After Some Work, A Great Commuter Shoe
I like that companies are coming out with this kind of product as more and more of us are commuting to work, school, etc. The Chrome Kursk Pro has a true to size fit with a bit of a narrow fit and durable upper and laces so it can last longer than a few rides.
The sole is decently stiff too, so when you want to hammer down, you can. At the same time, people who enjoy a softer sole should take heed and maybe look elsewhere.
As for the SPD compatibility, it has its ups and downs. I attached a Shimano cleat on there and it did rub a bit. But, most smooth surfaces didn't bother me much. I think a Crank Brothers set up may be best as the cleat is really low profile.
Overall, a good shoe, but it becomes great after you do your homework on it.
