“Best Impact yet?”

The Good: Same great sticky rubber and solid toe box as the "regular" Impacts, much better lacing system

The Bad: White gets dirty? Oh, I liked the tongue of the Impacts better, this one is more traditional.

Overall Review: I was an early adopter of the original Impacts way back when. The second generation looked great, but didn't live up to the original, particularly because I continually snapped the cheesy lacing tabs and had to cut my own holes in the upper in order to properly tie my shoes. This pair has nice, solid lacing tabs that won't rip when I snug them up, good stuff.

“Run a little big”

The Good: Super sticky, stiff, good looking

The Bad: Run a little big

Overall Review: I have a set of the five-ten impacts, the same design this is based off of, and they are size 13 and my toes are to the end. I am a size 14 most of the time. I bought the size 13 for the impacts b/c I wanted a tighter shoe to ride in and two that was the biggest size they had. So I bought the Sam Hill version in a size 13 and they are a size larger than the impacts. This is perfect for walking around in but give a little more room for my foot to move around in while riding. I guess the importance of this info is if you are ordering online and cant try the shoes on.

“my favorite shoe”

The Good: sticky, comfy and looks cool

The Bad: haven't found any.

Overall Review: if you ride flat pedals and want a low top shoe, this is it.. no question. if you're cheap and against any sort of color get the plain black ones.
