    What type shoes you guys rockin?

    Looking to buy a new pair of shoes.
    I've been using the ADDIDAS "PUSH" (I use cleats).

    When I do use cleats (rarely) I love the hell out of these. I only use cleats on what a Freerider would consider XC and AM rides.



    Shimano MP66

    What did you call me?! haha I use those same shoes for all mountain rides and racing DH, 4x, and slalom.

    For freeride, general dh riding, slopestyle contests, and dirt jumping:

    5.10 guide tennie. The 5.10 freeride shoes didn't fit too well, although I'm kinda glad because I needed a pair of approach shoes for scrambling anyway so saved myself some money.

    I'm currently using an old pair of 661 Launch shoes for clipped in rides, but anxiously waiting for the new 5-10 clip shoes. I was told they'd start shipping them out in April.

    5.10 impact HIGH tops. Low tops don't provide necessary ankle support, nor will they protect something from popping against your ankle bones. Plus high tops don't really restrict articulation anymore than low tops do.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    661 Filter. They are cheap and grippy. My only issue has been the SPD patch coming out and having to be glued back in. Also, +1 for the Shimano MP66. It's a shame that 661 is not going to offer the Filter in white anymore, the outer material shed mud and dirt better then the black.

    5.10 Rennies. To be honest I don't really know why he has a pro-model shoe, but they f[ ]cking rock. As stated above, the high tops are not a hindrance, and they offer much more ankle protection. But, just like their namesake, they are a little on the heavy side

    Full set of laces underneath the cover. They have a nice ankle protector to protect from smacking your cranks and the cover protects really well on wet rides

    And Yes, I think they are pretty comfy

    I couldn't feel the pedals on the 510 low impacts cause the sole is so thick and so I've gotten a pair of freeriders but I'm kinda skeptical still cause the sole feels abit thinner but still thick and stiff... might change them for basics.

    I got a pair of these for christmas and i love them. I like them because they distribute the pressure really well. Other clipless shoes I've had put a ton of pressure just on the cleat engagement area on the bottom of my foot and were really uncomfortable when you stood up on the pedals. I use them with mallets and candys

    Ride them for a while, you will get used to the feel. You will have to learn to trust the grip...unlike any other shoe, with even the smallest part of your foot on the pedal...you will NOT come off.

    I started BMX racing about 30 years ago and always ran vans (paper this soles). I have ridden flat pedals on all but the road bike for those last 30 years. NOTHING I have ever tried comes close to the 5 10 traction, but they do feel a bit odd at first. Little clunky and boot like.

    The big difference IMO is that with something like vans or skate shoes, you need to feel if your foot has moved part way off the pedal because the next bump you hit, you are going to loose the pedal. With 5 10s this wont happen... as long as you have some of the 5 10 on the pedal...it will stick and stay.

    It took me a couple full days (whistler) to get full comfortable with the 5 10s, but now I would NEVER go back.


    Of course none of this matters as the OP was looking for (?cleat shoes?) AKA clipless.
    My current and only clipless shoes:
