    Where for Teva Links Shoes??

    Best I've seen was $55 from a seller on Ebay, but he's on vacation. Vacation?

    Ebay allows you to put your account on vacation when you go on vacation so people don't buy things from you and expect you to ship them right away while you're lying on a beach in Hawaii.

    if you cannot wait, the Pinners are very similar and $50 shipped. I have both and the only diff seems to be the materials in the uppers but if had to pick, slight edge to the Links.

    I have the Links and really like how structured they are, however the lining on one shoe near the heel completely gave way. Have you had any wear issues? I'd like to get more, but need to determine if this is an isolated case.

    Jenson has Links for $40/- & Pinner for $55/-

    Limited sizes on the Pinner, much better on the Links

    The close out Jenson Links are not in my size 10. Thanks though.

    Tell me more about the Links vs Pinner experience. I'm mostly concerned about weight and stiffness of sole. I ride AM. $49 shipped is a great price.

    my <1 year old Links don't show any wear and tear inside nor out, using HT AE-01 pedals, no signs of pins tearing up the outsole so far. That said, I'm mostly XC so probably not nearly as rough on equipment.

    the soles seem identical to me (both mid and outer). The Links have hard plastic surrounding the heels (achilles area) that the Pinners don't have. But that's not likely to contribute much to sole stiffness, maybe it's more for durability.

    Yeah, the Links have better heel protection from hard off-the-pedal landings. I think I'll stick with the Links.

    Now if only I could find a better price on them.

    just to clarify so you have the info to better decide sight unseen... the heels on the Pinners seem equally thick and stiff w/out the use of plastic. I just can't imagine that being a wear area. That said, I too would give the Links a slight edge if price/availability is about the same.

    Thanks for the clarification. But aren't the soles on the Links stiffer also? At least in the store stepping on a hard edge it seemed so.

    Bought mine at zappos, think I paid about $50 for them their too. Beware, mine came with double insoles, felt like crap until I realized what was going on.

    Sorry forgot to check but my Pinners seem stiffer than the Links, but that's likely because I've used the Links most of the time and rarely the Pinners, they're sorta collecting dust.

    Bummer, had hoped to see more new models from them, guess a pair of 510's in my future once my Links wear out.
