Some of you are aware that I recently got back into Mtbing a year ago after a 12 year hiatus. Most of my riding is on Fromme (all trails) and Seymour.
My suspension has been professionally setup. I have OneUp flat pedals and Fiveten Freeride shoes. Lately my ankles hurt on sharp impacts. It was pointed out that the Freeride sole are very soft, especially after some use. So with my sz 11.5 feet, there's alot of flex on my feet and ankles.
Has anyone else suffered from this problem? Remedies?
I guess my options from least expensive to expensive;
1)Insole that has rigid support from heel to ball of foot.
2) Flat shoe that has way better support.
3) Switch to clipless, as those shoe have alot more support( don't know if I feel confident riding clipless on the shore, I like my quick reaction time if required)
Any recommendations on flat shoes that are more supportive? Fiveten Freeride Pros? Shimano GR9?
I've always receive great advice on this forum...... so thank you.
