    £27 on ebay in the funky bright grey colour

    Size 11 and 12 only. I’m normally a size 11 (trainers, boots,
    shoes, wellies), just Salomons that I need to size up a half size on. Don’t have any MTB specific shoes yet, do I need to size up for these or should an 11 fit?

    Normally an 8 in specialized – wear Teva 8
    Shoe tonge really thick and a bit weird at first, better after a short time

    I ordered my usual size and they fitted fine although they are quite a snug fit width wise, so if you have very wide feet they may pinch a bit.

    Ditto this. The tongue makes them feel like a tight fit as they go on but once on they feel fine, and keep your feet pretty warm.

    I have the ‘mid’ boot black versions.

    They keep my feet dry and very warm, even in the current shite.

    You might still find some Sombrio X-Shazams, they’re long gone in the more common sizes but they’re the best winter flat shoes I’ve tried- warm, fairly water resistant, all round good eggs. Love mine, I’d buy another set (or 2) in a flash if I could.

    Good spot, if they are your size!

    Pair ordered…

    Well that’s a damn shame, shouldn’t have done a PSA! Never got a chance to buy one

    The black mids are pretty cheap too from the same seller, under £35. Would prefer black lows though

    Cheers OP, I got a bargain, sorry to hear you missed out yourself 🙁

    They have more listed but slightly more expensive at £29.99 delivered.

    Been looking for a pair in the sales as a spare pair, not my 1st choice colour wise but at that price was a no brainer.

    I’ve just bought them at the relisted price, only £3 more, I can live with that, still a bargain

    Good shoes. Well made, comfy and grippy (although not as grippy as FiveTens), bargain at those prices.

    I bet they’re wondering where all the business suddenly came from!

    Pleased everyone’s benefitted, roll on the next PSA

    I’ve had a pair of the Lunar Rock low Links for ages and they are brilliant, but am only a 9 so couldn’t take advantage of the PSA. Thought I’d try a pair of mids and this PSA reminded that Rutland had them for a smidgen over £40, after Quidco. Just ordered.

    How do people rate these Teva shoes compared to say Five Ten or Shimano shoes?

    Premier Icon mcnultycop

    I’ve only had the Tevas but they grip my superstar pedals nicely, but allow you to adjust foot position if you want to.

    They are terrible if they get water in the top though, but any trainer style shoe is.

    Teva links are lower grip than my Five Ten Impacts. For me that’s a good thing though. In combo with DMR Vault pedals I fine the 5:10’s too grippy as I can’t adjust my foot position whereas the Teva’s are spot on. Teva Links also look 100% less orthopaedic than 5:10 Impacts.

    Basically it’s all about the pedal:shoe combo and your personal grip preference.

    If there were any size 10’s available I’d be snapping them up as a spare pair.

    Not as grippy as five ten or Sombrio which are my only point of comparison. Seem to be holding up well under the current cycle of ‘complete soaking and mudbath followed by drying on central heating boiler followed by complete soaking’ etc. you get the idea.

    I’ve got the Links and the Pivot (SPD ones) and rate both of them really highly. The Pivots are awesome – replaced my shimano DXs …and they look good too!

    As far as Teva not doing bike shoes anymore – i’ve just been on the Teva website – under ‘Bike’ and they have about 10 different styles – seem to be expanding their range if anything.

    I got mine direct from Teva USA as they’d charge double down in Oz land (if there was a local distributor).

    My Links have just arrived.

    First impressions are good.

    The tongue is short but not a limiting factor.

    Fit wise is snug. I debated sizing up to a 12 as I am a std 11 11.5 at a push.

    The is a huge amount of padding in these – feels kind of like your feet are being hugged!

    Will try them for general walking/posing ut will be using them on the bike as well.

    Just need some flat pedals now ….. 😳

    My Links have just arrived.

    Just got mine too – first impressions are similar to the above, they seem very well made and they are reasonably snug. Haven’t had time to test them on my flats yet, but the sole feels much harder than the “stealth rubber” on my Five tens.

    One thing I will say is that I bought them with the intention of using them for riding and destroying them in the mud, but now I think I’ll be a bit sad to ruin the bright yellow laces.

    So would you say go up a size? I don’t think they do half sizes
