Doesnt have all the support a race shoe would have but for kicking it all day with a bunch of buddies at a friendly pace, these shoes get it done. Stiff sole makes for a good platform on even small platform pedals. Little less breathable then most shoes out there but this is good come colder weather. Soles are ideal for hike a bike than most race style shoes. Great kickers even to wear off the bike as clips are low in the sole so its not like you are wearing a set of tap shoes.
