Just got them explore shoes. When I noticed Rapha's comments that the sizing is quite similar to giro I was pretty sure I'd need to return them but they seem to be a little bit bigger than giro.
They fit snug and comfy and look absolutely dope. The strap near the nose of the shoe seems to be more style than function sort of thing - it doesn't seem to tighten anything (unless i pull it real hard which i haven't tried yet). My toes of left feet touch the end-side of the shoe a little bit but maybe it's no biggie.
Once again - they look absolutely fire.
