Strength:

Price, comfort

Weakness:

cleat could be a little more recessed

comfy shoe, not too sure about the sizing though, i usually wear cycling or running specific socks with my shoes but these seem to run a hair larger than most oakley shoes. I have to have them really tight or it feels wierd when I bunny hop, like my feet arent touching the soles. Other than that these are super comfy. I can't complain too much i got a sweet deal on these, and for $45 i shouldn't expect a $200 shoe.

Looks like a normal shoe.

Weakness:

Heavy. Hot spots make it uncomfortable for long rides.

For the money, they're decent shoes. You can spend a hundred bucks and get a more dedicated mountain shoe but they may not be as versatile as these. They look like regular skate shoes since they're based of the old Radar shoes. If you have a road bike, you can use these also and not look too dorky if you stop at the local coffee shop.

Compared to other shoes I've checked out in stores, these are a bit on the heavy side. The cleat well isn't recessed as deep as I'd like either for a street-based shoe. Depending on the surface of the ground, you're always grinding your cleat.

The sole is a love it or hate it affair. It's a grippy rubber so on most terrain, you can walk around normally. But if you're hiking it up a hill, the street-based tread likes to slip.

The only thing I really dislike about these shoes are the hot spots. The toe cap isn't roomy enough and my pinky toes always feel like they've been in a vice on rides that last any more than 90 minutes or so. It's not so bad on cold days, but when it gets hot and your feet swell, they're miserable after just half an hour.
