    who has five-ten shoes?

    getting ready to order a pair online and just wanted to see if their sizing is the same as most shoe companies. i wear a 10.5 in etnies...my logical choice would be 10.5 in the five tens, but thought i would ask just incase they run small/large.

    If you have some, post up what other brand shoe size they fit like.

    thanks!

    I wear a 10.5 and they fit me perfect. Best biking shoes, they hold a lot of water though.

    I dunno...

    I'm normally 8.5 or 9, but I'm a 9.5 for the high tops, the 9 was too small. My other 5-10 is a climbing approach shoe, and it's a 10! IMHO I'd err on ordering a 1/2 size bigger than normal. Jim

    My 5.10 HighImpacts and previous Vans are both size 9 and seem to fit me the same.

    Good job! 5-10's..

    I think that the 5-10's run a little smaller ... generally, than your street shoes, that's been my experience, anyways.
    I usually take a size eight in street shoes and sneakers/runners, but went to an eight and a half in the 5-10's. That is in the older style 5-10 Impacts, the new models may be a little different, i'm not sure ... because I can't wear out my old ones yet, they have been going for about three years now!

    Damn good shoes...

    Fit true to size for me

    I wear 10.5 in Van's and most other athletic shoes and I also wear 10.5 in my Five Ten Impact's. If anything they may run slightly small since they felt like they were touching at the front. Not uncomfortably but noticeable. Once they were broken in, they were perfect. You can also check out some other fit opinions at the Zappos website (http://www.zappos.com/product/7192262/color/34250).

    Customers surveying this product said...

    * 78% "Felt true to size"
    * 87% "Felt true to width"
    * 61% "Excellent arch support"


    Never tried any of their newer designs but the Impact's are top notch! Just stiff enough and almost too much grip. I actually have to lift my foot up to reposition myself on the pedal.

    I got a half size bigger. The 10.5 fit but were snug. I am sure they would have broken in, but I did not want to weight. The size 11 wer better.

    I wish they would make some without so much padding. When I ride creek crossing it's like I wrapped my feet in a sponge. I have the impact2 low tops.

    The fitting is a little weird, these are climbing shoe manufacturers and just try getting a normal shape pair of rock shoes.

    The original style I can't get to fit at any size, it just feels wrong.
    The basics fit me perfect but wear FAST.
    I am probably going freerider next time.

    10.5 Vans and 10.5 FiveTens.

    I used to think the Vans gripped well...and they did...but then after using the FiveTens for a few months, and then going back to the Vans for a day just to see how they were, it was a bigger difference than I expected. No more riding with Vans!

    And yes, they are like big ass sponges but hey they rock.

    Do these shoes have a firm shank in them? The concept seems sound, with the flat sole, but still seems weird to me riding in climbing or skate shoes...

    +1 on them running a bit small - if I had it to do again I'd get 1/2 size larger than regular shoes.

    Do they make anything in a 14? I can't find any. Really want some of these shoes but I wear a 14 in Nike's. (Nike's seem to run small)

    Do they run about the same as nike's?

    EDIT: Nevermind they have the Impact 2 Mid, and Low in 14, just ordered the Mid!

    9.5's fit me great, same size I wear for all my shoes. They feel a tad bit wider than most shoes and lack arch support but the overall fit is good. I'm looking for an insert I can throw in there to keep my feet from going numb while pedaling uphill. Going downhill I have no issues.
    Bike good, work bad.

    I found that the length (I wear a 10.5 normally and have a 10.5 in the 5.10) is fine--my toes don't feel crunched really, but there's so much padding that the shoe feels pretty tight around my whole foot. I don't know if going up a half size would fix this or not . . .

    BUT they do grip like a mo fo . . .
