    Where to find Five Ten Impact 2 Highs in Houston?
    I've been calling around and searching the internet trying to find a retail store in Houston that stocks the Five Ten Impact 2 High (or hell even the lows). REI shows they carry them on the website but neither store has them or seems can get them (backorder status). These are the shoes I really want to get, but I simply refuse to buy shoes without trying them on first; shoes sizes and fit can vary so much. Anyone know where I can find some locally?

    You go to www.zappos.com. order 2 sizes (they usually run small), so if you normally wear a 10 then order a 10.5, too. The shipping is free and there is no tax, You simply return the pair that doesn't fit via there free return-shipping and then you thank me later.
    Oh yeah, they usually get there in 2 days or less!:thumbsup:

    I'll keep an eye out and see if they ever get any 10.5's in. I guess I could try an 11 and see if they work, then send them back if they don't... Thanks for the link.

    Didn't mean to sound like a jerk. Too bad there out of your size. Zappos is top notch. Use it and you'll see what I mean. Five-10s do seem to run a tad small. I have the high and low versions. The high-tops don't get used that much really as I'm usually running the low top versions. The high-tops can get in the way if you're wearing shin armor. Something to consider. Good luck.
