Pearl Izumi’s P.R.O. Leader v4 offers nice improvements over the previous model. The stiff carbon sole and asymmetrical closure combine for a comfortable cycling shoe with good power transfer. The two offset BOA closures really allow you to dial in the fit and easily adjust on the bike. The black/neon yellow upper is stylish and made us a bit more visible to drivers. The P.R.O. Leader v4s hold their own against other high-end road shoes when it comes to quality and price, but there is still room for improvement.
