Give me 5.10's and aggressive pedals. I can re-position my feet when I am pedaling since my weight is on my saddle to some degree. When I am standing I don't want my feet moving and I have put them where I want them by that point. I suppose there are occasional situations where I re-mount the bike mid-gnar and have to ride out standing with sub-optimal foot placement. Seems like a reasonable price to pay. The thing with sticky rubber and removeable pin pedals is that if I were to feel my feet were too hard to re-position I could just remove pins until I got the right level of stickiness. Then those spare pins could be used to replace damaged/worn pins later on. If soles are not sticky enough and I am already on an aggressive pedal with a full compliment of pins I can't do anything to make 'em stick more. So I'd rather start out with max traction. All that said I don't want those smooth 5.10 soles where any wetness makes walking treacherous. Give me the dot pattern soles please so I can hike-a-bike confidently as needed.
