This shoe is a very comfortable product and is designed to make biking an easy and fun experience. They are well ventilated and do not cause the feet to become sweaty even when riding on a hot day. The design makes them versatile as they don’t look too strictly like bike shoes, it looks more like the casual sneakers.
The cleat however is not recessed enough and this makes them have contacts slightly with the ground thereby causing a sound that’s not too okay. For biking, this is not an issue at all but when utilizing them for walking, that sound couldn’t be quite uncomfortable at times.
Also, the lace retention system for the shoe does not make room for laces that are tight enough to give that perfect fit.
If you are into commuting around and you need a shoe for casual strolling as well as biking, then this offers a better buy.
