    What's with that strange heel opening? They look like Birkenstocks.
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    I think it's a combination if the angle / framing of the photo, the lighting, and the back of the heel being black. Photos from the manufacturer look pretty normal. For a neon shoe, that is.

    Nice. I just tried on some RLs at a LBS yesterday, but all they had left was a 43.5, and my left big toe was just slightly pressing against the toe of the shoe (tried on in the late afternoon). They have a pair of RXXXLs in 44 at another outlet they're bringing in for me to try; at $312 (20% off) they're not cheap, but if I can find a pair of shoes that fits properly I'll gladly pay it.

    I wasn't even really familiar with Bontrager apparel until I bought the RXXXL bibs from the same LBS, and I actually like them as much as my Assos F1 Unos - especially the wide, no seam straps. Again, regular price would have been higher than the Assos so one would expect them to be good.

    I was debating buying a yellow pair of Sidi Wires...they are beautiful shoes. Went with white instead...went the safe route. I hope to get 5 years out of them and didn't want to risk getting sick of that loud color...
