So… these are pretty great! They are my first pair of clippable sneakers and I’m in love! Super comfortable and clip in seamlessly giving you solid control and power transfer without walking around click clacking stiff footed.
Although these are my first clippable sneakers and I have nothing to reference that these are better or worse than other options… I’ve gotta hand it to DZR; they are stiff in all the right places and soft where you want them to be for kicking around town after you ride to your destination.
The DZR Minna’s have a perfectly placed shoe lace retention elastic strap that has proven to be very useful. When I first saw this feature I figured I’d never use it and it’s probably super tight not easily allowing you to stuff your laces into the shoe, thus keeping the lace out of your crank… but I was wrong; very useful and very easy to use.
When I first got these in I easily unscrewed the cleat cover and screwed in Crankbrothers cleats, hopped on my steed, and went to pedaling. At first it’s a weird feeling being so comfortable and clipped in.
Go to DZR and check out the specifics on the Minna’s. If you are in the market for a clippable sneaker, you just found it. If the Minna’s aren’t the style your prefer, no need to worry… DZR has several other options that may fit you better. Cheers!
