    Are there any clipless shoes out there like the five10's?
    I've got a pair of 661 filters, and while they were an ok shoe they're worn out now and I would like to replace them with something better. I really like the looks of the five10's but they don't offer them in clipless.

    Basically I'm looking for a burly low top clipless shoe that has some more padding then my 661's, does such a thing exist?

    Also, I know this isn't exactly what I'm looking for but I think I might be better off with some pearl izumi "x-alp enduro's" than to go for another pair of 661's have any of you had any experience with them?

    That's an odd request. I've got 5-10's and, while I like the comfort and stickyness, I'm not thrilled with the looks. Fugly IMO.

    I'm sure there's somethnig
    shimano makes a few that aren't roadie looking, but they don't look like 5-10 either.

    Ok, I should have been more clear. I like that they look to be real comfortable, tough, grippy, padded, and durable. I'm not into the styling too much.

    The DX's are great shoes just beware if you ride sharp, rocky areas, the sole does not hold up to slashing abuse as well as some others do. Despite that I love them.

    A few years back I bought a pair of SixSixOne Nuevo shoes (clipless) on ebay for 15 bucks. They are not good shoes for all day serious biking because they aren't very stiff. In fact you can walk in them all day and they pair up with regular clothing nicely. In fact I still have them because of that reason and I use them sometimes when I'm just tooling around the 'hood with kids or whatnot.

    Lots of ankle padding, big cushy tongue and very walkable.

    I hear ya. I only ride spd's about once a week at the most and the majority of my riding is on impacts. I want the feel and sole of the impacts in the spd shoes. I got the specy sawpit when they first came out and eventually the soles broke and the velcro quit working. Ordered the buzzsaws and sent them back, can't remember exactly why now.

    I looked hard at all the options and recently got a pair of shimano m51, still haven't ridden in them yet but at least I finally decided on something. They are narrower than impacts, not as much padding and stiffer of course.

    Look at the entire shimano line, Cambria seemed to have the most to offer.

    I have a pair of Oakley Radar shoes that sound like they'd be spot on for you. I use them with flats (sticky soles) and spd's. Problem is, I'm not sure they make them anymore, so they might be hard to find.

    Did Shimano stop making the DX’s? They are hard to find. I could only find one place and they didn’t have my size.
