Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave Cycling Shoe
Designed for road racing at the highest level, the Vento Powerstrap R2 Aeroweave’s structure and breathability give us the competitive edge and is the lightest and stiffest shoe in Fi'zi:k’s line. The Aeroweave upper creates an open weave that is both durable and breathable, while the Powerstrap closure provides a wrap-around secure fit at a light weight. Fi'zi:k’s R2 unidirectional carbon sole is the stiffest from Fi'zi:k, making sure every ounce of effort transfers from foot to crank. The cleat mounting on the R2 is set back slightly, closer to the midfoot, which allows for more ergonomic cleat position for more aggressive riding.

Note on sizing & 1st impression
I bought these shoes specifically for summer riding because of the high airflow and only carpet tested them before returning. The upper is very supple and comfortable. I could see them accommodating a variety of foot shapes. I have low volume feet and a narrower heel. The upper conformed really nicely to my foot & felt comfortable with the lower strap and supple weave affecting width. There was a small bit of heel lift if i really toed off. Someone with a more full heel would probably not notice any lift. This shoe in a 45 fit me (same fit as R1 Infinito) whereas i need a 45.5 in an SWorks 7 road shoe and a 46 in a much earlier SWorks shoe. The Vento insole has lots of perforations in the forefoot but is otherwise unremarkable thin foam. There are no arch inserts to customize fit or any other supplied accessories.
