Item # FVT2006

Carving it's own niche.

The Five Ten Impact Low Shoe is quickly achieving legend status among the big-bike set. The Impact Low combines Five Ten's sticky rubber sole, an Action leather upper, mesh venting panels and Slingshot construction for an unmatched combination of freeride performance and comfort.

The Impact Low 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 is extremely 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 Low a compression-molded polyurethane midsole to absorb vibration and impact to reduce fatigue.

The Impact Low'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 Low Shoe comes in Team Black and Pacific Blue. It's available in half sizes ranging from US 5-13, and size 14.

  • Abrasion-resistant Action leather
  • Lateral mesh venting panels

First pair of MTB shoes for Sasquatch

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 14

Bought these as my first pair of MTB flat pedal shoes, I have wide feet, these shoes fit great, tacky soles and nice snug support. Super happy!

Just like the OG Five Tens

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 11.5

Ive had the OG Impacts in the past and these are just as good, the fit is the same and the construction looks just as good maybe better. Awesome for riding with flat pedals! nice and sticky.

A Classic Improved

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

Having spent nearly 10 years on the original Impacts, I had a certain set of expectations for the next generation. As one of the few who are stubborn enough to ride big days in the woods on platform pedals, one of my biggest complaints of the old Impacts were their spongelike nature. My ski boot dryer got more action in the summer time than winter months with one or two creek crossings in most decent rides. Truly enjoying the water resistant nature of the new Impacts, having spent rainy days in Oregon and crossing mountain streams in the Idaho backcountry without my feet spending the entire ride feeling like I had a pair of sponges on. The fit of the new Impacts stays true to the original fit, and the lighter weight (albeit not much) is much appreciated. Though I haven't needed to test the new toe box construction, it definitely appears and feels sturdier than the first generation.

Are the colors represented in the pictures visually true or are both the black/red and black/blue both actually the matte colors as the black/blue is ? As from looking at the black/red it has a fairly glossy look to it and that kind of turns me off from them. I'm trying to keep my clothing pretty much matching, color wise.

Best Answer

Hey Steven - The Carbon Black (what you call Black/Red) does come with more of a gloss on the leather upper compared to the Black/Blue which is a matte finish. I will say that after a couple rides that gloss is going to fade a bit. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions on Five Ten bike shoes, I own a couple pairs.

Awesome Shoes

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

These are great shoes for riding DH or bike parks. A little on the heavy side for long pedals. Super burly construction and awesome sticky rubber.

Built for the Bike Par

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 12

The pictures don't really do these shoes justice but they are *bomber*. Very durable outer materials, chunky rubber, and a large stiff midsole.

These would pretty much suck to pedal uphill (except for short climbs) but solid going down. I'd reserve them for riding chairs.

Fit is true to size and not too narrow. Padding around the hell offers some heel protection and great heel retention.

Great at holding your heel down

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love the heel pocket in these. They feel super secure compared to other shoes Ive worn from 5.10. Held up to the abuse Ive thrown at them pretty well so far too.

I wear a size US11 / CM29 - Do these shoes run small or larger than regular tennis shoes? I also have a wide foot...

Hey David - In my experience Five Ten shoes run true to size or if anything a little large. I typically size down a 1/2 size in Five Ten bike shoes. If you have a wider foot I would say the size 11 would be best for you. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.

Good not great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I have been wearing theses for a couple years now and have always liked them but switched to the five ten free-rider contact shoe and base my 3 star rating on that.
Pros: Very durable, quality materials, good for downhill. Can take a beating .
Cons: big/bulky construction, not as comfortable and light weight as the free-rider contact shoe. Very sticky rubber but not as good as the contact shoe. I feel like the only reason to buy these over the contact shoe I have mentioned would be for price and that you are more of a downhill rider.

Great shoe!

  • Size Bought: 8.5

Great shoe, fits true to size with loads of grip. The only thing better here on Backcountry than their products is their customer service people. Thanks Backcountry I will definitely be back.


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

These shoes make all the difference. I've tried skateboard/bmx shoes/hiking boots and these are way better. Even without toe clips the pedals will stick to your feet.

feels like a clipless clipless

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

The stealth rubber on the sole of these shoes is great. Also climb in a pair of 5.10's. The quality is definitely there! cant wait to get some more rides with them.

THE shoe for MTB'ers who prefer flats

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

As someone who just doesn't like the feeling of being clipped in, these shoes are amazing because they have so much grip to your pedal pins that you don't really feel like you're making a compromise. Also very comfortable for those stretches where you have to hike your bike up something steep, which I do quite frequently. I've put over 1,000 miles on them since last spring and they're holding up great.

Best DH shoe on the planet!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Sticky rubber clings to flats especially when cleaned after each ride. Stiff soles protect feat against pedal strikes and big hits. Extra padding is also nice. Buy them! I have gone through 2 pr sam hills, 2 pr free riders and 1 pr impact low. Impacts are my fave for DH for sure. If you want a more supple shoe for DJ or AM go with free rider. BTW- I have had no quality issues with any of my 510s. If i did i know they stand behind their product. Too bad other reviewer did not return delamed shoe. Keep in mind that these are made with climbing shoe rubber. Never store in hot car. They will delaminate for sure!

Insanely grippy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is probably the most tacky shoe on the market. Almost too much, as it makes re-adjusting your foot difficult at times. Unfortunately, it tends to take on water and hold onto it like it does pedals...not good if you are riding in the wet all day long.

What is glue?

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

These shoes have really sticky soles so they stick to the pedals well. But the problem is the sole doesnt stick to the shoe. I had the sole falling off within 2 weeks. I would never recommend spending money on these.

The Ultimate Flat Pedal Shoe

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

I have mediocre pedals and I used to ride with mediocre shoes on. After hitting a few jumps and smacking my shins because my feet flew off the pedals I decided I needed a change. I found these lovely shoes. With Five Tens Stealth rubber these are the best mountain biking shoes ever. There's been times when I felt like I was clicked in and I had to physically rip my foot off the pedal. I will never ride without these. They are also pretty stiff so you have better control of your bike. I wear a size 8.5 and they fit true to size.

The BEST grip for flat pedals

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

This version is slightly different from the last - it doesn't have the higher inside ankle cuff, the tongue doesn't sit as high out of the shoe, and the breathable material on the sides is no longer the aerated leather, it's now mesh. For reference, I wore a 10 in my previous Impacts and got a 9.5 in this version. They feel about the same as far as fit and comfort go.

It's still big and clunky compared to other flat pedal shoes, but none of the others can compare to this shoes' level of grip. I have a set of the Five Ten Spitfire low tops, as well as a set of the new Freerider VXi shoes.

The Spitfires are similar to your average skate-style shoe as far as support (i.e. none), fit and weight goes, but with slightly better grip. The Freerider VXi shoes are lighter and less clunky than the Impacts, and on par with them as far as stiffness and support, but they're also less grippy.

For outright support, stiffness and grip, the Impacts can't be beat.

Won't ride without them

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

I broke my foot this spring and so I ordered these shoes because I heard they offer they best protection and I didn't feel like re-injuring myself. These shoes do not mess around. They are heavy duty and I no longer have the fear of jamming my foot and re breaking it. They also offer stiff soles and amazing grip on the pedals so your feet stay put while you're riding. I don't know if Five Ten offers a woman's Impact, but as a female with a narrower foot, these are super comfortable and fit my feet perfectly, there was no break in time. The only con is that because they are such a serious shoe they take a REALLY long time to dry out after a wet ride.
