Got these for my girlfriend who had previously broken her foot when having to come off of a pedal fast in an otherwise minor crash. When I examined the shoes she was wearing, they were highly flexible running shoes and I immediately realized that this break would not have happened had she worn proper stiff sole bicycle shoes. They arrived in a couple of days from Performance Bicycle and they are perfect - true to size, very stiff soled and relatively stiff upper too. The sole is grippy and they are an attractive bike shoe. There is absolutely no way she would have been injured had she been wearing these.
Bought them for my wife, she loves them. The colors match her grips and petals. She has another pair of well known mountain bike flat shoes and these are just as good. We now both have a pair of these ride concepts mountain bike shoes and we would definitely buy them again.
