    I upgraded from $6 flats and boots to Wellgo Mg-1's and 5.10's a few weeks ago. Huuuuge difference, I feel much more comfortable and connected to my bike. I think the pedals and the style of shoe made more of a difference (I went for a quick spin with the new pedals and some old off-brand skater shoes) but the 5.10's are also helping as well.

    Get them.

    I did a lot of rock climbing for a while and that's where 5.10 obviously got their start. They took their expertise for sticky soles and translated it to bike shoes. I have a pair of Sam Hill's that I ride with my jumper and they stick so well I almost feel clipped in.

    I love my 5.10's

    I got a pair of them after constant shin scars. They grip really well, but the other day i tried my buddys skate shoes and i didnt notice much of a difference from my 5.10s. I think if you get a decent skate shoe for half the price you will be just as good.

    I went from a series of skate shoes to the 5.10, and it's a significant difference. With skate shoes you can adjust your foot with it on the pedal, while the 5.10s are soo sticky you need to lift your foot up to reposition.

    Welcome.

    They're worth $200 if compared to $50-100 shoes I've owned but you should stay away from them if you want to be a better rider.

    If there is a god her gifts would include those shoes and pedals with spikes.

    FWIW: I use stiff insoles that help with my small volume feet and arch support.

    I just picked up some Xpedo MX-11 flats at a steal and I'm thinking about grabbing some 5.10's. I've got other skate shoes, but I figured I'd dedicate one pair of shoes to getting REAL dirty. Don't want to filth up my daily shoes and 5.10's seem to be the way to go.

    try putting supportive insoles in your shoes, that helps my foot pain.


    Getting 5.10 rubber to stick is a skill, rock climbings are YEARS ahead in practice.

    Stick with it any you will be amazed what you can get these to do.

    I can happily deadlift my 40lb bike a foot into the air from a trackstand just off pedal grip.
    I however have a decade of balancing on rock with 5.10 and almost importantly have their Onyx rubber on the base (now that is magic).
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    I tried them and didn't like them at all. They certaintly did have excellent traction on the pedals, but the shoes were too big and bulky for my taste. And you still have to deal with securing the shoe laces. I think some $40 skate shoes would have worked better.

    restressing the shoes are not that good, it is the rubber that is amazing.

    Just get your fave pair of skate shoes and get them resoled.
    It costs less than the price of a new pair and relifes and improves your best shoes.

    I'm actually a fan of the whole shoe. It's well padded, stays put without having it tight, and has a very stiff sole.
