Your built-up enduro sled is chomping at the bit to be taken over some destructive terrain, and you're more than willing to indulge it, as long as you aren't using clipless pedals. Zoic's Prophet Full Action Leather Shoe gives you the freedom to get rowdy on the trails and easily hop off as the line you're stepping through edges precariously close to a cliff. Zoic, known for its clothing, collaborated with the shoe gurus over at Osiris footwear to create the Prophet, giving it Zoic style with the solid construction for which Osiris is known.
For the Prophet Full Action, the companies used a full synthetic leather upper with reinforced heel and toe areas then punched out perforations throughout the upper to keep things breathable. The lace-up closure along the upper allows for a slim, secure fit, while the rubber compound used to construct the sole gives you ample grip when you mash down on the pedals to power over rollers. Zoic added a 2mm Texon lasting board to enhance the shoe's rigidity and make sure you're getting the power transfer you need, even without the benefit of clipless pedals. Zoic then lined the shoe with EVA foam to keep it comfortable for short sessions and long days all season long.

These are great shoes for freeride/downhill. I don't think you can find a better pair for the $. They're actually made by OSIRIS and just branded by ZOIC so they have the same bomb-proof construction you can expect from an OSIRIS skate shoe. The sole is super stiff providing great power transfer to the pedals and it also provides a nice solid platform for landing jumps/drops.
