Compared to the sneakers ive been using for 2 years and that i cant afford clipless yet, these shoes are great, stiff and sturdy and not too flexible, and they have padding everywhere! They are a little tall, the ridge protecting the inside of the ankle is higher than most of my ankle socks but it has yet to rub or chafe or anything. The only con i can think of is that it pulled two pins out of my pedals when i first got these!
