Would prefer something with one big velcro strap, ideally both 2 & 3 hole compatible. Saving a few seconds in transition is not nearly as important to me as finding something that fits well. I have a really high arch (my foot looks like an upside-down U) so they need a lot of room up top too.
My old ones had a recessed cleat, the little loop on the back that made them easy to pull on, and 3 velcro straps that let me adjust the fit a bit. Loved all those features and would be really happy if I could find something similar. Unfortunately, these were also so ancient they're not even made any more. :(
And if you're still reading along - where do you go to research and buy shoes these days, especially in the time of COVID?
