Northwave Mission Shoes

DESCRIPTION

Northwave designed the Men's Mission specifically for freeriders. The X Power Cage upper and ankle strap provide support and a tight fit without sacrificing comfort, and the cleat-compatible Vibram sole grips while you're pushing back up for another shot at the tabletop.

Strength:

Good looks. Mine's brown and it looks pretty good.

Weakness:

Haven't found any yet. These are my first clipless shoes.

Good first clipless shoes. Cheap and cheerful. Hopefully they'll prove to be durable. Bit cold for winter rides though.

Strength:

Doesn't scream "biking shoe."

Weakness:

The insole is very thin. This is my first clipless shoe and maybe that's how they're supposed to be, but I have sensitive nerves on the bottom of my feet and the padding wasn't enough. A new insole from the local sporting goods store took care of the issue.

I was looking for my first clipless shoe that fit right, looked casual, and didn't cost a fortune. This shoe fit the bill. I like a little bit wider shoe and this one fit me right.

I've only ridden in these shoes a few times now (50 miles), so I can't comment on the durability like the previous poster did. So far, so good though.

Strength:

Good looking

Weakness:

The sole (vibram) cracked, the front of the shoes was ripped wery quickly

I bought those shoes follwoing a nice experience with earlier Northwave shoes, that I kept for 5 years. Unfortunately those ones did not resist more than 7 rides!!! First the front of the shoes cracked, the leather is really bad! Second the Vibram sole just snapped, and now the cleat is no longer stable. These are the worst shoes you can find. I won't buy again shoes from Northwave, where has gone quality in 5 years???
