The Scattante Ferraci road shoe is rated as an entry level road racing shoe. I’d agree, but only in pricing. Several “racers” rated them as the best bang for your buck road shoe. This is what ultimately drove me to trying out a pair. I was undecided between the Louis Garneu CFS-150 priced 70 bucks more on sale and the Scattante Ferraci. The two shoes are obviously made to be compared to each other, but are not strategically prized to compare. I would recommend this road shoe for any rider, but it screams to the racer under a tight budget.
