    I do because mtb stuff is a rip off and source bmx always seem to have shoe sales on. Mine are lotek dan lacey signature and they’re great – grippy and a stiff sole with a thick tongue.

    Have dabbled, not with great success tbh.

    Lotek were ridiculously small for the stated size.

    Duffs had a very promising looking “60a” sole, made of tacky rubber, which tore apart after a couple of rides (good old CRC refunded me).

    Lotek came up big for me.

    I just check the skate shoe’s shops and see what’s on clearance at the time.

    I’m using DC nets at the moment (£25), soles nice and grippy and have held up well for the last 6-8 month’s. I had a pair of adio’s before but the soles were too soft and only lasted 3 months (riding 3-5 times a week).

    Only problem is they soak water up like a sponge so take a few days to dry out.

    when you look at the price of bmx gear in comparison to mtb.road gear….we are having our pants pulled down, or so it seems.

    I have Some Duffs 4130 High’s which I bought ages ago to use on my BMX/DH/Jump bikes with flats, they are great…. Padding around tongue and ankles, quite grippy, stiff-ish soles.

    But I started using SPDs for DH and have barely ridden the BMX/DJ bikes in the last couple of years, so I might just give them a clean up and demote them to pub shoes…
