Looking for some replacements to my Specialized dirt pedals. When wet they absolutely suck. Looking for some options and there are:

RaceFace Chester $35
Specialized Bennies $80
Rock Bros $20

I am doing mostly XC and maybe some single track...Nothing too extreme.

I am just not feeling the 510s. I mean to me they are hideous. Lol. I am looking at the Adidas Terrex Trail which they say shares the same sole as the 510.

Agreed, some look like large versions of toddler shoes. I have about 6 pairs but my favorites are the Freerides which look more like Vans. But different strokes for different folks....

They do make some for climbing that are nice looking. Wonder how well they would work for mountain biking. The mesh ones I like alot. Look very comfortable.

Soles are too flexible. You want a shoe with a firm sole otherwise your feet will hurt.
