Title says it all. I need some new riding kicks. Suggestions? And keep in mind, I hate that flat shoe waffle sole style that companies like Vans use. I want something with some foot support.

I have always been a fan of Adio, but want to try something else. How are Orchids? Osiris?

osiris's grip good and take a pretty long time to wear out though i can tell you that.
I have nike encore's and the sole wore out within the first 2 months but they still grip good and I can't complain really.
I was looking at the emericas on sale on dans they look good. And vans half cabs are cool too.

My osiris only lasted me about two months before they got holes in the toes.

Do you run brakeless? My guess is that is why they wore out.

No. I have tried them on before, they have that horrible waffle sole that I hate, and no support for my feet.

my 6.0 mogan mids have really good support, and should last for ages considering you run brakes, the little squares i have in the sole have amazing grip if you can find a pair of those, i run the lows and the only problem ive had with them is the little straps that connect from the tounge to the bottom of the shoe hurt my feet a bit cause i run shoes a size bigger, but i just cut them off and im in love with them, 6.0 mogan lows + JCPC's = best grip out

don't get etnies. mine had holes in them after 2 weeks.

try emerica hsu. I tried some on at my lbs and they looked good. they're like half cabs, but with a lot more padding and support inside, and they dont have that waffle pattern that you hate.

my almond defactos have lasted the longest out of any riding shoe to date. im not brakeless now but for the majority of it i was and im still using them with no holes.

stiff sole but very nice arch support and good padding. and they don't have that goofy early 2000's poof tongue on them.

my emerica hsu's were good like that too, not stiff though

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Osiris' grip good. My friend bought some loteks and we were in a rush to go quick and I accidentally put his on..magic grip on those.

They literately wrap around the pedals, as shown in the picture below:

no lie you will never wear out nike airforces EVER for all you brakeless guys. they have okay grip but i had some last year and they never wear down. they arent really bmx shoes but yeaaa.

|

7/17/2011 6:41 AM

Also, I haven't really had mid or higher top shoes since they were cool the first time (hint, think back to when LA Gear shoes were cool). I guess I am open to them, but not sure if that is what I want.

I just got a pair of Almond Defactos three days ago. the padding in these shoes is great! last night in ann arbor i dropped this long, tall 14 set and didn't even feel it in my feet.

they grip alright, just not on pedals that don't have a very concaved body, like they grip great on eastern crowns but so does everything else. and im with you on the style thing lol.

Yeah, although they were comfortable as hell and felt great, they just ripped where the soles meet the rest of the shoe by the end of the shoe lace
