Five Ten Impact Pro Shoe - Men's $159.95
Get a grip.
Five Ten was the first brand on the market with a sole that gripped like crazy to your flat pedals, seeing they used climbing-inspired Stealth rubber on the bottom of the original Impact Shoes for sticky traction. After varying redesigns addressing issues of overall durability, the Impact Pro Shoe is back to solidify Five Ten's dominance in the world of aggressive all-mountain and gravity disciplines with its stout and sturdy design, complete with Stealth rubber that originally made it famous among riders using flats.
If you're going to ride with flats, then this is the shoe to have, at least if you don't want to slip off your pedals at an inopportune moment, only to fly off your bike at high speeds or suffer a painful pedal shot to your shin. That's because the newest version of the Impact Pro is using a Stealth S1 outsole with traction bumps throughout to dig into your pedals without slipping, even if it's wet and muddy on the trail. The upper is reinforced too, with a Poron XRD foam toe cap taking the sting out of slamming your toes on a fall or bashing the front of the shoes into a sharp rock.
- Sturdy shoes for aggressive all-mountain and gravity riders
- Stealth S1 rubber sole for outstanding grip, even in the wet
- Reinforced upper with abrasion-resistant synthetic fabric
- Poron XRD foam toe cap designed to withstand serious abuse

Grip & protection without the bulk
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you are a fan of the original impacts, then you'll like these. The impact pros are effectively a streamlined version of the originals. So far, they've offered all of the same protection and perfect amount of grip that sold me on the original impacts but in a lighter, more modernized package. I've already had the pleasure of kicking a few loose rocks while wearing these and my feet are no worse off. And, I feel much more connected to the pedals with the pros than I did in the original impacts. These articulate just a hair more and it is a noticeable improvement.
Fit is on point. I have a D/E width foot that does not fit super well into most of the recent offerings from five ten, but these have been superb. Toe box has plenty of room and heel hold is great. They still run 1/2 to 1 size small I'd say - I'm size 11 in most shoes and I went with a 12 in the pros. They fit very different from the brick-shaped VXi (which for me is a good thing), and construction is seemingly much better as well.
All in all this has been a great shoe that I'll be using for everything from XC to DH riding.
