Strength:

Rigid sole, snug but not uncomfortable fit, great treads.

Weakness:

Noticed that it digs the back of my foot a bit.. but may be a size issue... Short tounge. Ugly color... =0]

Sweet for 50.00 bucks... Yellow may be the color of the tour's color... but it's not mine... Great for sprints and overall spinning.. Durable.. Definate keeper!

Strength:

Comfortable, Body Geometry sole creates a more powerful pedal stroke, looks good, secure.

Weakness:

Body Geometry sole takes a little getting used to, feels weird at first.

Body Geometry RULES! It takes a little while to get used to the way it feels, but once you do, you'll realize the difference. It has arch support like no other, and allows a more powerful and efficient pedal stroke. An all together solid shoe.

Strength:

comfortable, very breathable, fits like a sock so you don't slip all over the place

Weakness:

tread wore out quickly, sole seperating from upper already.

bought these shoes to last me a trek across the country this summer on my touring bike. worked out well considering they were my both my daily shoes as well as my riding shoes for 2 months. the tread wore out near the end and now i'm down to grinding on the cleat itself, but that's probably to be expected. very breathable, very nice for riding 8 hours a day in hot north dakota and montana summer weather. the neoprene tongue made the shoe fit like a glove, never had a problem with slipping or anything. never even put the laces on..just kept the velcro.

Strength:

Comfort
Binding
Aesthetics (no lurid yellows or greens)
Durable upper
Very stiff sole

Weakness:

Durability of sole, mine have cracked.
Sole becomes very clogged in muddy (UK) conditions.

Was initially pleased with the shoes for general riding, commuting, short blasts, but have discovered weaknesses when used in more demanding rides.

Judging from my experience and previous reviews the sole will crack, which is disappointing of a shoe in this price range.

Sole becomes very clogged in muddy (UK) conditions.

From painful experience earlier in the year I would not recommend for all day epics where carrying or pushing your bike may be necessary.

If I had submitted this review 4 months ago I would have given them five, but having used them on more demanding rides I can only give them three.

Strength:

Box end for toes allow for greater blood flow. Lacing great for people with narrow feet.

Weakness:

Heel composite may be susceptible to water intrusion and weakening

A very good deal at $100. I have a narrow foot,and the inner boot/lace combination helped cure a long time problem. Durability may be an issue over the winter months; will report back in 3.
