Shoes for flats.
Very much liking my Sombrios- got a pair of Floats (summer) and a pair of Shazams (winter). The Floats are Freerider-ish, less grippy but they still hit that “grippy enough for Northwind not to care” point, like most decent shoes do. But better made, and a little less clumpy.
The Shazams show every other flat pedal up for the fairweather nonsense they all are… High top, good weatherproofing, flapped-in laces, material that doesn’t hold tons of water… Wish I’d found them years ago.
Still tend to use my Freeriders for racing though, just because the extra grip can be useful when I screw up.Posted 4 years agogaz552Member
Are they actually comfortable though..? I bought a pair of vans as a casual shoe to wear on holiday and it was like the soles wear planks or something. Felt hard (though the sole wasn’t really stiff), uncomfortable and didn’t feel like it supported my foot/arch at all.Posted 4 years ago
I just recently (in he last week) got a pair of 5:10 freerides and they are very nice and much more comfortable than I expected (surprisingly as they do have a stiff sole).sheepdip71Subscriber
