I've added circles to the prior photo showing the lumps of padding / stitching that caused the painful pressure point.
Exact same. 100 miles of excruciating riding. The shop won't take them back so these are headed to eBay. Expensive disappointment.

I have the Torch 3.0 with this problem. I hoped the s-works didn't. I can see that is not the case. Over to Shimano then.

Smell - Soak them in white vinegar and hot water.

This is also how I was my Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gi's every few weeks. Used it on my shoes a few times just because but I also wash my shoes once every few weeks in nappisan and the shoes still look brand new

On one of my shoes the Boa dials are a bit loose so the make a climping noise while walking. Feels a bit like you're wearing those cowboy boots :lol: On the other one no such thing.
Does anybody have a solution for this (besides exchanging the Boas)?

As yet unreleased S-Works 7 Vent - Only available in white 8)

Should be dropping within a few weeks. Not so keen on the overall visuals, but interested to try some.

Oooh exos style sole. Me likey (other than aesthetics and cleaning).
Hopefully these aren't an international only release like the team editions that dropped a while back. I'm still salty about those.

Hows the fit if the regular width?

I have wide feet but I hate BLACK SHOES. I dont know what's with Shimano Lake and Specialized thinking people with Wide feet LOVE BLACK SHOES (?)

Hoping the regular width has a roomy toe box and just stretches overtime. There's a deal Im closely watching right now Im losing sleep over it.

Black shoes just sell the best. Don't the current model SW7 come in wide in white?

Those shoes remind me a lot of my favorite running shoes.

It's ventilated in a similar fashion and is always a light breeze feeling on my feet when I'm running.

I'm very interested in trying a pair of these out.

Hell would freeze. The bike industry will die if they made some WIDE WHITE SHOES I swear.

The toe box is very roomy on them. I have a flipper feet (wide at the ball/toes, narrow at the heel), so most "normal" shoes are too narrow in the toe box, and the wide version is too wide at the heel. The S-Works 7 are perfect...roomy toe box, but nice and tight at the heel. They definitely do not stretch out with use, so don't count on that, though
