Cycling Weekly Verdict

At a slightly more accessible price than other models, the Northwave Evolution Plus shoes make an attractive option. The understated looks will appeal to more reserved riders and the performance is excellent. Compared to other options they are on the portly side and the slight fit issue I had makes it important to try before you buy.
