Solid Shoes!
5 5

Spectacular shoe to combat the tive-fen monopoly on free-ride biking shoes. Sticky, Supportive, Stiff, and Sexy.

I've had mine for a summer and they've held up incredibly well despite hard wrecks, hike-a-bikes, mud, snow, dirt. I just ordered my second pair because I saw them on sale, but I'm afraid that if my first pair lasts forever I'll never get to use them. I wear them almost every day as my casual shoes as well, and they're still going strong.

Some people have said they run big and narrow. I find neither to be true. My 11.5s are perfect for my 11.5 feet. In other shoes my wide feet often blow out the sides. This hasn't been the case with the Links.

Great shoes, great price

In the photo - Old after Summer-Fall-Winter compared with brand new. I'd say these shoes hold up extremely well.

Don't buy these shoes. It's like entering a mountain bike race and then bringing a motorcycle. All your projects will go down, and then what will you do, play bridge?

Fine, fine ... if you want to send, get them. But don't be mad at me when there's nothing left to climb.

I wore Sportiva Exums for a long time and was bummed when they started manking with the design. Evolv is my go-to climbing shoe, so for approaches .... why not? Glad I did.

The sole is super tacky and climbing around on rock makes you feel like you've got velcro down there. There are no little suction cups on the sole, so there's some sticky black magic going on down there. They shed mud better than my old shoes too. They fit a little wider than the Exums. That's a huge bonus for most of us 'mericans that don't have skinny-ass Italian feet.

They're not flashy unless someone with a headlamp is walking behind you at night - they have a cool row of reflective dots on the back. So far they've held up to a decent amount of abuse. Definitely exceed my expectations. You won't be disappointed.

Oh, almost forgot - used these to bike in the other night - waaaaay stickier on the pedals than my normal biking shoes.
