The Trace Cycling Shoe looks great on and off the bike. It features a suede body and a breathable mesh upper. A Velcro lace keeper at the top keeps laces out of the way. The rubber outsole offers great grip and walkability and has a fiberglass reinforced nylon mid-sole for pedaling efficiency. SPD-compatible, but also works great with platform pedals. Reinforced toe and heel cups improve durability, and the heel loop provides easy on/off convenience. Great for mountain biking and touring, the Trace is also a superb option for indoor cycling.

Good compromise here My Diamondback shoes arrived promptly, and I found them to be sturdy and well made. The fit was about what I expected and they are comfortable to walk in. They could be lighter, but that’s not really much of an issue for a guy that is 6’4″I selected this shoe because it appeared to me to have more substantial soles than the average MTB shoe offering. While I did find this to be true, I didn’t realize how much that extra walking traction would affect the clipping in process…
