Has anyone on this board tried Vittoria shoes? I am interested in the Racer model, but I can't seem to find much info or feedback except for Torelli's website. I was wondering if they were comfortable, and if they lasted. Thanks.

I've got a pair, but not sure which model they are. Anyway, had them since October and have ridden about 1500 miles since then. The shoes are extremely comfortable, lightweight, and ventilate well (not necessarily a good thing when it's cold ;) but should be nice come summer time). So far, they're holding up just fine. I don't have a single complaint about them.

I am starting my 3rd season with some Vittoria shoes. The uppers look brand new and the soles have the usual wear, but I bet I'll get another 2-3 years out of them. They seem to run a little narrower than Sidi and that fits my foot fine, but not sure if width is an issue for you. Bottom line, I would buy Vittoria again.

On my third season and they're great. Fit great for a narrow foot, ventilate wonderful, very stiff, light weight, and yellow, very yellow (but there are other colors, these were on sale). I wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

I have the carbon and 'all carbon' soled models. They feel wonderful, and are very light. I ran into problems, though, with long hard miles. My feet actually bruised through the soles, and my feet started aching. Now, this was doing high mileage, and long, hard rides like the Terrible Two. I switched to a shoe with a wider, thicker, stiffer sole, a Shimano shoe, actually, and my feet felt tons better. For shorter training rides, though, I still use them.
