Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great shoe! I was a little nervous about ordering the right size in these, given that the reviews I read were all over the place from "true to size" to "be sure to order one size larger." I normally wear a 43 (9.5 US), and that's what I ordered. They fit great, even with a medium weight wool sock. Also, I used to own a pair of Giro Privateers in a 43, and always found them uncomfortably narrow in the toe box. Not the case with the Republics at all. The lacing system is awesome. Having worn strap/buckle shoes for biking for so long made me realize how much I prefer real lacing - I'm able to adjust the tension on these so much more effectively and comfortably than a strap/buckle shoe. With the fit comments aside, I really like these shoes. I use them primarily for gravel/B-road riding and they fit the bill perfectly. Plenty stiff enough without being totally awkward off the bike. Noticeably better traction when walking around than typical hard plastic soles as well. Great ventilation.

Is the upper on these shoes leather or microfiber. Your web site says two different things. "a supple, perforated microfiber upper" and "High-quality leather uppers with nonslip laces; micro-suede heel counter" Thank

having trouble clipping into shimano a600 spd pedals. Should I need a shim or cleat plate for my standard shimano 2 hole cleats?

Asked by: timc
These shoes are designed to work with the Shimano A600 SPD Sport Road Bike Pedals without any extra accessories.

Are these more of a touring shoe than race?   And is the toe box narrow or more squared off for toe space?  

Asked by: Malecite
​These are preferred for touring rather than racing and the toe box is more round which makes these less narrow than many road biking shoes.

Will these work with Shimano mountain pedals, which is what I have on my rain/commuter bike?

Asked by: Ride more
If your Shimano pedals use SPD (2-hole) style cleats, these shoes will work.
