    Finally...Adidas Hematoma shoes...
    Sorry for the spam, but about this time last year a lot of riders were looking for these shoes. Go-ride signed up as a dealer months ago and finally the shoes have arrived. If you are in need of the best clipless DH shoe, this is it. Here's a link if you are interested in getting a pair: Adidas Hematoma Shoes



    I managed to find a pair for myself, last year, and after a full season (about 100 DH days) I am still loving these shoes. They have a stiff sole for pedaling, but are coated in softer rubber for walking. The inside of the ankle has a great pad and the toe is made of bomb proof hockey skate material. The center of the sole has a long channel to make engaging your pedal easier. They use 3 heavy duty velcro straps and the cut is wider than most cycling shoes. Overall they are the best DH shoe I have ever seen, I even use mine for XC days.

    Wow those things look nice, i think im startin to like the adidas stuff. The yodai goggles are so nice, someday ill own a pair :rolleyes: I know if i rode clips DH those would defenitly be one of the shoes id consider. So they werent all that bad for XC? it sounds like theyd be kinda overkill for a full time XC shoe. They defenitly sound badass.

    Can you take a pic of the other side of the shoe, eg. ankle bone side?

    What do consider the best non-clipless shoe?

    I'll see if we can get a pic up some time.

    IMO the best non-clipless shoe have been the Intense 3/4 top sticky rubber shoe. They didn't fit so well, but the soles and protection were very good. To bad they aren't available any more.

    We try not to post prices on message boards, both for the sake of other users as well as our vendors. Give us a ring or check out our website for pricing on the kicks. I'm afraid the only guarantee with the shoes is that they look sharp?

    I've found that the fit very standard. I you normally wear a 46/11.5 then that's what you would want from the Hematoma.

    PS: I lowered the price to $99 including shipping (ground in the US) for MTBR and Ridemonkey members.

    Who needs a $100 shoe for mtb? I got me some beater nasazio vans (aprox 2 years old) spray painted black with duct tape around the middle (to keep it nice and tight fitting). It's doesn't look too bad, my friend could tell they were spray painted even.

    Oh, btw not dissing the shoe either. Those don't look too bad...

    Hey in reference to the best non-clipless shoe on the market, I totally agree with James that it was the Intense models. They were discontinued last season at the disappointment of many diehard flat pedal riders, but this year Five.Ten (the makers of some of the best climbing and paddling shoes) starting making their own model of the Intense branded shoe in a low-top and 3/4 top. They look so much alike that maybe Intense was having Five.Ten make the shoes all along??? I dunno. Anyway, here is the address to the website for the Five.Ten Impact shoe.

    I was surprised to see that James didn't know about the Intense/5.10 shoes availability - they are the best for flat pedals (sticky rubber really holds) - 5.10 (climbing shoe company) made the Intense Impact for a short time, and then they were discontinued - now, do to popular demand, 5.10 has brought the shoe back - they are nearly identical - and available in both a low and mid top.

    here is what they look like and a number you can call and order (a number of bike shops online have them as well)

    5.10, the makers of the Intense shoes, are producing the 3/4 and low top DH stick-e shoes once again. Seems the demand was to good to ignore. I know your a busy guy so I thought I'd give you the heads up. ;)

    Might want to, maybe, give 5.10 a call and look into a little dealer action.

    Scott,

    How well do these work with CB Mallet pedals? How many spacers are needed. I've been looking for a good shoe to use with Mallets, but seems most have terrible interface issues. Thanks.

    that way, when doing a search, you find a thousand posts w/ a couple lines of info, vs. a lot less containing a lot more information? :confused:
    Or is this just a way to lord over those w/ fewer posts than you? :rolleyes:
