anyone using 2014 Defrosters ?
Thanks both. I have used the blue spesh insoles in shimano before too and they were ok. All my other bike shoes (4 pairs) are spesh so will stick with what I know works for me. Glad to hear width sorted this yr. Off to LBS tomorrow and hope they have right size (46), one up from other shoes.

Well I tried on the 46’s at LBS, lovely boots, a big improvement from the old ones, and as per some previous posts quite roomy. Indeed so much that I don’t think I need to size up for thick socks, so they have ordered a pair of 45’s for me to try too (same size as my summer shoes)Posted 4 years ago
Matt, that’s my take so far, on basis of having tried a pair 1 size up from my other spesh shoes, while wearing a thick mountain hiking sock. Unfortunately shop didn’t have next size down ( same size as my other shoes) in stock so are ordering them in. I am hoping that they fit, hence seeking opinion from others who have them. Couple of posts indicate go for same size as normal shoes as they are made bigger for thick socks. I’ll know by about thu once shop has the smaller ones in 🙂Posted 4 years ago
thanks for updates. Hoping that the 45’s that are on their way to LBS (and same size as my other spesh shoes) will work out fine with thick socks – sems like they will, given the 46 was a bit big.
nikxl – with my old ones, and with shoes, i take the insoles out then leave the boots on the hot water cylinder for a day. If they are smelly, sprinkle liberally inside with bicarbonate of soda before drying, do it a couple of times and they should be smell freePosted 4 years agoroadiebiker-m.gMember
iainc- replace the cleat nut. There will be a flap in the inside of the sole, but it may be covered with the lining. You can buy shimano cleat nuts from a few places, if they dont cut them dont to match the old one.
Do you wash the bicarb out afterwards or leave it in? My shoes are embarassingly smelly now, and putting them in the wash isnt going to work.Posted 4 years ago
