I'm new to offroad/DH riding. So far i've driven with random footwear... I've seen some pro shoes for mountain bikers on the shop which stick to the pedals. Just wondering are there any special shoes ment for downhill / random offroad riding or you all ride with random footwear(like with some DC's or VANS')?


my bike is gt chucker 2.0 from 2005 and it has default pedals.

    with flats any grippy soled shoe is fine, alot of people use skate style shoes, you can get specific mtb ones aswell.
