Pros: Great fit.
Stiff enough to be serious, but you can shoulder the bike and hike in them if you have to.

Cons: Could be more durable.

Recommendation: I love these shoes. I have a hard to fit foot (wide forefoot/high instep) and the cut of these shoes plus the three strap closure works perfect. The only other shoes I've been able to get this good a fit are a wide SIDI that costs twice as much. These are stiff enough for good power transver but comfortable enough for all day epics.

Pros: Secure fitting. Good traction during hike-a-bikes. Stiff sole.

Cons: Looks are a little plain. The cleats seem to poke through the sole a bit so you feel a lump where the cleat sits. Annoying every ride, but you get used to it after 10 min. or so. Price slightly expensive for what you get.

Recommendation: I like these shoes but with a few qualms. They do the job and look decent.
