Over the past year, more MTB riders have discovered SCg shoes, and we're so stoked to see our family growing. SCg shoes are now being ridden in the dirt around the country, from Portland, OR and Lake Tahoe, CA to Boulder, CO and Sarasota, FL...
We've met a lot of people out on the trails over the years, but David really embodies what we're all after... having as much fun on a bike as possible. He routinely roasts trails (see video below), flips huge doubles and puts the shovel to the dirt more than a California gold miner. He also puts his shoes to the chudder test here!
TL;DR using a combination of all the right elements, instead of leaning on one special compound to carry the shoe.
There's no denying that a pair of SCg shoes just feels good.
The minute you put em on, you can feel the years of effort that've gone into making the perfect shoe. They come fully pre-laced, and lace up snug. And your first few steps let you know you're in good hands... instant grip on the ground, plush heel for impacts, supported mid foot, and that sensation up front that can only be described as the perfect pedal feel.
A shoe you can ride in, then tromp all over town for hours in.
It's hard to put your finger on it... you can pick at the rubber or flex the leather, but no one thing seems to stand out.
That's because what SCg does is different. We use a combination of many elements : amount of rubber, mix of rubber, depth of the sole, contour of the footbed, firmness of the midsole, impact-absorbtion of the insole, suede that breathes but doesn't tear easily, lines that allow movement without getting in the way... every last detail has been thought about. And revised.
These all add up to something special. From the very beginning, SCg has been about creating a shoe that stands up to lots of abuse, and lets riders do more.

Size 13's and the leather Sound's and Mid's are getting done over the next two weeks and we look to have those in stock in about three to four weeks. There are a few pre-books for 13's and some of you want the leathers, so I apologize for the delay and we're looking forward to getting them in to get them out to you guys. Also with the rest of the order thats coming in are all the shoes we'll be sending out if you've won some kicks for prizes. Made some more improvements to the shoe so it's taken longer to get everything in then initially anticipated. Thank You all for the support and patience. Sounds and Mids are in stock and ready to ship...
Its 10:03pm friday night. I've been at and around the desk now for about 15 hours and approx 19 minutes to this point today. I am just finishing up adding shoes to the online store inventory and double checking everything thats on the shelves. Finishing a few photos to continue to get the online store dialed, and also have a stack of shoes from pre-books to get ready to ship out in the AM. Hopefully the mail carrier picks them up since the shipping labels were created a bit after the cut off to have them picked up tomorrow. Its been a long week but a good week. Finished converting the garage into a shoe warehouse, moving the washer and dryer from the end wall to the sidewall next to the door to get another 3 racks in there to be able to get all of the shoes up and organized. Electrical,and plumbing done, and now, ready to wash some clothes.
I am feeling a bit tired, from all the hours over the last two weeks but I am completely stoked. There has been a ton of work going into getting this larger batch of shoes made and shipped into Tampa and getting them even more dialed they they have been. I have had great help with and from Margarita, Jason, Billy, Zack, James, Mike, Paco, and Dan to name a few, and all of you that have supported what we are doing.
Thank You all so much..
and Thank You Matt for all the good times and skids!!!
They keep me sane. lol...
Now order some shoes so I can pack them up and ship them out to you...
