Strengths: Comfortable (wider toe box than most cycling shoes), looks (enduro), closing system, sole grip.
Weaknesses: None so far but they do run half to full size smaller.
I really like the more open toe box of these shoes which makes them more comfortable for all day riding. They breath well and the ratcheting closure allows for firm support of the foot helping provide good power transfer. The sole looks like a hiking shoe and has very good grip for walk-a-bike sections. And the look transfers well for after the ride.
I love these shoes. They have a very comfortable running shoe feel on and off the bike but still transfers power to the pedals well. No hot spots even I tighten the buckle super tight. The lugs on the sloes grip well on rocks and logs when off the bike no slipping or sliding around. I feel I can clip in easier with these shoes over my old shimo's, just seems you can find the cleat faster.
