    DC shoes for MTB?

    Was looking into getting some Five Ten,but a friend told me he wore DC and they did really well for the price. I just want to get a few more opinions,before I drive an hour away to a dealer. LMK

    I run DVS, same thing as DC. Make sure they are soft rubber as this will help with grip. No problems as well and for 50$ I can get two pairs.

    Exactly what he said,two for the price of one. He said they had a sticky rubber sole. DC Graffik I believe is what they are.

    Most skate shoes have soft rubber soles. Pretty much all I've ever ridden in. They work great

    Excellent. Will they be stiff enough?

    I was sold on using skate shoes until I got my Teva Links. The stiff shoe really does wonders while climbing.

    hey op- if you're lookin for stiffer than standard skate shoes but want a skatestyle I always mention Vans' Gravel shoe (5.10pricing, though). It's their flat pedal shoe with their own "sticky" stiffer sole. compared to my fivetens they aren't on the same level. they probably can compare to the Teva. I like 'em for shorter rides and jumping cause its easier to move than fiveten impacts and they are VERY light.

    full on skate shoe that i use to skate and ride are Vans Wileys like the old Rowleys. 40bucks vans store closeout with a buy 2nd shoe @ 1/2 price! winner winner chkn dinner
    i really should type less and tread more

    Not sure if I need stiffer than standard. In the few months I got to ride,I just wore my sneakers. I could feel the pedal underneath too much it kind of made my feet hurt.

    Think I have decided to go with the DC and get some new pedals.Should be an upgrade from my previous setup with the stock pedals and my sneakers.

    Change that. Buddy had a code for the Sam Hill 2 at HnR and I got them for a good deal. We will see what happens with the new pedals.

    DC shoes, IMO work great for mountain biking. I've used Vans and recently bought Shimano SPDs, took those damn things off after about 3 weeks and now I strictly use DC's.
    Ahhhh...Ahhhh....it's the hammy, it's the hammy!!

    4KW-1-YH1QZ Saves 15% off. I got a few other things,so it saved me around $45. Not sure if it was a one time use or not.

    What do you think about the soles? Are they stiff enough for the pedals? I was wondering if they would be too much flex under the feet. Which ones do you wear?

    I'm not sure of the model but they're grey, low top and made of suede. They are plenty stiff enough for my liking. That was the problem with the Vans, the sole was way too flexy. When I get home from work ill post up a pic of the DC's

    Any skate shoes with waffle soles.

    I believe that's why they made them for BMX'ers?

    Airwalks I found to disintegrate faster.

    I just got the DC frenzy and they are stiff and sticky no pedal slips yet while hopping or gaping anything. and they have a really nice heel support incase you have to do a foot slap to avoid and uber fail.
    Carpe Diem because you would be cooler if you did.

    I had some DVS shoes when I was a skater- walking torn them up more than skating or biking ever did!
    Technically I don't what kind-of riding I do- I just know I ride hard!

    Yeah I noticed that too. Actually, I'm in the need for some new shoes and those DC frenzy's look nice. Edit. For that price on those frenzy's, I'll just go with some 5.10's or Teva's.
