I don't like the mushy feel of some cushioned tape but this one is just right. It's not too hard and not too soft. I combine it with the fizik bar gel for the perfect amount of cushioning as my aluminum frame isn't always the best for dampening road vibration. It's also not overly bulky. Great grip from the tape. It's also very durable. I got over a year out of my first roll and the only reason I needed to replace that was because I was switching out the handlebars and housing.

I have an 11.5 and got these in a 44.5 and, for the most part to be the correct size (although had to return them because they were still a bit too wide in the toe box for me). I just got some Specialized in a size 45 and found them to be a bit too big for me, (wish I got them in 44.5) and certainly bigger than the 44.5 Northwaves. Based on these experiences, I would estimate that the Specialized and Northwaves are about the same size.

Side Note: Both are excellent shoes!

I think I might have misphrased the question on the uppers. Are the uppers soft and sock-like like a Sidi, or are they stiffer. The reason I ask is I have the Shimano R132's right now and find the uppers to be brittle and stiff, making the shoe uncomfortable, and, as they broke in, they became far too large. Could these present the same problem?
