The Specialized 2FO Roost are for you especially if you are a Trail biker. Because the construction that Specialized has made in this shoe uses, first of all, its Body Geometry Fit technology. They fit your foot completely. But this version of the Specialized 2FO Roost includes a few more features.

The design is very clean. Reinforcement in toe and thicker heel, and otherwise only micro-perforated parallel bands. Tied with a lace and have an EVA foam midsole to increase comfort and better absorb each impact. But don't just think about tearing them up, because they look great to wear too.
