It's Gotta Be The Shoes
« on: February 17, 2012, 11:45:19 AM »

So I used the search function, and couldn't find any opinions about which are the best shoes for riding flatland.


Just kidding.  But here's an article I wrote about the topic, for those interested:

I'm a beginner flatlander so take my advice here with a pinch of salt but I've found the best shoes to use are five tens They're rock climbing approach shoes (not real climbing shoes, they look just like trainers) which have mega sticky soles. They feel so good for scuffing and dont have any weird cut outs on the soles.

Thank for sharing deacon.
i'm not sure that sole is good for flatland, at least not for me.
also, i think that the outer layer of this shoe won't last long for my riding style and possibly flatland in general.
