Poor quality
Used for More than 1 year
I have had these shoes for approximately a year and they are already falling apart. The quality of the material is poor and the velcro straps do not stay attached to the shoe. The shoes are reasonably comfortable but have been held together with tape and staples for the last month.
Response of the brand
Thank you for taking the time to review these shoes. This model has been redesigned in every aspect (upper, lower, out-sole, straps, footbed etc...). Each decathlon item has a 2 year warranty against manufacturing defects. Please send me a few photos of your shoes and I will see what I can do.
I look forward to hearing from you.

BTwin 500 cycling shoes
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very helpful staff as these are the first cycling shoes I have bought. Only cycle around 50 miles a week (at the moment!) so looking for a reasonably priced shoe. These tick all the boxes. First time out I had a problem 'clicking' on the new cleat but after a minor adjustment everything is now fine.

Fit comfortable and am getting familiar to wearing them,they are a very good shoe for the price which is reasonable
Not enough adjustment
Used for 3 to 6 months
I've used these for 3 months with SPD SL pedals. When I ride more than 20-30 minutes, my toes go numb. They are correctly sized shoes, and I do not overtighten them. A bit of internet investigation suggested that I move the cleats further back to just behind the ball of my foot. If the cleats are too far forward, they can cause too much pressure just in front of the ball of the foot, causing numbness. The problem is, there is no more adjustment possible as the cleats are as far back as they can go and the pedal axle is still in front of the ball of my foot. I don't think my feet are much different than the average foot so this is pretty poor for a cycling shoe that states compatibility with SPD SL. I am now going to have to replace the shoes as I cannot use them for anything longer than a commute.
Response of the brand
Dear Sir,
I can wholeheartedly sympathise with you. Numb feet can be very uncomfortable. Whilst it is true that moving the cleat back could help in some cases, it is also true that in doing so, you can alter your position on the bike thus making the pedal stroke less effective. Have you tried adjusting the angle of the cleat? This may help and I think that this film made by Cycling Weekly covers the main points very well: http://www.cyclingweekly.com/videos/bike-fit-and-maintenance/cleats-explained-how-to-set-them-up-cor... . Following any adjustment, it will be necessary to address your position on the bike (saddle height/reach). It may also be the case that this shoe simply does not suit your feet.
Either way, if the shoe is not the right one for you, please feel free to return them to us with you receipt.

Great shoes for getting into road cycling!
Used for 3 to 6 months
I've been using these pair since April and they haven't let me down once. I will admit that the size seemed a bit too big for my comfort, which would result in a loss of power, sadly. They're definitely great if you want to get into road cycling and wanted to buy something if you're at a beginner-to-intermediate level. I'm a bit picky when it comes to grip and these velcro straps aren't the best out there, but that's just based on my opinion. Other than that, I definitely recommend these shoes!
