    Strengths:    Looks great; nice for wide feet; comfortable; warm; water resistant; easy to install cleat; velcro strap keeps laces out of the way.

    Weaknesses:    A bit slippery when you use them to walk on wet places; *long* laces (though you just strap them down w/ the velcro.

    Bottom Line:   
    Fantastic shoe and an incredible buy. Not knowing these were cycling shoes, my wife and friends noticed them immediately and said, "Cool shoes." It's easy to install the cleats and there are no problems stepping into the pedals. I commute daily 16 miles roundtrip in the Seattle rain---these shoes have made my ride much, much more comfortable. They're water-resistant and so perfect for the drizzle. Like any non-waterproof shoe, they soak up lots of water when the rain is dumping down. I've used the shoes only during cold weather, but feel that they'll be comfortable for any season (esp. since Seattle is never hot). If you're looking for a great everyday shoe, esp. a commuter shoe, the AXO Filters are perfect.

    Strengths:    Comfy, stiff enough for it's type, easy to walk in, warm,(if that's a strength)seem well made.

    Weaknesses:    I'd prefer a scosh more room in the toe box, but that's what I get for buying sight unseen...

    Bottom Line:   
    I haven't added cleats to these yet due to monetary constraints but so far(I've used them only once)I like these: Purple Possum told me I'd be able to send them back for exchange but when I tried them on I was happy enough with them to forget that & just run out for a tv antenna as my cable had been cut off.

    I even showed them off to the salesperson at Video Only I was so taken with them...

    I may 'update' this item as I get more experience with them but I bought them for colder weather & their h2o proofness & have yet to try them out for that.

    I would recommend these for casual use(I don't do anything else so can't speak for downhill or jumping or whatever these were intended for)

    They are too warm for regular use for me anyway: perhaps in cooler places this would be a good thing.

    I think they were a pretty good buy for $40.00 shipped.
