Rugged commuter kicks.
Whether you're riding up steep hills in San Francisco or coasting on your single-speed through downtown Chicago, the Chrome Men's Dima 2.0 Shoe has you covered with its reinforced structural design that lays power down, yet doesn't alter its low-key look and feel off your bike. Chrome uses an internal PowerPlate propulsion shank, so you can pedal swiftly through the city without wasting precious energy.
Fire-hose canvas uppers remain highly breathable and withstand the everyday abuse you're bound to subject them to while commuting and riding across town. The contoured, impact-resistant PU footbed supports your feet when you're pedaling and walking for hours at a time, treated with an anti-odor finish for lasting freshness. It's finished with a vulcanized rubber sole that grips aggressively to your favorite flats and remains flexible enough for everyday activities off your bike.

- Q & A
A Solid Casual Riding Shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 9
I've been impressed by the quality of these shoes. They're not my normal style but they're comfortable enough that I find myself slipping into them whenever I need to run outside - either on bike, foot, or driving. The sole is stiff and grippy enough for riding flat pedals without being unwalkable and the upper holds my foot well despite no laces.
I normally wear a size 9-9.5 shoe depending on brand and 9 is perfect in these. My feet run slightly narrow and I'd call these a true average fit width-wise - they work for me but would fit a touch wider feet as well.
We'll see how these stand up to long term use but quality of construction looks quite good. There's nothing fancy going on here but pick these for a solid casual riding shoe.
Initial Fit Impression
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I am normally an 8 in dress shoes, 8.5 US running, 41.5 Sidi and hover between 41.5 and 42 in Pearl Izumi depending on the size.
I am wearing a size 8 in the Dima 2.0 and it's a good fit. My foot is a little narrow, and I can tell this would fit a traditional last well. It may be tight for a wider foot.
The Chrome Contact Rubber on the sole seems plenty grippy for flat pedals. The shoe also has good arch support for riding, while maintaining the flexability in the sole of a traditional walking shoe. The Gel pad built into the sole under the heel is a nice addition for all day wearing.
More information to come after I get out and ride a few more times in them.
