      Comments about Northwave Sparta SBS Mountain Shoes:

      Great shoe, especially at the sale price. Very comfortable, nice and padded around the ankles and the buckle system works great. The only problem is the sizing is off (which I knew from previous Northwave shoes). Order a full size larger. Ex. 44.5 order 45.5 and they will fit perfect. Would buy again in a heartbeat!

      Very happy with this shoe. Very comfortable with a quick break-in. Shoe runs true to size, but maybe a touch narrow. I have a narrow foot and it felt a little tight on the sides till I used them. After a quick break-in they feel great now!

        Comments about Northwave Sparta SBS Mountain Shoes:

        Very happy so far w/ these shoes. They run true to size, but perhaps a bit narrow. I have a narrow foot and these were a little snug width wise when I first put them on. They did "break in" and give a little quickly though. After my 2nd ride I didn't notice it at all. Good stiff sole that I did not feel any flex out of when pedaling, but still ok to walk around in. I would recommend these.

          Sizing is pretty good. Ratchet works to secure snug fit as advertised. Had to walk several blocks in them and they were reasonably comfortable. Ventilation is cooler than they look on the exterior.

          Comments about Northwave Sparta SBS Mountain Shoes:

          I ride clips for road biking and love them. Just gave these a shot for aggressive trail riding to gain better control in climbs. They take some getting used to especially with tight turns on a 29er and getting out, but I'll get there. Definite confidence booster and these shoes LOOK sharp! The quick strap velcro and adjustable clip keep the shoes tight, but they still have some play in the clip. For the price, give them a shot!
