Looking for good gravel shoes

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I ordered a pair of Fizik Terra X5ís last week but they havenít arrived yet. Iím looking forward to trying them out. Iím currently using a pair of Specialized Comp mountain bike shoes and have no complaints. I just needed a second pair of shoes. I paid $135 on Amazon for the Fizikís.

I've heard good things about the X5. Limited sizes but worth a look: https://bikecloset.com/product/x5-te...n-tangy-green/

I've been using the X5 Terras for about a year, no issues.

Just ordered Shimano SH-RX800 Gravel Shoes. They come with Arch support inserts, I believe.

I just received a pair of Fizik Terra X5’s in military green yesterday. They look great and feel pretty good, so far. I’ve worn them around the house for a couple hours, and I wore them on a 20 mile road ride this morning. I think they are a tad narrow in the toe box, but we’ll see.

I have the Fizik X5 Terra's and love them. I had to play around with the insoles but other than that they are great. I have put them through a lot of bad weather as well and they are holding up great.
