Built like the race horse it is, the Vans Warner SDP Mountain Bike Shoe enjoys purebred status with classic styling that transcends fickle fashions. Compatible with two-hole-style cleats, the stiff-soled Warner can clip in for hole-shot winning sprints, or match up with platform pedals and send it unclipped thanks to a sticky gum-rubber tread.Stiff mid-foot area provides a solid pedaling platform without making the entire shoe feel clunkyVented ballistic nylon mesh for breathabilityRemovable hook-and-loop adjustable tension strapSelf-centering gored tongue keeps rocks ?n shit out of the shoeMolded EVA foam sock liner provides support and comfortTriple-stitched toe cap for extra durability

Strengths: Very comfotable, stiff sole, easy to get in and out of
Weaknesses: The laces are very long which is a bit annoying
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.
