Strengths:    Good looks. Mine's brown and it looks pretty good.

Weaknesses:    Haven't found any yet. These are my first clipless shoes.

Bottom Line:   
Good first clipless shoes. Cheap and cheerful. Hopefully they'll prove to be durable. Bit cold for winter rides though.

Strengths:    Doesn't scream "biking shoe."

Weaknesses:    The insole is very thin. This is my first clipless shoe and maybe that's how they're supposed to be, but I have sensitive nerves on the bottom of my feet and the padding wasn't enough. A new insole from the local sporting goods store took care of the issue.

Bottom Line:   
I was looking for my first clipless shoe that fit right, looked casual, and didn't cost a fortune. This shoe fit the bill. I like a little bit wider shoe and this one fit me right.

I've only ridden in these shoes a few times now (50 miles), so I can't comment on the durability like the previous poster did. So far, so good though.

Date Reviewed: July 1, 2009

Strengths:    Good looking

Weaknesses:    The sole (vibram) cracked, the front of the shoes was ripped wery quickly

Bottom Line:   
I bought those shoes follwoing a nice experience with earlier Northwave shoes, that I kept for 5 years. Unfortunately those ones did not resist more than 7 rides!!! First the front of the shoes cracked, the leather is really bad! Second the Vibram sole just snapped, and now the cleat is no longer stable. These are the worst shoes you can find. I won't buy again shoes from Northwave, where has gone quality in 5 years???

Mission Peak PSA

Rode yesterday with a couple guys. The single track in the middle was widened and flattened to 4' - 5' wide with a mini dozer and it's covered with a good amount of loose dirt. Go easy on the downhill. The park district has been busy putting a bunch of barbed wire as well, including some on the ... Read More »

Vee Rubber Speed-R or Mission?

Has anyone used either of these tires for a rear tire? It looks like both would provide good traction and fairly fast rolling speed, and I want to combine it with a Nobby Nic 2.35" up front. If it matters for comparison's sake, I ride mainly in Colorado on hardpacked trails with varying amount of ... Read More »
