    I'm looking for something that can work with clipless as well as flat pedals, but I'm just not sure how well the tread on these will grip flats...
    I can't comment on the flat/clipless versatility of those shoes, but I am curious why you would want to make that a priority. It's not like you would ever switch between clipless and flat mid ride. The old saying "jack of all trades, master of none" comes to mind. You could buy those for clipless and some flat 5.10's on closeout for $55, and have the best of both for under $120. I just don't think any shoe that has a cleat in the dead center is going to be optimal on flat pedals.

    I already have clipless shoes, I'm really just looking for something to use with flats - maybe I didn't make that clear in my earlier posts. If you can find me these magical $55 5.10s (in a size 11.5 ish), I'll gladly buy them!

    Truth is, I will ride with my clipless setup 95% of the time, so I'm trying not to break the bank for the 1 or 2 times a year I'll use these...

    Here's their closeout page. Free shipping on most, too. Prices vary on size/color/style.

    I just tried on a few different pairs of shoes locally and bought the Terraduros at Mellow Johnny's. They were marked down to $100 from 180, so score on that. I doubt they have the HV version but you could at least try on the normal one and then order the HV.

    Spesh 2FO Cliplite fit quite poorly, felt bad, though tgey get good reviews. Spesh Rimes fit better but were still on the narrow side. Skipped 510 due to durability reputation. Wanted to try on before I purchased so my options were limited.

    Just make sure they are not the older version with the delamination issues... If they are you can get them warrantied.

    But I'm thinking that Mellow Johnny's should have know that and already done so. But it never hurts to check and make sure.

    BTW, the new version was also on my short list, but the prices I saw were a bit high for me. At $100 though, it's a good deal.

    FYI, stay away from the Mavic Crossfire shoes...they would be great shoes if the unlocking lever on the buckle didnt break so easily..Ive had to replace 4 of them within the year that I've used them..

    Here's an update on the Scott shoes that I bought a little less than a year ago...

    Fit still great... Easy to walk in, even in restaurants and grocery stores... Sole still stiff (my weight 250lbs, and very powerful legs).

    Soles show a bit of wear in the front, especially the two studs. But these are replaceable.

    I ride on average maybe eight times a month, 6-10 miles.

    All in all... Great buy for the price.

    Could not bring myself to pay $150 for Five Ten nonsense. Hopefully these hold up better than my Giro Jackets did.

    I've been using some of the new Afton shoes along with my collection of 5-10s. While the Afton's initially kept me feeling very connected to the pedals, almost like being clipped in, the soles have deteriorated relatively quickly, making them practically useless. It's possible that they would last longer with smooth-ended pins, but the pins I use just tore those suckers apart. This is the same thing that happened to my 5-10 Freerider Contacts, which are absent the normal tread pattern where the pedals make contact. Anyway, I'm sticking with the regular 5-10 Freeriders for now. The soles on those generally outlast the uppers for me.

    I've never paid more than probably $110 for 5-10s. Usually I just pick up a pair whenever I see them marked down, which sometimes means you can't get the color you want.

    I'm glad this has resurfaced. I've killed two pairs of Giro Rumbles since my post in this thread last year, doh!

    Giro Chamber or Carbide might be next. Really, anything sub 100 I'm looking at lol

    I have been on shimano for years and go through them too quickly. They are wide, but end up falling apart

    How'd they die? I had a Giro Carbide or something just unglue the sole from the upper. I read that the $180 Terraduros were having the same problem. Love Giro helmets, but it's Pearl Izumi shoes for me.

    The Terraduros have held up just fine, quality/reliability wise. But I would pass on these for one reason: the fucking tongue rotates out of center constantly. It is only anchored towards the front of the foot, where some are tied down along the length of the tongue. I don't know what it is but it rotates like crazy.

    Also, the buckle on one side is malfunctioning slightly. You normally can insert the strap into the bucked and it will ratchet as you insert it, locking itself down. But the one shoe must be ratcheted with the lever or else it will just slide back out. So, not really 100% on the reliability thing. The buckle is replaceable but I haven't done so yet and I'd much rather it just work.

    Lastly, probably unrelated to the shoe is that I started getting right knee pain after swapping to these shoes. I'm sure it has to do with cleat placement or something but I'll also note that the shoes that it replaced were almost as flexible as a pair of flip-flops (Pearl Izumi mesh something or others) so my feet/knees may have been used to more movement. The Terraduros feel like a stiff platform upon which to pedal. That is usually a good thing.

    First pair was splitting near the cleat and starting to come unglue'd at the sole. Was also missing chunks from the tread aswell. Warranty replaced after 5 months. Toe area on current replacements are pretty chewed up and the rubber is missing in areas.

    They're comfy but haven't held up.
