    Shoe without using clipless?

    If I get this to ride on platform pedals is it going to work well?

    I am interested to get a clip specific shoe because I may get clipless pedals later on..

    If not.. do you have recommendation on shoe that is good for platform riding, but also work well if I need to walk or push my bike across the terrain, I am thinking something with good treads.

    It's not going to work well at all. If you want a shoe that can be run on platforms and clipless, make sure to get one with flat bottoms. You don't really want tread. If you already have a good shoe for platforms, I'd forget about buying an clipless compatible shoe until you decide to go clipless.

    My buddy who downhills uses plain old vans, seemed like a lot of guys use them too. They work pretty well with platform style pedals.

    using platforms skate shoes lke kids use on their skateboards work well, lots of contact area help reduce slipping

    As stated I wear skate shoes while riding both my mountain bike and BMX bike. There is no slippage. I like DC, but get whatever brand you want.

    Decent skate shoes for the cheap solution.

    5.10 shoes for top of the line.
