    Five Ten Impact Shoes

    Five Ten Impact shoes (low cut) are on sale at Paragon Sports (paragonsports.com) for $56 with free shipping. A very good deal Ė itís anywhere from $20-$30 cheaper than I could find elsewhere for the shoes + shipping. Unfortunately, Paragon only has sizes 10 and 11 available at the moment, but if thatís not your size, can check back now and then to see if stock is expanded during the sale.

    Note that some of those who have reviewed these shoes in various places claim they actually ďfitĒ about one-half size smaller than the stated size (e.g. size 10 fits like a 9.5). Overall, supposed to be one of the grippiest, if not the grippiest, shoe on the market.

    I have not bought before from Paragon, so canít vouch for their service.

    Cool, very glad there was a size 11 out there to take advantage of the sale -- $56 w/free shipping seems like a bargain compared to what they go for on other sites....

    I bought them from ChainReaction in the UK and have been very happy with them, but the sole on one shoe has stared to separate from the upper and I'm considering sending them back. The only trouble is I don't want to be without them for [SIZE=2]a few weeks at least while waiting for shipping to and from Australia.

    Here's a picture

    Great set of shoes!

    Just have to get your foot placement right the first time otherwise you'll have to literally lift your foot off the pedal to reposition. No shifting around easily with these pair of shoes. Loving mine so far.

    I got 510 shoes and think they are awesome( i usually ride clipless).. and yes they do fit a bit small. My shoe size is 10 or 10.5 and the size 11 510's fit me best.

    Received the 5-10 impacts from Paragon (no problems - can now recommend their site at least as to this one and only purchase that went well) and also agree that the shoes run small. I'm a 9 to 9.5, ordered a 10, and they fit. FWIW, based on similar reviews of others, I'd order a half-size larger that normal if ordering these shoes....

    These shoes are the best shoes I've seen out there for riding platforms. I wanted to get a 2nd pair from Paragon but I couldn't find the link on their page. Ugh.

    Considering that their price was pretty darn good, they may have sold out .

    Yeah, they did sell out. Hopefully they reload, as they seem to always offer free shipping on orders more than $50. Paragon allows searching by brand, so can check their stock of FiveTen products pretty easily.

    FWIW, if Performance runs another 20% off/.99 shiiping sale, might check there. They sell the shoes for $80, which would go to $65 with sale (incl. shipping). Not quite as Paragon, but not bad w/shipping included and no tax and much more size availability than Paragon had....
