I'm currently rocking some 5:10 chase shoes on the bike
and they're just not stiff enough. Grippy enough, don't look stupid but my feet ache after 5 mins continuous descending, let alone a 20 min DH/enduro stage
What's stiffer? I had my hands on a pair of Freerider VXi (or something) and they're nice - not too bulky and at least a little bit stiffer. not sure about the slick portion of the sole though (but that's been covered in another thread).
Are all the proper bike-intended 5:10s much of a muchness? What are your experiences/recommendations?
