Strengths:    Durability with a capital 'D', much better pedal performance than normal shoes, don't look stupid when you are walking around the shops. I have had these shoes for over 3 years and done over 4,000km in them and the only thing I've replaced has been a shoe lace!

Weaknesses:    Heavy, but who cares, there not a race shoe so the weight doesn't matter. The sole could be stiffer for cycling, but then again these are designed to allow you to walk around it so they meet the design brief perfectly. I have even done an XC Race (came 14th out of 39 people) in these shoes and it certainly wasn't the shoes that held me back.

Bottom Line:   
Great shoes for doing it all at a cheap price. Not a race shoe, but will handle most things very well. If you intend to do any walking at all, and want something cheap and durable then these are the shoes for you.

Strengths:    Durability. The velcro closure. Breathe very well.

Weaknesses:    None as of yet.

Bottom Line:   
Great shoe, very durable. I ride platforms, but needed a shoe for some support on climbs that didn't look stupid. Overall a great shoe. Excellent traction when walking. Velcro closures locking in the laces a must on any future shoes, hate when the laces got caught up in the chainring.

Strengths:    The color is not nearly as bright as shown in the pictures. It's really comfortable, particularly for my wide feet. And the sole is recessed enough so that my crank bros pedal clips don't click during normal walking. The strap helps to make a firm fit so my heel doesn't slip. Don't look too aggressive.

Weaknesses:    They're not as streamlined as I would like in my normal trail riding, but work great for around the town.

Bottom Line:   
Great for riding and walking around town. Design is subtle enough not to stand out as bike shoes.

Strengths:    velcro
cheap
walkable


Weaknesses:    no secret compartments or mp3 player.

Bottom Line:   
i got these shoes and pedals a few months ago and hills just got alot smaller. i'll never ride with street shoes again. you can walk in them and they dont look gay. rain & mud have little effect on them, and the velcro indeed keeps your laces safe. i've bailed 3 or 4 times, never got foot caught in pedal EXCEPT on a drunken wheelie (my fault).
