    Strengths:    -feel
    -insane grip
    -support (using good footbeds)
    -keep your foot in place
    -look sexy
    -are pretty tough so far (long term don't know)

    Weaknesses:    -only problem, is I wish they could make it a little more comfortable on the foot's arch, but this is only if you stand around on them for too long. While riding it is okay, and generally this is a small concern.
    -could get hot on those really hot summer days

    Bottom Line:   
    **I am reviewing the sixsixone 2006 dually taki version.

    Being honest here, I haven't use that many shoes before, so I can't speak for all the shoes out there. But when I purchased these shoes, my riding improved so much. Before I was wearing skate shoes, but these shoes........are a whole different story. They have the right amount of support, and suppleness, but also keep you foot in one place, so every motion that you do tranfers directly into the bike. I use them for trials riding, bmx, and downhill/freeride. The best shoes that I have ever tried, and worth the steep price tag. (they are true to size, just don't where a dedicated cycling shock, those are too thin) (I am also using these shoes with Sole Custom Footbeds, very important)

    Strengths:    Very tough uppers. Roomy toebox. Lots of lacing options. Relatively stylish. Lots of ankle support with an internally armored collar.

    Weaknesses:    Laces look like they'd be vulnerable to savage chainring attacks (I've had the good fortune so far to avoid such a thing)--pricey for a no-frills shoe.

    Bottom Line:   
    These are actually 2003 661 Duallies. These shoes are tougher than a bear's behind. They lose a few points in styling (where the Intense Team ceratinly beats them out) and price (basically all they are is a reinforced high-top skate shoe and they're a little expensive for being simply that). I use the Grip shoes alternately, which have a superior sole and styling (but cost 10 bucks more and are RARE). Failing being able to find Intense Team or Intense Grip shoes, these are the best non-cleated shoes out there. They don't REALLY make you feel "clipped in", but they do bite the pedal fairly well, offers scads of protection, and are tough enough that they ought to last a decade of freeride abuse (they beat the Intense shoes in this department). This product is one of the good ones.

    Strengths:    Very good ankle protection, inside and out, because of the neopren support inside shoe. They stay on the pedals well.They are very comfortable, except a little hot. I LOVE 'EM!!!

    Weaknesses:    They are kinda hot......but who notices when you are flying down a mountain???

    Bottom Line:   
    I would racomend these shoes to anyone who rides flat pedals
    I dont think Axo makes these exact shoes any more, but SixSixOne makes a shoe almost the same. BUY THEM If you like your ankles.

    Strengths:    Super Good shoe! The best shoe I have ever had. For biking and everything. Great for hiking, no hot spots. Hold up very well.

    Weaknesses:    There are 2 types of loops you can string the laces through. 1 set of plastic loops and the other leather. The leather ones rip. But the plastic ones hold up well

    Bottom Line:   
    Great shoe for biking! Sticks to the peddle very well and the protection has saved me many times. Over all Great shoe.
