Pearl Izumi X-Alp Seek IV MTB/Spin/Touring Shoe. Pearl Izumi's popular multisport shoes get a few upgrades and a nice face lift for the new year. The sole has been upgraded to give you better on and off the bike comfort. Creature comforts like the lace
Weaknesses: laces don't have any sort of restraining device.
Bought these after reading the REI reviews on them. They've worked out great. Felt even better after changing the insoles on them to the sport Dr. Sholls. Make shifted a way to keep the laces down by keeping a loose zip tie around the center lace strap on the tongue of the shoe. Has worked out pretty good so far. Very happy with purchase.
