Vittoria Unique cycling shoes

Where bought and price
Ride n' Style (Perth-Cottesloe) Cost: $390 ($550 RRP)

How it is used
Time trials, club rides, on long rides

Description
All velcro straps (no ratchet clasps) Super thin CF sole

Positives
+ Extremely comfortable, I can't feel them when they are adjusted properly!
+ Very light (200 gm for size 42, 296 gms per shoe with Time cafe cleats)
+ Great fit for wide feet. (I am a EE width fitting)
+ Seem quite stiff.
+ Cool! very well ventilated
+ Great looking shoe

image here - I have the previous model which is a creamy white rather than a bright white.

Negatives
- No replaceable heal. The minimalist heal contributes towards the low weight.
- No small bolts provided, these will be required for some cleats and were needed for my Time cafe cleats.


Additional notes
Only 4 mm of thread can protrude through the cleat, so bolts need to be ground down, or buy special bolts.

Recommendation
Buy if you have the cash and if you are in search of a wide fitting shoe without going up a size.
