    I wear black/white Vans Rowleys. Not the poofy skateshoe ones, but the smaller oldschool type ones, but not oldschool like canvas. And it has the awesome pattern on the bottom that is glued to my Azonic pedals.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    I think mine were like $40 when I got them. But I think they're a few years old because I found them in my closet when I was cleaning my room a few weeks ago.

    thats always good to hear. God im so freakin broed in this comp class. We literally do nothing, the teacher is listening to a nuclear safety recording from the 50's tellin u directions in case of a nuclear explosion and how u should duck and cover. Cause duckin and covering will stop that gamma radiation right in its tracks...

    are the 661's the skate shoe lookin type with that strap that goes over the laces to keep them from floppin? if so those shoes are pretty sweet and i want a pair of my own. But iv never been a fan of ordering shoes online and i dont think any store near me sells those types of shoes.

    Everyone makes fun of me for this, but to be honest, this is the THE BEST type of shoe you can get for platform pedals. They are WAY better than skate shoes for freeriding/jumping.

    Some of the best Freeriders I've ever met rock these types of shoes. They keep your feet in place when going huge. The idea is that you can throw your feet forward off stunts and drops without your feet moving position. The raised heel in the rear really locks the foot in good and puts the pedal in a perfect position for hucking.

    These are the exact shoes I wear. You can't beat a lightweight waterproof shoe that holds the pedal like no other.

    yeah, well i dunno they have their own look to them but if u had to say it they would be more skater looking mine though dont have the strap to keep the laces down, i think thats not needed i love mine and the sizing gets pretty exact also

    Seriously though, I use a set of airwalks. Have used vans as well. Anything that has a soft compound base with criss cross grooves works for me.
