    Sweet!

    I absolutely love my Grip shoes, but sadly they are wearing out. Make more so I can replace them.
    ...and I used my strength to rip my blouse...

    FiveTen Shoes Available in Feb 05

    Hate to recycle an old thread but the information is relevant. Just heard from my LBS that the FiveTen shoes (hi and lo top) will be available in Feb 05. Pricing isn't available yet but I've attached pics. Not sure but it seems they may only be available in black.

    and thank you for the notice. My old ones are looking rather hagard. Black is a fine color if you ask me, goes with anything.

    actually, next week I'll post some photos of them on my feet. The layout is virtually identical to the original low-top but the high top is full on as opposed to the original mid-top. Here are a few more angles:

    Any idea on the pricing? Not that it matters really, I'm still getting me a pair, just curious. Mmmmm high tops.

    I agree with you, quite ugly. They look like a cross between Doc Martin's and Nike's. I'd still sport 'em of course. I'm fortunately not that shallow yet, at least when I'm riding.

    Nope, no idea of the pricing yet. just email [email protected] for details on them.

    As for the comparison of these to a set of Rowley's....I guess you won't know til you try. I've got a set of Five Ten Approach shoes that have the same sole shape, footbed and arch with stealth rubber soles (not quite as sticky as the Dot rubber sole on the ones you see) and they are still way grippier than my Vans...gum sole and all. A really nice thing is the footbed is semi-stiff compared to a set of Rowleys so your archs don't scream at you.

    Acadian and tons and tons of people can vouch for how much of an advantage these things are on flat pedals.

    For proof...just take a look at any picture of Nathan Rennie over the past 5 years. They are the only shoes you will ever see him race in. The latest issue of Decline is a great example...he's sporting them this year and they haven't made them in almost 2 years.

    NOTHING is grippier than these bad boys...I rode with Vans Rowley's, Oakley's, Dually's, etc... and none of those even come close.

    Some might even say the 5.10's are TOO sticky since you literally can't change the position of your foot on the pedal once it's on - you have to lift your feet off to reposition it. Feels like you are clipped in!!

    these look sweet....I'm just a afraid they are going to bee too much....

    for those of you that have had previous experience with them. how do they generally hold up over time. Do they get torn up easily? just wondering if they'd be good for all riding or just a racing shoe.

    I've had mine for well over 2 years and use them constantly. Weekend rides, Big Bear weekends( gonna miss those), Weekends at Bootleg Canyon, etc... in dry and wet conditions, over 2 years and all I've done is change the laces. I've even spent a few whole days walking around in them at races and such and still the soles are great. I would say they are very durable.

    edit: You can buy re-sole kits too.

    yeah..resole kits available at www.stealthrubber.com

    believe or not, I've had my 5.10 Impact for over 3 years and they are still in pretty descent shape!! I don't walk around in mine, but only use them to ride. Like Red, most of my riding had been in dry weather tho...but I honestly don't think wet weather riding will have an impact on the durability of the shoe.

    Yeah Nothing does beat the 5.10s, I've got a pair of Intense shows still going, and I've got 4 pairs of 5.10 climbing shoes, nothing beats them on a rock wall.

    I have never owned the Intense version, but have used numerous 5-10s for everything from mountain biking, climbing, bouldering, technical approaches and hiking, to drinking in at the local pub. Never a problem, always reliable and durable, and strongly recommend the company to anyone. However, not to put a damper on this but pricing does matter as you can get a pair of approach 5-10s from Sierra Trading Post or Campmor for like $30. I'm not sure how different the Intense version is to justify not buying a similar style on clearance. Either way, I commend Bizutch for working the co. on this and other sites for the fr/dh scene. As long as the price is not way over what I can get in a similar model or if this model is very geared specifically toward mtn. biking, I'll pony up.
