Exactly as expected.
I bought these so that I could unclip and ride just as easily as when I am clipped in and they work perfect for this. The rubber sole grabs the pedals as if they were platforms allowing me to drop my foot for balance when needed and then clip back in and cruise. I would have given them 5 stars if they were a little lighter but they get the job done and I find them fairly comfortable. Not to mention the classic Vans look is awesome, of course.
