Bottom Line:   
Perfectly snug shoes,once you've read the instructions no problem.Oven baked for 10mn,put foot in with inner soles and cycling socks,buckle in adjustable velcro strap and that's it.Although i did change the inner soles to thinner ones but none the less i have no issues with the shoes at all.

Strengths:    none - just marketing bullet points

Weaknesses:    fit, form over function

Bottom Line:   
I had the exact same problem as the other reviewer +++

The 45 fit me (I wear a 44 Sidi) and there are a couple of pinch points inside the shoe that pretty much left me bed ridden after my first 60km ride with these shoes. My feet felt as though they were smashed with hammers. In 30 years of riding I have never experienced anything like this.

The ratchet is velcro adjustable BTW.

Strengths:    Heat moldable

Weaknesses:    Terribly mis-sized, a full size smaller than stated

Bottom Line:   
Really poor design and sizing. Bought the 45, which is normally my size, and they were easily one size too small. Returned them for 46's and the rachet buckle strap is so short it barely reaches the buckle. I'll heat them up and try molding them, but unimpressed so far.
