Bottom Line:   
These shoes are very comfortable now that I've subtituted Shimano's thin insole with a meatier one out of an old pair of Brooks running shoes.
The soles and stitching have stood up well to over 2 years of the hard-baked Aussie red earth! Don't be put off by the whinging about wet weather suitabiliy; mine got soaked and caked with mud last weekend which didn't affect performance one bit.I hosed them down afterwards and they dried as quick as any other wet shoe.
Give the suade part a spray with a suitable leather protector and you're laughing.
In conjunction with my 747's they are excellent and they don't look like a bunch of posey, flash, racer-boy arse either!

when you had stepped on water, the shoes will sink


Bottom Line:   
for a weekend rider like me, the price is great and it's comfortable. it shimano can only make some plug under the shoes it'll be better.

Strengths:    
Was nice and comfy


Weaknesses:    
The soles got shredded after 7 months


Bottom Line:   
I really really liked these shoes but the soles just didn't hold up. The SPD jaws shredded the soles til the stiffening material showed almost all the way to the heel of the right shoe. I bought them last April and reviewed them too in the other Megagam section. Sorry Shimano, I liked it but the durability is not there. Change the sole material and I will buy again.

Date Reviewed: July 14, 1999

Strengths:    
Holding up well, good colors (no neon red or yellow like some other bike shoes), Good for walking.


Weaknesses:    
Sole not quite stiff enough


Bottom Line:   
I don't have expeirience with any other bike shoes, but they seem to be great shoes for the price. The sole could stand to be stiffer, but otherwise they are great shoes for a beginner or someone without large amounts of $$$$

Date Reviewed: June 7, 1999

Strengths:    
Looks, comfort


Weaknesses:    
The soles are falling apart.


Bottom Line:   
I bought this shoe because it was reasonably priced and didn't have any obnoxious colors. After about six months the rubber on the soles began to fall apart. They are almost unusable now and my local bike shop would not waranty them.

Strengths:    
Comfy (when dry!), strong,


Weaknesses:    
The weather!


Bottom Line:   
These were the only shoes I could afford at the time I purchased the bike, otherwise I would have maybe spent a little more. Great for the summer, but forget the winter season.

Once you get them wet, forget it.
When walking on concrete, the cleats scrape.


Bottom Line:   
For the money, thses are decent. They serve their purpose exceptionally well. Shimano has a great product here, just try not to get them wet.

Strengths:    
Comfort


Weaknesses:    
Flexibility


Bottom Line:   
These shoes are flexable. OK for casual riding but not the greatest for my occasional cross country race. I use these for trail riding and use Sidi Dom IIs for racing and hard training.
Still a great shoe for most of the time.

Bottom Line:   


Don't get me wrong, these are great shoes, but it always seems like at all the LBS's around, you can get something much better for only a little more money. In my case, I was hooked up so well, but if this isn't your case, get those crazy Shimano blue shoes. They are pimp.

Bottom Line:   


I've been using the MO 35 for about a year now and I'm almost fully satisfied. It's comfortable, has a good sole, and a more laid-back brown color, as opposed to bright red or whatever. My only complaint is that, even out of the box, my cleats were tapping on the ground. Makes me wanna get up and do a tap dance for Satan. Using this shoe with the '99 M535 pedals is an awesome combination -- I have yet to stash because I couldn't get my shoe out of the pedal, and yet at the same time I've also never had a shoe come out of the pedal accidentally, either. This is a perfect shoe/pedal combination. Five stinky hemorrhoids from me. Do it for Satan, baby!

The MO-35 is a comfortable shoe it also has a good entry-exit with the m535 pedal.(see my m535 review)it is not expensive. A very good deal for the money because it works well in all conditions.

I could not be more pleased with these shoes. They are incredibly comfortable. Not only are they very easy to clip in with, but they are great for short hikes. I rode forty something miles with these, no blisters, no soreness.
