Smash rocks, not your feet.
If you ride downhill on flat pedals, and you don't own a set of Five
Tens, you're doing it wrong. But, you probably knew that already.
Nestled between the legendary Stealth rubber sole and the protective
high-top cut, the Five Ten Impact High Shoes will keep your feet on your
pedals -- simple as that. And, although they haven't changed much in
the past decade, there's a reason for that. After all, when you have
something that works this well, you stick to it. Get it?
Arguably, the most important feature of the Impact High is the sole.
Why? Well, because it's been constructed out of Five Ten's Stealth
rubber. And if you've been riding flat pedals for a while, you know that
this high-friction compound yields tons of grip -- far more than your
standard skate shoe. The rubber is laid out in the classic dimple
arrangement that's been part of the Impact line since its inception. And
that means that they'll cling ferociously to your pedals, even in wet
conditions and on rough trails.
The Impact is Five Ten's flagship gravity shoe. Accordingly, it's
been built to be protective. There's a stiff shank in the midsole, which
fights foot fatigue on long runs, yet still flexes enough to provide
excellent pedal feel. The rubber toe cap protects your digits from
on-trail debris. And if you've ever smashed your toes while getting a
little too wild, you'll appreciate just how important this is. But, it's
the high-top cut that makes the Impact High arguably the most
protective flat-pedal mountain bike shoe out there. It's built for full
coverage, so you no longer have to worry about smashing your ankles on
your crank arms. And all the above means that you also won't have to
worry about your feet, whether you're cranking out laps in the park or
putting down race runs every Sunday.
The Five Ten Impact High Shoes are available in 18 sizes from five to fourteen and in the color Team Black.
