    Best "gluey" shoes for platforms...?

    I've always been using clips but I just bought platform pedals so I'm a little concerned of "slipping" on them...

    Got to buy myself some shoes now. So what are the most glueeyyy shoes on the market?

    Thanks a lot.

    Cheers.

    5.10 Stealth Rubber

    Check out the Mt, Master from 5.10, same sole as the Intense Sticky rubber shoes and the 5.10 Impact, just more of a hiker look. Awesome shoes, your feet will not slip with these. Some people have to lower the spikes on the pedals because they stick too well.

    Check out the downhill shoes by Intense, they are insane!
    Or a more reasonable, and practical approach, as well as my favorite are the Geoff Rowley shoes that Vans skate shoes produces. You can find them in almost any shoe store for as low as $30 dollars a pair! You will see all kind of pro riders using them.

    Here is one link to Rowley's

    Good Luck

    I have been using my Circa, Appleyards for a while and they are just awesome. They have a stiffer sole then most skate shoes and a low profile tongue. Really the most kickass shoes out there, the profile of the sole is perfect for flats and you always have good contact.

    I have some Osiris's too but they don't stick nearly as well as the Circa's. I don't even bother with Vans anymore, I havn't found a tread patern that works in years...

    I hear DC and Enties make some damn good shoes but personally I'm so stuck on my Circa's that I can't try anything else...

    shop around for skate type shoes, look for prints that dont have any large 'prints' but something with a more uniform flat bottom (no seperate heal piece). You'll want a shoe that is fairly stiff. Some will even have a plastic or kevlar toe piece which is nice when your bashing into rocks n stuff.

    The best shoes i found were no-name warehouse clearance items for a good price.

    Ah, dude...Etnies are friggin' great. I have a pair of those fiveten shoes with the same soles as the intense shoes. I gotta be honest here. They're too sticky. There have been a couple of times that I wanted to get my foot off of the pedal (like attempting one-footers, for example) and couldn't because those shoes are so tacky. Etnies are my favorite at this point. They feel stickier than the Vans, but not too sticky.
