Instantly when unpacking the shoe looks like it is of very high quality. The workmanship is perfect. Visually, the shoe is rather plain. I wear the shoe in size 46 2/3, which fits exactly like any other of my Adidas shoes. I have tested the shoes on trails, in parks and on tours. After clicking into the Shimano XT pedal on my RADON Swoop I noticed immediately that the sole is incredibly stiff. Thus, I feel a much more efficient power transmission compared to my other enduro shoes. Especially on the uphill as well as on rough trail passages, this is positively noticeable. On descents, an incredibly secure and stable stand is offered. For me, the shoes are very comfortable to wear - no pressure marks and a very good lateral support. I was keen about the material. Even when riding in mud and snow I did not get wet feet. Thanks to this year's April I could also test the shoes at 20 degrees in the sun. The good ventilation of the shoes makes them very comfortable to wear. The combination of laces and Velcro has two advantages for me: I have no worries that it opens or gets tangled up in the chain and it additionally offers a super secure fit of the shoe.
