About the closest thing you can get to all white s-works shoes. Look pretty slick apart from the lime green trim, but I guess I could get past that. What does everybody think? Worth having cavendish on the sole?

I like them but for a man who's won the green jersey once, the whole green thing is well OTT.

not bad, nicer than stock colors but could be better. At least Spec resisted the temptation to charge more $ for them...

$400? Seriously? I think the green color signifies what they've been smoking, not the color of the jersey!

That's the same price as their regular S-Works. Which given that's what they still fall under I actually thought it was a good move to have it as the same price.

Agreed. Hate em or love them good pricing strategy. Still in the ball park of similar shoes.

Still hoping all white come out this season but hey, there is always shoe dye!

Great shoes, color aside.

Have to say these are indeed nice! $400 is still a little steep but I see plenty of folks on S-works shoes all day

Even better in the flesh.

And seem to be 10g lighter (each) compared to current S-Works. Nice!

In all honesty, as much as I love Cav, I tend to agree. the shoes look good though, but I'd prefer them in black with green highights, I always end up with scuffed and dirty looking white riding shoes

$400 seems pretty reasonable for a high end cycling shoe that is good enough for much of the pro tour to me. I'll be on a pair of these very soon.

Slightly off topic but can someone point me towards a good all-white high cycling sock? This is really the only thing I can find.http://www.defeet.com/777494/products/Levitator-Lite-5-White.html

I'd rather get the all white 74 S-works shoes personally. But these are nice.

Shameless plug for Defeet socks.. I really love them. Not terribly high, and at the Aireators are just fantastic.I own several pairs of the white ones, will wear them all the time if I could
