Overall a very comfortable fit and wonderfully breathable in the hot humid northeast. Sizing is accurate as far as length. These are not women specific so I expected to have to tweak the fit and replaced the insoles with one that is just a little bit thicker which did the trick. Several years ago I did the same with my first pair of Northwave so I was expecting to do the same this time. My friends say that my yellow shoes are very visible when pedaling. Happy I purchased them.
