    Shimano PD-M647 shoes?

    Hello. I've been looking at clipless pedals. I want pedals that can handle freeride/DH conditions. I think I've decided on Shimano's PD-M647s. My next question is what kind of shoes do freeriders/DHs wear when riding those clipless platform style pedals? I've been looking at DH pictures and trying to figure out what most of them are wearing. Of course I see a lot of 510s. I have a pair myself. But as far as SPD shoes go, I don't see a lot of the same thing. I've seen a bunch 661s and some Shimanos here and there. Any suggestions on some SPD shoes for the PD-M647? Thanks!

    Hi,

    I would have a look at http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=24882
    and http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=7610

    Have the Shimano shoe myself. Nice with tall inside to support your ankles.

    I wear 661 Filters. They rock. It's also nice to not look retarded if I stop at the store after a ride.

    Can anyone comment on how well the platform works as extra support when clipped in? I'm currently using M520 pedals with MT31 shoes, and am looking for more support and better, platform like feel when doing faster runs.

    Thanks.

    I just got a pair of the new Vans SPD. I got them free from Decline when I renewed my subscription. I like em so far.
