Fast and secure fit adjustments

The lockdown of this shoe is governed by the Fastlace system and a hook-and-loop strap. The Fastlace closure employs a cord lock and soft lace guides for fast and secure fit adjustments.
A heel loop is provided to help in easier on and off, while a lace tuck serves as the excess laces' safe keeper to prevent it from getting caught in the bike.
