Strength:

These shoes are primarily used for XC and recreational riding. Very light and indestructible, used for the last 6 years on 3 different bikes, top quality upper and durable sole area. Laces and strap hold strong and still intact and usable after years of riding. Internal shoe material does not chaff and is still completely intact and snug.

Weakness:

Shoe sole is very stiff; great for power peddling but not great for hike-a-bike on extreme up/downhill sections of the trail.

As soon as I destroy these, will definitely replace with a similar shoe from Lake.

Strength:

These are GREAT shoes. They are terribly comfortable, both in the pedals and out. They have good traction if you need to walk. They look decent and the shoelace cover on the 2001's are great. Haven't had any problems and would buy another pair for the right price... and these were definatly the right price!

Weakness:

None that I can speak of at this point.

Buy these shoes if you get a chance. The price is great and even if you want a backup pair of shoes to keep around in case your expensive ones break, these are great to have. Comfortable, sturdy, and practical.

Strength:

Price, Grip, Combination Laces/Velcro, Wide enough for my flat feet

Weakness:

Do not keep feet warm enough; FLip side is they get dry fast..

Incredible value; Great as a first clipless shoes; buy them, abuse them and then move on to a better shoe. Great for hot weather.
I'll probably get a warmer winter shoe.

Strength:

Good fit and style. I have had specialized and shimano spd shoes and the soles broke. They were garbage. These were $40 and look great, the picture shown is the 2000 edition. 2001 are black and have a lace cover

Weakness:

None so far. Lake offers a 1 year warranty so if they do have any I'm covered.

If they have any left buy'em

Strength:

Good fit, cheap, light, comfortable

Weakness:

None yet.

Mine are the 2001's that are mostly black (not a shoe for posers).

I bought these on closeout and thought I was taking a chance buying a cheap shoe. However, I am very happy with the fit (lacing and cover with one velcro strap work well), stiff sole (my C-Soles gave me hot spots), lighter weight, and value. Tried top-of-the-line Shimanos, but they are made for narrow feet. If I hadn't found the Lakes, I would have bought Diadora Chilis on closeout for $60 due to their excellent fit. The Lakes, at $35, are definitely a better value and, so far, are serving me well.

Strength:

fit wide feet! super hard to find shoes that fit me wide feets. I even have two different size feet (7-9) and this actually work for me. I think it's that laces thing. Still in great shape. I've used them tons. Did couriering in them for a year. No problems.

Weakness:

...the laces do get a bit pulled by the velcro, but i love the laces, so to me it's no big deal. They're a bit freakish long. Look like clown shoes, but they fit great. It might be the design, dunno.

These are a great deal. I've been using them for...5 years, no problems, fit wide feet, lacing means better fit. Breath well. yup, good schtuff. Not too great to walk in though, but they're for biking!

Great beginner shoe, right amount of rigidity, great traction on various surfaces when not riding.

Weakness:

None so far!!

If you are on budget or just don't want to spend an arm an leg for another MTB product, this is one shoe not to pass up.

Strength:

look nice...not much else

Weakness:

everything from not getting the shoe to tie tightly to weak straps/eyelets for velcro strap...My feet never were comfortable in thee things and when i blew the strap out there was no hope left...

if you want a shoe that is only going to last one season and you like wasting money...these are for you!
