    Need advice on most comfortable shoes, and flat pedal

    Just got a new specialized enduro size large.
    I have pretty messed up feet from them being burned. Not crippled, just want a shoe, that I can wear for a couple hours without dying to take them off lol
    So comfort, grip then looks, and pedals that will stick.
    Will be doing a lot of trail riding at first till I get back in shape, and see where it goes.
    Use to race bmx, but that was 15+ years ago when I was in my late teens.
    Thanks
    Jason

    I find my Specialized 2FO very comfortable. Five Tens are also comfortable, both great shoes. So many pedals to pick from but I really like my RaceFace Atlas for the size and ease of services. That said, you do need to service them. If you poke around you will find some giant flat pedal review threads...

    I didn't even know there was an issue....I am running SRAM cranks these days. No issues but you do need to mod the crank arm boot to work with the pedals.

    The pedal is too close to the arm. After the mod to the boot, is there enough material left on the boot to hold well?

    2FO's it is then, before making this thread, I had just put those 2FO's in my shopping cart, one of the guys, I got my bike from recommended those were very comfortable.
    Now I don't know which size to go with.
    My true foot size is a 10, but I wear a 10.5, which is easier on my feet, having that extra room when I'm on them longer. Since I saw they have a 10.25, I thought I'd split the difference, and be alright. Plus after a few rides won't they break in, and fit so to the shape of my foot?
