    Look at the Lake MXZ300's I wear a size 44 Euro or 9 1/2 D. Some riders here had suggested that you
    should buy a larger size for extra sock room. I've been happy with a 44 wearing high quality x-c
    skiing socks. Only been out in 25 Deg F but very warm. They seemed a little tight in my living room
    but loosened up on my first ride. I haven't used the laces. They are difficult to tie and I don't
    seem to need them. Two Velcro straps across the instep, another one to close the neoprene uppers and
    a heel strap. Leather shoes with neoprene uppers. I'm impressed with the design. It's a lot like a
    cross country ski boot Using them with Shimano 545 pedals, no problems.

    Louis Garneau's. Half the price and they do the same job.
