I looked at Chrome SPD shoes, but they have too many bad reviews for durability given how relatively new they are on the market. I wreck everything anyway, so I gambled on the unknown. Plus, I'm in the GMT-8 timezone, so there's some synergy there.
The DZR shoes looked normal and they clip in. I'm always looking for this combo.
I've had them for a couple weeks now. So far, so good. If they blow up prematurely, I'll be sure to report here.
Sizing-wise, they're the same as my Shimanos. I wear a 46 in both. Or 44 in Birkenstock. Or 11 in some shoes.
These DZR's are comfy, stiff enough, easy to walk in, and I like the sneaker vibe.
Cutting out the cleat space was a bit dangerous, but for those people that would buy these and not use the cleat feature (not sure who that would be since they have a world of shoes to choose from, but whatever -- stiffness, meh!), the sole is well-intact.
