I was a bit concerned about the sizing so did my research about PI cycle shoes first and these fit perfectly. Adequate for my needs!

It’s always hard purchasing Euro sizes. I wear 9-9.5. I bought 42. They are pretty big. Probably more like a 10 or even 10.5. I honestly don’t think I can wear a 41 though. I’d rather have a little room and add extra insoles to make it tighter. For now, they are fine as is. Really great indoor cycling shoes! Comfy, and cute.

Super cute! I usually 8.5/9 so when the 40.5/8.77 came back into stock I took a chance but the other reviews that say these run small are right on, maybe a half to 3/4 size smaller than marked. I’m sending these back but hoping the next size up will become available again.

I read reviews saying to get a size 43 if you are usually size 8.5 (39) - because of this I ordered them much too big! I am usually 8.5/39, but in these cycling shoes, a 40 works. No need to get a huge size

These shoes are meant for mountain biking, but they are stiff enough to use on an indoor cycle as well. I wear a size 6 1/2 to 7. I ordered a 7 and it fits a bit snug in one shoe as my feet aren't exactly the same size. I will keep them though because the next size up (there are no half sizes) will be too big and it is better for cycle shoes to fit snug. The twist tightener is the best. It is easy to loosen and tighten the shoe without the inconvenience of laces or velcro. If you use cleats, they are recessed which make it easy to walk from room to room without scuffing the floor. They use SPD cleats only.

I like this cycling shoe for my peloton bike - I don’t have a lot to compare to, but these feel like a pretty basic pair and the color is fun!

Nice shoe for my Peloton. They run a little bit on the smaller side. Get one size bigger and you'll be good. A bit narrow, hopefully they stretch a little. Attention Zappos I would like to schedule a session in the nap room and relax with the fish.??

Fit is small, but once I got the right size they are very comfortable. Work great with the Pelaton. I’m normally a 9 and 41 in cycling shoes - had to get 41.5 in these.

Ordered the white, it was a pleasant surprise that the zipper is also white (not a black zipper as shown on the model). I'm a size S/4 for most clothes, but got a medium in this because I wanted to use it for general sun protection, not for aerodynamic biking. Overall, I liked the fit (and was really glad that the sleeves were long enough, despite no thumbholes, for my disproportionately long arms at 5'8"), but returned due to the tugging/puckering at the armpits when it was zipped up -- and I don't have a large chest! 34B on good days. You can see the puckering a bit in the pictures, regardless of color.

Love these shoes. I take an indoor spin class 5 days a week and needed to upgrade my shoes. These were recommended by my studio and they are great. Super comfortable and not too narrow like a lot of cycle shoes. So happy with my purchase and my rides have been a lot better.

I haven't actually worn these spinning yet. But I tried on at least 8 other pairs and these were by far the most comfortable. I was told cycle shoes need to be comfortable from the start and that was really the most important thing. Oddly, Zappos lists these as a 42 EU and 9.5 US, but on the box it says it's a US 10 and 42 EU. I wear a size 10 in most street shoes, and sometimes size up for athletic shoes like running shoes, hiking boots, etc. These fit just about perfectly length-wise, with just a smidge of room at the end of the shoe for my big toe. But my toes had lots of space to wiggle around and with the straps tightened, my feet will hopefully stay in place and won't slide forward at all. I also tried all the shoes on at the end of the day when my feet were their largest. I should probably take a ride or two in these before I make certain that they're for me, but based on the others I tried, I liked these the most.

It does feel true to size but very snug. I bought a 38 and I’m a US7. A little tight but that’s not a bad thing for cycling shoes. Plus they look SO PRETTY AND STYLISH ??

The shoe is super cute but order 2 sizes up. Runs very small. Also the top part of the shoe dug into the top of my foot. Very stiff. I returned them. I bought them to ride my Peloton bike- I ended up ordering Peloton shoes, which are very comfortable!

Tried these on in two different sizes and the velcro straps were weirdly way too short. I've had Pearl Izumi velcro cycling shoes for years and the velcro fit just fine. Couldn't strap them down over my feet. (My feet are on the average to wider side, but I can usually wear both regular or wide shoes.)

Super nice shoe, but runs much smaller than stated. Had to order 2 sizes up than what I normally wear. The thick strap is a little cumbersome, but overall love the shoe.

The size of these shoes were true to my expectations. I have narrow feet with a low arch and so I need to buy shoes where my big toe is close but not touching the end of the shoe. The length was perfect. And the width and room inside the shoe was therefore perfect. So the size of this shoe is spot on.

My real shoe size is 9.5 D although sometimes I get a little wider. The 44 fits me perfectly. The shoes are very sturdy with good support. Fairly stiff soles, but that's what I wanted and not overly so. A little heavy, but I don't care about weight. I've just started using an exercise bike, so these are my first pair of cycling shoes. I've used them a couple of times and I'm very satisfied.
