    I have some Five Ten Dirtbags I got a few years ago online - fairly cheap, grip well, wide for their size. Probably my go to for flat cycling shoes, though I also have a pair of "forged rubber" Chromes that definitely look less dorky. For flat pedals I have some UK brand (Nukeproof), also bought online. I think almost any decent shoes would grip great on these, although it may wear our your sole fast. Definitely would recommend shin guards if you're doing anything where you might hit your shins!

    This is consistent with my experience. But read the comments to the vid as well, which are consistent with the pro-flats arguments being made here (25 years of clipless v one hour of flats is a bad comparison)

    I haven't watched the video, but the pedals pictured there definitely don't look like grippy flats.

    Yup. That was a big comment from the peanut gallery.
