The fit is pretty similar like Northwave, if we try to compare it. But the complete shoe is made different than most production (plastic - stiffer area around toes) shoes, but they are for sure for a lower foot and also no problem if slightly wider foot. I have a bit wider foot, just so that Sidi was a bit too narrow, but don't have any problem with our shoes (or Northwave if it helps for comparison)
Most riders who came from SLR Kit Carbonio really like our Lupina model. The most important is the saddle shape, the padding really can't help you if you won't like the saddle shape.
2) like mrlobber posted, we can make such saddle, we don't recommend to paint it because our saddle shell is manufactured so that it can flex (to provide the right comfort) and if painted it for sure wouldn't work well
3) I have a pair of white shoes already the past two seasons - the main problem is that it is extremely hard to clean them, the white fabric gets grey after some more use. Hopefully we'll find a way to produce also white in the future, personally I am also a fan of white shoes for cycling. But at this moment we will produce only black for now. Maybe we'll give another try with a few small changes, we'll see
Maybe our List saddle model would suit you better? It is a Lupina bassed saddle shell, but without cutout and padded. The saddle shell is 132mm, but with padding it is actually 140mm (3mm of padding and leather)
Does it mean that a padded 132mm Lupina is also 140mm wide and 132?
Yes, basicly the saddle shells for our padded saddles are the same as on the full carbon saddles, only with added padding and leather, which adds around 3-4mm of thickness (on each side then if you measure the actual width)
