If you love Van's old school style, but appreciate how amazing riding with 5.10's is...then the Gravel is for you.
The Gravel's are extremely durable, comfortable, and most importantly stick to flat pedals like glue.
I would say they have about 90% of the grip of 5.10's, but I actually prefer them as I have always felt 5.10's were almost too sticky.
They have a great, old skool, Van's style and are a legit alternative to 5.10's.
