    What other than 5-10 shoes are you wearing?

    For those using platforms and not wearing 5-10 Impacts or Shimano AM40s, what shoes are you wearing?

    I'm still looking for a sticky soled, breathable, non-leather shoe for long sweaty XC type riding with few climbs of significance, no drops, and certianly no hucking other than a lugie now and again

    Currently I'm using some trail running shoes and they're pretty good, almost as sticky as my 5-10s, but just wondering what other platformers are using

    Well I use a pair of Scarpa approach shoes, but I had them resoled in 5.10 =-)
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    Skate or BMX shoes should give you a flat, sticky sole for platforms. Won't be great for any hike-a-biking however.

    Yes, but all of these are (hot) leather. I want to fill these with sweat and not wait 2-3 days for them to dry and petrify with salt...
