I wear these shoes all the time riding now. The only exception if I am doing a long XC ride where I am clipped in. I wore Five Tens before and they lasted maybe a month before they started falling apart. I have had these shoes for 4 months and they still look fairly new. The soles aren't quite as tacky as the Five Ten which is nice because even though it sticks to the pedal you aren't "stuck" while you are riding. Teva killed it with this shoe!
