We are not fair-weather riders. We ride every day--regardless of the weather. We ride to school, to work, to play, and since Five Ten is all about performance and technical advantage, we’ve upped the bar by adding a new winterized Freerider VXi. This all-mountain shoe has a DWR treated synthetic upper that beads and repels water like a duck . Inside is a PUR foam insulation that wicks sweat but adds that touch of warmth needed to fight freezing temps. The outsole package is STEALTH MI6, a revolutionary new STEALTH rubber with unprecedented shock absorption and grip.
Technologies: The ideal compound for hiking and mountain biking shoes because it absorbs far more shock than traditional rubber outsoles. The high friction rubber is also designed for durability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by weegi Superb on pedal, poor off it
This is my second pair of Five Tens, bought for the "Elements" feature in the hope that these would be a better shoe for the Scottish winter.
First off all the shows "on pedal" are very good but this causes issues when you are off it (hike a bike time). The sole of the shoe is close to being completely smooth, only a very small section has the usual grip.
This gives the shoe an incredibly sticky contact area for the flat pedal but at the cost that if you are caught in the likes of snow or mud then you end up being Bambi on an ice rink.
For trail centres then I can't fault it, sticky without stopping you from moving your foot on the pedal when needed. Just be careful if you need to hike a bike thru mud or snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gaba Ottima suola, tomaia appena sufficiente
Suola dal grip eccezionale. La migliore che abbia mai provato, Impact comprese.
Buona protezione del piede, superiore alle aspettative.
Qualità della tomaia un poco deludente: “plasticosa”.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happydoors If you want dry feet look no further
Have had these now for a few months and over some pretty boggy fileds and I must admit as long as you dont get your foot totally submerged then you will have totally dry feet. The comfort is adequate and they stick as good as an other 5 10s on the market but as I said...a must for the Irish and British wet weather.
