Crankbrothers Introduces New Stamp and Mallet Lace Shoes

Today, we are excited to share the next addition to our shoe line, the Mallet and Stamp Trail Lace shoes.

Based on the same high-performance outsoles as our recently launched Mallet and Stamp Trail BOA® shoe, the Trail Lace range features a unique upper intended to provide everyday comfort and versatility. This new line of clip-in and flat MTB footwear from Crankbrothers is based on a fresh outsole design that prioritizes versatility, all-terrain grip, and rider comfort. Two unique uppers offer either a BOA closure system or a lightweight and breathable lace-equipped version.

Cam and Deniz reviewed the Stamp and Mallet Trail BOA for it's launch date last week and were impressed by the new sole design, which featured deeper lugs in the toe and heel for improved off-bike grip.

"These are the first shoes I've tested in a long time that I'm going to put into my regular rotation and I've ridden with them almost every ride since they arrived. Thanks to a new tread pattern, more flex and a new mould texture, the grip is great." - Cam McRae, NSMB.

Key Features:

Adventure-Ready Outsole Design: The Mallet and Stamp Trail Shoes are engineered to conquer the toughest terrains. Featuring more aggressive, deeper, and multidirectional lugs, these shoes provide enhanced traction across a variety of surface conditions, ensuring riders can confidently tackle any trail, even when hiking is required. Durable &

Breathable Upper Construction: Built to endure the elements, whether you're facing rocky descents, muddy paths, or unpredictable weather conditions, these shoes are your reliable companion for every ride. Strategic ventilation zones ensure breathability and comfort.

Light In Weight, Heavy On Performance: Careful use of materials and placement of protection result in a slimmed down overall weight without compromising function.

The Stamp and Mallet Trail Shoes are a testament to our dedication to elevating the cycling experience. These shoes are not just gear; they are a statement of commitment to riders who seek adventure and demand performance.

The Crankbrothers Trail shoe collection is now live at and through local retailers.

Cam or Deniz, can you describe how the shoes fit? True to size? Roomy toe box? Tight toe box? Thanks for any insights you can share.



Hi Mike, in the meanwhile, I hope this information from Cam and Deniz's review last week answers some of your questions. As it reads, they run slightly big, for some at least,  (I have a pair of Crankbros shoes as well as I sized down half a size from my typical 44 to a 43.5), because of the thinner ripstop material they appear to have a roomier toe box than the previous version. I hope that this helps, Mike. Thanks a ton!

From Cam: "Because the upper has less volume, while the shoes are the same length on the outside, there is a little more room inside. In the non-trail Stamp BOAs, and other Stamp shoes, 44.5s fit me like they were custom made. They are a little snug with a heavier sock and incredible with a slightly thinner sock, but both work great. Wearing the new shoes, the 44.5s feel a little loose, even with heavy socks, but the 44s are a little snug with thin socks. Both of these options work, and I expect the 44s will fit perfectly after some time, but neither is as comfortable as the 44.5 regular Stamp BOAs are for me. I have spoken to other riders who notice the size difference as well as those who don't, so your results may vary."



Loving the look of these more minimalist uppers.
