Bottom Line:   
These are my first riding shoes and I'm really happy with them. I'm not a racer and I don't do extreme technical riding so they're perfect for me. I ride with Time Z pedals and I've had very little trouble getting in and out. They do have good adjustability and have held up very well in all kinds of conditions. If you're looking for a entry into riding shoes you can't go wrong with these.

Submitted by Bob a Cross Country Rider from Paramus, NJ

Date Reviewed: July 14, 2002

Strengths:    Good looks

Weaknesses:    lacing pattern and the velcro strap always biting into the laces. Didn't work well at all with my ATACs, very hard to locate and clip in.

Bottom Line:   
Had to give up wearing these for trail riding because of the problems I had clipping in. No matter what I did, I couldn't do it fast enough for the technical riding I do. I found myself worrying about clipping in instead of the upcoming rocks and drop offs, and thats not good. I'm now wearing them as casuals. Good price, but for riding, only one chili......

Weaknesses:    They are kinda warm in the hot weather.

Bottom Line:   
Buy 'em! great value for the quality of shoe you get.

Date Reviewed: February 9, 2002

Strengths:    Look cool. Keep water out. Works for me.

Weaknesses:    can't think of any

Bottom Line:   
Looking for a good cheap shoe? Buy these. Nikwax 'em a couple times and you can walk ankle deep in lakes and if you're careful they'll stay dry. The treads are grippy and the soles are stiff. A good shoe for all day rides and/or in sloppy conditions. Not super light, definetly not for racing, but for every day people, they work well.

Cortez Colorado 2 Thumbs Up!

Just a "shout out". While in Durango last weekend and wanting to ride, I decided to head for lower ground (Durango "no-go"). Parked at Phil's world, rode 2.5 minutes before I "unintentionally" yanked my rear derail into my spokes. (C. King hub slippage). Anyway after realizing my skills [I]in re ... Read More »

CST Caballero Pro 2.4 vs. Kenda Cortez 2.4

I've been riding Kenda Cortez 2.4 tires for the last 3 years and have loved them. They were getting a little worn so I had intended to pick some up when Jenson USA had them on sale. I was too late because they are not listed on the site anymore. In fact they are hard to find almost anywhere. When yo ... Read More »
