Hit of the day : Pearl Izumi X-Project shoes. Lots of video, photos and such coming through to you today. It is also the first day on the floor, make sure to follow me on Twitter/Instagram (arleighjenkins) to get on the floor updates.
It seems that the Pearl Izumi shoe the X-Alp Drift has been redesigned. I should say, thankfully re-designed. Going from a 3 strap velcro system, to a shoe that looks like a hiking sneaker. I can say this is on my list of wants for the hike a bike trips, bike commuting and trips with the family. Easier to walk in. Functionally good looking and cheaper than a lot of cycling shoes. That sounds good to me if they fit!
Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II MTB Shoe MSRP $110
Almost every bike shop in America will be able to get these shoes through my employer, QBP. We currently are out of stock in them but will be getting them in the next week or so. Sizes 36 through 42 whole sizes. Pearl Izumi, I wear a size 42 if you want some reviewed!
Oh yes, I wasn’t paid or bribed, and I may make money off of these if you buy them through your bike shop who buys them through my employer, and that shop is in the southeast. That’s my disclaimers. Thank you for listening.
