I was wondering if anyone has ridden look shoes. My brother found a sweet deal on a pair and we're not sure of the fit, and the quality. We don't know what there conversion from Eur. to Us sizing is. If anyone has any input we would appreciate. The model he is looking at is the carbon soled AP376, Thanks alot

Honky,

I had a pair of Looks a few years back - not the carbon soled model you are looking at though. Was very happy with them as they fit and performed well. As far as sizes, they seemed to run true to size - you can find US/Euro conversion charts in a variety of places. I would try the on-line bike shops (Performance, Excel, Colorado Cyclist, etc.) or the sales dept at the place you are buying them at. I don't believe Look has a conversion chart on their site. If you re-post a message with your US size, perhaps you can get lucky and find someone who is the same size to tell you what the Euro equivalent is. For what it's worth, my US 13 boats equate to a 48 in Euro (most shoes).

One note on the 376's - I believe the soles are only drilled for LOOK cleats (3-hole). Id you are planning on using another system (SPD/SPD-R, Time, etc) you will have an incompatibility issue.

Hope this is helpful.

Mike

I bought a pair of these shoes through Supergo at approx 50% off suggested retail. They came quickly and I was using them in no time. The euro size 45 matches the US 10.5. I put a thin foam pad under the removable insole to eliminate a little wiggle room that I was not comfortable. It did the trick, but you have to be a little cautious with mail order shoe purchases. Get a sense of your size before you order by trying on a few pair at a local bike shop. I noticed in Supergo's last mailing that they were down in size selection.
A funny thing happened to one of the shoes. I noticed a slight deformation of the toe shape. It kind of went crinkly on me. It is all man made material and I would have thought pretty stable. I am wondering if it got some direct sun in the back of the car, or what? I'm planning to put a shoe tree in it to try to retain the original shape. No blisters yet, however. Anyway, not to deter you. I like the shoes. They are light, cool, and work great with my LOOK pedals.
They are goodvram

My GF bough a pair of AP376 carbon from supergo.com, and she likes them. They are stiff, comfy and relatively light.They are built well and will last.

Do you search on the net for shoe size conversion and you will find something relevant. Goodluck!
