Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek IV WRX Cycling Shoes - Closeout
Pearl Izumi brings the best of two worlds: the stiffness of a racing shoe, and the look and feel of a legendary Pearl Izumi running shoe. The X-Alp Seek IV WRX has the racer's delight, a carbon sole, but it's rubber lugged so that you can still climb hills or walk over obstacles without doing the zombie shuffle. The built-in lace garage is cinch-easy tightening with zero lace ends to get caught in your chain, and IonMask technology keeps feet dry, cool and happy.
  • Ion mask technology offers water resistance with breathability
  • Dual density EVA X-Alp outsole/midsole with firmer second density EVA between pedal and foot for off the bike cushioning and comfort and on the bike power transfer
  • Carbon rubber lugged outsole for superior traction and durability
  • Built in lace garage eliminates drivetrain interference
  • Low cut construction for a light, fast fit and feel
  • 1:1 Energy Foam technology in heel crash pad for ultimate cushioning when off the bike

    Looks like normal sport shoe. Took very steep inclines and did have to walk and thankfully this shoes are decent at walking. Comfy, a little bit tight for a size 9. Love all the reflective parts since sometimes I ride road at night.

    Comments about Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek IV WRX Cycling Shoes - Closeout:

    I bought these because walking with my road shoes was getting to be a hassle. I sometimes go on all day bike trips with my friends and when we get off to look around I need something better to walk in. These shoes fit the bill perfectly. They do ad weight. I had to buy new pedals as well. Overall I believe it was worth it to change.

      This is a great shoe! I agree with the other comments in regards sizing...make sure you check out the sizing chart before buying. I had to return a pair and order a size larger; now they fit great. I use them all day and they are very comfortable, just as comfortable as regular tennis shoes. The only con I find is that shoe lace compartment, it is great to have it but the opening is a bit too low, but the shoes are great and they look great!

              Comments about Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek IV WRX Cycling Shoes - Closeout:

              I bought these to supplement a pair of Keen Austin cycling shoes that I Use for my ten mile commute. The Keens are quite comfy but they really soak up the water during the winter and they were starting to look pretty rough.

              The Pearl Izumi are more of a traditional cycling shoe, so a bit narrow. But they are quite comfortable and they look great with cycling gear or casual commuting clothes. They offer a good compromise between stiffness and walkability. I could see wearing these at work occasionally. The SPD are sufficiently recessed as to mostly avoid the irksome sounds of metal on concrete when walking.

              I bought a size smaller than I ultimately needed and had to return them for an appropriate size. That is always a risk when buying online and when buying a brand that you aren't familar with. Bike Nashbar did a fine job during the return and re order process.

                  Great price for a great pair of shoes! Fit perfect, very comfortable and has made a difference in my riding. Being a rookie, I can see where good equipement is key to learning the sport.

                    Very happy with these PI shoes. I have a wide foot and usually wear 13 wides for shoes but rarely find them, because of that my running shoes are 14's. I purchased these in 48's and I couldn't be happier. Narrow shoe for me, but not so narrow that the feel uncomfortable, I would describe these as a snug and scure fit, the 48's are sung at the width of my foot but slight room in the toes. Very please with the purchase, happy to see 'water-resistant' written on the side of the shoe yet I haven't seen moisture yet to comment on the review.
