Cycling Plus. Here is the review:

"Made by the French manufacturer responsible for developing the clipless pedal concept, Look shoes feature outsoles designed exclusively for the three-point fixing of the triangular Look cleat. Understandable back when Look dominated the pedal market, but these days expanding the compatibility would seem a more astute commercial move. The outsole is very well made though, and the carbon fibre construction saves weight and provides exceptional stiffness. The uppers are the familiar blend of Lorica and mesh, retaining the foot with a triple Velcro strap system. Getting them on isn't so easy given the style of the tongue and elasticated strip beneath, but once done, the fit feels quite good, particularly in the toe-box area. And thanks to the carbon content, the weight is down to just 539g.

"Verdict: 6 [out of 10]. Lightweight race shoe with exceptional outsole rigidity, but Look limited compatibility."

In short, I guess they're saying it's a great shoe if the reservations which knocked down the score don't apply to you, i.e. you use and will only use Look-compatible pedals, and don't mind taking an extra second or two to get them on.

I got a pair from supergo.com for $99. Service was quick 2/3 days. I hit the size right and they are very comfortable. I would consider them if I were you.
