I've been using the shoes for a little over a month and so far so good. my feet went numb the first few rides, but everything has a break in period. I like the three hook and loop closures with no laces. The second week on the shoes I did some pretty big rides with hike a bike sections, and they did well. The cleats are embedded deep enough so that you don't notice them when walking. The shoe had good traction, and very little heel lift. It even looks good.
