These fit perfectly as described and are perfect for riding home from Manhattan to Brooklyn (about 1 hour ride). It keeps my nicer work clothes from getting sweaty.

I bought these shorts because I love the option of not having a form fitting spandex bike short! The shorts themselves are still pretty tight to the body but nearly like spandex. There is an inner padded lining that you can unsnap for washing. Shorts probably hit mid-thigh in length. Overall happy though I thought the padding was just so-so (no amount of padding will be enough ever - haha!).

I have been wearing Aasics for years and then tried a pair of Brooks. I was most unhappy with the construction of the Brooks, so I decided to look in to a different brand for a neutral walker/runner type of shoe. I am so happy that I have found this great shoe! It was comfortable from the get go, supportive, comfortable and my feet hit the ground flat with each step. I highly recommend this shoe.

These shorts are cute but run really small, the outer layer was just as snug as the inner short - so size up unless that's the look you're going for!

Warning! If you have narrow feet the laces will be too long to tuck in as shown. I actually got my lace caught in the pedal and fell when I couldn't get my foot off the pedal. I would rethink getting this shoe.

Super cute shoes! I'm usually a 9 and I ordered a 41.5 (says they're a 9.5 and change) based on a review from another customer, and they fit great. A little snug but I assume cycling shoes are supposed to be fitted. Husband had no issues putting the cleats on that I bought with them.

I have been a fan of the Trail N2s and wanted to go to a lower drop, so I tried the Trail N1s. They are significantly narrower than the N2s and too tight in the width. Even with ordering a half size larger than my usual running shoe size. Seems like Pearl Izumi would want to attract the same user base for the N2s as the N1s but the N1s are for people with narrow feet or who prefer a narrower shoe and not a wide toe box.

This is my first pair of tri/cycling shoes. I am very happy with them, the material is durable and light very comfortable the straps are quick access, open on top for breathing on those hot days. This is a great pair of shoes at a good price that is durable. Nothing fancy just very reliable. I did not have a problem finding cleats that would fit. They are awesome!

These shorts look cute, love the style. Like most bike shorts, they run small. Only real complaint is that the chamois undies are made of a fairly scratchy mesh and the pad isn't the most comfortable I've ever had.

These are very light weight, and do fit very true to size. The color is great. These feel like good easy-going sneakers, but not sure if they can withstand a heavy workout.

This is my second pair of Pearl Ems and I absolutely love them! I feel this is a good hybrid shoe that can be used on a variety of surfaces. Support and grip of this shoe are great and they are surprisingly durable. These are my shoes of choice for running Tough Mudders. Honestly I beat the hell out of these shoes and they have never let me down.

I am a nurse and on my feet 10 hours a day. My lower back does not hurt any more since I have been wearing these shoes. They are great. I am going to buy another pair of these.

These seemed like great pants, but I had a real issue with the fit. I am a curvy gal, and usually wear an XL. The XL was HUGE. I exchanged for the L, which was way too small. Weird. If you can get the right fit, they are a great fabric.

My review is long overdue. I purchased these shoes in September because my prior pair, Pearl Izumi W's X-Alp Seek V, became missing at the gym. I considered getting the same pair because I really liked them but I tried these too and I liked them even better! My first pair of cycling shoes were the traditional, really hard-sided kind from Shimano. But my feet were always uncomfortable and too hot while riding and sore afterwards so I replaced them with the 'tennis shoe' type. The Drift III are so comfortable because they have a lot of mesh on the upper so this makes them flexible and breathable. Unlike the other reviewer, I don't mind the way the laces fasten and I find I can pull them tighter than any prior pair. Once you learn how to push the button down to hold it tight or push it up to loosen, it's fast and easy to get them on and off. There is a hook to attach to the top of the laces and I've never had any issue with the laces getting stuck in the chain riding inside or out. They have good arch support on their own but I use a specialized insole. I needed a 41 in the Seek but 40 in these because they fit better due to the mesh. I am usually a 7.5 or 8 in most shoes but always an 8.5 in my running shoes - Asics Nimbus.

I love this shoe! I daily walk three miles on rough and irregular terrain, and these shoes provide lateral support to keep my feet from slipping over the edge of the sole on hilly ridges. They also have great arch support, and after three miles my knees do not hurt; other shoes are not as good in this arena. Incredibly lightweight, too. Had to buy a half size larger than usual for a good fit. Now, if they only last given rough wear, I will never buy any other brand.

Really liked the style of the shoe, but it runs a little narrow in the toe box, and is all around a pretty narrow shoe. I have a rather narrow foot, and never usually encounter this problem.

Bought for spin class to replace 3 year old pearl Izumi, they fit exactly the same I buy a 41 in pearl Izumi bike shoes and I am a true 8 1/2 in regular shoes. So they run a size small. My foot is on the more narrow side and these fit perfectly.

I was skeptical about purchasing a pair of cycling shoes online without trying them on. However, the sales associate who helped me over the phone was very nice and helpful and assured me that if they didn't fit I could return or exchange them with no hassle. I tried them on when they arrived and they fit nicely. They were a little snug, but I knew like with any sneaker they would give after using them a few times, and they did. They are very comfortable and a good selection. I highly recommend them!

I am very happy with these shoes. They fit the same as my previous Pearl Izumi's except these are a little wider which I like.
