Crankbrothers just released a lace-up version of its revamped Stamp shoes. The Crankbrothers Stamp Trail Lace features a new outsole with MC2 rubber and Match tread plus a few other intriguing details. Learn more here…

Crankbrothers has been busy updating its shoe lineup with a complete redesign. Following their Mallet and Stamp BOA release, the brand recently announced their new Stamp Trail Lace Flat shoes and Mallet Trail SPDs. I’ll link to all of them below, but here are more details about their Stamp Trail Lace flat-pedal shoe, which looks the most interesting to me.

Crankbrothers Stamp Trail Lace

The Crankbrothers Stamp Trail Lace is a completely new design, although it has a few vague similarities to the Stamp Lace I reviewed in 2021. It has synthetic upper with a lace-up closure system, a lace pocket, perforations to provide airflow and breathability, and a TPU-reinforced toe box. Crankbrothers says it has a moderately flexible mid-sole for long-ride comfort, and a new Match tread pattern with their MC2 rubber. Hopefully, that means they’ll be more grippy than their predecessors (and perhaps a little less flimsy).
