Strengths:    Perfect fit. Durable. Stiff. Light enough.

Weaknesses:    Pricy, a bit cold as it's full of vents!

Bottom Line:   
You have to pay for quality when it comes to shoes. I first looked at the Sidi's, but they either fit your foot or they don't, they were too narrow for me. I tried on the Kameleon's and they were perfect. I had a crash where I my shoe slid along the road, and the is onyl missing a bit of the raised logo and some scratches to the buckle. I'll buy these again, or any similar spec Northwaves.

Strengths:    good rigidity and good ventilation

Weaknesses:    see bottom line

Bottom Line:   
The shoes slide on slippery surface - very dangerously! It is not possibly to pass a wood bridge of the only a single plate or log.
Insole loose its shape rapidly - it is made from textile.
When inserting the foot the insole is going.
After the first immersing into the river the strange smell became. It does not vanish after the several washing!
