Kursk Black/Black Bike Shoe
- Product Review (submitted on April 26, 2013):
So I've been rocking my Kursk's for two months straight now and they are in a word, Awesome! I do bike delivery in all weather and these shoes never leave me feeling nervous. The soles are plenty grippy dry, they slide right in to my toe clips and off I go to my next stop. They repel all but the heaviest of rain and breath enough to not get too swampy. So far after daily wear and tear the seams and the vulcanized spots are all still quite intact . No fraying or separation of the sole from the cloth. These shoes are like converse or vans but actually durable and practical.
I do have a few minor quibbles bu it seems like everyone does( feet are all different?)
First off, they are just a touch too narrow. I don't have particularly wide feet, but they are pinched just a bit at the balls of my feet. Also, some of the seams inside the shoe and the tongue attachment feel huge when your wearing them. I wear thick wool socks but some days it was a bit much. Mine are broken in now and it's not really noticeable but it could be an issue for people who don't like thick socks. A model that is shipped waterproofed would be cool too, but that's the northwest in me talking. Once again these are minor quibbles and I plan on buying a new pair soon. No more cons for me, not when I can get a shoe that looks just as good and actually holds up to real life.
Thanks for making the shoe I've always wanted guys!
