The Good: Extremely good looking compared to the other clipless shoes on the market, the strap is great and gives it a sturdy feel, reliable waffle sole, strong and stiff sole.
The Bad: No lace protection, although i havent had a problem, some what awkward cleat position although you do get used to it, strange having to cut the sole when you first get them, had a problem with the sole breaking, but glued it back and no problems, quite heavy, no ankle protection, expensive
A great shoe from Vans, as usual. Good looking, strong and bomb proof. I have a preferance for good looking shoes, and these fit the bill. They do take some getting used to and positioning the cleat takes some time, there are some build quality issues, but overall a good shoe.
