We don’t know anyone who’s tried Five Tens and gone back to another brand, and this high-top model adds weather protection to the astonishing Stealth rubber performance.
The fat padded tongue and upper is designed for impact protection rather than weather beating, but the non-mesh ‘Action leather’ upper still shrugs off the worst of the wet and wintery stuff, keeping life bearable even on snowy runs and rain-lashed lift lines.
It’s the most slippery conditions that really showcase the trademark Stealth S1 sole. These shoes stay stuck to your pedals long after everything else has slid off and dumped you into the muck.
