    Mountain bike shoes

    I ride my 29er to and from work for exercise and was wondering if anyone has tried these Keen Hydro h2 sandals for mountain biking ?

    I use Adidas Supernovas. The white stuff provides cushion better than other shoes I've tried when lots of rocks would leave my soles numb.
    Those Keens can work in some terrain.Mountain bike shoes-bb3462_01_standard.jpg

    This is the current model with increased cushioning.

    Fine for riding to the store or around the hood but I'd not wear them for anything more - same for the Supernovas.
    I have Specialized mtb shoes for clipped in riding (mostly a road bike) and a pair of Adidas Terrex Trail Cross for flat pedal riding. Stiffer soles and more grippy soles make for a better ride.

    Mountain bike shoes

    I used a pair of keen sandals very similar to those; mine were made of leather.

    They were a nice shoe, but they didn't provide enough support for me.

    I switched to a beginner set of clipless and feel it was an improvement.

    The shimano click'r are a very easy clipless to use. They have shoes that completely conceal the cleat, and I have found them very comfortable and light weight.

    They also disconnect with very little twisting force, yet provide exponentially more pedal feedback and contact than flats.
