Any recommendations for flat pedal shoes? Been using some old Impacts and some Ion Raids recently but they're needing replaced. The Ions are nice but maybe a bit stiff and not as grippy as the 5Tens. Is there anything that is as grippy as stealth rubber?

As long as the Earth is flat, my pedals will be too.

NEXT.

How about plastic pedals like Kona Wah-Wah?
My feet hurt noticeably less on plastic than with metal pedals (Vaults, Spikes and Boomslangs)

I haven't had any problems with comfort, either way I still need new shoes. Unless you're talking about riding barefoot.

FiveTen is pretty tough to beat... any reason you don't want to stick with them or are you just looking to try something new?

I’d check out Ride Concepts. I got tired of 5.10s falling apart so quickly regardless of the model I got so I tried the RC Wildcats. Finish and quality was definitely better than 5.10 so out of the box they seemed better already. Grip wise, they’re definitely close to 5.10. With a good pair of pedals there’s no lack of grip. I didn’t have a chance to try the Powerline (as I went to clips, gasp!) but they have an even more grippy rubber than the Wildcats did. I think you’ll be impressed with RC! Silverfish does them in the UK as well so should be relatively easy to obtain.

Pretty pleased with my RideConcepts Wildcats so far. They wear in pretty quick and aren't as stiff as the Impacts but they're better than Freeriders

Another vote for Wildcats. Really comfortable for me, and I liked the reinforced toe box. Agreed they aren't quite as grippy as 510's but didn't a day at the park last week without issues.

I like my Shimanos a lot. My favorite feature is the lace cover.
