    Attention anyone who's warn various Five.Tens. Help!

    Ha. I said "warn." Obviously I meant "worn!"

    Are all their bike shoes as wide as the Impacts?

    I tried the Impacts and just couldn't handle the width. They were perfect length-wise but I felt like I was swimming in them. I have a pretty narrow foot, and I'm used to a lot of shoes being a bit wide, but I think the Impacts were the widest shoes I've ever put on. I contacted Five Ten and they said they're all made from the same last...so the answer is probably no, but I thought I'd check for some real world experience with Freeriders, Line Kings, Basics, etc.

    P.S. No, I can't go try them on anywhere. Thanks.

    I have heard people say they are wide which is really strange to me. I have crazy narrow feet and the impacts fit me perfect. I probably have a good 2 or so inches from one side of the lace loops to the other (if that makes sense, 2 inches of tongue showing in the middle).

    I have tired on the freeriders and if anything they felt a bit wider to me.

    I haven't noticed any variation between the Impacts, Sam Hill's or Freeride's. All fit me the same but the Impact's have a thicker tongue...

    The impacts are very wide to me, freeriders fit well and do basic.
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    I have Impacts and Basics. Basics seem just a bit narrower, but I they aren't enough shoe for DH or FR on me. I just wear them on DJs.

    Minaar's are pretty wide in the toe box area. Have to crank the crap out of the laces to keep my foot from moving around in the shoe when up clipping from pedal.

    Fox shoes are narrow. 5.10s are wide not as wide as Keen but pretty wide. I've only tried the impacts and the guide shoe which is my everyday shoe.

    I have both a pair of freeriders and impacts. I would say the freeriders are a tad bit narrow than the impacts. I have fairly narrow feet and both fit great. Your best bet might be the impacts because the "raptor tongue" tongue system they use on it. Its really padded. Which kinda covers your foot and holds it secure. Just a thought
