Unparallel Sports MTB Shoes | Sticky Like Five Tens

Unparallel Sports MTB Shoes are built for strength, grip, comfort, style, and function. Equipped with a high sticky rubber outsole, and designed by experienced mountain bike riders.  There is a rumor floating about, Unparallel, known as UP, has been formed by ex FiveTen employees.  The engineers responsible for some of the best MTB and climbing shoes available.  If this rumor is true, Unparallel may be some competition for FiveTen.

Unparallel is offering three models including flat pedal specific, a high-top, and clip-in versions, each with its own features.
