The Review

Good performer and very durable. Hyped as the preferred shoes for Pettachi though you've gotta perform like him to find merit in his shoe choice.

Anyway, it's supposed to be one of DMT's top of the line item that provides superstiff carbon soles.

Aside from that, not much innovation to compare to other shoes except the design and weight factors. Have quick-release ratchet and straps, have carbon sole( did I repeat?)lorica mesh fabric material, select leather etc......

This shoes are good for narrow feet. If have broad footies, please avoid for another brand and model. My foot is quite narrow without bunyons and still I get crimped on the small toe area....so there is indeed a hotspot here. Maybe they should use softer leather like the SIDI's?

Generally very good... very minimal pedal power wastage on this one..can feel superstiff ( I mean the sole not when you see the price).

Also there is a hard plastic wrap at the rear part of the shoes which adds as a protection to hitting short axled pedals while spinning. Methink this carapace helps on making the shoe stiff also... think only not really confirmed.

Oh yes, for poseurs, this rocks!...and the leather can easily clean with soap and water and does not age that fast, so this shoes will last you.

But be warned, not a budget shoe but worth every penny.....

But as when using single entry face pedals, you may scruff the shoe toe ends and spoil the leather...any shoes with a soft non-prtected ends will meet this fate.

Strengths
