Five Ten Impact High Shoe - Men's $139.90
Racers and freeriders rejoice.
The Five Ten Impact High Shoe is the younger twin of the Impact Low, which is quickly achieving Legend status among the big-bike set. The Impact twins combine Five Ten's sticky Stealth rubber, an Action leather upper, mesh venting panels and Slingshot construction for an unmatched combination of freeride performance and comfort.
The Impact High Shoe has a Five Ten Stealth rubber sole. Stealth rubber gives you tons of grip so your feet stay firmly planted on the pedals. This soft rubber compound also provides grip when you're off the bike scrambling up a sketchy section, and isextremely durable. No other rubber out there is as sticky and lasts as long against the offenses of the gnarly traction pins on your pedals. Five Ten also gave the Impact High a compression-molded polyurethane midsole to absorb vibration and impact to reduce fatigue.
The Impact High's upper is burly, abrasion-resistant leather upper that holds up to season-after-season of ridiculous off-road abuse. Mesh panels on both sides of the shoe promote cooling airflow to keep your feet dry and comfortable while you ride. Slingshot construction at the heel locks the foot down for a secure, comfortable fit. This eliminates heel-lift, which causes hot spots and blisters. The Impact High also features barrel-lacing to prevent ‘lace-bite’ during long days in the saddle.
The Five Ten Impact High Shoe comes in Black with Reflective Silver accents. It's available in half sizes ranging from US 5-13, and size 14.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am a huge fan of the hightop Impacts, they a super cushy and offer tons of ankle protection, so when you case something or fail some huck you can avoid a twist or sprain. They stick to the pedal pins as if you're clipped it but give you the ability to easily bail if needed. They run a bit small so if you are inbetween sizes I would recommend going up a half size.
After a couple of years of regular use they barely show signs of wear.
