hi
i have a pair of these boots one of the best bits of kit i ever bought. like everyone else has said go up a size this has allowed me to wear a thin pair of liner sock and a pair of sealskin socks in real cold weather. i now always have warm dry feetand it makes such a diffrence to winter rides. hope this helps
regards
tony

i got a pair - not sure what model but they are black with a plasticky coating. waterproof and warm but not breathable so socks can get a bit soggy; even so, I recommend them for cold weather.

Not had the Shimano ones, but I have used offerings from Gaerne, Diadora and Northwave. The Northwave have been the best of them - and really durable too.

I give my boots a spray with nylon waterproofer each year and fill the cleat slots with silicone seal. Keeps everthing nice and watertight.
