I tried a SuperFeet arch support, and it didn't change anything. I eventually just sent the shoe back. It incredibly painful to ride in.
In a different review, you also said -- These shoes are very stiff, making them ideal for beginners and all-mountain riders alike. ... so I didn't know how to take that in context with the other comment that -- the shoe has a lot of flex and is lacking stiffness for more aggressive trail riding.
Can you explain a bit more how stiffness of the shoe contributes to the ride? For example, in one of the reviews you said " the shoe has a lot of flex and is lacking stiffness for more aggressive trail riding." What does that mean exactly? Similarly, I only ride flats and do a mix…
I had trouble with my gform ripping. The pads ripped off the material very easily...just trying to get them on.
$150 is the upper price point for women's flat pedal shoes. Given your take on the DST 4.0, it doesn't seem like a worthwhile purchase. Foot stability on downhill is a huge deal. And, it's a really ugly shoe. I wouldn't purchase this over FIve Ten or the Liv shoe.
