Here’s a brief post, as I can’t really review them…
Had a chance to try on Wölvhammers on Saturday. I wear a 44 in cycling shoes…in Bontrager, Garneau and Pearl Izumi…so pretty consistent. I do have narrow feet, and typically prefer the low-volume shoes. The Wölfhammers I tried on were a 44. They were definitely true to size in length–I would not have fit in a smaller size. On width, they were a bit oversized, but not huge. With thick socks, they would not have been oversized at all–they would have been perfect for winter shoes. So for length, I’d order your standard size. The pull-cord tightening on the inner boot is simple and effective.
Here they are, modeled with my sexy bare legs.
They have a ton of great features that have been prominently reviewed elsewhere. Here’s a nifty detail…if you look in the picture above, you can see the zipper closure that closes the outer Cordura boot. The pull tab on the zipper is velcro. That velcro tab secures in the outer velcro closure, so the boot stays closed once zipped. It’s a clever design feature. Close-up below:
They look very burly and well-designed, and have a spot for toe-studs (see below).
UPDATE: I am now advised that they will work with SPDs and Crank Brothers cleats. Great!
