Not Quite Five Ten
I have been wearing Five Ten shoes for a few years now and they just can't be beat for Downhill. The soles are super sticky and stiff making it very hard to slip a pedal. These are just slightly too soft and not quite sticky enough to be great for downhill. I do like these for dirt jumping where you want to be able to move your feet on the pedals easily. If you are looking for an alternative to Five Ten these aren't far off. They also have the killer waffle pattern.
