I got the Marzoochi Bomber shoes which is the 5.10 but with some upgrades. I love those shoes and would not hestitate to buying another.

High vs Low is more a matter of personal preference. Some guys like the extra ankle support while others like the mobility of the low top.

2.- Anke protection external injuiries: impacts, crashes, etc.
3.- Excepcional grip.

Just this was my choice:

Anyone have time on those handicapped, retarded shoes from Shimano? For some reason I kind of like the way they look. I guess we have choices to make in life....when riding, do we want to look like we are handicapped or a member of the Imperial forces.
