What shoes for flat pedals?
So far all i have been using are my old Nike court trainers. They look a bit silly out on the trails so i’m looking for some decent shoes to wear.
Five tens look good but they seem pretty pricey for something thats going to be covered in mud constantly and getting chucked in the washing machine weekly.
What do you wear? Are skate shoes good for the job?
Also looking for some nice baggy MTB shorts if you have any recommendations…Posted 4 years agoScapegoatSubscriber
Rollersnakes have a decent catalogue. Check BMX style rather than Skate shoes, more likely to have padded uppers and tongues.Posted 4 years ago
£40 seems pretty good!Posted 4 years agochivesMember
I got some Five Ten Spitfire Mid from CRC when they were in the sale – blimey, they do grip well. Almost too good, have to lift your foot off to reposition it. Teva links are good, but not as grippy as the five tens. The spitfires will dry on a radiator overnight, the tevas take a bit longer, but they’re a more solid shoe, so not surprising.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

You get what you pay for.
Sometimes. But with my first Five Tens (Basics) I got a supermarket shoe with a sticky sole. My Impacts fell apart too, they just took a little longer. The Sombrios work just as well for riding, have better bad weather manners, and seem better made- can’t see why I’d pay twice as much for what so far is an inferior shoe tbh…Posted 4 years ago
