Clipless Vans that aren't horrible!

From here.

Vans and BMX racing were synonymous in the late ’70s and throughout the ’80s. With the natural progression of BMX racing and downhill mountain bike racing now demanding specific footwear, the designers at Vans created a shoe that meets the technical needs for both disciplines. Rounding up the best riders in BMX racing and mountain biking to help us develop and test our product, we created a shoe loaded with function and style.

Vans’ Warner is the first choice in style, comfort, and performance for SPD compatible shoes for today’s BMX racers and mountain bikers alike. The Warner utilizes our lightweight gum rubber “Off the Wall” tread pattern molded to our performance driven SPD compatible outsole. We’ve internally relieved 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 sock liner ensures that your feet stay comfortable and supported all day.

They remind me of these

That reminds me of CraigC

they are still horrible.
id rather wear cycling shoes that look like cycling shoes, instead of cycling shoes that look like poor mans casual shoes.

a clipless era would be sick though. or even a sk8 hi.

I used to work with a guy who had Polio as a kid. I think he wore some of these because he had one leg shorter than the other.

Why can’t vans just make normal vans with clips. why do they go all bulky skate shoe.


these are barf-city

Meh, i like clips and straps. I can’t be fuked unless its made by the company and done properly.

One of the couriers up here Karlzi runs McBeths with a clipless sole glued into them works pretty well from what he tells me.
