I came over from road into the gravel and cross country seen in mountain biking. These shoes are amazing for the price point. Perfect combo of comfort and stiffness. Only complaint is you generally have to tighten them throughout the ride. As the material heats up it stretches a little so it will feel looser as the ride goes. Love these shoes otherwise. And you dont look like a crazy person if you walk into a brewery with them on.

Pretty good! Just not GREAT

Shoe does exactly what you'd expect it to do. Nice balance between a road silhouette and mtb sole. Only issue is the upper seems a little big. Footprint seems good and my heel is locked in, no slipping. I just have to really crank this shoe tight more than my Pearl Izumi road shoes. Seems like there is just a lot of volume in the top of foot area. I just wear with thicker socks than I usually use and then the shoes are great.
