      by fromColor I don't have a lot of feedback regarding quality just yet, though they seem comfortable and fit well, however, it's worth noting that the picture is pretty spot on for the "red" version of these shoes. Consider them more of a Rorange than a red.

      by fromVery sturdy and comfortable These are great shoes that are really comfortable, but the sizing seems to be a little off. I had a buy a half size bigger than usual to get a comfortable, but still very snug fit. The soles are quite stiff, but not as stiff as a road shoe. The grip is good but chunky enough to not trap little rocks etc. I use these as a general commuting shoe as well as a mountain shoe.

      by fromComfortable, nice and stiff. These are far more comfortable than my last pair and fit far better than the many pairs I tried on. So far, on the trail they work great, though at the very beginning were a little finicky to get clipped in, but are breaking in nicely.

      by fromWill increase your performance Two years ago I got serious about mountain biking and picked up a pair of used Lake lace up shoes that were probably 7 years old. While worn out, they fit amazingly well and I rode better than ever before. The soles finally wore out so completely that I needed to get new ones. These seemed to fit the bill. I tried them on and they fit like a glove (though while I usually wear a 9-9.5 the ones that fit were a 10). Out on the trails they are extremely stiff and light as a feather. I live in Boulder and use them for everything from epic long xc rides to technical trail riding. The added power I'm getting is incredible. On hard uphill climbs I can really feel the difference in stiffness. It translates into climbs that feel at least 10% easier. It really gives you the feeling that the bike ends not at your foot, but at your ankle if that makes any sense. The black on black with gum soles looks great, and will stay looking great for years to come I'm sure, scratches seem to just disappear. My only complaint so far is toe numbness on both feet. No matter how tight or loose I have the straps, I'm still getting some. It's not that bad, most of the time I hardly notice it. It does seem to be getting better with time so it could just be that they aren't as broken in yet as they could be. This is a problem I never had with the lace-up Lakes, so it might also be to the fact that with straps, you will never get as perfect a fit as with laces. Something else I noticed is that while the toe box looks small, it is actually very spacious! The back and middle of the foot feels nice and snug, but the toes have some room to move. Is this contributing to numbness? It seems like it would be the opposite. I'm not sure at this point. In conclusion, I'm really loving this shoe. If you are at the point where your fitness and bike aren't making you any faster, maybe look to upgrading to a really good upper-mid-level shoe like this. I don't race, but if I did I'm sure these would work great. For a serious "weekend-warrior" rider like me though, the price point is perfect. I really don't think I could have justified spending an extra $100 for a carbon base.
