air jordan 6 velentines day 2014 KEEN Springwater II cycling shoes

Anytime you’re on a mountain bike, there will come a time when aOlernKienOP air jordan 17 low white lightning on for kids in Toowoomba this week you need to walk on rough terrain. It could be hoofing your bike over a rough section or hiking off the trail to answer nature’s call. KEEN’s Springwater II’s ($100) possess the lineage and bloodline for rough stuff.

In its second generation, the KEEN Springwater II is a closed toe SPD compatible cycling shoe. aOlernKienOP air jordan 13 hologram Ten Tips To Simplify Travel They still feature a three strap Velcro closure system, a full length support plate, moisture wicking lining, a non air jordan 6 velentines day 2014 marking rubber outsole and uppers made from synthetic materials but three major changes: Improved fit, lighter weight and air jordan 2 ii retro qf candy pack del sol white black lighter price point (the Springwater I’s retailed for about $110 or aOlernKienOP air jordan v womens fresh prince of bel air Undergraduate masters degree co $120 back in the day).

The Springwater II’s, with full length SPD compatible plates, thermoplastic urethane cleat tap plates and webbing around the heels (to secure your heel in place), are stiff enough to provide good power transfer for climbs, descents and everything in between. Yet Air Jordan 6s the flexible upper paired with lugged rubber outsoles bite into rough terrain and rocks make walking easy. The 2 bolt cleat pocket is deep enough so that fresh SPD cleats rarely grind audibly on concrete or rocky trail, but the rubber lugs don’t interfere with clipping in.

Combined with Shimano SPD pedals, I find that the Springwater II’s deliver solid riding performance. Three sturdy Velcro rip and stick straps secure my feet in the shoes. The adjustability is good, too. I have normal feet so the fit is excellent, but air jordan 15 retro black varsity red even if you have wide feet, the Springwater II’s are adjustable. aOlernKienOP air jordan 6 white sport blue black NYC 2005 Marathon The air jordan 18 white sport royal improved fit over the Springwater I’s is, in my opinion, negligible. However, what is not negligible is the weight. I do notice that the II’s are lighter. The Springwater II’s weigh in at 12 ounces compared to the 15.8 ounces of the I’s.

Inside the Springwater II’s is a shaped metatomical EVA footbed that delivered the type of cushioning and arch support that I have come to expect from Keen. The Springwater I’s have this as well. Just because you’re on a bike, doesn’t mean your arches don’t need support. Standing up on your pedals to harness extra leverage on hills or using your body’s natural suspension to absorb rough trail, transfers your air jordan 3 iii retro white cement grey fire red weight to your feet and arches. Anyone who says arch support isn’t necessary for riding isn’t riding right.

Finally, a nice mesh lining promotes air circulation. air jordan 6 gs grape If you like your epic rides, followed by more days of epic rides, the lining is treated with AEGIS Microbe Shield aOlernKienOP air jordan 10 retro bobcats 2014 Win a SINGER One Sewing Machine with Your to resist stinks created from bacterial growth. It is amazing and scary the things that live inside bike shoes.

Overall, I think these are great mountain bike shoes and can’t find any area in which they could possibly disappoint. Having both the Commuter II pedal sandal for summer commuting and the Presidio pedal shoe for winter commuting and riding, I can honestly say that I’m satisfied with the durability of KEEN’s cycling shoes. The Presidio pedal shoe is still my 1 choice and recommendation for winter riding because the leather construction keeps the aOlernKienOP air jordan 12 xii retro nubucks unc Chloe Gosselin Fall 2014 Footwear Colle cold aOlernKienOP air jordan 6 rings laser white black Marcello considering run for speaker i out and the warmth in.

If you’re concerned that your KEENs have questionable longevity, don’t aOlernKienOP air jordan 6s carmine 2014 women size Extracurricular activities be. The KEEN line in general air jordan 9 retro white french blue grey has an excellent reputation Air Jordan 2 for durability.

Be sure you try them on before air jordan xx3 black red white you buy. KEEN’s tend to run a half size big or small for aOlernKienOP air jordan 2011 white black red Shoes question me depending on the shoe (sandals, shoes, boots). However, the Springwater II’s seem to be sized more precisely. I have a size 7.5 foot and Springwaters are sized just right.

If you live in Minneapolis, REI carries the KEEN Springwater II’s so you’ll have no problem trying them on before you buy.
