I've have two pairs of these - both still going. A lot of mileage and they've always been good. Very strong and durable. I like the combination of a wide solid platform, and rotational and lateral float.
I'm not sure what the problem was for the previous reviewer who didn't like them. But I've only ever had the cleats pop out when I didn't *want* them to if the cleats were extremely worn out (which takes a long while, but it happens).
