Strengths:    Takes a beating in mud, water, rocks, and hike-a-biking.

Weaknesses:    Surprisingly none

Bottom Line:   
Bought these shoes for a very muddy, wet, and rugged 3 day mountain bike stage race, instead of trashing my Sidi's.

Surprisingly, these shoes were very durable, ventilated well, and have excellent traction and flexibility for hike-a-bikes on all terrain. They did not faulter even when caked in wet mud. Sufficient stiffness in sole and reasonably lightweight.

Strengths:    Fit very well, nice velcro strap to keep the laces in check, stiff but walkable sole.

Weaknesses:    Not much ventilation.

Bottom Line:   
Haven't had cycling specific shoes in a long long time and I bought these on clearance because my feet were going numb. Rode today for first time in them. The soles on these were much pretty stiff and eliminated almost all of the numbness. Energy transfer to pedals was significantly improved, my feet felt like part of the drivetrain. But, shoes don't offer much ventilation, my feet were pretty hot and my socks got soaked. Sole is great for biking, Ok (good rubber, not slippery) for walking short distances and they look enough like sneakers that you don't look like a geek.
