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

Serfas Podium Road Shoes, any thoughts?



So I'm looking at getting my first road shoe. My LBS has these shoes for a price within my budget. They fit well and are very comfortable, not sure how stiff they are compared to other shoes. Also, I'm not quite familiar with the brand.

I've tried looking in and out of the forums for reviews but can't find any. Has anybody here used these shoes? Any thoughts on these would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I have these and they are ok. I wish the sole were a bit stiffer at times, but they are much better than the mountain bike shoes I replaced. I've been riding with them almost daily for 6 mo or so now and they have held up well.

Thanks for your thoughts guys. I am coming from clips and straps and wanted a more stiffer setup hence upgrading to clipless.

Pallen, yeah I noticed they are really comfortable and cushion-y and im concerned that they might not be as stiff as i wanted them to be. I really like to ride hard and long sometimes, I also enjoy riding up hills. Do these things keep up?
