Very cheap, comfortable, look like shoes, not sci-fi robot feet.
Poor construction, heavy, laces too long, not very waterproof
These are pretty good looking shoes with a strap to cover the laces. I've had no trouble stepping into or out of the C.B. Mallets they came with, once I got past the "Timber!" phase. It's hard for me to judge the stiffness, as they are my first clipless. I can say that I've won a few beginner races in these shoes. Casual riders who want to try clipless or racers on a very low budget(like me) might want to check these out.
The bottom line on these shoes: Don't buy them unless you are mechanically inclined, because the nylon lace eyelets are destined to tear off. I suspected this as soon as I took them out of the box. It only took a week for my fears to be confirmed. Any sensible person would have returned them at that point, but I decided to keep them for the good of y'all.
I cut off the two middle eyelets on each side and drilled holes in the nubuck between them, and another hole after the last eyelet. This has worked out quite well, I think. The shoes fit more securely and the laces are no longer too long.
A bit on sizing: I wear a size 13 wide shoe. The size 48 enduros fit me comfortably. I could probably go a size smaller for less movement.
