I really like the look of the Spiuk 15RC shoes.... anyone got any experience with them?

The claimed weight is 470gms (size 42) which compares pretty well in the light shoes stakes. No local stockists have them so I'm going to have to buy online. Keen to hear how they fit, stiffness and the quality of their build if anyone on here has tried a pair.

I have tried these. They are medium width toe box, and seem pretty good bang for the buck (they are only around £150). Have not tried the full heat molding of the upper.

Bought these shoes 2 weeks ago,but because of the bad weather still not ride them.

The weight of a pair is 525grams for a size 46.

The first fit was great,so i do not used the moldable option.

This week i will take em on a ride and i will know more about stiffness etc.

Thanks guys. Think I might take a stab, buy a pair and just see how they go.

Tugboat - if you do get a pair let us know how they are. Also interested in getting a pair of these.

I did get around to ordering a pair but firstly got the wrong size and now the replacements are on backorder. Hopefully not too much longer to wait, and then I'll give a bit of a mini review on them.

Any comments on sizing compared to other brands might help too!
(i.e. I used to ride Sidi's in size 'XYZ' and fit into the Spiuks in size 'ZYX'.)

Sizing is fairly comparable with shimano in terms of length. They are medium width toe box, slightly smaller compared to Shimano, yet a bit wider compared to Sidi.

I use size 43 in Sidi and got the same size in the Spiuks.The Spiuks might not be of same quality as Sidi but great bang for the buck...And the fluo-like green looks flash (If you are into that sort of thing:-b)

yeah, AUD175 for the spuiks (wiggle with a voucher, free shipping) VS AUD375 for sidi wires (xxcycle inc shipping) - i have a hard time believing that the sidi is realy $200 better :\

decisions, decisions...

Wires are pretty nice. I just got a pair and they are a step up from my ergo3s in comfort

How's the heel hold in comparison to the Ergo3's? Sizing comparison?
