Things we like here? How about that clean white and black Microtex styling, half-size availability, and carbon outsole? Dig the cleat positioning—it’s set a little further back than is traditional, which is easier on the knees and supports aggressive riding posture.

But of course, it’s the fit that stands out with these wide models. Fizik utilizes a whole range of design features to achieve maximum comfort. That black area on the upper isn’t just for flash—it’s adjustable and designed to support your plantar fascia.

You can also control the volume of the forefoot and the precise tension of the laces with Fizik’s BOA lacing system. When combined with the wide fit across the metatarsals and the higher volume at the ball of the foot, you end up with a road-racing shoe designed to keep your feet comfortable as the miles unwind behind you. Even better? The shoe also comes in knit.

Pricing for the Vento Infinito Carbon 2 Wide starts at $359.99, with a Movistar Team edition available for $369.99.

The Vento Infinito Knit Carbon 2 Wide shaves a few grams and ups the breathability for hot and humid road races but maintains the features of the Microtex version. Downside? It’s slightly more expensive at $379.99.
