Speed and Strength Run with the Bulls Shoes
This shoe is an average shoe
This shoe would be great for the beginner rider who doesn't want to spend a lot on hardcore riding boots. These shoes have the minimum amount of features that will get you through your beginner rides.

Over all a great shoe!
A great on and off the bike motorcycle shoe! Very impressed by the comfort and the protection of it.

Good for what it is!
I bought these as a daily commuter and so far so good. I wear jeans to work but didn't like changing out from my boots, so these are a good compromise. Right off the bat on my first ride I noticed the provided insoles were very thin. I purchased a more padded insole and that eliminated the "too thin" feeling and improved the comfort of the shoe greatly. There's ample ankle protection without restricting movement and the padded toe is a plus. I normally wear a 10.5EE, but the 10 is a great fit as the toe box tends to run a bit wide. I'm not sure how long the velcro strap will last as it seems a bit weak, but overall I'm happy with the shoe.

New favorite riding shoe
Style wise looks like a pretty normal sneaker. I bought these so I could wear them to work without looking goofy.
Protection wise these offer better protection then most other riding shoes I've worn. Obviously not as much as a proper boot, but this is a good compromise, both in protection and comfort as this is one of the more comfortable riding shoes I've worn as well. Also, the perforations in this shoe make it great for hot weather.
Overall this is a great shoe. At the sub $100 price point, it's a deal.

High marks for convenience and value, but remember, shoes are no substitute for proper boots.
First off, I want to make it clear that this isn't an ideal product for ATGATT purists. No riding "shoes" can substitute for properly reinforced, focus-designed riding -boots-.
With that said, I've come to terms with this fact and have embraced these for my short, light-load, around town excursions (pool hall, food runs, store runs, etc). I don't like wearing boots, so they save me the trouble of carrying sneakers and changing footwear at my destination.
But for longer rides or commuting, I recommend dealing with the minor inconvenience and going with proper boots instead.
Now, if you can look past the fact that these are only marginally better than high-top sneakers in terms of protection, these are exceptional in terms of looks, convenience and value.
The bottoms are quite flat, so arch-support shoe inserts may improve comfort. (I still find them to be more comfortable than boots though.) Toe area is padded/reinforced for shifting.
As for fit, I found that they run very similar to "chucks". You should be fine using these as your size reference when ordering.

My new daily wear shoe
These shoes turned out to be even better than I was expecting. The armor feels substantial, and the style is very cool. I was most impressed by the ankle mobility I have in these: Even though the ankle armor is nice and thick, and the foot feels like it is definitely not going to be pulled put of this shoe, the ankle still has full mobility. Most high top shoes I have worn make the ankle feel sort of bound to the foot as a unit--not with these shoes. I'm planning on getting more as backups in case they stop making them.

Bottom to soft
Bottom of shoe way to soft. Riding with them for only 3 months and I have holes on the bottom from my pegs. Now when I stop at a light my shoes stick to the pegs. Almost caused me to lay my bike down.

Nice and very smooth looking shoes that are quite cool temp-wise and look -wise. Keeps my Maxo's heat out quiet well. I'd reccommend these shoes. Actually a lot of people have asked me from where and i tell them.
