At the Teva Mountain Games, we watched tons of riders in skate shoes struggling up the hill after their rides. Right then, we decided to bring our PedalLINK Outsole technology to the iconic vulc style. The result is the Crank Mid, a vulc-style sneaker with grip features meant specifically for biking.

Mush® Infused Insole

Now we're not necessarily splicing Mush® genes back in the T.I.D.E Lab to build a hybrid mutant insole, but we do have an insole that’s worthy of the Mush name.

Pedlamp™

Slipping off your pedal can be painful … and really, really awkward. To prevent that, we worked with our team of professional freeride bikers to develop the PedalLINK outsole. It was designed to link up with the pegs of your pedal to keep your foot in place and in control. On top of that, it's got lugs at the toe and heel to help you get around when you're off your bike.

T.I.D.E. GRIP
  • Our Spider365 Rubber sole will hold its grip in all kinds of environments

  • Aggressive tread designs at the toe and heel will grip the dirt when you’re hoofin’ it
  • Stiff and stable outsole that has been tuned for riding

Beautiful but a Fatal Flaw

By Kong7y

from Washington DC

Pros

  • Classy
  • Stupendous Ankle Support
  • Super comfortable
  • Superior grip

Cons

  • Poor Heel Design

Best Uses

  • All-purpose Wear
  • Dancing
  • Looking fly
  • Parkour

Comments about Crank Mid:

Made for biking, but the durability, grip, and support also lend it well to parkour*. I love high-tops, and these shoes are truly comfortable.

My one concern (and it is a HUGE concern) is that the shoes were designed with the stitching of the upper directly on the back of the heel. I don't even tug too much on the heels, but the stitching in the back came apart after only 8 months or so. Teva was very supportive and sent me a new pair, but I'm not convinced that it was a problem with just that one pair. I'd love to see this style continued, but that heel design needs work.

*parkour is an urban obstacle type of free-running including climbing, running, balancing, running up walls, etc. in wet or dry conditions. It really puts shoes through the ringer, and these shoes have certainly performed.

Solid skate-style sneaker!

By Luke

from Santa Cruz, CA

Pros

  • Ankle support
  • Comfortable
  • Flexible
  • Grippy
  • Stylish

Cons

  • Fixed Insole
  • Not water proof

Best Uses

  • BMX
  • Dirt Jump
  • Downhill
  • Freeride

Comments about Crank Mid:

Super solid grippy skate-style shoe. I use it for downhill mountain biking, BMX, and dirt jumping, and the performance is top-notch. Fairly grippy outsole, but not so grippy that you feel clipped in. I like I little bit of wiggle room. I've had the shoes for about 3 months and the only rip was on the logo tag on the tongue. I would very much have liked the insole to be easily removable (feels like I would have to rip it out), so that you could clean out dirt easier. I use these shoes when digging bike trails and jumps, and a removable insole is vital when getting down in the dirt. Other than that, solid, good-looking shoe.

    Q:

    Just wondering what kind of ankle and heel support this has. I spend alot of time walking/ carrying my bike, and tend to get sore feet after a long day.

      This style has a sturdy mid-ankle support (4.5" in front, 3.5" in back) with a stabilizing insert in the back. The Crank Mid features a moderate arch.

    Q:

    Can this be used in the rain? How water proof this Crand Mid is? I mean, not that I'd think that it could be worn underwater but my question is more related to biking over ponds and when it is raining.

      A:

      This version has a suede and mesh upper and is not waterproof. The Links Mid is made of waterproof materials and is more suited for wet conditions.

    Q:

    would this shoe handle well under brakeless bmx riding where the shoe is often used as the brake?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      The Crank is designed with a PedalLINK outsole to specifically interface with the unique platform of a bike pedal. It is not designed for being used as a brake, and this can be damaging to the sole construction.
