I had such huge expectations for these shoes, I guess I was bound to be let down. I just thought he'd do something radically good for biking like make them out of carbon fiber or something, or with ski boot style straps, or BOA laces, or something radical improvement wise..........

"whose world titles and viral videos have earned him the highest degree of respect". So I have to pay respect to the Gangnam style guy too?
Hiring some mtber for your marketing could be a good idea...

White soles, and in particular the stone coloured shoe, won't look "super clean" after a mtb ride. I would be interested in a black version with black soles or a darker coloured version.

Maybe you should try to wear them rubber side down. Then you don't have to look at the dirty sole and walk on the laces...

that 40$ is such a huge difference lol and really how you gunna say they are better when these literally just came out? personally I find vans are cheap because they are F*cking garbage.

I'm referring to their newest line called ProSkate. They look like a typical set of Vans, but they're legitamitely better. Removable cushion insole, thicker material, better stitching. I have a bad foot and found them by accident looking for skate shoes that have removable insoles.
