Really enjoying these shoes. The fit is exactly what I expected and I'm getting a kick out of the color. The quality is excellent so sorry Pearl Izumi, looks like it will be a very long time before I'll need another pair. Highly recommend.

These fit very nice & work well for indoor spinning classes. They are comfy, which is so vital to a good workout. I bought a size 8. I normally wear 7 1/2 - 8 in workout shoes, but the majority of cycle shoes seem to run on the slightly smaller size. You definitely don't want your toe at the very end, since cycle can drive your toes down. I also chose this style over others that were much more stiff, especially in the tongue. These had some give & felt good right out of the box. They are expensive, but I don't plan on them wearing out, since I only wear them for classes. Oh, & you'll need to buy cleats, not a big deal. I purchased standard Shimano cleats that were not quick release, since I only use the shoes indoors.

The third time is the charm! Had to return the first ones, Giro, because they were labeled 37 and I was told they were 5.5, wrong, they were too big. I really liked them and they had another size 5. The second pair, the right foot, platform was broken, they squeaked as I pedaled. And finally...this pair, more expensive, but I am extremely happy, true to size, width perfect, great arch and easy to put on and loosen when needed, i.e. when riding. I'm not unhappy with the color either, cute. Love them and although they were a little pricey, worth it. Thank Zappos, always great doing business with you!

I love these shoes! They are the most comfortable and light weight shoes that I have had. I have no complaints, just be sure to order one full size larger than you normally wear.

I wear a size 9.5 and purchased the 43. My toe on my left foot slightly touches the end of the shoe, not very comfortable to walk in but for indoor cycling it is okay. Wish they had a size 44, I would have purchased a small men's shoe but I have a narrow width and these are perfect in the width.

These shorts saved my tush! I enrolled in a spinning class and left the first session in extreme discomfort (wearing a pair of yoga pants). The instructor recommended I purchase padded cycling shorts, and it's made a world of difference. The padding on these shorts is thick but doesn't feel heavy, and it really comforts and protects your sit bones. There's also an elastic band around the legs (inside the shorts) that keeps them in place without tugging at your skin. If you ride a bicycle (of any kind), do your tush a favor and pick up a pair of these. You'll be so happy you did.

Very comfortable shoe. It works like a biking shoe in that it's stiff, but it's not bad for walking around as well. It has good grip for when you have to hike your bike up the steep parts.

I have these shoes for about 1 year now, and use them only for indoor cycling classes (2-3/week). The clips are great and they never unlocked from the bike (as I've seen happening to other people with other shoes during classes, specially on sprints). They made my feet go numb during the first couple of times of use, but maybe it was my fault. After that, they've been great: comfortable and sturdy. These are one of the cutest cycling shoes I've ever seen, and without the annoying and funky walk you get when using the regular road biking shoes. They DO run about TWO full sizes smaller. I'm a size 7.5, 8 for running shoes and mine are size 40 (which, according to their chart would be actually a size 10).

I finally bought proper cycling shoes after about 3 years of spin classes. These are great! They really took my training to the next level - I didn't realize what I was missing. I have Wide feet, so I was sure these would not work. But because of the velcro, I can wear these comfortably - so these are definitely good if you have wide feet! I usually wear a 9 and the Pearl Izumi site recommended a half size larger, but Zappos did not carry it - my toes are pretty close to the edge, so if you can get a half size larger. But I highly recommend these for spinning (with clips).

I trail run appx 35 miles per week. I am a moderate underpronator, and these shoes do a fantastic job of stabilizing that. My plantar fac-itty-isis has cleared up completely and my feet feel great even after long runs. By far the best trail running shoes Ive ever had. Almost ready for my 3rd pair.

These are beautiful but run super small! I am 5'4" and 110 lbs -- normally wear a small to medium in Pearl Izumi -- and the large are tight, so tight that the compression bothered my legs the entire time I had them on. At the same time, the pad is comfortable but Wide -- probably as wide as you would find in a "normal" size large -- as a result, I had rub marks on my legs after only an hour. On a side note, I also got a pair of Symphony shorts to wear in spin class -- as with one of the other reviews here, the quality is terrible -- fabric shredded on one of the legs after two classes. What's up with this, Pearl?

The pair hurts after a short period of time, so there is no support at all. Shoes got stinky fast made from cheap fabric/rubber that no matter what you do the smell won't go away. Considering the price I paid...

This is a brand I had never tried before but came up when I looked for shoes for people that have pronation. The risk free trial Zappos offers made it easy to try these out. I walk 3-5 times a week usually 5 miles each time. I have had no problem wearing this shoe with blisters. It would be nice if it had a bit more cushion in the ball of the foot. But other than that it is a great shoe. I have worn Asics, New Balance in the past as a walking shoe and this one beats them hands down for me.

Great shoes! I need extra support for flat feet/pronating and I get it from these shoes. I wear a women's size 10 in Asics walking shoes and I got size 42. They fit great. I don't use the clips so I can't comment on that. Also I love the pocket in the tongue to tuck your laces when riding. They don't look as goofy as most cycling shoes - also a plus.

As others have mentioned, these offer a good balance between performance and support. No break in required. Light and comfortable. I have fairly narrow feet and these feel perfect, so people with wide feet might want to consider a 1/2 up.

Initially I really enjoyed the e-motion N2 series of trail shoes. I went through 5 pairs of the light green units probably made in 2013. I feel like I have not been able to adapt to the orange and aqua colored units now. For me and the aqua colored units, it feels like the micro arch support has slightly shifted forward - and it's actually uncomfortable on my arch. Toe box flex, wide toe box, awesome smooth rockered design and no heel irritation are all pluses. The arch feels goofed however. Could be mental on my part. I feel myself using the Hoka Hauka more and more now. Myself: 155lbs, run hilly trails with steep climbs 5 days a week, 1 - 1.5 hours per run, neutral landing, prefer cushioned trail shoes. Longest day in N2 shoe = 14 hours.

My shoe size is 10, knew I should get 10 1/2, but gambled on 10s and their great with light socks! (If you wear 10, play it safe with 10 1/2). I Ride a 2014 Cannondale 29 Tail SS, w/ Crank bros Candy pedals in Florida 90+ degree heat on mountain bike courses with fast friends. These shoes are perfect, wide mesh, COOL, lighter than skate-type. ?? Perfect, just what I was after!

These are nice looking shoes, but although I thought they were wide enough in the toe box they proved not to be. In fact they gave me pinch calluses on one foot. I like the minimalist style and feel, but I will have to pass them on to my sister who does not have bunions and try another brand.

These are the best trail runners I've found for over pronators. They actually have enough stability to prevent mild to moderate over pronation, unlike most trail running shoes that are marketed as stability shoes. They give a good "spring" to every step too. I'm on my fourth pair of these and I've been able to get over 200 miles per pair with no discomfort whatsoever. I hope PI never quits making these! The only thing I don't like is the color scheme. I really wish they would tone them down some.

Really like the fit of these shorts, but am unhappy with quality. Within the first hour of wear, the leg band ripped and separated from the spandex on the leg.
