This might seem like an odd suggestion but Ive ridden a few times in these babies over the winter: http://nativeshoes.com/ca/adult-boots/jimmy-winter-jiffy-black-solid-plaid (the name is just coincidental)

They are lighter than pretty much any other shoe and stick to flats incredibly well not to mention totally waterproof. I even modeled them for some of the nsmb boys during parking lot beers last sat on Seymour.

They looked sweet right guys??! lol

Hiya Jimmy,

They looked good to me as post-ride shoes but very thin and light for actual pedaling. However if they work for you, that's great.

Mic I think you got sorted but here's my review of the Giro Alpineduro: http://nsmb.com/giro-alpineduro-winter-shoes/

I used them again this winter and they were great, although I've been riding more on flats and this is my new go-to for winter conditions or otherwise (for flat pedals only, unfortunately): http://nsmb.com/own-fr-01-shoe-review/

The Simano is really a great shoe, never thought much of shoes designed for winter riding as I have posted above. So wrong.

I checked your review but was unsure about the size and the insulation. I once tried on Giro shoes and found them rather slim-fitting and a notch too tight.

Out of curiosity, I checked the OWN website. 220 Euros for a shoe is a bit much I think. I know, I know, quality build and such but still. My 5.10 FR were less expensive. And probably last longer than two seasons.

OWNs kinda look like a pair of Jordan's or something.
Like the Arcteryx shoe I can't purchase unless I get to try on all sizes.

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.
