Fizik K1 Uomo

The draw: Style, flash and flair

Fizik’s first stab at a tri shoe offers some great features but also lacks one key fit characteristic: The heel cup has a tenuous grip, allowing the foot to wiggle a little too much. Forefoot fit is very good, helping to overcome the heel cup. The sole has carbon down the center and nylon around the outside, which increases comfort by permitting the foot a little bit of give. Beautiful finishing touches make the shoe stand out among a sea of monotone alternatives.
