    “Great shoe for many occasions”

    The Good:

    Solid construction, decent support, better looking (and simple style) than most other 'casual' SPD shoes, waffle sole gives plenty of grip. Like the extra velcro strap.

    The Bad:

    Can be a bit heavy compared to other shoes (Shimano's DX shoe comes to mind). No lace protection. No ankle protection.

    Overall Review:

    I've used this shoe for DH racing and XC riding for close to two years and have been very satisfied. The Warner is a fairly straight forward shoe with no problems at all. I've even brought these shoes to the bike park by accident instead of my 510s and did fine with them on flat pedals (just remove the SPD cleats) as the waffle soles provide great grip (not the insane grip of the 510 Stealth Rubber but the difference is negligible). Fashion-wise, these shoes are great with a pair of jeans or some MX gear, which really doesn't matter much but I know there are folks out there who are fashion-conscious in this sport.

    “Vans has done it Again”

    The Good:

    Extremely good looking compared to the other clipless shoes on the market, the strap is great and gives it a sturdy feel, reliable waffle sole, strong and stiff sole.

    The Bad:

    No lace protection, although i havent had a problem, some what awkward cleat position although you do get used to it, strange having to cut the sole when you first get them, had a problem with the sole breaking, but glued it back and no problems, quite heavy, no ankle protection, expensive

    Overall Review:

    A great shoe from Vans, as usual. Good looking, strong and bomb proof. I have a preferance for good looking shoes, and these fit the bill. They do take some getting used to and positioning the cleat takes some time, there are some build quality issues, but overall a good shoe.

    Miscellaneous The Warner is BMX racers and mountain bikers’ first choice in style, comfort, and performance for SPD compatible shoes. The Warner utilizes our lightweight gum rubber “Off the Wall” tread pattern molded to our performance driven SPD-compatible outsole. We’ve extracted material from key points on the SPD-compatible plate to keep it light yet stiff over the mid foot area while providing flex in other key areas. The upper infuses a blend of weather-resistant synthetic leathers and vented ballistic nylon mesh with a removable hook-and-loop adjustable tension strap. Our self centering gored tongue keeps debris out of the shoe while the molded EVA foam sock liner ensures that your feet stay comfortable and well-supported all day.
    Price $95.00
