    Need shoe suggestions after a broken foot.

    Figured im going to ask my Dr the next time im in, but thats not for another 3 weeks when I get this cast off...

    So I broke 3 metatarsals & i'm looking for some footwear. I was wearing a worn out pair of "DC Court" shoes when this little mishap took place..

    I use platforms & im planning on upgrading those as well (better platforms). But mostly needed some shoe suggestions i.e. stiff soles, etc... What I should look for in a shoe...

    Vans 'Gravel' is a shoe with sticky sole for platforms. I just started wearing them & like'em. Soles are stiff for pedalling along with having the grip on the pedals (I havent' worn 5.10's so can't compare). Got mine from Huck N Roll.

    I broke my foot in a similar fashion as you. I went with five ten free riders and Twenty Six pre Runners for pedals, Good sole that is not to flexible and the pedals have a good sized platform, I also had a custom set of insoles made with a carbon fiber base. I can spend the hole day on the mt and my foot feels good. Good luck
