    have seen some bargains for these at the moment. These are listed as a multisport shoe but what are they like for biking? Does anyone use them?

    I’d want a flat sole. They’ll work fine if you’re looking for a shoe to just pootle around in. If you’re looking for something that’s going to grip really well because of the 5.10 rubber, the shape of the sole will probably let you down: the back set of pins on the pedals will sit in the groove between forfoot and heel, meaning you’ll have the bulge at the back of the forefoot skating about on the metal of the pedal. Maybe.

    I was thinking the same. i was also wondering how much flex there was in the sole as i bet its alot flexier than freeriders for example.

    Yup, probably.

    If you want them for a tooling-about shoe that’s not too bad on the bike, and they’re a decent price, why not? They’re not going to be as good a dedicated bike shoe, though.

    i’ve had a pair, grip just as well as impacts etc.

    fall apart just as quick too.
