Submitted by michael a Cross Country Rider from chicago

Date Reviewed: September 7, 2003

Strengths:    At first fit snugly on my duckish feet, but stretched to end up fitting pretty nicely, wished I would have ordered 1/2 size more than normal for proper fit. Very much liked the performance of the shoe until the sole delaminated on the heel of one shoe...1 year of hard use for 45 bucks, and lots of miles...not too bad.

Weaknesses:    Sole delamination

Bottom Line:   
Cheap, good fitting and ultimately disposable

Strengths:    Long lasting (over three yrs). Laces and velcro

Weaknesses:    Heavy shoes. Begining to wear out (again...after over three years)

Bottom Line:   
The shoes have lasted through a lot of abuse. Good value. Wish they had been a little lighter...but might not have been as durable if they were.

Submitted by Shane Sullivan a Cross Country Rider from Illinois

Date Reviewed: July 26, 2002

Strengths:    Low cost.
Great looking (not obtrusively loud).




Weaknesses:    Area around the top of the toes are starting to split but that's after 3 years.

Bottom Line:   
All around good shoe for the value. Besides the area around the toes durability seems to be very good. I actually plan on getting at least a couple of more years out of these things. Sizing is an issue though, they run small. If you are going to order a pair I would seriously consider a size larger. My normal shoe size is a 9.5 and the Inyo 10's are tight. But overall I really like this shoe and will consider another pair. I ripped the laces out and only use the velcro straps which works fine and makes it very convenient. I'd say these shoes are a buy, especially if you're on a budget.

Submitted by rod a Cross Country Rider from new orleans

Date Reviewed: March 6, 2002

Strengths:    good traction/comfy off the bike. adjustable fit with lace + velcro. have lasted very well. stiff enough.

Weaknesses:    lugs were too freakin' big to clip in easily. kind of an ugly color, a blue of some sort...

Bottom Line:   
i've thought of getting new shoes a few times but there's been no reason to justify getting rid of these shoes (yet). once i carved away some of the lugs (with a dremel tool) allowing better clip-in they've served my needs and were well worth the money - not a race shoe or top-of-the-line type shoe, just a solid value, reliable/durable/comfy.

Date Reviewed: February 18, 2002

Strengths:    Looks Good

Weaknesses:    They will come apart and seperate eventually.

Bottom Line:   
Stay the hell away from these. I do not care how cheap they are, they will explode on you in the middle of a ride. These things just seperated and I only ride weekends. If they last more than 6 months, consider yourself lucky.

Strengths:    price, velcro, easy clip in clip out

Weaknesses:    treads a little big, ut i could still clip in and out easy, maybe a little easier if i cut them

Bottom Line:   
these are great for kids my age (14) whos feet are still growoing and don'w wanna speed 100 bucks on shoes they will grow out of in a year, they work fine, but i think i have narrow feet, so if u have wide feet, don't get em, and get a size bigger, than u think

Date Reviewed: July 3, 2001

Strengths:    Cool looking shoe. Overly aggressive tread which looked awesome.

Weaknesses:    Very Uncomfortable. Nike Sizing sucks. Heard complaints of the sole coming apart...didnt have that problem.

Bottom Line:   
Really cool looking shoe but make sure to order a sizer larger. My feet were numb after about an hour of riding. I just ended up giving them away and Im going to try the Answer Speeder. Great value if you can find a pair to fit properly.

Strengths:    Looks good with the orange and grey. Functionality at low cost.

Weaknesses:    A little snug, but that's because I wear oversized sneakers.

Bottom Line:   
Looks good performs good. I recomend this to anyone. Just be sure to get one size larger. I also don't see the point of the Laces, Velcro does the job.

Submitted by David Fambrough from Plano, Texas

Date Reviewed: May 7, 2001

Strengths:    Work well w/my Shimano pedals -- easy to clip in and out of pedals; stiff sole; durable; easy to clean off mud; good overall fit, not as narrow & tight as my old Specialized shoes; good looking shoe.

Weaknesses:    Velco straps aren't as good as the buckle/fastner straps; not recommended for long hike-a-bike situations.

Bottom Line:   
Good shoe for the money. Like anything; the more you pay the higher quality and fit you'll find. But for the weekend rider, you won't find a better shoe for the money.

Submitted by Steve a Cross Country Rider from Woodstock, GA

Date Reviewed: April 12, 2001

Strengths:    Inexpensive.

Weaknesses:    One size smaller than the size as marked. Mine came without inside clete hole covers, and my feet froze on a couple of winter rides. The clete mounting surface became fatigued and worn, and the clete now rotates up to 45 degrees when uncliping. The laces are foolish. I have them tied loose under the tongue and just use the velcro to secure them to my feet.

Bottom Line:   
They're great if you don't want to spend $120 for dorky looking phosphorescent green and red shoes. Get 'em while they last at pricepoint.com, but buy a size larger than your foot is. I have another pair coming.

I've jammed my size 10 foot into this size 9 shoe for 6 months, and I can stand it cause I'm not walking or running. I had to shave about 50 grams of rubber off the bottom, inside sole in order to clip to Shimano or Bontrager pedals. The point at which the clip and the shoe meet has become so worn in 20 rides that I've had to locktite metal plates between the shoe and clete (inside and out) to keep the clete from rotating when uncliping. I had to fix a rotated clete during a race with a rock and lots of &?!@#%$$. There were no inside clete hole covers with the shoes, so my feet get really wet even without creek crossings. But, now they work OK, and I'm going to use them through this season.

Date Reviewed: March 29, 2001

Strengths:    Wider than average toebox was comfortable. Tread was good to walk on. Color was subtle-no day-glow.

Weaknesses:    Once I got ride of the clips that came with them and used Shimanos, getting in and out of the pedals was easy. Believe that the shoes are over priced.

Bottom Line:   
An average shoe for an average price. No better or worse than other shoes in this price range.

Friday July 9 we left the comfort of Lone Pine (never - ever eat at the Mt. Whitney restaurant) and headed for the Bristlecone Forest. At the end of t ... Read More »
