Weaknesses:    absolutely nothing

Bottom Line:   
Great shoe, i would definitely recommend them to anyone that ride AM/FR/DH

Strengths:    Very comfortable, look pretty cool, durable material. Ankle protection and the shoelace cover are spot on. Good fit, as previously mentioned nice and wide for a big foot (12.5 - 13). Currently using them with Time Z's.

Weaknesses:    Velcro will kill the standard issue laces, insole is crap, need to replace with a more shaped insole as I have giant arches.

Setting up the shoe for non Shimano clipless took a bit of xacto blade expertise. I cut out the smaller square and then had to sort of continue to trim the area to get the cleat to really connect and hold when clipping in. First attempt with out trimming. . . I got clipped in, went for a little jump and feet came right out. Trimmed back the rubber sole and all is well. I would like to try them on some platforms to see how the grip is.

In a perfect world these shoes would have the 5.10 sole paired with the clipless/spd system.


Bottom Line:   
I've been looking for these online everywhere and they never have my size. Of course when I finally call my LBS they have the exact size I want. I've only thrown two rides on them but I love em. For my use, fr/am/dh ish the flat sole skate style is much better and more applicable than the usual mountain style / xc shoe with cleats and a really hard soul. The fact that I can feel confident and gripped despite being not clipped in is huge. Of course, that only works with clipless pedals such as the Time Z, CB Mallet or Acid. . .

I'd give it all 5 out of 5 if did not have to cut the sole up as much, and more over if the sole was 5.10. Still waiting. . .

I would buy this for an AM rider, or DH 'er but don't think the XC riders would like it. Not sure how it will hold up in terms of comfort on the longer rides. . . this morning I got about 15 miles in, finishing with about 4 miles of climbing back up to my house, toes were numb.

Strengths:    ankle padding,support,protects, grip, durability, somewhat wide, great combo with their pedals.

Weaknesses:    the soles could be better and stiffer under the cleat for the drops over about 12ft, but then its rare seeing a 230lb guy riding like me.

Bottom Line:   
This is for the size 48, they are nice and wide in the toe area, I have flat wide feet so it worked well. I’ve been using these for freeriding and after a season of hard riding they are still in good condition. I did go through a few laces, make sure you get the heavy duty ones for boots or the Velcro will destroy them. Also I need a new insole. These shoes are good for hiking up steep hills. I pretty much beat the hell out of them. I wish the insole was a bit stiffer for the big drops like the sidi but these have the ankle protection which is cool in case you come unclipped in the air. These also have better grip and are more comfortable when hiking. These shoes work great when combined with the Shimano PD-M647 Pedals, which come with cleats that adjust not only up and down but side to side. If you have big feet this is the ideal set up, which also prevents you from rubbing your crank arms. You could also check out my channel on youtube which have a lot of videos of me jumping with these shoes on: www.youtube.com/bikemuscle

Date Reviewed: August 24, 2007

Strengths:    comfy and absolutely bomb proof so far. they come in a wide fitting unlike other shimano shoes so they suit people like me with boat sized feet

Weaknesses:    looks. they look like something darth vaders storm troopers would wear. have had a few problems clipping in and out i think that the sticky rubber sole catches on the pedals its just something to get used to. a bit weighty

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for a sturdy shoe that will stand up to being scuffed on rocks and grips in the wet these are the boots for you dont buy if you are a weight weenie

Strengths:    looks, comfort, ease of use, ease of cleaning

Weaknesses:    still looking...

Bottom Line:   
Unsure how the other guys are setting up the shoe without it clicking when walking ?? i still get this, but as i use it for riding it ain't a problem for me. Also little grip in the mud..again not a problem. A little awkward to do the laces initially until you get used to the flap, but once its on they are like a little velvet glove on the feet. Not too hot or cold, Stiff enough. My biggest gripe with the tahos was the rubber started coming off after 2 years (admittedly I clean with a scrubbing brush)these wont need a brush. Also the laces got really stiff and hard after being covered in mud, again these will not happen on these as the laces are covered.
Nice touch to have a loop on the back to assist in gloved hands putting them on. and the bike side is slightly higher to give more support but leave flexibility in the ankle to release in a hurry if required- its required a LOT !!!.
Good shoe - Good product

Strengths:    Work a treat, clip in & out without a problem.
Look cool! Cleat is recessed in sole so no "clicking" noise when walking on hard surfaces.
Tough shoe, taking a beating and been covered in mud/dirt, yet a squirt with the hoses brings them up almost like new.


Weaknesses:    I have a small tear on the fabric that goes around the ankle from my chain ring, so they are not invincable!

Bottom Line:   
Excellent value clipless or platform pedal shoe. Excellent shoe for freeriders.

Bottom Line:   
Saw these in a few MTB mags and for the price and styling you can't beat it. I've only had em for about a month and have beat the hell out of em literally. I ride with egg beater SL's and i really enjoy them, would recommend em to anyone. I was sketchy about the velcro covering to hold the flap down but don't see a problem. I'll give it 5 big flamin turds!!!

Strengths:    Moderately stiff, but walkable. Nice lace cover. Cleanable surface.

Weaknesses:    Uneven Ankle support.

Bottom Line:   
Its a freerider shoe with do-everything potential. I won't give it as glitzy a review as the other guy, but its a pretty slick-looking and great performin' shoe. Should work for racers to commuters and everything in between with few gripes. The price is right, too. I'm no Shimano fan, either....and these shoes are nice.
