    Strengths:    Although by appearance they seem to be quite narrow in the area of ball of the foot, They accomodate my size 10.5E foot very comfortably. Low rise prevents pinching in the area of the ankle.

    Weaknesses:    Removable (required) rubber sole patch leaves the channels for the spd cleats open and exposes the 4 hole cleat retainers for moisture penetration.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is my first time clipping in and so far I can't imagine why it took me so long to get with the program. Spending just less than $100 for the "starter" set of clipless equipment, I find myself very drawn to this shoe. For the money, you just can't beat them. Comfortable, stylish (they match my bike) and the shoe's sole is quite stiff adding to the comfort of the shoe as a whole.
