    REI Members get back an estimated $ 12.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    by fromso so These shoes are lightweight and well ventilated. They are nice for hotter environments. The soles are no more stiff than the Shimano touring shoes, which was disappointing and they seem to be difficult to clip when using an spd pedal.

    by fromBeware of the cold draft! These are good shoes, but have one serious flaw; the vent hole in the front of the sole. Shimano partially fixed the problem this year by putting mesh in the hole, rather than having the open hole found on the previous version (easy access for small pebbles). However, the hole yet remains. I don't have a sweaty foot problem, so it may be a great tool for those that do in hot weather, but my first cold weather ride resulted in near frost-bite on my toes by the time I got to work. Cold air just streamed in through the hole as I rode and left my feet chilled beyond any feeling. Since my winter shoe-covers do not cover the hole on the bottom, I was forced to duct tape...yes duct tape my shoes to prevent the cold air from getting in. The engineers at Shimano did their best to address the problem of sweatyfootitis that plagues many riders, but failed to make this an optional choice by providing a cap or some sort of plug to prevent cold or wetness from forcefully entering the shoe and ruining your ride. No one should have to duct tape brand new cycling shoes....no one. What a sticky mess to clean come Spring!

    by fromGreat starter shoes Considered the MB088 as well for a easy to wear, beginning road cycling (triathlon training, light commuting) shoe. Ultimately chose these because of versatility to add both road and mountain bike pedal clips.

    by fromSolid and stiff road bike shoe These are my first anchored bike shoes, overall they work great for road biking. There is open channels for air flow and the stiffness transfers power efficiently. Only missing one star for the fact that they seem to need foot beds.
