Pros: Light.
Break in quickly.
Good price.
Seem to be holding up well.
Cool in hot weather.
Solid under foot for hike-a-bike.
Compatible with e-Soles custom footbeds.
Neoprene lining, I have worn them with socks (unplanned) and they were fine.

Cons: Too cold for cold-weather riding.
The customized e-Soles are insanely expensive.

Recommendation: From trail riding to 24 hour racing, these are the best all around shoes I have used. They are too cold for night winter riding, but they are comfy in hot weather. They are shaped like a hiking show with great tread for hike-a-bike (think Nosedive at 24 hours of Moab) but they are also very stiff for pedaling.

Bontrager makes more expensive versions of this shoe, but for less than $100, I am very happy with these as my all-around shoe.
