Im not impressed by the CB1.3s..
Yes they do fit 1/2 large IN THE LENGTH!!!
but the are tight around the forefoot, tighter than the BFs
and the heel feels loose, had to tighten the very top/last eyelet, which no-one usually uses in most shoes!

Yeah Um if you want a good shoe and can get around the hype, dont get the CB's

to me the 1.3's fit perfect except a tad tight, but that makes them fit like glove, Yes the heel slips and it's a quick fix by using the last eyelit. but that makes it so you don't have alot of laces flopping around. and they are really breathable aswell, In the tounge area is all mesh, and under the Dragon X is all mesh.

I tried really hard to like the BCIIs, but I've since gone to the Ballistec1.3 and won't look back. I've got a pair of the Charcoals (summer 09) and I'll be picking up a pair of the Wimbledon Black/Mid West Gold (Fall 09) and the Obsidian/Green Spark (Holiday 09).

I don't think I'll be able to wear the new 2.3s...Those things look awful, so I need to stock up on the CB 1.3s while I can.
