Strength:

comfort

Weakness:

Sole bends when you tighten up the bolts on look pedals

Show fits fine bit the sole material is not tough enough for Look pedals. The plastic on the sole is pulled out when you tighten up the bolts. It is a shame because the shoe is comftable

Strength:

Wide toe box, stiff sole, arch support, price

Weakness:

Heel cup, an additional strap could improve fit

Wide toe box and good fitting shoes for the price. My previous shoes were too narrow causing numbness, the new shoes are much more comfortable, but I still get some slight numbness after long rides. My biggest gripe is the heel cup which just doesn't grip my heel very well allowing the shoe to feel a bit unsecure during the up-stroke. The dual straps are adequate but a third strap would probably improve on the comfort and feel. The heel pad feels very secure while walking but isn't replaceable. Still, a good value for the price.

Strength:

*Quality Construction
*Orthotic Insole
*Wide toe box
*Perfect fit
*Great looking

Weakness:

*Silver finish scuffs too easily

The Specialized '01 Comps fit extremely well, are lightweight, have a stiff sole, and look great. The orthotic insole provides excellent support and minimizes foot numbness. I considered Sidis or Carnacs but could not justify their cost. I enthusiastically recommend these shoes as I believe they are a pleasure to wear.

Strength:

-well built
-good ventilation on warm days
-very comfortable
-Body Geometry
-very stiff sole

Weakness:

ventilation almost too good on very cool rides- need toe covers.

This is a very comfortable shoe with good support and a very stiff sole for good power transfer to the pedals. The Specialized have plenty of width- may be a good choice if your feet run on the wide side (like mine do). The two velcro straps are adequate and I haven't had any problems with loosening during rides. The heal pad is a firm foam which is very comfortable when you have to walk in them. The Body Geometry feature in the arches feel a little wierd when you first put the shoes on, but provides good support when on the bike. Overall a very good product.
