interesting how they found no difference in weight whereas Cyclingtips found a somewhat substantial increase....

I’m actually happy with the six, except for the width (and I’m already in the wide). If these are actually wider I hope to see some measurements.

I'd say it will be a month or 2 if it happens

I got some 7’s on Tuesday. They’re 15g heavier than the 6’s per shoe for a size 43.

Def easier to get on and off. The padded tongue is a nice touch. Slightly roomier in the toe box and the overall shoe material feels softer and more pliable.

The BOA S3’s are a thing of beauty. They feel incredibly precise and like they’ll survive a nuclear blast. LOVE them.

Yes the 7’s are the better shoe.

I just got a pair of 6's and if you take the boa cables out of the guides, the shoe completely opens up and is very easy to get on and off. I saw that recommendation on a review for the 7's, but it works the same way on the 6.

I’ve got the 6’s as well and that’s true. But the material on the Padlock is different and def easier. You don’t need to relive the guides now.

Not a huge deal admittedly.

Can you put BOA S3s on SL6 shoes? I like the shoes but S2-S BOA dials are not very reliable.

No. It’s a totally different base and fitting. I initially wondered the same myself.

280g in a size 46.

Best shoes I’ve ever owned.

Some weight comparisons. Single shoe, all with the same Time iclic cleat and the same insole. The Bont and Giro are size 45, the Specialized 44.5:

S works 7 : 304
Bont Vaypor S : 306
S works sub 6 : 258
Giro Empire SLX : 260

Has anybody owned both the new S-works 7 road shoes compared to the lower end carbon Expert Spesh road shoes with Velcro tow strap and single Boa closure dial? Do you find the S-works shoes more comfortable or better tunable in fit with two Boa dials?
Any other features warranting the higher price S-works shoes?...presumably S-works shoes maybe a bit lighter due to choice of materials...though maybe modest because the Expert level does have carbon soles. I will say I am very pleased with the 2017 Expert shoes with single Boa. Only issue for me was the tow box was tight on my left foot which is fractionally longer than my right...and I used a rigid shoe tree with a protrusion/bump taped to the top/tow area to stretch the shoe locally between rides. This works for those that may have the same issue and need a bit more room aka height or width in the toe box which is a bit narrow with these shoes...the Expert model at least. I didn't want to size up....I wear sz 45...because would be too roomy for my right foot in particular which is about 1/2 size shorter than my left foot..

Thank you

That is really good to know. I've replaced my Boa twice and another one is starting to go again. I was thinking of getting a new pair of shoes, and this may just be them. Arrival date for my shop is late march.
