Video: Vans Gravel mountain bike shoes – First look

Classic styling, with a sticky sole for flat pedals

The Vans Gravel looks like a top flat-pedal contender, but it'll face stiff competition from the likes of FiveTen

Legendary skate shoe brand Vans have dabbled with mountain bike footwear a few times over the years, and they haven’t always hit the mark. However, the new Gravel, aimed at flat pedals users, looks like a winner.


Ric Laughlin from Mountain Biking UK magazine has been putting it to the test, and you can find out what he thinks of it in this video preview. Look out for a full review in the magazine soon. The shoe, which features Van’s classic WaffleGrip tread replicated in sticky TRAX rubber, costs £80 a pair.
