Just rode Black Mtn and Avery Creek in Brevard, NC yesterday. Grip is excellent. I can't feel a difference between my 5/10 Freeriders or my RC Helions. Great support. Very comfortable. Love the interior lined with thinsulate. When we got near the bottom of our run, the rain picked up and things got sloppy. Shoes were covered in water/mud....but my feet never got wet. Once they dried, very easy to clean up and look like new. Only problem I found was the reflective material around the heel (which is cool b/c cars can see you at night) got scuffed and wore off on one section. It's nice b/c it doesn'tl look reflective at all in daylight. They are true to size. I wear size 12 and these were spot on. I'm highly impressed.
This is my second MTB shoes, first one was different brand. The sole on Camber Crank is firm, which is found better pedaling. The grip is really good as well, better than my previous shoes. I gave 4 stars because there is scuff on the shoes already, even though I only wear it 2 times. Hopefully that is a one time deal only.
My third pair from the Etnies MTB series. This has been a great all around shoe!
Shoes are nice and durable but not comfortabl.Needs better insolts.
This is the second pair I’ve ordered. I think they hold up pretty well! I walk 5-6 miles a day in them. The bottom does have good grip. They are comfortable for my feet. I’d order them again.
