Fiveten and Adidas Reinvent the Flat Pedal Shoe - The Trailcross - Aug. 29, 2019, 5:32 a.m.

Yeah I wasn’t even suggesting BOAs really. Velcro I think would be alright or a combination. I was more considering something similar to the quick laces that Salomon use on some of their goretex offerings as I have these on my walking trainers and they’re fab. Can’t say I’ve ever had to do micro adjustments mid ride shoes wise on my mtb though having said that. Once they’re on I don’t tend to touch until I finish a ride. My weight tends to be down on the pedals rather than pulling up to even notice them loosening. I’d say this would be different though if I did more hikeabike but then walking in fivetens is a compromise in itself!

When will Adidas/FiveTen actually do some market research with their consumers to see what they want and what works best before making another god awful shoe that looks like it hit every branch in the ugly tree. We are not chavs or Olympic runners and we are not Lycra clad. Also new flash, shoelaces DO NOT work on mtb shoes. Sure maybe if you ride in California all year round but if you ride anywhere that experiences rain and therefore mud you’ll know that they’re useless. There’s nothing worse than having to undo soaking wet filthy laces when your hands are wet and cold. At least it looks like for once they’ve used a decent lace unlike my impact pros with seem to use ribbon!
