What shoes? That's how they fell!

    These are by far the most confortable shoes (of any type) that I have ever worn! When I get these on, and on my cycle, I forget about my feet and shoes. And for someone with feet problems, this is a real blessing! Only had them for 18 mmonths or so, so I hope they wear well!

    Not the same shoe as its mtb equivalent.

    By Scott007

    from Edinburg, TX

    About Me

    Comments:

    I bought this pair since I've had the mtb comp for several years. It fits the same, but the covering is not durable at all. I've washed my mtb shoes with all types of cleaners and soaps with water, but these road comps got grungy after being caught out in the rain on one of my rides. The color started coming off on the towel as I wiped them down and now there are parts of the shoe that look different than the rest. I think the pearly paint stripped off with the water and left sticky spots that attract dirt.

    I wanted to try s-works by the first time, but Comp gives me the same weight, stiffness and comfort. Strongly recommended

    Think twice about Dial Closure system

    By Davethefirst

    from Texas

    About Me

    Comments:

    This shoe is well-made and looks good. No issues there. The issue I have with mine is comfort and adjustability. I find the dial closure is like a "one size fits all" deal# It's simple and easy to use, but it doesn't provide me with a snug fit like the 3-strap Velcro shoes# With the 3-strap system, you can choose the tightness at 3 points on your foot# This shoe has 1 strap + 1 dial = only 2 points of tightening. For me, this is an issue ... I just can't get it right. It's either too tight or too loose. I'm dumping these shoes after a few weeks and going back to the 3-velcro strap shoes for more comfort ...

    Great Value for Price

    By Hunter22

    from Salt Lake City, UT

    About Me

    Comments:

    I have had this shoe for over a year now, and I love it. The easy of use and durability has made this my favorite shoe by far. I have tried other brands and spent a pretty penny on some good shoes but this shoe does everything I need and I didn't have to break the bank. I would recommend this for the beginner as well as the seasoned veteran. Overall Great Shoe.

    BOA System came unglued after 2nd Use

    By cannonspecialized

    from Missouri

    About Me

    Comments:

    The shoe looks cool, but overall I was not satisfied. The BOA system came unglued preventing the shoes to ever stay tight. Luckily my Specialized dealer was honest and returned my shoes with a full refund. Want a Specialized Shoe? Check out the ones with the ratchet, I love my Specialized Elite Road Shoe.

      Comments:

      I found the shoe incredibly comfortable, I got it on sale so it was a good entry level for me. I had to purchase a different insole, the one the shoes come with hurt my feet REAL bad, They seem to be designed for super flat-footed people.

        i ride about 125 miles a week, tried a pair of shimano shoes, had foot burn after six miles, got smart and bought these shoes, no foot burn at all, just finished a century ride, had pure comfort the whole ride, no burn, numbness or anything, i think specialized puts way more thought into there products than most co., fit is right on, toe box is perfect with good space, can't comment on durability yet, have to wait and see.

        Comments:

        To start with, I'm a big fan of all things Specialized, including the Comp Mtn Shoe.I ride the Comp Road shoes about 100 miles a week; got them at the end of January (2010) and currently have about 500 miles on them. After about 300 miles I started to notice the insole (not the insert, which is great) felt like it was depressing under the ball of my left foot. Sure enough, under inspection the cleat plates are super-exposed w/minimal surrounding padding. This explained why I was bruising my forefoot whenever I got out of the saddle for a hard effort.A couple shops have looked at them and said to put some extra padding in there, but now my foot falls asleep after 45 minutes of riding. Not sure what to do.I know they're not the top of the line, but for[$], this shouldn't be an issue.Also, use the Euro size rather than the US # when trying them on.

        Comments:

        I've only put about 200 miles on these shoes. I have no complaints. I think they were just fine. They are very well ventilated. (Which has backfired on me in the winter, my feet have been getting really cold). One of the reasons i got these shoes is because they were carbon and under $200. I just can't jsutify spending $300-$400 on shoes. Iv'e only owned two pairs of road shoes so i can't compare too much. But i have no complaints of these shoes other than in the winter time it can get cold.
