Ratings & Reviews
A grippy and protective MTB shoe
These shoes have great grip on the pedal. They are super protective with a sturdy toe cap. They are true to size. I am a 12 in nike, addidas, asics. In a size 12 in Ride Concepts they are just marginally smaller, which i think is due to the solid toe cap. Well worth the money.
