Stuff Preview: Shimano SPD Sneakers

In an effort to give you some insight into the products we plan to send through our rigorous testing process here at Dirt Rag, we’ve come up with the Stuff Preview series. Each week, we’ll present one product that is currently in the hands of one of our testing staff. We’ll post a photo of the product, and give you the basic skinny as put forth by the product manufacturer. These products will appear in a future issue of Dirt Rag, and you’ll have to subscribe or buy the issue to get the full review.

This week we have Shimano SPD Sneakers.

Karl, Dirt Rag Product Testing Coordinator, says: “When I was  looking to outfit Justin with some SPD-compatible shoes for his foray into DH racing, Shimano’s SPD Sneakers came immediately to mind. They’ve been around for a long time, and represent the de-facto standard in the category. I figured that it was high time for a Dirt Rag review.”
