Why We Like The X-Alp Launch Mid WRX Shoe

When our trail date calls for overcast conditions on an already mucky hillside, we grab the Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch Mid WRX Shoe to keep us fresh in mid-top, water-resistant fashion. The durable Cordura upper material provides seamless support that cradles your feet and is treated with a WRX water-shedding membrane. A Boa Fit System with an L6C dial makes for easy adjustments and reduces the snag potential that may come with standard laces.

  • PinLoc tread pattern provides positive pedal engagement

Kinda bad for daily wear...

I ride clipless pedals; I don't ride with this shoes, so I bought it as my everyday shoes. It is not comfortable, as Keith mentioned, it rubbed the back of your foot and up (around tendons). I found that this feeling might go away if I tight both straps in a loose way. This is not the main issue that made me walk uncomfortable, it is the areas around your joints. I used to have the crankbrother flat pedal shoes, and that shoes was way more comfortable than this unfortunately...

They Rub Your Achilles Tendon

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was excited to try a brand other then 5Ten on my flats. These looked cool and I like the way they tension vs laces. I put them on and went for a ride and they rub my achilles tendon like crazy. I literally can't wear them and they sit in the corner.
