James Huang, Cyclingtips
Cyclingtips Lintaman’s insoles feature ...[an] arch support and metatarsal pad... [that is] attached to the underside of the insole with Velcro... to move them around into a position that suits you. Lintaman’s [arch] is made of carbon fiber and provides a remarkable amount of support. Lintaman says the foam body will gradually conform to the shape of your foot with no ovens required.
Tyler Benedict, Bikerumor.com
Bikerumor [Lintaman shoes]... give you a ton of ways to tweak the fit. Multiple loops and routing for the retention cables make it possible to keep some areas open and loose, and others tight and secure.... The other benefit is they can adjust to thinner or thicker socks more easily, or different size feet from left to right.
Alex Paton - GCN
GCN One of the standout features [of the A1] is this incredible heel cup. The dial on the back allows you to get your foot firmly secured in place. The heel cup… is completely adjustable. [You can set it up for] a secure fit, ideal for if you’re racing. However… if you're training or want a more relaxed fit… you can have it in the more upright… comfortable fit. [The design] is simplistic and minimalist, I really like that!
Chalres Manantan, Pez Cycling News
PEZ As an experiment of my own, I had 3 friends try these on. They ranged up to 1.5 sizes larger than me and a full 2 widths larger. They all commented on the comfort, including one user who’s feet are so bulky that he can’t find many stock shoes that can hold his hooves (and he’s a full size larger than me…).
Custom-shaped insoles for any brand or model shoe, without a custom price tag
Beyond now being sold with a 30 day money back guarantee, the Adapt Insole V2 has been Updated with adjustable arch and metatarsal support pads for an even better fit.
Lintaman's Adapt Insole V2 exists because everyone's foot is different. They feature carbon arches and metatarsal pads that can be optimized in position. This offers an improved fit and level of foot support - without the pricing considerations of many custom insoles. There also crazy light - at just 58g for size M, they weigh half as much as many molded insoles.
By making your shoes fit you better from underneath your foot, you get a firmer, more comfortable connection to your bike; giving an improved riding feel and reduced foot fatigue. Furthermore, a proper setup can mitigate hot, painful or tingling zones under on your feet, while improving both knee and skeletal alignment.
Both Cyclingtips and GCN have seen them, and liked what they saw. Read more and see what they said, by clicking on this link.
YOUR SHOES SHOULD FIT YOU, NOT YOU THEM.
Arrival Q4 2021. Lintaman shoes offer a custom-shoe-like fit, right off the shelf. Whereas most shoes only tighten the area over the top of your foot (the instep), our shoes offer a multi Zone, 3-Dimensional hold all around your foot.
A Lintaman shoe fit isn't just snug - it works like a shrink wrap, enveloping your foot from behind, above, inside, outside, and with select models, from the front too. Lintaman's closure concept shapes and secures the shoe to your foot. The result is improved comfort, retention and stability compared to classic closures that hold your foot in a shoe by tightening over the top.
The fit can be adapted intuitively using ratcheting quick release dials, and it can be tweaked on the fly. If you're out to hunting PR's or racing, you'll discover the comfiest solid fit out there. On recovery rides and touring, the same shoes will offer you a stable loose fit.

Top quality and innovation, from day 1
No joke: "We're big in Japan" - and a few other markets. Was that song actually about us? No. clearly not.... But we're only now starting our branding push into the global marketplace.
Our brand started when Chris Lintaman, a retired pro cyclist who worked in manufacturing and quality for many years for a large house of cycling brands, decided to solve the issue he experienced his whole racing career: Shoes that are good; often really good - but still, not quite right. In fit. In detailing. And more.
We started by making white label top-quality shoes for multiple other brands, which we've been doing for over a decade now. You probably already know a product or brand we've worked on. Who knows, one or two of you might already be riding shoes we made.
We're proud of the many positive reviews our white label products recieved from cycling's leading global media. And if you look for it, you'll find early Lintaman brand coverage from Pez Cycling News, BikeRumor, and more, hidden in plain view.
So yeah, our own brand shoes gained success very early on in Japan. Meanwhile, we continued to carefully develop them, improving our designs and functionalities along the way. Today, we've decided its time for everyone else to learn our name:
Lintaman: The brand where off-the-shelf meets an off-the-charts quality of fit.
How the Lintaman fit works
A massive fit range - and a custom program for those that go beyond it
Sometimes a foot's width-to-length ratio goes beyond the bounds of what even our shoes can handle.
For those people, we have great news: we offer custom built variants of our production shoes for a very reasonable fee. Still havent found your fit? It's time to go Lintaman!
