    Where can I buy 5 10 shoes in Phoenix?
    I'd really like to try these shoes, but I would like to actually try them on before buying them. I have very wide, very flat feet so I'm pretty picky when it comes to shoes. Does anyone know of any local dealers with a good selection of bike specific 5 10s?

    Rage had two 510 styles in size 13 for me to try. First shop out of a dozen or more that had my size in stock for me to try on. I have a somewhat flat and somewhat wide foot as well. They fit well. So far I don't really think the stealth rubber is much better then normal skate shoes, but I do like that the toe box is a bit firmer. I've lost a toe nail due to skate shoes having the softer toe box area.

    I've got a pair of lightly used impact low size 9 (maybe 9.5) you could try/buy from me if interested?

    For what it's worth, Five Ten (at least their climbing shoes) are traditionally made more for the big US-type wide foot rather than the banana-shaped Euro skinny foot. Haven't ever tried their bike-specific shoes.

    Most online retailers make shoe exchanges very painless. So yes you can try on shoes not in a store.You just need patience. You cant beat the deals you can find online. I bought my 5.10's from bluesky for 40 bucks.

    And in the meantime, local shops close down because they are constantly being undercut by the online retailers.

    There is obviously a lot of mark up when shopping LBS.

    Try Rage first, +1 on shopping local. Most of amazon's retailers for clothing now allow pre-paid return, you will just have pain in the arse factor of packing and mailing to deal with if you don't like them. I tested some Teva Links that way and shipped them back when I realized I didn't like them no questions asked.

    You know, it all comes down to principle when you buy!

    Me, I buy local because of principle!! I need some MTB clip-less shoes, I look online, at all the different makes models and colors and I find what I like, then I read the customer reviews that are relevant to the product and what I am choosing it for based on what's important to me in a shoe and disregard any other reviews in regards to the CS of the online company. I then search the internet and local sources for local retailers of that product and I go visit the retailer (might be a sporting goods store or a LBS, I would pick the LBS first) and try them on. I would start asking questions, for my intended use, past retailer experience and customer feedback, and how long have they been selling this product. And I would buy from them! Simply based on the principle that the intent of the internet has always been about making information available all over the world, some felt that this is a great place to make a buck so they did, my principle of self preservation doesn't allow for arbitrary transactions with strangers in far off locals. I have to buy local if my community is to survive!! Some things "in my book" are not worth saving even 70% on to forsake my community! If more thought this way "guess what" our communities, towns, villages, cities and metropolises would be kicking some A$$!!!

    To add;
    If local retailers had websites themselves, (some do, but most are corporate, I'm referring to LBS) that advertised all their products, and their current inventory of those products even posted pricing but did not sell, (in other words just provide an electronic interactive storefront) they would place themselves in a better place all around in their community. This would only transfer in accomplishing "more shoes through the door" in many terms! :thumbsup:
