Sette Outlaw shoes?

I've noticed these on the Price Point website for some time now. However, MTBR and other sites have them listed, but no reviews. I searched this site as well, and can't find anybody who has them. Unless my search was poorly conducted. I don't plan on racing. I'm primarily concerned with comfort and walking/hiking. I want to be able to hop off the bike, and walk around a while without getting sore feet, like I do from my hard ABS tread soled MTB shoes.

Has anyone on here ever tried these?

What's your opinion?

(Update: I just bought a pair. My opinion down below. )

Well...my "opinion" is that any shoe that is SPD compatible is going to have a pretty firm sole. They may flex "a bit" as 66 reviewed his Chili's. You're going to have to weigh how much walking vs. biking you're planning on doing. You may be better off running flatties with some hiking shoes.

My REVIEW:

Well, I went ahead and bought pair of these shoes. Even though I could find no other reviews, I liked the idea of a more comfy shoe for all around use.

Well, I was right. These shoes are very comfortable. Initally the insole felt a bit hard, but within one ride it started forming to my feet really well. There is adequate cushion all around for comfort, and the upper has a nice grey suede. If one doesn't like the insole, it can easily be slid out and replaced.

The sole is what I would call semi-aggressive. It's not a super hard fiber/heavily spiked sole like a racing shoe, but not squishy either. It's the hard rubber, with a fairly aggressive tread that reminds me of a regular hiking shoe. The heal of the sole is nice and wide, like a regular shoe, so these are made to do some hiking in with plenty of support and footprint, if you like. This shoe is definitely comfy enough to wear around walking for most of the day if you like, even though the sole is plenty stiff for fairly aggressive riding.

The upper does not have tons of ventilation, which may inhibit it's summer use in very hot weather. This shoe almost feels as if it was made for cooler weather, with a bit of off road adventure in mind.

Commuting with a flare. That's what I would say these are also great for. You can easily ride around town with this shoe, and wear it with jeans, and look as if it belongs there as a regular walking/hiking shoe. Then, on the weekends, go out and have some fun.

I've only had them one day, and already very glad I bought these. For $45.00 at Price Point, they are definitely worth it. One of the most inexpensive, yet quality made/nicest looking all around MTB shoes I've found yet.

They look like nice casual shoes, glad they worked out for you and at $45 you can't go wrong!


Just picked up a pair of these for $50 on chainlove last night though, so I won't be in the market for a while
