The Bad: -A little warm

Overall Review:

I got lucky when I found these seeing as how my FiveTen's were needing replacing. I found them in a local store in the clearance section and I loved them the minute I stepped in.

The Pinner is incredibly comfortable.  The lining is similar to site shoes, which, for many, is incredibly familiar for many flat pedal riders.  The grip is great as well, being the exact same as the Links.

Using them on my pedals, which are missing a fair amount of pins, they have amazing grip.  I didn't feel like they would slip, nor did they feel like they gave too much grip, which was a constant issue with my FiveTen's.  The soles are stiff and that is something that I have constantly looked for in an MTB shoe.  These are also a bit cheaper than your average pair of flat pedal mountain bike sneakers.

My personal gripe with them, is they feel a little warm, but I'll wait till summer for the final judgement on how that goes.  Also, the lack of water-proofing, due to the canvas, makes me a little nervous to ride muddy trails with them.  But, once again, I'll wait till spring to find out just how good or bad they might be when it comes to this.

Overall, I think I found my new all around sneaker.  Just after the first day I found myself pleasantly surprised with them and very happy to be using Teva shoes.

Miscellaneous Some people ride their bikes off the trail and straight onto the podium to celebrate a win. Others ride them off the trail and straight to a tailgate to celebrate the ride. The Pinner is for the second group. Its sole was designed to integrate with a bike pedal and it’s packed with all the cushioning you need, but it’s got the look of a shoe you’d wear on a night out with your buddies.
Price $90.00
