    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...

    "I understand. I just don't care"

    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
