I often see questions/ comments about people wanting a nice all around shoe that is also well suited for biking. So I figured I'd share my experience with these.
Just did my first week on these shoes. I really like them so far. Comfy and not too stiff, but the sole is definitely thick enough to stay lively. Also, it has made my crappy MTB pedals much more bearable(reduced pressure points). And they are quite grippy as well. I haven't wanted to upgrade pedals because I always bump and scratch them at stop lights when I go to place a foot on the curb. This will be fine for now though, I've been needing new shoes anyway, so two birds with one stone!
(Yes I took off my shoe at work to take a picture of it for this post... )
