Svelte and roomy.
This has quickly become one of our staff favorite shoes. Call us to discuss comparable sizing, as these shoes tend to run a bit large (ie. you may need to go a 1/2 size smaller in the Fiziks to match your current shoe. Our staff can help you compare the Fiziks to Sidis, Shimanos, Giros, Scotts, and many other shoes.
I waited too long to give these shoes a try. Have been thinking about it for years, but just recently my friend Clive at Glory Cycles got me all excited about them, so I ordered a pair. I wear a 45 in most shoes (Shimano, Scott, Sidi, and Northwave). The 45 Fizik R1 fits me beautifully. I expected to be a 44.5 or smaller based on what others have said about the fit, but somehow, the 45 was spot on. It's a snug shoe, but not uncomfortable, at all. It's more like a nice fitting set of bibs. You know they are there, but they feel good. The toe box has a surprising amount of room, but I don't find my foot moving around in the R1B Uomo at all. Look for a longer review in our 3014 Blog, but the short and skinny is that this is a shoe that will make a lot of people very happy.
