Pros: Easy fit, decent price, good and stiff. I personally haven't had any trouble with the laces or lace keeper.
Cons: Kinda heavy, at least too heavy for the soul patch speed junkies.
Recommendation: I love these shoes, they are durable, easy to clean and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who just wants to ride. I may not recommend it for someone who is serious about whining...I mean winning.
