Strength:

Gonna skip to the WEAKNESS since it way outweighs and nullifies any strengths

Weakness:

The stitching on the padding around the heel comes into direct contact rubbing your heel.

Went out on a nice wet ride to break these things in. My left heel in particular started hurting. Just had to grimace and ride back home. 2 weeks later Due to snow couldn't ride til yesterday, went out forgetting the heel pains. Only a quick pre-work hour ride but still post ride soreness. NOT why I buy a shoe. Hoping duck tape over the stiching might help but I usually reserve duck tape for keeping old things I like together not alliviating problems in bad designs.

Strength:

Good buckle and Velcro system. Uppers wore well. Sole also wore well.

Weakness:

Sole starting to split from upper. Narrow Toe.

Decent shoe. Good buckle and Velcro. Uppers wearing great considering many Eastern mud/rain races. Pretty comfortable once I got used to narrow (aerodynamic?)toe. Unfortunately the sole is splitting from upper after one year and couple thousand miles, not bad. Will be trying Sidi's next.

Too narrow at toes, Not much tread on bottom

Too narrow for my regular feet that I have to sell it after one ride. size 42 equels to size 8, not 8.5 claimed. otherwise a great looking XC shoes with top-notch retention system.
