Model/Year: 2017

Pros: Very comfortable with reasonably wide toe box and a slightly curved last which fits my foot perfectly. No rubbing or slop even though my foot is somewhat narrow. Sized exactly as my other shoes/boots. Really sticks to pinned flat pedals. Very comfortable to walk in. Not too hot, lots of protection. I don't use clipless shoes ever. Black with red laces looks gnarly.

Cons: Tongue on left shoe is slightly off centre but causes no problem in fit or lacing.

Recommendation: Highly recommended. Expensive but worth it.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: "Stickiness", look, durability

Cons: Need to tuck your laces

Recommendation: I really like these. They have lasted for several years and still do a great job of sticking to the pedals. Off the trail, they work well with jeans or shorts.

Model/Year: 2016

Pros: - Way lighter than my old Impacts - Stealth Mi6 rubber sticks like glue - Quick drying - WICKED Semi Solar Yellow colour - Two lace sets -- black and grey

Cons: - Cost (but they are so worth it)

Recommendation: I have bad feet and can usually only wear a few shoes (with orthotics). These shoes fit my orthotics and they were great right out of the box (that never happens for me). Plus, I got them on sale ($150 CDN instead of $210), so there's nothing better than that.

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Light, rugged, water resistant, wind resistant, VERY grippy, stiff sole but flexible enough for walking the trail too, big toe box

Cons: none

Recommendation: Love these shoes. Pair them with any flats with pins and your feet will rarely come off, if ever. Yet, you can still re-position your foot with ease. Sheds mud w/o problem. Might be too hot in some environs, but I have worn them from 100 to 35 degrees and have been fine with the right socks. I have the red and black and they came with both black and red laces.

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: unbreakable, comfortable, super grippy.
I'm wearing these shoes as much off the bike as I am off because they are so comfy. Recently banged my toe on a rock riding and wasn't even phased - the shoe nor my toe

Cons: absolutely none however I am told by other 5-10 owners they breakdown quickly. Hard to believe.

Recommendation: Without reservation

Cons: price

Recommendation: great flat pedal shoe
