Decided to buy some actual MTB shoes. I’ve been using Vans to cycle about, but found on a recent ride in Formby that these simply didn’t cut the mustard. I ended up damaging my feet because they were so numb.

Five Ten Trail Cross Mid MTB shoe

I’d had Five Ten recommended to me by the owner of One Planet Adventure and I didn’t realise they were made by Adidas. Got these on Wiggle. They’ve got ‘stealth’ rubber sole to help with grip – they can’t be any worse than the Vans I was using. Looking forward to giving these bad boys a test ride.
