Five Ten hits a sweet balance of traction for hiking on loose surfaces and rubber against rock for climbing friction. Stability through the midsole lets you find your balance on a longboard deck or your unicycle pedals.
- Uppers are split-grain leather with breathable mesh inserts at forefoot and toes.
- Midsole use 2-piece compression molded EVA for good medial and lateral arch support, and some torsional stability
- Outsoles are grippy, frictiony Stealth S1 rubber. S1 is durable and absorbs more shock than standard outsole rubber.
- Dotty Ascent tread pattern sticks to slabs and gives you some purchase on loose gravel.
