Strengths:    Super comfy, super tacky rubber (great for scrambling up rocks in a pinch without slipping), stiff, great energy transfer, sexy.

Weaknesses:    Buckle system - more fashion than function?

Bottom Line:   
Never too strong a word to describe my Northwaves. Fit, function, fashion, flash. A great shoe. Multiple ways to adjust the fit.

Not sure about the buckle system though. Seems to be more bomber than that stupid Sidi rachet system, but as far as "micro adjusting" a bit of the mark.

Not sure how long the rubber would hold up if you tend to be a "walker", but if you stay in the saddle most of the time, spend the clams and begin your own love affair.

Light weight, durable (so far), great air-flow through the shoe, styling and appearance, adjustable fit

None so far

Bottom Line:   
These are the first mountain bike shoe designed for a woman's foot that I have purchased. Although my other pairs of Northwaves fit well, these shoes are exceptional. I wear the same size (38) in the Supercompact women's as my other Northwaves, but these fit much better in the heel and provide better support in the arch. There are very comfortable. These shoes have an inner, lace-up liner, plus 2 velcro straps, one with a snap-in gizmo. You can really fine-tune the fit and it is noticeable. I've also ridden with these shoes in major rocks and they soaked up the encounters with boulders lager and small while protecting my feet. Couldn't ask for a better shoe.
