Description

As the outgoing Impact Shoe's achieved renowned status among the big-bike set, Five Ten's VXi looks to keep the reputation going strong for another decade. Now using the Stealth MI6 rubber outsole, this Impact boasts 50-percent more shock absorption and damping than the competition.

This gives you tons of grip so your feet stay firmly planted on the pedals and the compound also provides grip when scrambling up a sketchy sections. Additionally, this compound is extremely durable to resist damage from traction pins. Furthering the new Impact VXi from the old model is a revised upper.

It's now slimmed down, yet it provides more protection than the original. The result is a 25-percent weight savings. To ensure the VXi's ready for the next ride, a quick-dry hydrophobic upper not only resists stream and puddle crossings, but helps rid the shoe of perspiration. The Five Ten Impact VXi Shoe comes in full and half sizes from 6.0 to 14.0, with two colors available; Team Black and Sam Hill.

  • Downhill and park riding
  • Stealth Mi6 rubber outsole
  • Compatible with platform-style pedals

Love these shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I had problems with my shoes slipping a lot when riding downhill. These shoes solved that problem, the soles are super sticky. After a couple months riding with them I have no complaints, great product!

Decent

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 9.5

The shoes look awesome, I'll give them that but they are nothing special especially for the price point. I'm not sure what changed with 5.10 over the years but these shoes are not like what they once were 5 years ago.

After my first ride I am already seeing wear in the soles where the pins of the pedal make contact. I remember owning a pair of 5.10s years ago that lasted me well beyond two years of DH racing. I couldn't wear those out if I tried.

What happened along the way?

Five tehn changed the rubber to their softer climbing rubber for the impact vxi. their traditional shoe rubber is the stealth s1, and this is their Mi6 rubber. for the more durable, less grippy version check out the impact 2 low.

How do these differ from the Five Ten Impact Low Shoe - Men's? http://www.backcountry.com/five-ten-impact-2-low-shoe-mens?skid=FVT2006-TEABK-S5&ti=UExQIENhdDpNZW4ncyBNb3VudGFpbiBCaWtlIFNob2VzOjE6Mzk6YmNzQ2F0MTQxMTEwMDAxMDE=

Luke, that is an older version of this shoe, this version is much lighter and more water resistant. I personally prefer this model to the other one. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at btanner@backcountry.com

The difference is the vxi is more waterproof, less heavy, and has Mi6 rubber on the soles as opposed to the Stealth S1 on the traditional impacts.

Great grip and light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are awesome for dh but I prefer the free rider contacts for all mtn riding. I cant seem to get change my foot to just the right spot as easily;y with this shoe as with the contacts but I do like how much burlier it is over some of the others for DH riding.

Great shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I really like these shoes. They do run about a half size small, I'm normally a 10 but got a 10.5 and anything smaller would not have fit. They felt great when riding and are very durable.

After 1 ride...

took these out for the first time over the weekend and after just 1 lap the sole is already peeling away from the shoe. unacceptable for a $180 shoe.

After 1 ride...

Super Sticky

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I use these shoes for everything from trail riding to downhill. They are fairly lightweight which makes them great on long climbs, but they are still super durable for the rough stuff. These feature the same super grippy rubber that Five Ten is known for as well.

Never really satisfied

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9

I've got to be honest, these shoes never really hit the spot for me. Really there are 2 reasons: The massive toe box and the quality of the workmanship on the sole. I wear a 9, and ordered them a half size down due to a few reviews that made that recommendation. The 8.5 felt "box-ey" and loose around the front of my foot yet my toes pressed against the end of the shoe. So I exchanged for the size 9. These were the right size, but the toe box felt massive. In order for my feet to feel naturally secure in the shoe I would have to tighten them way down and that was uncomfortable across the front of my ankle. (Is that a real place on your foot?) Every time I put them on I simply wasn't happy with the fit . That being said my feet always felt nice and cool which perhaps is the reason for the roomy toe box? Maybe the best way I can describe it is I felt like these shoes were designed to be worn with thick winter socks or something. Anyways, I'm done with the fit.
Other issue is a simple one, the sole of both shoes started peeling off after a few weeks of riding. Across the middle beneath the arch of my foot. Super lame. I guess the toe box was able to keep my feet cool but not the glue so the sole peeled right away. Dang it I drifted back to the fit!

Positive note(s):
Grippy sole
Light Weight
Durable (besides the sole there was no obvious destruction after weeks of aggressive riding)

Even Better than Impacts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9.5

I was a huge fan of the original Impacts and was hesitant to try another shoe, but these are even better. So much lighter, thinner and more comfortable with just as much grip on the sole. Especially great for those steep sections where you have to hike-a-bike.

Wicked Shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 5.5

These shoes are wicked amazing!! They're pretty sticky so getting your foot in the right spot is crucial before you descend. I wear Vans shoes women's size 6.5-7. Pedaling is easy, they're a little stiff to be hiking your bike up but aren't too bad. I wore them in 35 Celsius weather and my feet were a tad bit warm but not too bad! Have yet to try them in colder wetter Vancouver weather..

Huge Improvement

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 12.5

These are my third pair of Five Tens. I had the original Impacts, and I still wear Freeriders. Both great shoes-- but these are better. FAR lighter and more comfortable than the original Impacts. More comfortable and better sole/traction/protection than the Freeriders. These are great in the mud, however they are NOT waterproof. They do dry quickly, which is a plus, and they shed mud easily and clean up completely.

The soles are phenomenal. Stick to my RaceFace Atlas pedals through rock gardens, drops and G outs, yet I can reposition when necessary. Going to order another pair now, just in case they change them and 'lose' this winning formula.

What size shoe do you normally wear, and what size shoe did you get in these? This will be my first purchase of MTB shoes and don't have the benefit of being able to try them on at a local store.

How are these to pedal in? I am looking for an all mountain shoe for flats.

Mountain Goat Traction for Racecar Speed

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Impact VXi is another home run for the STEALTH rubber king. Whether you're a flats or a clipless rider, the Impact is available in both styles and worthy of an investment. With the VXi version, 5.10 went back to the drawing board and lowered the volume of the shoe as well as increasing durability, lightening the weight and building a cleaner aesthetic without sacrificing any of the qualities the shoe is known and loved for.



As a professional DH racer who loves rocking flats on nearly every bike, the only shoe I trust is the Impact -- my feet stay where they're supposed to stay so I can focus on keeping the bike underneath me. I use longer pins (up to 10-15mm pins depending on the track and the ride), for more stability, but even short pins grip the soles.



I find this new iteration of the shoe to be a bit more accurate of a fit, although still a bit packy after a few weeks, so I would suggest sizing down a half size. Other than that, I love how the shoe still molds to my foot, the newer lacing style AND the faster-drying upper, with the more impact-resistant layering on the toe box.



If you have any questions about these shoes or any other MTB or downhill shoes, please get in touch with me at abatty@backcountry.com or 801-736-6396 ext. 4768!

I love them!

These are super comfortable. They also have a good stiff sole that keep my feet from getting tired while standing on my pedals and the soles are grippy enough to hold on to my pedals. I wear a women's 7.5 and got these in a size 6, they fit perfect. Feel free to contact me with questions, shae@backcountry.com
