Shiny New Slippers

This afternoon I got the call from the shop saying my new shoes were in. I went for the new Mavic Fury. They are super light and definitely draw some attention. Along with being super light they are also very comfortable. I tested them out on the trainer tonight. Not real the ideal way to see how a pair of shoes but right now it's all I got. I was pretty happy with how they felt. This is my first carbon soled shoes and I wasn't really sure how they were going to feel but they felt good and I'm pretty happy with my choice. It's going to be nice to have a good pair of shoes for this season. The yellow is going to go with the flatwater team kit. There is a yellow band around the leg band, collar and cuff of the arm warmer and long sleeve jacket. Here's some pics of my new slippers. I'll get a better review of them after I get some time outside and in the dirt.
