    North Wave Razer vs Pearl Izumi Elite Shoes

    I am looking at the North Waves and the Izumis. They are pretty close in price and both fit well. I also like the releases on these. The Izumis pull up and the NW push up on the side. I don't like shoes where I have to push down to release. The Sidi Domis don't fit well in either normal or mega and the Mavics are too norrow. I really liked the Specialized Pros; much better construction than the Sidis but they are more money.
    Anyone have experience with the NW or Izumis?
    Thx.

    I have a pair of NWs I got from Chainlove a year or so ago. Not sure what model, but they do have the ratcheting top strap. They fit my EEE feet well and have held up as well as any Shimano shoe I've owned, and that is here on Maui where wet, muddy rides are frequent. I have no input on the P.I.s.

    I have a pair of Northwave Chameleons that i have been rockin for three seasons now. They fit great and have been very durable. I just bought a pair of the Rebels. I tried on the PI's in the store, but they were too narrow and felt cramped. The NW's just feel right for my feet.
    I ride at ludicrous speed
