    What is the stickiest spd compatible down/freeride shoe?

    Just wondering if anyone out there could give me some intel on a sticky downhill/freeride shoe that is spd compatible. I am currently running time attack z pedals and I'm wanting a shoe that has a softer sole than my cross country style shoes. I am also trying to stay away from shoes that have a void (of the tread) in the arch area. Basically I want a shoe that will work well unclipped from my Attack Zs, for those sketchy technical sections that you don't feel comfortable being conected to your bike. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks

    This might work but I have no idea how it performs:

    l don't use them but l get a lot of people coming in looking for 661's.


    l like the worker boot jobbies made by Lake. the soles tough as nails not sticky at all.

    Any of the 661 will do just fine.
    Also the Shimano skate shoe does really well too.

    I myself rock the 661's, but when they die I'll be picking up the shimanos

    IMO, there is no shoe that is gonna feel comfortable unclipped on clipless pedals in hairy situations. That being said those shimano's are really nice and they clip in easier than most xc style shoes I've tried, that being said, I still prefer xc style shoes
