      Comments about Pearl Izumi Octane SL II Road Shoes - Closeout:

      One of the best pairs money can buy. I had them all from Sidis (slim but heavy even the top end), Mavic's d'Huez (light but they'll pinch your nerves), Carnac (comfortable but heavy), Diadora (light and uncomfortable). I can say with confidence that the Octane are light and super comfortable. They disappear and you don't remember wearing road shoes until you take them off. 24 hr races, RAAM, RATA - they served me well. Get a pair!

          Comments about Pearl Izumi Octane SL II Road Shoes - Closeout:

          Used this shoe for the summer as my "go to work" shoe, and it did its part of the job...comfortable, stylish, and stiff in the sole...for the ohio summers, with a good pair of socks, the shoe itself was light and cool. the only knock was it was a little wider in the toe box that I am used to, but hey, all shoes fit a little different from brand to brand.

          Nice shoe, be careful with sizing

            Comments about Pearl Izumi Octane SL II Road Shoes - Closeout:

            I've had a size 46 pair of these shoes for 1 year. I probably needed a 45.5 but I rolled the dice and got the 46 based on the sizing chart. The last is unique so be careful when ordering. The integrated arch support is nice, and the sole super stiff but the cut is nothing like a Sidi. They have held up well so far. The main faults with this shoe are the weird sizing and lousy ventilation. Most road shoes feature mesh up by the toes and its for good reason, these shoes do not and I did notice it on hot summer days.

            Looks great but heavier than advertised

            Comments about Pearl Izumi Octane SL II Road Shoes - Closeout:

            These are very lightweight and look great. They also conform and hold to your feet very nicely.

            Do realize that they're white and will get dirty but I found the material easy to clean (a slick white plastic/fake leather).

            The one major disappointment was with how much heavier these were than advertised. They're listed at 470g/pair for a size 43. I ordered a size 40.5 and they weighed in (on my kitchen scale) at 248/shoe or 496/pair. I then realized that maybe the weight advertised was without the insoles. The insoles on my pair weight 25g each so the weight without the insoles is 446g/pair. Maybe this is on par with the 470g/pair for a size 43 but it's a bit misleading. You need insoles!

              I rode 80 miles two days after I received these, they were very comfortable, after a short test ride. They worked very well for me.
