    Narrow shoes (besides Gazelles)

    I should probably just bite the bullet and go clipless, but for now the strap rub between shoes and crank arms is driving me nuts. Couldn't really find much in a search about good, stiff, narrow shoes, and the ol' Gazelle standbys just don't fit my feets so well...
    What else have you had luck with? Something one could technically skate in as well (I only own/wear one pair of shoes at a time, usually)? Or, conversely, what's a pedal with a bit more axle length?

    These are way expensive for what they are but cheaper than going clipless.

    I wear Puma Future Cats, the sole is pretty stiff and they're really comfy off the bike. They also look pretty decent and have held up just fine the two months or so since I got them. They are generally expensive but I scored some new ones on ebay for $40.

    What are your current pedals?

    And yeah, never noticed how much kneesavers cost, that's just out of line

    I can also vouch for the diesels. They are super slim, but the leather is thick enough on the sides so they won't immediately be devoured by the clips. Although I doubt you could skate in them.

    Current pedals on road bike are some old Malliard CxC platforms, kinda similar to those MKS RX9s or whatever. I don't have such a problem with the Specialized track pedals on my fixed gear, as I think they have longer spindles. Yes, I'd rather just get some new pedals rather than the Kneesavers, but that is a good idea.

    How can you buy these when you know they'll get ****ed up in clips? Don't those run, like, $90+ or something?

    Mono black Chucks all the way.

    shoes will always get screwed up. i love chucks, but sometimes it's nice to switch it up with something that has some padding. besides, just because you're always on your bike doesn't mean you can't wear nice stuff that's kinda pricey (if you enjoy wearing it). i mean i cater what i wear to being conducive to not being uncomfortable on my bike, but i wouldn't not wear a nice pair of shoes that i like wearing just cause they'd get beat up with straps/clips.

    but as my roomie pointed out, men generally tend to be rougher on their shoes than the ladies. and wear them out much faster

    I love the feel of Sambas, but damn do I hate that tongue.

    I wear black and silver Pumas. I don't know what they are called, but I got them for 25 bucks at a Puma outlet. They are normally around 90. Nice.

    I posted a thread called "dope shoes for clips" 3 weeks ago.

    I just picked up a pair of these 2 weeks ago.


    The hard sole is good for pedaling.
    Narrow enough for clips.

    I wouldn't think these would be ideal for skate boarding, but they're doable.

    Low key. I like.

    Yeah, I was fortunate to get a pair with a "normal"
    tongue on closeout at Dick's Sporting Goods for $20,
    after a half-off coupon. I haven't seen them anywhere
    since then.
