    What "casual" shoes do you ride with?

    Whats up guys!

    The title pretty much says it all... what kind of shoes do you ride with? I use Circa cx 211's
    and they worked out pretty good but now they are falling apart and I need something new. What do you use? Try to post the model and any website links or anything that you know of.

    Thanks!!!

    Skateboard shoes work well for riding because of the flat sole, so I use ES Accelerates(I skateboard too). Mine are green http://esfootwear.com/footwear/accel...dark-grey-gum/

    Honeycomb pattern with good ankle support. Bought 'em initially for skating, but they work great for both.

    but I don't know the model and am too lazy to check. Probably on the tongue. Also, when I first got these I had to cut parts of the sole out so my pedals would work with them.

    If I were you..

    I would get those new Payless AirWalks. they are super strong and have plenty of grip. They also don't hurt when you case lands and things. I have been riding with the same pair for about 5 months now, not one rip. they are only like $20 too...good deal. go chack 'em out.

    I have been ridin Adidas Mirra 3s that I have had since the day. Really likem but I have pretty much rode through the soles ....

    Don't want another skate shoe. I want a hiking shoe. Light weight, water proof, high top, etc. Need something water proof and with good ankle support for hiking/biking.

    I really like a shoe by Merrell @ BassPro shops ... but damn $120

    i ride wit my Fallens, there white and black, they dont have my version anymore, o well

    anyways fallens are extremely extremely comfortable, and ive had mine for a year and they still are like new!

    the only draw back is that the sole is fairly hard wen you buy them, but it only takes a week or 2 to break them in

    these shoes are so comfortable that i even run in them, and im not nearly the only one who thinks there extemely comfortable

    you can buy them at zoomies or check them out there website

    Etnies with the G2 Gel insert are the greatest... but I have a pair of DVS shoes. DVS Contra in black and white.

    etnies callicut. They're a typical skate shoe, but they grip well, last a long time, and look pretty cool

    SixSixOne Dually

    How about 661 Dually (used to be AXO)?

    Here are a couple of NSMB reviews...
    http://www.nsmb.com/gear/661_dually_03_03.php
    http://www.nsmb.com/gear/axo_dually_03_02.php
    ...but they are quite old -- '01 and '02 models I believe -- and they now look quite different: check them out @ http://www.sixsixone.com/catalog.asp...1ef16c&pl=BIKE and/or see attached.

    Cheers,

    DC Mantecas (Free from bike shop), really duarable tread.
    Used 2 pairs of XL2's and 1 pair of XLT's, and have Rowley Slims currently.

    I'd use my Slims for riding like I did with the other Rowley models, but I can destroy the soles on Vans within half a year or less. So, I save my Vans for special occasions, like riding at resorts.
