Pros: Comfortable. Solid feel. Toe protection works.

Cons: Bit bulky. Everything for mtb gear is expensive, but sometimes you really do get what you pay for.

Recommendation: These shoes have already saved my feet my two rides with them.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: Comfortable Great Grip Easy Clean Love the look Resist water on the outside

Cons: Terrible durability, thin layer of sole separated from the rest of shoe. The hardened material on the front cracked and split where the ball of your foot flexes off your toes, this allows water in the shoe. This shoe lasted less than a year. I went back to my Freeriders, the first pair lasted 3 years and they are still around. The reinforced toe sometimes, beats your toe.

Recommendation: I've been running these since the first week of Feb. and they are great. They are fantastic once broken in, it did take a little more to break in due to the material, but no biggie. My only recommendation or complaint is to make sure that they are a good snug fit, because if they're loose front to back, then your toe will smack the reinforced toe and not feel to good. UPDATE!!!!! I DO NOT recommend this shoe at all. The lack of durability and longevity of the shoe make this a bad buy. Will post a video. Sticking with Freerider or another durable type.
