    Adidas NEO as Mountain Biking Shoe

    Should adidas NEO be even considered as a mountain biking shoe (with flat pedals only, of course)? Anyone here used them in the past? Thanks!

    No, they wouldn't be considered a mtb shoe at all. Could you use them with flat pedals, yes.
    Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

    I have an older pair of neo's, the soles are a little worn. I was using them the last 3 months for riding. They work alright. I just picked up a pair of 5.10 Freerider Elements. There's no comparison. The Freerider's are much better in my opinion. The soles are a little stiffer. They stay stuck to the pedals much better. I'm definitely glad I upgraded.

    Well, decided to abandon the Adidas NEO idea and went with Vans for now. Still think they will be better than my current pair of ASICS running shoes. Vans are not Five Ten's for sure but yet priced significantly lower.

    The Adidas that work for me are the Supernovas with full Boost midsole.
    That midsole eliminates the trail/rock vibrations that used to leave the soles of my feet numb after hard riding even with the gel midsoles of my Asics running shoes with forefoot gel.

    The white Styrofoam stuff is BASF Boost. It never compresses and wears out like other running shoes.
