Product Description

The Five Ten Impact High Shoe is the younger twin of the Impact Low, which is quickly achieving Legend status among the big-bike set. The Impact twins combine Five Ten's sticky Stealth rubber, an Action leather upper, mesh venting panels and Slingshot construction for an unmatched combination of freeride performance and comfort.The Impact High 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 isextremely 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 High a compression-molded polyurethane midsole to absorb vibration and impact to reduce fatigue.The Impact High'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 High Shoe comes in Black with Reflective Silver accents. It's available in half sizes ranging from US 5-13, and size 14.

Date Reviewed: June 10, 2012

Strengths:    Great ankle support. I use these for trials, DH and Dirt park. Very Warm: Good in Alaska. Sticky metaphors all used up. They stick great. Lasted for almost a year b4 exploding with failing seams.

Weaknesses:    The stitching that retains the laces unraveled and the places were it routes through the leather-like material at ankle pulled through. Velcro strap needed at top of laces. The laces get into chainring and f u up.

Bottom Line:   
It appears that newer models use eyelets for laces. Maybe that will work cause this style is not of acceptable quality.

Strengths:    Very high quality, durable materials. Comfortable and protective.

Weaknesses:    None unless someone doesn't like the clunky appearance

Bottom Line:   
I used these all last season and the beginning of this season and they've had lots of abuse - banging and scraping on rocks and sagebrush, etc. I'm amazed how well the materials have held up - no visible scrapes anywhere and no marks on the soles from all that stud contact. With an application of a cleaner they would look like new!

As mentioned repeatedly above they work very well and are comfortable and supportive. My ankles are weak and prone to sprains but none have occurred with these on my feet. They are comfortable for walking and could even be used for hiking boots if necessary. I have absolutely no criticism of these shoes.

Strengths:    Superglue traction, comfort, ankle support and stability

Weaknesses:    Nothing I've found yet

Bottom Line:   
This review is for the 08 Impact2 high-tops.

I never would have thought a shoe could make you a better rider before I rode these. The traction these shoes provide is absolutely confidence inspiring through the rough stuff and in the air. Wearing these it feels hard to find a wrong pedal position and the extra toe protection is nice when you catch a rock.

I'm also nicely surprised by the fit. I have wide (E/EE) feet that make finding comfy shoes a challenge and after a couple break in rides these things feel great. So far I'm hooked.

Strengths:    Very grippy!! Great combination of retention, and release when needed.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
Combined with the Tioga MX Pro platform pedals, these work excellent.

I have been using toe clips and straps since 85, and could never adapt to clipless pedals despite a couple dozen failed attempts, so I stuck with what worked.

I really like this new setup!! These shoes stick like glue. I can power the pedals almost all the way around the stroke, but when I want out, I am out!! It is nice to be able to restart on a tricky uphill, and just go. And on scary downhills it is a relief knowing you wont be stuck if you need out, which gives you more confidence to just go. If you do dab, you just put the foot back on and go. I went down a trail with a section of 18" stair steps and loose rocks, and my foot never even hinted at coming off the pedals!!

Strengths:    EVERYTHING! Awesome color, incredible traction, and really comfortable. They even come with black laces to match the color if you want. But most importantly, they stick to your bike like no other.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
The best biking shoe ever. No downhiller should ever be without them. You'll be stuck to your bike as if you're wearing clipless, but you can take your shoes off of the pedals as if you're not!

Submitted by a Weekend Warrior from St. Albert, AB, Canada

Date Reviewed: March 27, 2007

Strengths:    Stiff sole, fairly good grip, ankle support/protection

Weaknesses:    Footbed feels hard as a brick, making them not very comfortable. The sizing seems a little bit small, so you might need to go a half-size bigger, especially if you want to put in an nice soft insole.

Bottom Line:   
Meh. Yes, the have good grip on the pedals, but I think the level of grip depends more on the pins in the pedal than the shoe. The hightop is nice, but overall the shoe isn't very comfortable. Personally, I would save your money and buy a cheap pair of skateboard shoes.

great shoe. excellent support and traction. wear around the house 3-4 days to break in before taking on the trail. fits true to size. wear 11.5 sneaker and 11.5 in this shoe fits great. had to get used to the feel of the hard rubber toe piece at first but not even noticable anymore. Highly recommend! i need to order another pair to have on hand for when these wear out 5-10 yrs from now...

Strengths:    Awesome Construction,looks, ankle support, ingress, and egress, high shock absorpton, gorilla grip, one of the few high tops available in any category and relativley light weight.

Weaknesses:    None.....

Bottom Line:   
These work awesome, I can't imagine bike specific shoes working any better. Someone mentioned it before..They make you a better rider , not only knowing your feet won't come off but you need to make sure of your foot positioning before you set off, I've gotten good at positioning my feet right off the bat now, and even readjusting if need be. It's just that they grip so well they take a little getting used too, but it's a very positive thing. I like the styling also and will probably order more sets for street and casual use as well.

If this applies, maybe be careful on your moms floors they will leave a mark if you shuffle..this might not be a bad thing but , it's more a testament to their desire to become one with whatever they come in contact with...But let it be known so we don't upset mom...

These grip so well in fact,that it would be good to be cautious the first few times you ride ,until you get used to them. Repositioning your feet can take some getting used to.
I find it's easiest to stop the pedal at the highest point to reposition a foot on the fly..

If you really want grip out of your set up and don't want to go clipless, these are the soloution.

Awesome shoes for DH/Freeride

I was having a tough time learning to ride again without SPD clipless from my XC bike. I was thinking of going back to clipless for DH but tried these on and rode around a parking lot.
Wow! Never knew the right shoe could make this much difference.

I read a lot of talk that mountain biking is high impact for the forest and bush and i dont agree.
