I bought these for a trail shoe but instead they are gonna be my bike park shoes. Heavy and beefier than my 2fos I was using for park before. Best part is they have some actual ankle support/protection which I have never before had with a clip shoe. Comes up nice and high on this inside and velcro strap locks in the support.
Would prefer a bit more substantial insole, only downside.
Velcro strap is too long, had to trim mine down but I am assuming its cause they are using the same length strap across all sizes, I dunno for certain.
these shoes are tanks! I love the high collar around the ankle, the deep heel pocket cradles my Achilles perfectly. The toe box is a bit wider than average, and my feet felt nice and snug at the mid-foot. Honestly, I put them on and didn't think about them until I took them off. No pain, no tingles, no hot spots.
Two gripes with this shoe: first the sole is burley and wide, to the point of occasionally bumping into the crank arm when unclipping; second the cleat pocket is very shallow, and makes certain pedals not work. I swapped over to crank bros specifically for their shorter cleat and it still barely mated up to the pedal correctly. I'd love to see the v2 deepen the cleat pocket by about 3-5mm. Side note: I'd also love a trail focused shoe with the transitions fit and shank, but a lighter build and more aggressive tread on the sole.
This is the easiest clip in I've ever had on a shoe, and they fit my feet perfectly for a long day split between trail and park.
