Flats shoe for small pins/riders
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These shoes are quite comfy, even with a wide foot (12, 4E - their size 13 fits great). Their downfall is sole strength.
After two months, the sole showed very little wear, until flexing the shoe, where multiple tears were apparent. They are on the center, outside of the shoe, near the arch - where the outer pins make contact. My flats are DMV Vaults, which have fairly aggressive pins, and I'm about 200lbs.
For flats with fairly small pins, they'd be great. However, for more aggressive pins, they're a waste of money.
I'm currently riding Impact Low's, which have more reinforcement in the sole, and are holding up better.
