Yay or nay?
As an alternative to a pair of Vans as a pair of casual shoes rather than for riding in to be fair (I ride clipped in mainly), though may get the occasional flat pedal ride out in summer.
I like the look of them, and there’s some good prices around at the moment. How do they size up though? I’m normally a 10 in most things, do they compare favourably to say Vans or Nike’s?Posted 4 years agonodrog2Member
I have the Teva Mid Links and they are comfy, tough and built to last. They take a while to break in but make a pretty good off the bike shoe. On the bike they work well but the sole isn’t as grippy as 5Tens (this can be viewed as good or bad). They can feel a little clumpy on the bike and I prefer 5Tens but they make a good alternative. Definitely better looking.Posted 4 years agoSimonSubscriber
I’ve had some Teva Pinner trainers (same sole as Links but suede upper) for a couple of years. Bought them to wear as riding shoes but coming from Five Tens I found them lacking grip, so I’ve just worn them as everyday trainers. Very comfy, and size up as you’d expect, maybe a touch smaller than Vans.Posted 4 years agonodrog2Member
Edinburgh bike coop have the blue ones reduced. Not as cheap as the link above though.Posted 4 years ago2bitMember
Cheaper again here – http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/teva-links-mid-shoe-black-id68383.html
No idea how they fit or compare to anything else as mine are sat in a local sorting office awaiting collection. Ummed & ahhed for a while then saw the Jejames cost & just did it.Posted 4 years agoRockapeMember
I have Shimano AM41 which I think are fab, but take ages to dry. So I have just purchased some links mids as a second pair of shoes to try and alway have a dry set. Haven’t had chance to use yet but the cheapest I could find them was http://bit.ly/1bc1zRk and that’s cheaper than Rutlands sell them on their own website.Posted 4 years agoFOGSubscriber
Bought some from Rutland a few months ago and at first hated them but I realised when I saw this thread that they have become the shoes I reach for first! Not as grippy as some but not so It causes problems. At the prices around at the moment they are a snip, I too am thinking about another pair.Posted 4 years agostevedeMember
This may be the reason they are now reduced http://m.vitalmtb.com/features/Teva-to-Stop-Producing-Mountain-Bike-Shoes-The-End-of-One-Story-But-Not-of-the-Adventure,603Posted 4 years ago
They were always lacking in five ten levels of grip but were great for drying out and being better at shrugging off a shower – now five ten have the elements range out they probably wouldn’t be better at anything apart from looking a bit less ‘special’ shame though, was nice for five ten to briefly have some form of competition.
