Saw these shoes on WeChat, could this be S-Works 7 road shoes made for team BORA – hansgrohe?

Swear to god those tiny toebox velcro straps do absolutely nothing other than mess up the aesthetics of shoes.

Other observations:

- The dials obviously. Are they Boa or not?
- The burrito wrap tongue. I've had problems with these personally, but most people seem to get along fine with them.
- Stiffness Index of 15 on the Specialized scale...previous max was 13.
- The upper around looks really thin compared to last gen/

I'm guessing they lose a little weight compared to 6. Looks are subjective, but I don't love these.

oh come on! 2017 (almost 2018!!!) and still a velcro on their top end shoe??? I went to buy S-works 6 but didn't, just because I couldn't stop messing with the velcro to get it to work with my idiotic foot....

+1 I own S-works shoes and I have no idea what the purpose of those velcro straps.

I’ve never adjusted the front Velcro strap on any shoes I have owned.

These usually come out every other year, so these are coming out a bit late. Stiffness index seems to have gone from 13 to 15. I'm hoping they did something with the toe box and made it even wider.

Never been a fan of that style of tongue (if you want to call it a tongue) on a cycling shoe. Definitely prefer the 6 to that.

I agree the Velcro looks rubbish. Why did they introduce that? my old s works shoes just have two boa dials and are perfectly comfortable and easy to adjust, I think the Velcro appeared on the model after.

I discovered road-shoe-nirvana back in about 2011 with this version

So I bought a spare pair when they went on closeout sale. I would buy more just as backups. Perfect fit/no velcro.

The newer ones look nice, but why mess with perfection ?

The Velcro strap helps secure the toe box. I notice the difference

I’m thoroughly in the camp that keeps the toebox loose so my forefoot can splay. Midfoot and heel get cranked down to the edge of comfort and security though. Also with my Gaerne G.Stilo+ the bottom Boa dial is farther down so it helps secure a little bit more of the forefoot around the metatarsals.
