Great Fit

I finally retired my old pair of specialized shoes after 10 years of wear and tear. These new ones are very comfortable, I was concerned because I have wide feet but they fit perfectly.

Snug and comfy

I have a narrow foot and these shoes tighten as needed. The external shell is more comfortable than my old shoe

Good, not perfect

Needed to replace my old shoes, these were the right price, and I wanted the BOA closure. The instep seems to be a bit low for my foot, but the toe box is nice and wide, so I feel like my Fred Flintstone feet have plenty of room in them. The thing that I find a bit odd, is that the opening is not straight up the middle of the shoe, so I have to play with the tongue before tightening them up.

GREAT 1st road shoe!!!

First of all, let me just say that I am not biased towards Specialized- a lot of people are brand loyal and can be blinded to some degree with a bit of bias.. Truth be told, I work in the industry and primarily sell a major competitor brand to Specialized. With that said, these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet. It truly does not feel like an entry-level shoe.. This shoe is going to be everything you want in a road shoe- when you first put these on, you get the feeling that the shoe was custom made for you. And so far they have not let me down one bit. You cant find another shoe at this price point that feels and performs as exceptionally as this. I will be wearing Specialized shoes for the long haul!!!!

Finally getting a new pair of road shoes.

I really wouldn't consider another brand. I've owned Specialized mountain, commuter and road bike shoes for years. I wear a large 49/14.5 size shoe, difficult to find bike shoes so large in other brands. I just purchased a new pair of Torch 1.0 to replace a pair of Specialized BG Carbon shoes I've had since 2006!

Awesome shoes

I raced a lot as a teenager 35 years ago. These shoes are better than anything that was available then. On sale for 1/2 off they are also less expensive than anything that I ever wore. Back in the day I had the Time pedals and shoes when they came out (pricey but I was sponsored). I'm not comparing the Torch 1.0 to an average late 80s shoe. I find them super easy to get on and off. I have ridden them stright up on climbs for an hour and 45 minutes and had zero issue. I've worn them on 4 hour rides that are not too climby also with no issues. I've used them from 40F (with shoe covers) up to the low 80s F with nothing to complain about. I wear a 45 in these. If I want a tight fitting US shoe I get size 11. Day to day shoes are usually 11.5. My feet are a bit wide. I comfortably wear for hiking (where you size up a bit) a 45.5 in Scarpa, 11.5 US in Asolo, and for mountaineering a 45.5 La Sportiva Nepal (sometimes wishing I had a 46 to make more room for big socks).
