Pearl Izumi X-Alp Enduro IV cycling shoes hitting the shops at £110

Cycling Weekly Verdict

More noticeable than many shoes out there, the X-Alps are a great commuter/social shoe

    Great for urban use

Against
  • -

    Not very good in the wet

We’re getting a bit bored with white shoes, so step in Pearl Izumi.

The X-Alp Enduros look a bit like a trainer, making them ideal for urban use.

They handled mountain bike rides with ease too, although only in drier conditions as the sole tread wasn’t deep enough to deal with the wet stuff.

The upper materials are tough, and the fit, although a little small, was excellent.
