They must be reasonably comfy, almost every team not sponsored by specialized seems to have one of those for a few of their riders.

The new S-Works are leagues better than past iterations. The entire build quality is far higher and they're much more comfortable than the old ones.

Interestingly enough there's a similar discussion right now over on a thread for what I think is an otherwise sexy, very desirable bike (for a WW who wants a performance all-rounder for ultra distance and climbing).
One person accuses NeilPryde of copying BMC.
Another retorts that BMC copied GT.
But, really, BMC is 30+ years after GT who in turn were 30+ years after Thanet Silverlight.

So there.

As long as you don't expect to fit in the same size as you have had about 20 pairs of over the last 6 years in MTB and road

This is an important point. You have to go one full size up for the same fit. They are also a bit narrower.

I like the look of the newest S-Works shoe but find them painfully uncomfortable (I'm VERY flat-footed). So I'm riding 1 gen older version.

Agreed. I would definitely buy a pair of all white. The white/color just doesn't do it for me.

+1. Going back to shimano for 2013. Shame Specialized cannot (or rather doesn't want to) offer all white shoes to their regular customers.
