    I had a thread in the freeride forum about a Problem with my feet slipping off my pedals. Some people said get new pedals,some sadi get riding shoes, and some said it was the way my feet were positioned. I have been looking at the 661 Filter SPDs and 5:10s which do you think is better or should I wait till the new Vans come out.

    Why would you be looking at SPD pedals and then suggest 5.10s as an alternative?

    5.10 regardless

    Well the SPDs would require a different pedals and immediately make them more expensive then just getting 5:10s, plus then you have to get comfortable riding clipless

    I think it depends on personal preference (SPD/flats). If you have flats already and like how they perform, just get 5.10's and it'll be worlds different
