Pretty straight forward pair of cycling shorts. Too early to tell about durability. They ride well and do their job.

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.

The version before this one was perfect in my opinon. For this version the manufacturer changed the velcro tab closest to the ankle to not be able to come all the way out of the grommet and if you have a regular or high instep the design does not have ample velcro hook on this tab to be able to close the shoe well. The shoes are still very stiff after 15 rides.

I think the sizing is pretty good. I wear 43.5 or 44 in all cycling shoes. 44 in this model. Forefoot was nice and roomy with snug heels. The flex under toes is great for walking/hiking.

I purchased this jacket for rowing and running. The bright yellow color will be perfect for early morning rowing sessions when it is dark on the water and rainy runs when people are not expecting someone to be running down the road. The fit is slim which will keep it from getting caught in the oars and the sleeves are really easy to remove if I start to get overheated. The slim fit is exactly what I was looking for. I have room to comfortably fit a long sleeve shirt underneath. If you prefer a looser fit I would recommend sizing up. For reference, I am 5'9" - 35" hips; 32" bust; 26" waist. I have long arms and the sleeves are just long enough. If you are taller than me you might not be happy with the sleeve length.

Love these! This is my first pair of cycling shoes that I bought for my Peloton and they look and feel great. Definitely needed to size up; I am a size 8 in all shoes and ended up keeping size 41 (I bought them in 40 and 40.5 as well since other reviews said they run small). I like a little pop of color so these are perfect for me and at a great price - it's hard to find good looking shoes under $100!

My husband was looking for a comfortable, wicking, loose fitting jersey and the Pearl Izumi Quest Jersey fit the bill. He liked the colors of the Artic/Midnight Navy jersey versus the other colors which were a little too ‘loud’ for him. The length was also spot on (he tried a competitor’s jersey and it was too short in the length).

I bought these for casual work attire. I wouldn't recommend them for doing anything athletic; the soles are rigid and I feel like they would break down easily under daily workouts. However they are an excellent looking shoe, and for casual wear they are perfect. I would recommend purchasing new insoles if you need arch support.

The PI size chart indicates the XXL fits a 41.5-45 inch waist. I have a 43 inch waist (just measured to make sure) and have the Velcro adjustments extended as far as they will go and I cannot button the shorts. If there’s one thing I hate, it’s spending money on things that are inaccurately described and having to return them.

So far so good. I am 120lbs 63” very thin lower body and got an xs. Jean sizes I’m 25-26 depending on jean. I heard cycling shorts tend to stretch over time and you don’t want them loose due to chafing.

I’m normally a size 8 or 8.5 in womens and opted for size 41 in these. I have a wider forefoot but still pretty much am always able to wear medium/normal width shoes. These are narrower in the toe box than regular shoes but sizing up helped that problem. As one reviewer also noted, the Velcro straps are a little on the short side but not problematic. Overall a pretty good shoe for spinning (what I use them for) and would recommend to others with the caveat of going up at least 1 size from your regular shoe size.

These lil shorts are awesome! I wear a small and when I looked at them I though, no way are these going to fit me, they are tiny. But they are so stretchy and then fit great. The waist is very form fitting but low enough that they don't bind in the belly area. They fit snug up onto the lower back with no gap, so they would work well under a baggier short or under tights for cooler weather. The shammy is nicely padded without bulk. They are very cute too! I got the grey ones.
