The BG Trails shoes look interesting. I had 2 pair of BG comps and they are totally not made for hiking, downright dangerous on rocks. Probably a nice race shoe though...I don't race and the buckles were a weak point. Looks like the Trail's just have velcro- nice.deoreo said:I've been thinking about getting a pair of the Specialized BG Trail 110 Shoes:
But I like 3/4 cuff shoes. I currently use a 3/4 shoe with flats for freeride-ish stuff, and the trail 110's look cool for the trail bike with SPD's.
Those Lake MX165's look really nice, too.
I just picked up a pair of these on closeout at my local shop. Pretty cheap considering the regular price on them. I think they are the same next year as well, so I'm not sure why they are blowing them out.Danimal1 said:These are the best shoes I have found so far. Carbon Sole, reinforced toe box, rubber sole that grips on rocks, and a neat shoe cover.
Downsides? Not cheap and they could be a bit wider.
