    “Full-face Helmets for yer Feet”

    The Good:

    Classic 5.10 grip, massive padding up top and all around, don't even need to be retied every time you put them on.

    The Bad:

    Can be chunky looking, not the stiffest of soles, can act as kitchen sponges (pro?)

    Overall Review:

    The Line Kings are very versatile shoes if you want them to be; I've used them for nearly every kind of biking just to see if I could. They're best suited to the casual and gravity-oriented rider, who is wary of stubbing his toes on the trail. Seriously, these things have like 3/4 of an inch of just padding. 510 might be using us as guinea pigs for their prototype bullet proof bike shoes. I gladly support the United States bike-mounted police force.

    DH- These shoes perform best here, being as heavy and sturdy as they are. The grip is what you expect from this company. I am pretty particular about my foot positioning and these Read More »

    DH- These shoes perform best here, being as heavy and sturdy as they are. The grip is what you expect from this company. I am pretty particular about my foot positioning and these shoes allow "internal adjustment." Since there is so much plush padding in these shoes, your foot is allowed to shift inside when needed, given you tie them somewhat loosely. My Line Kings, by the way, fit perfect. This is not a feature created by my miscalculation of foot size. It should be noted that after longer rides I would find discomfort in the ball of my foot. These shoes aren't as stiff as they need to be.

    Trail- The heft becomes more apparent. Grip is pushed more to the limits here when consistent pedaling is required, but sprinting is fine. The foot protection seems unnecessary in this area of mountain biking. Also clips are really the solution here, let's be honest.

    BMX- Alright, I suck at BMX and all things trick-oriented. So I have no idea how good these shoes are for BMX. I don't even know why I have a 20-inch wheeled bike. But anyway, I think the sofa-like padding's utility returns here. Flipping around tiny steel vehicles seems hazardous to the feet.

    All in all, I love these shoes for downhill and freeriding. Truth be told though, these shoes have given me the itch for clipless pedals, even on a downhill bike. The soles are the main issue. They didn't give me quite enough stiffness to keep comfortable on longer descents. Also, don't go swimming in these things. You'll sink.

    “great shoes, basically a high top Freerider”

    The Good:

    grippy, durable, comfy, look good, more support than the freeriders

    The Bad:

    nothing I can say, I'd recommend getting Dr. Scholls insoles to replace the soles that come with them cause they are uncomfortable, in my opinion

    Overall Review:

    great shoes, get them.
