Strengths:    I found the shoe to be stiff.
Great ratchet. Traction is pretty good. I got the shoes at 40% OFF which really changes my view of value.

Weaknesses:    A little loose, but that is my bad.

Bottom Line:   
Great shoe. I really like them - I might try one size smaller. These were my first shoes in 20 years. I came from the original Shimano SPD shoes from the 90's. I am very happy with the stiffness of the shoes. Adjustability I am pleased with - got exactly what I was looking for very comfortable. These shoes are so comfortable I actually forgot my socks one day for a ride - I did a 20 mile ride w/o socks and I cold not tell a difference - VERY HAPPY.

Strengths:    They Breath Well

Weaknesses:    They broke
Always feel a little loose

Bottom Line:   
The shoes feel comfortable but no matter what even if you get them real tight it just feels loose. They breath well so they are really good in warm weather but as it gets to be about 55 or below my feet get oddly cold, this could be a good thing or a bad thing or maybe i'm just a wimp. But the real problem is that they are breaking and maybe i'm being to hard on them but i think they should last more then a year but the top straps are coming apart.

Strengths:    soles feel good and strong. good cleats.

Weaknesses:    these don't really fit my feet well i suppose. the main problem i have with them is that they are somewhat loose, even though they are the right size. my heel lifts up off the foot-bed when pulling up on the pedals.

Bottom Line:   
if they fit your feet well, then get them, but make sure your heel stays in place.
