I am a five ten fan and these shoes are pretty sweet. They are stiff but still flexable enough for wearing around town if you remove the clips. I like that you have the option to install the clips or not, it makes these alot more versitile. Also they look nice, I'm not a spandex jockey and it seems like most of the clipless shoes are designed to been worn with a skin tight man-a-tard. Thumbs up to Five Ten for another great pair of shoes.
On a side note, they are a little on the wide side for most peddles cleats. So be aware of that when mounting the clips.
