I wanted a high ankle trail shoe and this was one of the few models under $100. Most of the other shoes were "winter" trail shoes ($150-200) but I'll tell you that with seal skinz or apir of wool socks I can wear these in Seattle rain and cold down to freezing easily . ..
Hi ankle is genius - plenty of support and no worries about bonking the crank arm. If somebody would make a dual duty running/SPD bike shoe with goretex I'd buy it instantly . .
I'm a true 11.5 and the Size 47 fit me with wool sock room to spare . .. If you're 12 or large then 48's your shoe
As of August 2010 Shimano's closing these out -- REI is sold out of them at $80 . . .JensonUSA has them for $70 in all sizes! Outstanding value . . .Outstanding shoe . . .
