I ride hold fast and clipless and I rock vans eras because I find authentics once broken in to flimsy also I'm a big van of SB janowskis along with és era shoe. Those 3 are amazing no complaints from any, stiff, sturdy, look bitchin' and the és are anti microbial so unless you rocking no socks everyday in 90+ degrees they wont smell. But I want to get some sambas or tiempos to compare and about to pick up some mavic road shoes before I leave for college cause in PA there's no reason for me to clip out

Ride it like you Stole it.

-Super stiff sole for mondo power transfer.
-Solid construction feels sturdy on pedals.
-Brilliantly weatherproof/breathable fabric.
-Luscious inner sole.  I always go sockless & never feel sticky.
-Cork midsole molds sublimely to your foot.
-Looks better with wear & age.

Yeah they're ridiculous at $260 a pair.  I saw them, then looked down at the Jack Purcells I've been wearing since 10th grade. Figured I finally deserve a new pair of sneakers.  Once you touch these, you can feel the quality oozing out.

An awesome shoe for riding. They're the main reason I went brakeless- I finally felt some real control over my pedals (that & finally using some Hold Fasts).  Just as good for running around the city- plowing through slush, jumping on benches, & running through subway stations.

They were a great shoe for the winter- but now that summer is rolling around, I'd like a pair of classic white kicks to ride in.  Tough to find a pair with stiff soles.  Any suggestions?

:)  Oh I do for the long rides.  But the most mondo amounts of stiffness are worth nothing while looking like a dork with shiny velcro shoes in the coffee shop.

Bought my first pair of SAMBAS from Frankie this spring. They are the dopest for clips!
Id always worn slip ons previously. (Yes I also have clipless shoes).
Sambas are stiff and the soles are great for tedshredding!

Kind of disappointed in these Vans. Don't know if I just need to break them in, but I wore them all day today and they were really uncomfortable, especially in the collar area.  The top of my heels are blistered, and in pain right now.

yeah, that back heel on the era takes awhile to break in. I had those in grey before, personally wasn't a fan. 
Nike zoom tiempos are still my favorite riding sneakers. Stiff sole, comfy, tough toe box, low profile so they slide in and out of clips easily. Try them out.

Love it or Leave it.
