For riders looking for a pair of mountain bike shoes that does not really look like one, the 2011 Keen Austin Pedal Bike Shoes are the perfect item. Combining bike shoe functionality and traditional Oxford styling, the shoes feature a thermoplastic urethane cleat tap and a 3/4-length SPD-compatible plates.
To enhance comfort and moisture control, elastic leather-lined heel pockets and Cambrelle lining in the forefoot are added. Cushioning, rebound and arch support are sufficient, thanks to the custom shaped removable metatomical EVA footbeds.
While they are water and stain resistant, the full-grain leather uppers are made flexible so the mountain bike shoes fit comfortably. Hip styling is added to the 2011 Keen Austin Pedal Bike Shoes by the matching leather accents and contrast stitching around the ankle and eyelets.
