Details

Extremely rad.

It's obvious that Northwave's Italian designers dumped all their all energy into designing the Extreme Shoe—not naming it. Constructed using an Ultralight Carbon sole and three hook-and-loop straps, the Extreme shoe enters the market as one of the lightest shoes available, and light shoes mean less rotational weight, which means you go faster. Northwave used their Biomap technology to create a stitchless upper, effectively shaving grams while maximizing comfort. The Extreme Air footbed provides ample arch support while eliminating hotspots so you can leave the suffering to your legs—not your feet.

  • Ultralight Microfiber upper wraps feet like a burrito for comfort
  • Three superlight hook-and-loop straps prevent shifting when it's time to sprint

Great, light shoes.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I've had mine now for about 3 years, and they're very light. I wouldn't have believed it, but I actually did pick up a little speed on climbs (ok, I was coming from Carnac Lemonds)! Fit is great, not as narrow as Sidi's. Only complaint, is that they don't hold up as well as the Carnacs (> 10 years). But, I just managed to buy a 2nd pair, so I should be set for the next 3-4 years anyway. And did I mention how light they are?

A+ for performance/comfort

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 44.5
  • Height: 05'11"
  • Weight: 135lbs

I wanted shoes shoes that pretty much disappeared when you put them on - these are it! Fits perfectly to my feet, feels essentially weight less, and the wood insert really absorbs vibration while keeping the feel. Great for climbing. 1000 miles in (also, I bought them here a while back when they were about $100!)

Love them!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are wicked light, and very rigid. I bought these because Backcountry had them on sale and I needed a new pair of shoes. I was so impressed after using these that I am debating buying another pair. They are very light and super rigid which makes a noticeable difference when riding. They are definitely summer/spring/fall shoes, not winter. They are very breathable, which is good, but when riding on a frigid winter morning, your feet will freeze. I just bought some shoe covers, and voila, problem solved. You won't be disappointed with these.

Great shoe for wider feet

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I wear a 46 sidi; the NW 45.5 is almost as long. I wear a size 11 dress shoe; as most of you know the size charts on cycling shoes have no relation to dress shoe sizes.

The shoe is really impressively light. But I have AA narrow feet, and even cranking down on the straps and wrinkling the stiff upper, i just couldn't get past the cavernous toe box.

The weight weenie in me wanted to like the shoe, but i had to return it.

Unanswered Question

Does this shoe have the Valgus wedge built...

Does this shoe have the Valgus wedge built in like Specialized

The sizing of this model looks different...

The sizing of this model looks different from other models like the SBS where I am a size 9-9.5 and would fit a 43 but in this model size chart says I would need no bigger than a 42? The 42 on the 2012 SBS model is tight.
