    Question Recommendations for shoes to go with platform pedals

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    Hello all. I am new to the forum and have recently dusted off my old bike and gotten back onto singletrack. Right now I am just riding in my trail running shoes, because I figure when I get off to push (more than I'd like!) I ought to have good traction on the trail. Plus they're already dirty. But I know I need something stickier and with a stiffer sole and I'm not sure where to start.

    I saw Teva Links mentioned in another thread but they're a little more than I wanted to spend. I see FiveTen's pop up on ChainLove sometimes, but it's not clear to me which are best for mountain biking.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I have the Five Ten Impact and it's working well with the BMX pedals that I run on my mountain bike. Fit with Five Tens can be tricky. I had to order a handful of sizes and styles from Zappos to find what worked.

    Recommendations for shoes to go with platform pedals

    Well they all are going to run you about $100 unless you can find them on sale. There have previous threads here that name all the various options and how they fit.
