Compared to the higher-level Tri X-Lite II, the Louis Garneau Tri X-Speed III Men's Shoes have a more forgiving, more spacious fit and increased arch support, so they stress comfortable expansion of the metatarsals and a wider range of tightness options in order to ensure comfort. Comfort is especially important when a day in the saddle can reach into the 112-mile range and directly precedes a marathon, which are prime conditions for swollen, sore feet. Given these properties--and despite a less efficient outsole and slightly heavier construction--the X-Speed III may in fact be a more effective choice for 140. 6 triathletes in the age-group categories looking to check off a bucket-list item rather than pursuing a career. That's not to say the soles aren't stiff and efficient; LG reinforces the nylon outsole with fiberglass, so it transfers power without the rigidly unforgiving stiffness of a carbon sole. While rolling out of transition, a heel loop and single cross-shoe strap help you stuff your feet into the shoes and cinch them down in one, smooth motion. The single strap also makes mid-ride adjustments easy as the day warms and your feet swell.
