Heres to you and heres to me and the best friends we will ever be
Honestly, I got these more for fashion over function. Why not fly your Irish banner while you ride? As far as function, they are raised a good half inch but are rounded and polished. If all you are looking for is nominal traction then get these. If you need something to really plant your foot then get something a little more studded.
I am not disappointed at all because I got what I wanted.
