Just like their name implies, Pearl Izumi's All-Road Shoes handle any road you can throw at them. They feature light, breathable uppers with three buckle 1:1 Anatomic Closures that conform to your feet for superior comfort and have nylon/composite soles with Select 1:1 Power Plates for excellent support and pedaling efficiency. Select Heel Cups hold your feet in place for excellent stability, and grippy outsoles for outstanding traction.
This is my second pair, I liked it so much. The first pair, I damaged the heal from a minor fall. My bad, I was following to closely. Best to keep some distance. It's still good, but it ain't pretty. Very Comfortable, very easy to walk in, no clip clopping or sliding like in pro shoes. In cold temps you will need shoe covers, because they are vented for breath-ability. Good all purpose riding shoe. Not for the hardcore serious rider.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
