Ion has been making shoes for four years now, and flat pedal shoes since 2018. The new range is launched today, and we have had the new ION Scrub Amp shoes in for a quick pre-launch test.
The flat pedal shoes for 2020 use a new ‘Pin_Tonic 2.0 Sole Concept’ sole. This has a new tread pattern, with positive areas on the heel and toe for grip while walking or off the bike, as well as being made with a new stickier rubber compound.

Also between the ground – or pedal – and your foot, is an EVA midsole for cushioning, plus an inner sole. Wrapping round the top of your foot, you get a textile and synthetic woven upper, which gets a layer of rubbery protective coating in many areas.
Laces can be held in place by a neat elastic retainer, which has a tab on it so it’s easy to get hold of. We’ve got the rather ’90s rave scene multicolour ones in to test, but there are plainer options if you want something a little less attention seeking.
