Available in a flat pedal version only, the aim here isn’t to win races, but to be the shoe you’ll wear for a good corner slapping session in the woods with your mates. Before we dig into the details, here’s a little shreddit from freerider Hannah Bergemann and enduro racer Mathew Slaven, ripping up some local tracks modeling the Dakine Drift.

The Dakine Drift flats get the brand’s own proprietary rubber outsole, said to have been in development for years. They say it offers incredible grip whilst retaining good durability and thus, longevity.

Dakine use a proprietary shank too, said to be flexible in the toe region for pushing back up trails when sessioning. Beyond this region, the shank is stiffer to maximize power transfer through to the pedals.
