They did well keeping this quiet, unless I've missed something?

Looks like I'll be spending more money :D

Oops...

I struggle with shoe sizing so have to just get a size above and below my normal. Even the no guarantee!Image

Is this a lace comeback? I really don't enjoy the faff of doing laces on my Empires.

I loved the look of my white Empire SLX, but finally accepted they were just a bit too narrow at the toe box and sold them.
Don't know if these come with black laces like the Empires did though. I can imagine those white laces would quickly be beige!

Why would I keep three pairs of shoes in different sizes? I can’t get to Sigma to try them on so it’s easiest to order a size spread. I’ll keep the ones that fit and return the others. Or flip them for profit (that’s a joke btw)

Colours need some work. The white is too white, black too black and the middle option is... well...

The white are very bright which will look great when new but not once you’re caught in bad weather. Black is a bit dull which left me with the middle. Interested to see what they actually look like, I wear block colour kit (as is the bike) so should look ok. I’ll weigh the three pairs and post some photos when I get them next week

Yeah, it's weird. Would, have expected much more of a weight drop from removing the boas.

The main problem of my S-Works 7 shoes was the material and damage on the front.
Why they haven't added any front protection, e. g. Ares have?
