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?ChrisISubscriber

Shoe tonge really thick and a bit weird at first, better after a short time
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.timmysSubscriber
How do people rate these Teva shoes compared to say Five Ten or Shimano shoes?
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.Posted 4 years agohugo runeSubscriber
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).Posted 4 years agoletmetalktomarkSubscriber
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 ….. 😳Posted 4 years agochambordMember

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.Posted 4 years agogus1Member
There have been some more put on along as you are a size 11! Even some purple ones – http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Teva-Links-Mens-Outdoor-Shoe-Brand-New-Ideal-for-Mountain-Biking-/111276811519?pt=UK_Other_Men_s_Clothing&var=&hash=item19e89d64ffPosted 4 years ago
