Hello I am sure this is a common question, i am very sorry for that, but i got only a few days to return them if im wrong
OK here is my story, i am a mountain biker, just starting with the clipless pedals, i decided to give in and believe alllllll the people who say the work :) im slow somethimes


Do these shoes strech or wear in nicely?
anyhow i bought Nike Alpine 2 shoe, they fit tighter than i am use to for a day to day shoe, the velcro holds snuggly and look kinda like a have fat feet because the valcro is up over the shoe abit, (hard to explain, not important either),
there is not much room at the front, just a bit but the toe is pointy to my toes cant really move too much al all forward when my heal is at the back, but i dont feel crunched in them.
Sitting for about 30min my feet still felt fine and when I took them off only kinda read lines where the toung sits on the top of the foot.
When I move my foot in a around it kinda pokes the ankle but when biking i dont think my food moves like that.
Now I expect to still run up hills from time to time, (i am also just starting Single speed) so i wanted to make sure im correct with the shoe.

Sorry to bother only realy if you can help and if it is not too much trouble
thank-you very much

:D
