You wouldn't find it in bike stores.

Put me down for two sets depending on cost etc if anyone is thinking of making an order.

If you do find 'em in the states, put me down for one set of regular size.

So possibly dumb question, my 510s always go excessively flexy before the soles are really that worn. I'm not shoe maker bloke but this is more related to the higher up bits of the shoe than the sole right?

What ones?

I don't know about the older impacts but the older freeriders are destroyed when they get flexy. I ripped a pair of mine apart to see how they were made/see if they were fixable.

I'd try my impact VXis that seem to be insole -> EVA foam midsole -> hard rubber -> soft rubber, with the silly "Mi6" super soft rubber almost worn through while the rest of the shoe is basically brand new.

Also I'd like to convert a non-fiveten shoe to stealth.

impacts, the few times I've gotten new ones I'm always amazed and how floppy the old ones are by comparison

I need to make a flop gauge so I can figure out replacement schedule

She's not keen on that, always said no when I've asked in the past.
