Strengths:    Burly & comfy shoe that can go from the trails to the post ride pub. Easy in & out with the top velcro cinch strap. Stiff for riding & flexi enough to get around town on foot.

Weaknesses:    Seems to kick out of spd pedal alot easier than my previous pair even after tightening the spd pedal tension adjust.

Bottom Line:   
The vans warner received some pretty crappy reviews upon it's first release. I took a chance on them anyway because they were online for a great price. The biggest complaint from the first release was the cleat position & the thin soles, where riders felt the cleat plate beneath them causing numbness. I was coming out of some very reliable but very beat up & abused pearl isumi select mtb shoes. Putting on the vans warner was very comfy & has a solid build. The cleat position was not an issue at all. Where i put my foot down with my pearl isumi shoes was no different than the warners. I spent many miles on single track with them & i experienced no numbness. I can only assume that after previous user complaints all issues were resolved in later shoe releases. This shoe is pretty quiet accept for walking across a black top parking lot. It has a nerve racking grating sound. On carpet, wood, linoleum very quiet. On smooth waxed grocery store type floors you may experience some ice skating maneuvers so be careful! So far this has been a great trail & post ride shoe!

Strengths:    Very comfotable, stiff sole, easy to get in and out of

Weaknesses:    The laces are very long which is a bit annoying

Bottom Line:   
Superb shoes. The laces are a bit annoying due to the fact they are very long. Holds up nice even though I'm giving them a hard time. Very comfortable only tight fit were they need to be.
Beats Shimano DX by a little bit.

Strengths:    This shoe is awesome. It's durable, looks fine, clips easy and protects the feet. I ride a mix of flats and SPDs, on all kinds of XC trails, some with rocky and off camber sections. I get pedal strikes and plow through a lot of rooty rocky stuff. No problems.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
These shoes are the bomb.
