Has anyone ever seen these? I bought a pair from ebay that says it is their top of the line carbon soled road shoe. They are a Spanish company that makes helmets that are fairly popular in the EU. The shoes look great to me and brand new for $100....so I guess I'll see how they are when they arrive....just curious if anyone here has seen them.

I got the shoes today. The materials are quality. Carbon soles seem really solid. The attachment mechanism is good...the ratchet adjustment works as intended. Shoes a light and look great. I threw new speedplay cleats on them and should be ready to roll. I will post some pics when I can.

They look pretty nice! Was there something in particular that made you want those shoes?

I wanted white and black carbon soled shoes with the ratchet adjustment and ran across these in a search. I really liked the look for some reason and for the price decided to take a chance.

Yes I would be interested in hearing how they
feel on a long ride. I have anvils pair of Sidi's
now but have been thinking of new shoes soon and the new Sidi's are a bit on the gaudy side
and of course way expensive.

My first long ride in them will be Sat. Shooting for 60. Maybe a lofty goal for various reasons but I'll post a quick review nonetheless.

Ok so I got a short ride in this morning. The shoes were really solid and I sort of felt like I was delivering more power to the pedal than with my cheaper shoes (that actually cost me more). That may just be mental though. Very happy with them. One thing I noticed though is that I had to shift my speedplay cleats further towards the inside of my feet than I usually do to keep the shoe from touching the pedal arm.

Well I ended up only doing 40 today and they felt great. Pretty breathable, stiff and light enough for me.
