I've got the Nike Poggio's. 260 grams (quoted). I took the inner soles out, they fit my foot better that way, but I got wide feet. Not sure if they still sell the poggio's I think it's been upgraded to the poggio II's. I've gotten lots and lots of miles out of the poggio's. Maybe 9,000 miles (15km?). ... ke_poggio2

I have Vittoria Shoes - Arrow LighTech (Full Carbon Sole).

They aren't the lightest; I think Rocket7 are, but they are definitely the comfiest, they have lots of adjustment, and still remain on par with the best of shoes.

They are comparable with DMT, but better than Sidi. The full carbon sole is very stiff (laterally), and has a uniform thickness of 3mm!!

They are handmade in Italia
