as a newbie into clipless, i´m impressed of the difference pedals (Look) and this shoes made to my ridings! Feel comfy of in- and outclipping after a few rides, and wondering why considering for bying this for so long time... I´ve broad feet, but the adjustment strap is a breeze to fit size- hello for a comfy ride! This system has increased my speed for at least 5- 7 km./h. The only change I´ve made, is adding a little black paint at the coloured parts.

Size, fit, value

Weakness:

None so far

I tried many different shoes such as Performance Primo, Lake Xtreme, Carnac, Pearl Izumi, etc. trying to find a shoe that was wider but not a huge shoe. These shoes are just what I was looking for! Nice stiff sole, velcro adjusters, wider toe box and no squeezing of my foot...so good I bought another pair as a back-up.

Strength:

Stiff sole. Simple fit adjustment. Solid construction. Easy to clean and dry.

Weakness:

Heavy. Basic cooling system. Fast wearing, non-replaceable sole grip.

A good solid road shoe for year-round usage in temperate or changeable climes. They''''re a proper road shoe and therefore are pretty stiff, which is a good thing IMHO. They fit my feet and the velcro is simple to adjust for thick/thin socks. In summer they can get a bit hot as ventilation is just a hole near the front of the sole. Since they aren''''t really racing shoes and aren''''t particularly light, it would have been nice to see some more grip. The heel grip is small which concentrates your weight when you walk (waddle?) and wears it down fairly fast. The large panels make the shoes easy to wipe down and dark colours don''''t show the dirt.

Strength:

Wide enough for my feet, and high enough for my arches.

Weakness:

You won''t impress anybody with these shoes, except maybe your wife, because you didn''t spend a fortune.

A great, inexpensive shoe if you have wide feet and/or high arches. I have tried sooo many different "fantastic shoes", that caused my feet sooo much fantastic pain... This shoe fits, it''s comfortable and it''s cheap. Can it get any better?

Save up more money and buy some other shoes . but if you need inexpensive shoes and don't mind pedaling circles w/ what feels like bricks on your feet .but w/a stiff sole . theses are for you

Strength:

Inexpensive, stiff sole, secure straps.

Weakness:

A bit heavy and somewhat hot. I didn't care for the blue nylon mesh. (A little Black shoe dye and mine are all black now)

There are better shoes out there but these are cheap and hold up pretty well. They look much better all black. I will probably upgrade soon, but these have put in 5ooo trouble free miles.
