Must say, I think that’s sounds pretty durable. I think the fact that they clip in and also provides softness is a difficult combination. The soft parts will constantly grind and stretch where they’re next to unforgiving stiff parts. 1 year of daily use sounds pretty good.
how are they when skidding do they unclip?
Would you look into chrome industries shoes?
how bout chrome shoes? Do they last longer?
DZR’s lasted me about 4 months then the fixed gear made short work of them. Had to go with Shimano mtb shoes, which I’m very happy with.
where did you buy your DZR at ??? Can they be found here in SD ???
You didn’t mention if you wear it every day for one year on fixed or road. Judging from your other videos it seems like you mostly ride fixed, that puts different pressure compared to regular road use.
Every day man? That’s a lot of wear and tear bro. Probably should have bought another pair to rotate with. Sweat kicks though.
I don’t know what you guys do to your shoes, but my $60 (around $80 off sale) work shoes have lasted me over a year and still feel like new. I work in a warehouse so I’m always moving. I even wear them on weekends because of how comfortable they are. My point is, 1 year is not that good for $80 shoes
What about chrome 415 storms?
Let me get this straight, you wear these shoes EVERYDAY for a year, and you "abuse them."? And you are complaining about durability? Seriously? Dude, you’re embarrassing yourself!
The heelies of biking.
your pretty cool
What pedals do you use
I got these on sale for 40 bucks and i have put close to 1000k miles on them and they are amazing! I don’t ride the insane miles you do and since I ride a geared bike im not back pedaling to brake so that may count toward the wear. They could be a bit more stiff but I love them
Buy 2 or 3 pairs, and rotate them. I’ve never had a shoe last very long that I have worn daily, and that includes well built motorcycle boots.
Great. You convinced me to continue using my Big-5 High-Tec high ankle shoes. I really wish High-Tec would make some bike shoes.
Chrome Cycling shoes have the same issue. They fall apart and are poorly made.
My DZR shous just died, the insert has broken. But I have had them 5 years, used to commute a total of about 20 miles a week.
I am buying some new ones immediately.
My normal shoes only last about a year.
have you tried chrome shoes
get 5 tens
Have you considered Giro RUMBLE™ VR
Have you considered Chrome? Their shoes are similar to DZR.
Ill make my own these are ugly af
Chrome shoes are better quality
How about Five Ten District shoes?
within one year? those are not little glitches/loosening/fraying, that is totally coming apart…………….not good at all, no wonder my local bike mech. said this brand is crap
I feel that 80 dollars is really really good for a shoe that lasts a year. i mean some shoes that at just for looks cost more.
Nope, the "PERFECT" commuter shoes are the Pearl Izumi X-Road Fuel II MTB Shoes, they will take the constant daily abuse and hold up for years. These shoes also have a lifetime warranty!!!
I only get a year out of regular walking shoes if I wear them every day.
Dude, SAME. My DZR’s (3 PAIR) literally FELL APART within 6 months. The build quality is depressing 🙁
$80 shoes that last for a year are actually really good
Just bring it to shoe repair. Good specialist can fix it easily for a few dollars and your shoes would be even more durable than brand new ones.
Man’s never bought any other sneakers
what about the Giro grynd
Maybe your uncut nails cut thorough the shoe?
Dang for real? every single day for a year? for $80?? thats actually really good!!!!
Quick question do they make that annoying clicking sound as you walk when the metal makes contact with the ground , also do they work with crank brothers candies – thanks in advance love your videos
I’ve been using a single pair Chrome shoes for over three years now. Talking about bang for your buck.
Are the best
I think ridin clipless with this kind of more sneaker shoes is a expensive, bad quali, and ugly compromise to cages (with good laminated straps toshi/mks alpha and some Track pedals with no grip). If clipless than with stiff mtb/road shoes only…I ride some more expensive mks straps+ mks track nuevo cause they stay in place so you can fit them a little loose for fast exit and in case of a crash but they tight enough for pedaling and skids + 100% freedom with you shoes (no click click special shoes, and easy walking).
If you’re not a cross-dresser or a flamenco guitarist cut your fucking finger nails man.
I know what you mean, but I bought Chucks for like 70 euros and theve last me for like 10 months
im a fan of the Chrome casual looking shoe
Any shoe will explode with that use. 80 bucks a year isn’t that bad. 6 dollars a month for good looking cycling shoes.
I’m buying those Fuckers
For 80 dollars lasting a year is good. Think about it you pul it and push them off and on your pedals, mostly the pulling tears them apart . Its normal. And really durabul
Have a pair of decade old 661s. This is their last year of use, in daily messenger duty. Did, for a second, consider DZR, but after seeing this, nope. Still like them, these would be my fancy 4th pair of backup shoes, but for shoes that last a year I wouldn’t go over the price range Aldi/Lidl use
Glad I found this video. I wanted visual proof that they do fail around the heel. So to make it short. If you ride under 10 mph these are perfect. They’ll last at least a year. However if you ride an average of 18 mph in a busy city like NY where you stop and start constantly don’t expect them to last a month.
