I just rode my bike (with 2 kids on board) to school and then myself to work wearing these shoes. They are fantastic! Very comfortable, great gripping on the pedal, it's nice to have the stiffer shank for pedaling power, and they look great. Three people said to me this morning, "I can't believe you bike in those heels!" and when I told them they were made to be biked in, they were surprised and impressed. I've had several compliments just on how they look. I'd get more if they came in more colors. I love that they have a reflective strip on the back. These are great shoes.
