I was told by a representative of the company to buy the same size RC Hellion riding shoes as I wear for my athletic shoes, but I had to send the first pair of Hellions back and get a half size larger and they seem to fit good. The soles (bottoms) are holding up pretty well but I only have about six hours of ride time on them as of this review but they grip my pedals very well. They have a very firm sole (shank?) and required some break in but after that they feel pretty good. I would definitely buy another set when these wear out, A++
I bought the Hellions as my third pair of riding shoes, because I wanted to compare them to my FiveTen Freerider Pros. So far I am very impressed. The stiffness and grip of the sole is exceptional, and the fit isit true to size. They are breathable, have good support and the laces are easy to tie and strong. I think these are unbeatable at the price point, especially compared to my Freerider Pros which were $30 more.
Solid, stable shoe, works well with my Crampons. Noticed more efficient climbing with less effort and I ride an aluminum SC Bronson. Kudos!
Like the brand so far. Fit is definitely a 1/2 size smaller then five tens, but support and feel are nice. Grip is solid and looks like a well built shoe. Thumbs up for now.....
Love the feel and grip, dont look like a bozo getting a beer after a ride.
