- Flats and minimalist shoes
I did a sort ride on flats with my minimus MT00’s, the pedals scuffed the sole up a fair bit (they are pretty soft) also I felt I had no support what so ever.
I honestly think you’d be better changin shoes, for the short amount of time it takes you’ll make it up by using the right shoes.Posted 3 years ago
Hmm, it was the Inov8 trailrocs I was thinking of wearing. Yes, it is a short course (just 10k of mtb), but the bike section is in the middle so will involve two shoe changes…
I have some salomon xa pros which will probably be much better suited to the flats, just a bit heavy for shuch a short sprint though.Posted 3 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber

I used Inov-8 trainers as my main riding shoe for ages. They were great.
Which ones Mike?
I used 2 older pair of Roclites (315’s I think) on Wellgo Mags.
They were worn when I started using them on the bike, but not excessively so.
They lasted 3 or 4 rides – obvious signs of distress after the first ride, holes in the sole after the third.
Mind you, I had washed them a few times. 😀Posted 3 years ago
I don’t think the mudrocs were minamalist (not sure as they’re not listed anywmore). Great shoe, but the issue with minimalist is the soles are thin and flexible.
I think if I’m going minimalist, then shoe changing is going to be a given. What I gain in pleasure by running in the shoes, I will lose when trying to pendal in flip flops! 😀Posted 3 years ago
