    Pearl Izumi X Project Shoes

    Pearl Izumi X Project Shoes, anyone find these for sale yet? The way they are designed fits the riding in Thailand to a T (at least what they are described as). I would like a real world unbiased review and maybe where I can try/buy the darn things

    It is odd, there has been no talk on their website. They are listed in all the newest catalogs but not available yet. Keep in contact with your LBS I bet they will be able to hook you up before anyone else.

    Theres a load of vids and BIG release reports on numerous websites, flashing lights, glossy pics and bum patting about them at the last quarter of 2012 then nothing at all !!!

    A bit dissappointing for us running about in our sock soles waiting on them.... Pearl Izumi do you know how painful it is to ride eggbeaters with no shoes


    ..... a wee bit of exaggeration there, riding 6 month old Dragon 3's but might as well be in my socks with the sole wear on them, pure crap.

    I was expecting to see them on display next month at Sea Otter, but after reading this I will lower my expectations.

    I didn't go but a friend did and he tried them on. He said they felt great but no release date. See what ozzybmx said.

    I just talked to my local PI store and the girls there were great (as always). Said that the 1.0 should be released in late May with the 2.0 and 3.0 following in early July. That was the best she could come up with but had quite a few people that had been interested in them. For the time being my X-Alps will have to do and I will just deal with the failing velcro until then.

    Too much of a delay. I was holding off as long as I could, but my shoes were falling apart. Had to pull the trigger on some new Shimanos.

    Same here. I really wanted these but couldn't hold off any longer for shoes. Ended up with giro gauges and I'm happy.

    But for my next pair.....I'll certainly check these out.

    Yep me too, I bought the MX331 Lakes.

    IMO Pearl Izumi have done a bit of a marketing balls up with these, they blew the wind up them nearly a year ago... got us all interested and everyone was hanging out for them.... then nothing !!!

    May, maybe June but still no mention of them on the PI website, actually their website is another thing lacking in what is a company that produces top notch cycling products.

    Would you have rather had them have delays and deliver a high quality product or just shove something out to meet their "proverbial" release date? Personally I would rather have the prior than the later, but I am not in your situations where my shoes are falling apart (though my velcro will be done after this season). June I am stoked to see these and grab a pair.

    I dont really care anymore either way. The original release was blown out long ago... hopefully they come good on the June release date.

    I have a few pair of shoes, definately not riding about in rags. The walkability of these appealed to me but so did the new lakes and the delay has sent me else where.
