The Warner is BMX racers' and mountain bikers' first choice in style, comfort, and performance for SPD-compatible shoes. The Warner utilizes our lightweight gum rubber "Off the Wall" tread pattern molded to our performance-driven SPD-compatible outsole. We've extracted material from key points on the SPD-compatible plate to keep it light, yet stiff, over the mid foot area, while providing flex in other key areas. The upper infuses a blend of weather-resistant synthetic leathers and vented ballistic nylon mesh with a removable hook-and-loop adjustable tension strap. Our self-centering gored tongue keeps debris out of the shoe, while the molded EVA foam sockliner ensures that your feet stay comfortable and well-supported all day.
The Warner clipless shoe works with any SPD-compatible pedal system and allows for a smooth and direct power transfer to the bike from the rider over traditional footwear. This system also allows the rider to step onto the cleat to engage it, and twists the foot to the side to disengage for ease of use.

Got these in the mail. First impression was they were pretty heavy and top the scales at a bit over 1.2 kg. That said, you're not going to get these if you are planning on racing xc. I'm using them on the tidy for cruising around town and they definately look better than my other race style shoes in the urban environment. The sole is stiff and the strap holds my foot nice and firmly. Can't compare will other brands but would recommend.
Also it's a bit intimidating hacking away at the sole of a brand new pair of shoes to attach the cleats and takes some force to get through the rubber so be careful.

Been riding this shoe for about 6months now. Bmx, DH, 4x and even on the XC bike. Very comfy. Cleat position is a little different to the Shimano and most other shoes I've ridden on, but once used to it, it feels very natural. 5/5 for this shoe. Vans rule.

Looks like they have listened to previous criticism. These shoes now have a much thicker insole and the cleat positioning is spot on. Very comfy on long rides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great Shoes!
I heard bad reports about the first generation of this shoe, which kind of put me off. However this years versions are great.
The sole is super stiff this time round and the cleat positioning is neigh on perfect! Not to mention they look much better than the usual Shimano or FiveTen equivalent . . . 5 stars!
