Strength:

everything, i absolutely love everything about these shoes, the lace cover, the amount of grip on the bottom. I also love how easy it is to clip in, and even ride with flats, the cleat doesnt get in the way at all.

Weakness:

absolutely nothing

Great shoe, i would definitely recommend them to anyone that ride AM/FR/DH

On my second pair , nothing wrong with the first pair ... just wanted them in white too.
Cheap , look awesome , better for us with wider feet, Lace protector keeps the dirt out , easy to walk in , no numb feet , cleat is up out of the way (shimano cleats) .

Weakness:

Sould come in a larger range of colours.

Strength:

the flat sole is nice for all mountain and free riding. easy in and out . many possible adjustments.

Weakness:

the cleats are not flush and tap when you walk.

fun shoes, they are the best of both worlds. flat like a skate shoe but rigid and snug like performance shoes.

Truckee Trash   Downhiller [Aug 22, 2008]
Strength:

Very comfortable, look pretty cool, durable material. Ankle protection and the shoelace cover are spot on. Good fit, as previously mentioned nice and wide for a big foot (12.5 - 13). Currently using them with Time Z's.

Weakness:

Velcro will kill the standard issue laces, insole is crap, need to replace with a more shaped insole as I have giant arches.

Setting up the shoe for non Shimano clipless took a bit of xacto blade expertise. I cut out the smaller square and then had to sort of continue to trim the area to get the cleat to really connect and hold when clipping in. First attempt with out trimming. . . I got clipped in, went for a little jump and feet came right out. Trimmed back the rubber sole and all is well. I would like to try them on some platforms to see how the grip is.

In a perfect world these shoes would have the 5.10 sole paired with the clipless/spd system.

I've been looking for these online everywhere and they never have my size. Of course when I finally call my LBS they have the exact size I want. I've only thrown two rides on them but I love em. For my use, fr/am/dh ish the flat sole skate style is much better and more applicable than the usual mountain style / xc shoe with cleats and a really hard soul. The fact that I can feel confident and gripped despite being not clipped in is huge. Of course, that only works with clipless pedals such as the Time Z, CB Mallet or Acid. . .

I'd give it all 5 out of 5 if did not have to cut the sole up as much, and more over if the sole was 5.10. Still waiting. . .

I would buy this for an AM rider, or DH 'er but don't think the XC riders would like it. Not sure how it will hold up in terms of comfort on the longer rides. . . this morning I got about 15 miles in, finishing with about 4 miles of climbing back up to my house, toes were numb.

stuart   Cross Country Rider [Aug 24, 2007]
Strength:

comfy and absolutely bomb proof so far. they come in a wide fitting unlike other shimano shoes so they suit people like me with boat sized feet

Weakness:

looks. they look like something darth vaders storm troopers would wear. have had a few problems clipping in and out i think that the sticky rubber sole catches on the pedals its just something to get used to. a bit weighty

If you are looking for a sturdy shoe that will stand up to being scuffed on rocks and grips in the wet these are the boots for you dont buy if you are a weight weenie

slimothy   Downhiller [Jan 16, 2004]
Strength:

at last a good looking SPD shoe that dosent cost loads like vans,lazy boy velcro flap that looks so smart,comfy and dont sound like tap shoes when you walk.

Weakness:

make your feet look slightly larger than usual,but that might be cause they stand out cause they are new.

Look the biz,on the trails and off aswell,comfy,cheap for what they are,grippy,great for the freerider and downhiller that cares what they look like,stop reading this and go but some NOW!

Strength:

looks, comfort, ease of use, ease of cleaning

Weakness:

still looking...

Unsure how the other guys are setting up the shoe without it clicking when walking ?? i still get this, but as i use it for riding it ain't a problem for me. Also little grip in the mud..again not a problem. A little awkward to do the laces initially until you get used to the flap, but once its on they are like a little velvet glove on the feet. Not too hot or cold, Stiff enough. My biggest gripe with the tahos was the rubber started coming off after 2 years (admittedly I clean with a scrubbing brush)these wont need a brush. Also the laces got really stiff and hard after being covered in mud, again these will not happen on these as the laces are covered.
Nice touch to have a loop on the back to assist in gloved hands putting them on. and the bike side is slightly higher to give more support but leave flexibility in the ankle to release in a hurry if required- its required a LOT !!!.
Good shoe - Good product

Luke   Weekend Warrior [May 09, 2006]
Strength:

Work a treat, clip in & out without a problem.
Look cool! Cleat is recessed in sole so no "clicking" noise when walking on hard surfaces.
Tough shoe, taking a beating and been covered in mud/dirt, yet a squirt with the hoses brings them up almost like new.

Weakness:

I have a small tear on the fabric that goes around the ankle from my chain ring, so they are not invincable!

Excellent value clipless or platform pedal shoe. Excellent shoe for freeriders.

Mitch Sievers   Weekend Warrior [May 04, 2006]
Strength:

Good support, perfect fit, don't weigh much, look sweet

Weakness:

Haven't found one....

Saw these in a few MTB mags and for the price and styling you can't beat it. I've only had em for about a month and have beat the hell out of em literally. I ride with egg beater SL's and i really enjoy them, would recommend em to anyone. I was sketchy about the velcro covering to hold the flap down but don't see a problem. I'll give it 5 big flamin turds!!!
