I’ve really been enjoying riding with my Ride Concepts Livewire flat pedal mountain bike shoes. Initially I thought I was gonna clip in, but then decided to go the flat pedal route. I’m not that confident anymore I can clip out fast enough mountain biking. I think they look good, check them out:
Rubber Kinetics DST 6.0 high grip sole
Durable synthetic suede upper with anti-abrasion mesh
Molded toe and heel guard protection
D30 High Impact Zone Insole for impact absorption and reducing fatigue
Elastic lace tuck
3 Colors: Red/Charcoal, Black/Charcoal and Orange/Charcoal
I’ve been wearing these all season so far and like them a lot. No slipping off the pedals, and no foot injuries. The sole is much stiffer than running shoes, so they should be transferring more power. I can walk around in them fine, though I wouldn’t wear them for walking. So far they seem nice and durable.
Save your feet
When I got back into mountain biking, I started out just wearing some old running shoes. These worked fine, but eventually I hit my big toe on something. My nail then turned black over the next few weeks and fell off after a few months. It took a long time, and I didn’t want it to happen again, so I decided to get some real mountain bike shoes. You should probably just do it right away.
I currently have no complaints about these shoes other than they aren’t that cheap. But they are pretty cheap in the world of mountain bike shoes, so I’m gonna give them a full 5 stars. Get yours today on Amazon:
