and look well made although the strap does get in the way a bit when tying the laces so far seem very well made very comfortable for short rides and bedding in longer rides. I think they will work out just fine

Excellent Value

These are genuine leather and so comfortable. They have plenty of width in the toe area and sorted out my foot pain. The sole is marginally more flexible than the carbon shoes they replaced and a little easier to walk in as a result. They are also relatively light. They don't have an annoying squeak on the pedals either. I am 100% pleased and would certainly recommend. Being leather I'm hoping they will get even more comfortable

A great pair of shoes

I agree they come up slightly larger than expected. I have had mine for almost a year and they are fantastic value for money shoe.

Very nice shoe let down by poor heel fit

This shoe comes up large. I bought EU size 44 (UK 9.5), and although I normally take a UK size 10 (EU 44.5) the shoe is a good fit with the exception of the heel hold. It is very loose at the heel so that walking in them leads to constant rubbing. I haven't tried pedalling in them, but suspect that this would also cause my heels to slip. For this reason I have returned the shoes. Apart from the heel fit issue., the shoe is really nice: soft quality leather upper, stiff sole for pedalling and enough flex at the toe to walk in. The laces and strap enabled me to achieve a snug fit, although I couldn't lock the heel down. My size 44 weighed in at 415g, which is somewhat heavier than many road shoes, but probably attributable to the shoe's robust construction. A shame I had to return them.

Quite a nice pair of shoes

Very nice pair of shoes, good quality leather (but time will tell) and quite comfortable 2 comment though if you are considering those * This is a road SPD shoes. As such the sole is quite hard (better transfer of power) but they are not as easy to walk in as a pair of shimano MTB shoes * Given the sole is quite hard, you need to be quite precise when engaging the cleats. If you are not, given the absense of rubber sole, you foot will slip. Overall the 2 points above will make them less forgiving than the typical shimano SPD shoes that decathlon has in inventory.

Excellent shoes, but sizing is large

These shoes are amazingly comfortable to wear. I have actually worn them for 10 hours off the bike. On the bike they are stiff enough to transfer the power through the pedals, but comfortable on long rides. The leather is breathable but sheds light rain. It is a little fiddly to do up the laces while holding the buckle strap out of the way, and the sizing is large. I am a 44 UK 9.5 and the size 43 fits Ms. The 44 was way too large for me. So overall great value shoes but don't buy them until you have tried them on to check sizing.

Nice to walk without damaging cleet

Top Schuh mit paar Abstrichen

Hab jetzt schon den zweiten Schuh. Habe ihn reklamiert, da die Stollen an der Ferse schnell kaputt gehen. Schränkt aber nicht die Nutzung ein. Hab mal paar neue schnallen bestellt, da einer zerbrochen ist. Im Sommer muss ich manchmal die letzte Raste nehmen, da ich einen schmalen/ kleinen Spann habe. Das ist der einzige Nachteil, schränkt mich aber nicht ein. Hab den Schuh bei Touren über 10h getragen und war zufrieden, hab mir eine andere Sohle rein gemacht und bin voll zufrieden. Fahr ihn jeden Tag im Sommer, wurde auch schon öfters nass und schlammig. Fette (Bienenwachs) ihn immer nach der Saison ein, da ich ihn nur bis 5grad Außentemperatur fahre. Leder is weiterhin geschmeidig sieht aus wie neu, auch nach 5000km. Empfehlung von mir is auf alle Fälle gegeben.

Nach ein paar Tagen eingerissen, Füße werden taub

Von der Größe her passen mir die Schuhe aber leider ist das Leder nach einigen Tagen vorne eingerissen und meine Füße werden beim Fahren trotz verschiedener Einstellmöglichkeiten taub. Ist die Einstellung zu locker ist der Schuh halt nicht mehr so fest… alles in allem ein schlechter Schuh für diesen doch recht hohen Preis.

Improvements to the shoes

Based on your feedback, we've modified the sole (see photo), by reinforcing the heel pads (longer and fuller) to ensure less wear.The central part of the shoe has also been improved by the addition of a pad to avoid slipping on the pedal.
