I think a great upgrade would be cable laces.
Not your typical Sidi cycling shoe. These are a flat pedal/skate style shoe made for Sidi by one of there partners. They are still made to Sidi quality standards. They have a lot of mass compared to orher Sidi cycling shoe but appropriate for the style. Work well with SPD. Regular fit.
Super comfortable. Best mtb shoes I have owned. Only 50+ miles on them but I love them so far.
Really nice shoe
Great product shoes came in a week and the size fit the same as my shoea
