Like my Keen commuter sandals. They took a little while to get used to because the toe box is more narrow than my regular Keen sandals and shoes. But now I love them.

I don't know if those commuter shoes would work for me. I used to own the regular shoes they are based on (Austin, I think). I like them for casual shoes but think that the wider toe box would actually cause problems by either hitting the crank arm each time around, or if the cleat is lined up to compensate for that it would not line up right where I want it on my foot. If you use platform pedals and no cleats, this might not be an issue.

US made would influence me but I couldn't tell you how much until I'm actually getting ready to take cash out of my pocket. I think they would need to advertise this well because since so few shoes are made in the US I don't bother to check.
