    Platform shoe recommendations

    I'm wanting to ride in my flats and jump, and looking for a good suggestion for shoes. Ideally would like a value pair that is not crap, since I wont be riding in them too often.

    Five Ten Impact have gotten good feedback, but they are close to $100.

    Thank you.

    How 'bout these

    Not sure if the color would match your skin tone though.

    fabulous color, the angle will provide natural toe grip and help hide my cankles, but they clash with my dark blue bike. I think they will match CoyoteKis' bike quite nicely.

    The 5.10 Inpact 2's are on sale at various places for $80. To me that's dirt cheap. What are you wanting to spend? $25? I think you can find some white Reeboks with the velcro laces for that price.

    If you wanna play...you gotta pay.

    After doing my typical over-the-top research, I concluded that the 5.10 is the best shoe out there. I'll bet I found at least a dozen websites that said the same thing -- the 5.10 is the ultimate platform shoe and nothing comes close.

    Mine should be arriving today. We'll see how I like them.

    Thx...Doug

    Chollaball - you aren't too tall, do you have smallish feet? see www.backcountry.com for the 5.10 Rennies like mine. Cheap!

    If you like a mid-rise shoe, that's a great deal.

    I don't like shoes that tall so I went with the Impact 2 Low instead. I think the Impact 2 Mid and the Rennie are the same exact thing...just the colors are different (black/black vs. black/tan).

    Thx...Doug

    Just yesterday on morning shuttles I slipped a foot off the front of the pedal when a gear slipped during a shift. My ankle jammed really hard into the pedal but was protected by the hi-top 5.10s. My ankle is bruised & bit swollen today - without the hi-tops it would have been much worse! I say go for as much protection as you can get... they are super comfy and I am never bothered by all that shoe.

    how do you like the mid-rise? heat, chafe, banging the chain stay? Almost everything I own is low-rise (including my g-string). $57 incl shipping is a good deal.

    Doug - can't wait to see you ride that bike for the first time and hear you b!tching about the shoes, the pedals, the weight, your spandex getting caught in the linkage. But yeah, an extra $30 is nothing if it keeps me out of a crash.

    thanks everyone.

    i was thinking the same sorta thing, especially as a noob to this type of riding, mistakes are sure to happen. I recall you wearing those on a Double Bypass too, cause you know I like to pedal up.

    are they true to size? Backcountry has 8.5, which is what I typically wear - either way they have a good return policy...hard to beat to get a first set of gear at that price.

    KK - this is coming from a guy who hates wearing socks because I can't stand the feeling of anything around my ankles. Every time I ride my bike or go running, I wear anklets...never anything taller. If I could get away without any socks in my MTB shoes, I would.

    Even when I played basketball I always wore low-rise shoes because hi-tops drove me nuts.

    Yes, I have issues.

    Thx...Doug

    Cholla,

    All of the above posts are correct about the 5.10's plus they will last you a loooong time. You can throw them in the washer and the stealth rubber will be just as sticky as the day you bought them 2yrs. later-this coming from experience. I have the low-tops just because I don't like the restriction of highs or mids. You can always throw on an ankle guard underneath if need be too.

    Well, I wear size 9 women's shoes which is about a 7.5 in men's sizing and the 7.5 5.10s fit me perfectly! Get em!

    just ordered. thanks everyone for the feedback. Cheap enough that if I hate the hightops, I can prolly resell for 30-40 and make sampling some better gear worthwhile. Looking forward to my next time at NRA, and will be fun to try on Somo or Goat and compare to my clips.

    yeah yknow, its not just that it clashes with your bike...i just can't condone the makeup kit under any circumstances. maybe if you stuck some goo shots and sunscreen in there. I think Chongo needs that for his new bike - it would match purrrrfectly.

    Oh you and Walt! Enough already, with the "it doesn't match thing". I mean, what... do you guys spend your off-bike hours watching Queer Eye for The Straight Guy? Match, my azz. I ride a rigid, I smell like an animal... no reason to look like one too. I will enjoy my leopard print bag, and I will PACK IT full of lipgloss. I am, in fact, on my way to go glue-gun a mirror onto the inside flap. I am woman, Here me... purr.

    Why do I need a multi-tool, when I have YOU. *filing nails* You change flat tires and fix my bike jus' fine, spankyouverymuch.

    And yeah... I am going to post it in every thread. Wait until I get my matching ears, grips, tail, and hanging dice. So wrong it's right. So ugly, it's cute. Like a pug.

    Has anyone tried the 5.10 Freerider? I am wondering if the Stealth sole is as tacky as the Impacts? It looks like a "slimmer" version of the Stealth sole, but I can't tell if it is the same material.

    Mine are turning purple after a years worth of use and not once have they been washed. I think the sweat combined with our lovely 360+ days a year of sunshine help fade them.
    +1 for the 5-tens or any shoe with the stealth rubber bottom.

    As to the seat, I thought about that, and it would look mighty fly... but I'm afraid my butt will shred off all the faux-fur, and it will end up looking like this dog I had when I was kid. Skeery.

    you totally need the saddle - then you would have balance in your montage. right now the handbag just draws all the attention away from the bike, the bike gets mad, and you have tension. LISTEN TO ME - I took an art history class once. (actually, i just dated an art major...actually, I just got drunk and hooked up with an art major...actually I'm not really sure if she was an art major or just was kinda an artsy burnout girl...


    You need this! If its like their camo saddles, its pretty durable printing, better than the pleather. And they are extremely durable saddles. I've got one on my heckler and its been good.

    Wow! That's a whole new level of tacky.

    I LIKE IT!!

    But let's not get crazy, here. I mean... first of all, I don't want to detract from the main show, which is ME. *sweet smile* Second of all... I don't want to look like smaller prey, to a bigger cat. *sweeter smile*

    But I do want ears for my helmet.

    I need an intervention.

    Kat! Just the one I wanted to hear from... another woman... because, umm... question about female-specific seats. Yes? No? Make a difference? It's all I ride with, have ridden with, and they don't make this seat for women.

    The SDG Belair has been my seat of choice for many years. The new ones have a shallow nooky channel and as you can see in the photo, the rear side tips up a bit. I tend to rest my sitbones on the back of the saddle and like saddles with this profile best... I've never liked the female specific saddles because they're always too wide. I may have a wide ass but darn it, i don't need a barn to sit on!

    Kat- Come to think of it.... yeah.... those things are one inch short of a cruiser seat!

    Jason- Are you in town tomorrow? After my son's morning FB game, I might just have to take you up on that.

    I would like to add, for the record, that I actually bought a pair of shoes by about the 14th post in this thread. This is what happens when D plays cougar at the keyboard.

    I am compelled to respond. And have the last word.
    As to forums, what else is there to do during the boring, hot mid-day of an Arizona summer? Come cooler weather, you'll be wondering why I don't call, don't write.

    I'm off to hunt for that Leopard seat. Finding one to actually BUY, is turning into a frustrating quest.

    I wear old school (USA) hi-tops when I ride. I also wear the five-tens.
