Starting on flats and need to decide on shoes. Will have to include skate shoes cause of my other interests and from other thread I will get some vans. I have had great success with my shimanos for clipped in DH/freeride but need to know how they feature on flats. 5.10s seem to own but they twice the price of shimano.

How do shimanos stand up to 5.10s?:confused:

510 is the way to go ! strong, grippy, durable, and it last forever !

i own atleast 50 different kinds of skater shoes and mountain shoes that are knobby, and all i can say is non of em are even close to compare to my 510's.

ive never tried the shimano's but i dont even think the shimano shoes will match the 510's as far as grip. the 510's grip so much to the point that you can actually lift flat pedals with it, kinna like if you were using clipless.

note: please buy the 510's you will never regret it, if you spend less buying other mountain shoes or skater shoes you will just end up spending double soon as they break or soon as they get deformed.

my 510's is a year old and still running like if they were new, i push my bike most of the time and the 510's durability is definitely the answer. 510's does not get all deform like my other mountain and skater shoes, and as bad as i wanna get the new 510's i cant since my shoes are still in very good shape.

take the advice dude ! im most certain that alot of people here will tell you the same thing. good luck !

5.10's are super sticky but tons of guys love them, i cant ride with them.

the shimano's are nice but just like most other skate shoes, i run nike 6.0's and after a season and a half they are doing great, and i have pounded them...all preference it is like suggesting grips, its tough.

5.10's with DMR V12 flat pedals rock!

I like the Sam Hill 5.10 shoes, but I'm not a fan of the (world champion) "rainbow logo" on them.

Look dude, don't be so gay by using the 'ol if so and so would you do it and jump off a bridge....in fact at this point I would say you should just go and jump off a a really tall bridge. :thumbsup:

Now back to my drunken point.... Of all products that are tested and sponsered, the only one that I have visually seen actually kick ass and make me thgiyfy6tr think 'wow, by golly that product must actually work' is those 5.10 shoes. Face it the damn Aussie makes the pedals stick like glue or something near as cool called clipless. So go ahead and jump off your bridge ya ***!

I have both the 5.10's and shimano DX.

The 5.10s are warmer, heavier and seem burlier.

They take about three days to dry if you get them wet.

I like the DX's in the wet since they have the flap that goes over your laces so your feet may stay drier... They also dry faster, 2 days...

Both great shoes! I got each for $50.00!

5.10s at the end of the year MEC blowout!
DX's at Performance Bikes, last pair my size!

If you put some newspaper inside the 5.10's and put them in the microwave for a couple of minutes in short intervals they dry up in less than half an hour. I know it because last Sunday before riding my shoes were dripping and I was in a hurry

Get the 5.10s. If you get them it doesnt even matter what kind of pedals your running cause they will always stick. At first if your used to skate shoes they feel to sticky but when you get used to them you will never go back. I mean hell 5.10s primary shoe sales are rock climbing shoes. They know their rubbers...

like said above five.ten knows rubber better than anyone else. you could even wear most of their approach shoe line and have crazy grip for a bit cheaper. climbing rubber is amazing for mtb
