Finding cycling shoes that fit me often seems to be a near-impossible undertaking. But the Factors fitted perfectly from the off and have continued to be comfortable for rides of up to five hours.

They have excellent ventilation, which I would put down to the soft, almost rubbery, synthetic Evofiber upper that moulds itself to the shape of your feet. The Supernatural footbed system also adds a degree of tailoring by way of swappable arch supports that easily attach using a Velcro strip.
