Shinn footpad.... sneaker x....

Postby BillyGoatGruff » Thu May 02, 2013 11:16 am

Hello: I am trying to track down a pair of pre-production sneaker X footbeds. They must be exactly like the ones in the link below. I have the normal sneaker X. I just need the footbed.

Link no worky.

I have two pairs of Sneaker X pads/straps. My pads are almost exactly like the Sneaker S pads, just thicker. I see the Sneaker X pads shown on Shinn's website show a different traction pattern on the pads?

So far I like them. I had no issue with the Sneaker S.

There are two versions of the Sneaker X pads, the first model came with the first batch of Monk Forever and SS last fall the new model came in the first few months of 2013. The difference is very light between the two. I have both, one model on the Monk Forever and once on the Speedball. The difference is too light to me to say one is better than the other.

Why don't you just message Mark Shinn directly? It would be a lot easier. I have an extra pair but i'm in Mexico & won't be in England until July......

Why do you want the older style footbed over the new one? :?:

The baseplate and cutout for the strap looks a lot like a pair of old Caution pads I still have in the garage.
They were super comfortable.
