    Five Ten VXI Clipless

    I just returned the VXI clipless shoes to MEC. After 4 1/2 months the soles were coming off. Other than the crappy durability they were my favourite mtb shoes ever. Comfortable, good pedaling, good walking, stuck to rocks like glue, water resistant, and looked pretty enduro. Next up are some Teva Pivots on close out from Jenson. Too cheap to pass up.

    What is MEC? Did they honestly accept those shoes back used after 4 months of heavy use?

    Scratch that, Canadian shop. But really, they took them back and refunded you?

    Mountain Equipment Co-op. Soles shouldn't separate after 4 months use. Years ago I bought a Topeak floore pump from MEC, this was before they tracked all your purchases on the computer. I used it a lot and after about 5 years it needed a rebuild. I bought the kit, rebuilt it and it still didn't work properly. I figured I needed a new pump head or something and took it into the store. The service desk guy couldn't figure it out and told me they would exchange it. No receipt, no record, nothing to prove I bought it from them. I'm one happy customer.
