Why We Like The X5 Terra Cycling Shoe

The Fi'zi:k X5 Terra Cycling Shoe provides the micro-adjustable fit, efficient pedaling platform, and robust durability we've come to expect from Fi'zi:k's premium cycling shoes, but without taking a big hit to our wallet.

Great shoes, regardless of price

I have been wearing these for a little over two years now. I do a combination of gravel rides and XC/trail riding with them. I am a size 46 in these (also for Specialized, Giro, Shimano, and Lake) and the fit is just right; neither too tight nor too roomy. I have just enough room to wear thick winter socks with them. My feet are medium-wide, and I haven't had any issues with the width. Pros: they are well-built, durable, and very comfortable. Not too stiff nor too flexible; I find they have just enough give without feeling like you are wasting energy when pedaling hard. I have done a 70-mile road ride in them without any issues, Cons: not the lightest nor the best ventilated (which is good in the winter), the single BOA dial makes fine-tuning the fit difficult (a minor nuisance for me).

Great Shoe for the $$

I’ve been riding in this shoe for over 9 months on Gravel , MTN, and Fat Tire bikes.. great fit and have held up better than my SIDI Tiger for less than half the Price ... Easy to clean and BOA system works great ...

Nice shoe for price, not for me

Overall first impressions were fantastic. I was excited about the shoe. I have a pretty narrow foot, but the fit wasn’t great. The cutout for the ankle was set too far back and so I got quite a bit of rubbing on the lateral ankle when it was tight. Also much stiffer than I’m used to so it was rather uncomfortable to run in cx races. Boa system is awesome. Will look for this in the next shoe, but unfortunately I returned these.

Shoe review.

I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden the same pair of Sidi shoes for 22 years on my 33 year old Lotus Legend II road bike. I've purchased these shoes for my new stainless steel frame road bike to offset the money I overspent on my new stainless steel road frame, group set, Kris King components, and HED wheels. In short, they work well and I like the Boa system. Not quite Sidi, but damn good for the price point.

How is the fit compared to Sidi?

Fizik X5 Terra

I've used it several times
True to size

These Fizik's are my first new pair of shoes in a very long time so they came with some cool tech that i never had before. Mainly the BOA system. The fit is very good for my foot and the BOA system allows for a very quick fastening. Shoes are light enough and feel very well made. They feel much more like a road shoe than a MTB show. I ride with SPD cleats on my road bike, I like being able to walk around with the MTB shoes, much easier and more comfortable than a road shoe cleat on the ground. One thing I did find very different than my older Speacialized shoes is the space between the front area and heel area is completely smooth, so if you unclip you can't rest your foot easily on the pedal as it will just slip off. My older shoes had a small but very useful ridge on both sides of the shoe that allowed for some grip on the pedal while unclipped. I have already gotten used to it, but my first couple rides were startling when i tried placing my foot on the pedal while not locked in. Overall after a couple hundred miles Im very happy with the shoe. My Specialized have lasted over 10 years so only time will tell, but so far so good.
