I bought these shoes mostly for bike commuting on my hybrid and have only used them for about 2 weeks. They are still "off-gassing" - a strong plastic smell which I hope will abate over time. I'm used to my old leather Carnacs, so this is a big change in materials. I noted above that the tongue is long/stiff and actually is annoying because I wear short cycling socks. Otherwise, good fit, good adjustments, solid shoe.

i've had these for a about a month now but waited to use them during a race to finally give a review. the temp outside was about 60 and i had wool socks. unlike others, my feet did not overheat, and i would say my feet can get hot at times. shoe does seem to be not so very ventilated but does just fine. comfortable to walk in, just enough extra room around the foot so it doesn't feel tight or like it may get tight. i use time atac pedals and they fit perfectly. not sure how these shoes will do in mud, but in sand, dirt and gravel they work well. i don't know how they'll hold up but they look durable to start with.
