Anyone tried these shoes? Pros/Cons? Your preference? I need to purchase new racing shoes. I've had my old northwaves for almost three years, they're still great, but they are begining to smell, and Its time for new ones. I'm a cat 3 racer, crits are my specialty. Any help would be appreciated...I don't want to make a $250 mistake. Thanks.

Try them both on first. I have had a pair of Diadora Mountain Shoes, and Northwave Road Shoes, but neither of the specific pairs you are asking about. I will admit that I love the look of the Veloce EV's.

But, from my expirience, Diadora's fit a bit wider in the toe but a bit narrower in the heal than the Northwaves. So that may make all the difference your feet need to worry about, and your wallet too.
