Weaknesses: The sizes are known to be nearly a size larger than stated.
I got these mostly for riding about town or dressed in regular clothes. I normally wear size 10but got 9 after reading about size issues and they fit great maybe on the tighter side but I like that in a cleat shoe. The toe box area is nice and tight firmly holding my foot threw pedal stroak ,a problem I have with my cheap exustar cyling xhoes. They look sweet and are made from durable cordura and suade. No cheap canvis. They are warm. Surprisingly stiff sole with heal cush for walking. These are a bit heavy but then they arent race shoes. Ive thought of dremeling away some of the sections of the rubber sole...like normal cycling shoes to make lighter but why bother. I very happy that I can now go for a casual ride on my clipless bike without wearing dorky looking shoes. Oh,if you are a hipster these will be your excuse to finally put spds onyour fixie!
