661 shoes.

I was wondering, which of the 661 shoes does everyojne on here like more out of the 4? I was thinking of the last pair. I would be using them for muniing and street/trials and normal everyday wear.

I have last years Dually's. Maybe even the year before, I can't remember. They were amazing for every type of unicycling that I like (only decent for freestyle). They lasted a really long time too.

the dually's are high top or 3/4 top and have a protective plastic cup around your ankle bones. i can't believe i ever road without them, also they're really grippy.

I wear some Salomon shoes I got at REI. they are great becuase they have kevlar laces and they get tucked into a pouch so the laces don;t get caught on the spokes, etc

Duallys are the best!

You cant beat the durability of the shoe, and the fact it is built with ankle cups inside the shoe that protect your ankle extremely well.

Or you can buy some 661 ankle biters and put those in your shoes, but the dually is a better shoe design overall.

How is 661's new Taki sole? Anyone tried it yet? Is it grippy even when wet or dusty or muddy? Is it durable enough not to get chewed up by the pedal pins?

I have the old Dually shoes with a different sole. I like them. Just not sure about the new Taki version.

I didn't actually get some. I think I'll get a pair when I wear out the ones I have.
