Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

BOA Road Shoes

What's the best road shoe option out there with the BOA system? I have narrow feet and this might be the best approach, save a fully-custom shoe for best fit.

narrow feet... maybe a sidi might be something for you, not sure about the quality compared to the s-works though.

Here's a question that hadn't been asked in what...a month?

In the true spirit of the 41, I say...you only think you need narrow shoes...

And what makes you think that a top-of-the-line shoe by of one of the most famous cycling shoe manufacturers, who specialize in cycling (and mortorcycling) footwear and who have some four decades of experience, would be lacking in quality compared to the S-Works?

not saying their shoes are bad, i've only heard the boa system they use wasn't that good. they've probably solved that by now but i haven't bought some since than. i do have a pair of sidis myself, so i'm absolutley not saying their shoes are bad. they were a bit narrow for me though
