Strengths:    Fit quite well. Look good. Fairly light. Rigid sole

Weaknesses:    Quick release buckle is knackered after 2 seasons riding. Mesh material over the toe area very weak. Expensive given these faults.

Bottom Line:   
I would not buy these shoes again and I would not reccomend them simply because they dont stand up to the intended use for long enough and the price is too high. Ive had shoes cost half as much as these and less and are still useable. Unfortunately due to the quick release dissintegrating and the material at the toe area becoming holed these are not.

Strengths:    Great fit, positive ratchet, very well venting. The sizing on these seems to be a bit better suited for people with wider feet like myself. Much better fitting than the Shimano's I use to run.

Weaknesses:    Materials feel cheap but seem to hold up well.

Bottom Line:   
If you have wider feet and the shoes you are using feel to tight try a pair of these on you will not be disappointed. So far I love them......

Strengths:    Great fit, heel stays put.
Ratchet works well
Length of ratchet strap is perfect
Extremely grippy when walking up steep stuff
Very well vented


Weaknesses:    Very well vented, can be too cool for cold days.

Bottom Line:   
These shoes are fantastic. When I went clipless, I started with Time MXT shoes because they were available and cheap. I thought they were OK, but once I went to the Lizzards I couldn't believe I lasted with the Times.

They fit very well, plenty of width up front. The ratchet is great, the strap length is great (3-5 clicks and I'm good). Very well vented, my feet don't get too hot on long warm days.

Grip is outstanding. Just today I "walked" up a very steep loose incline while the others I was with kept sliding down. Same thing for mud.
