Pearl Izumi Octane Shoes

OK I know what you are thinking but I am not just writing this because I am a Pearl Izumi rep. I got my hands on the new Octane series road and mountain shoes last week and they are awesome. Pearl's shoes have been a little inconsistent over the years and even as a rep I couldn't always wear them. With a new focus and shoe design team the new ones are worlds apart and fit great. These both have a unidirectional carbon fiber sole and are super light- the road shoe weighs 199 grams in a M's 43! Anyway, it's going to take some time but hopefully we can get some traction in footwear again, these shoes rule.
