Flat pedal enthusiasts rejoice! We've created a shoe that not only performs on the bike, but looks good enough to be worn off of it. Flats, platforms, whatever you call your traditional BMX-style pedals, the Gravel shoes will stick to them like glue, thanks to our custom-designed TRAX rubber outsole featuring our WaffleGrip tread pattern. The Vanslite midsole will keep the weight down and the comfort level high all day, while the Impactsorb heel insert will prevent any heel bruising. The entire upper is wrapped in abrasive-resistant synthetic materials that also repel water. A reflective sidestripe and woven labels top off the details.
TRAX Rubber specializes in engineering high-friction rubber for performance sports footwear. Originally developed for technical rock climbing where high friction and grip is essential to performance, TRAX Rubber is now used by top performance footwear companies for various action sports applications.
