The Good: Amazing stick that we have come to expect from all five ten shoes with the added ankle support.
The Bad: At nearly two pounds, they are damn heavy for a pair of shoes.
Overall: this shoe offers the sick that we have all come to expect with all of five tens stealth rubber with the added protection from the the high top. The high top's help protect your ankle from rolling when you dab and from slapping against your crank arm or frame, which for me is rare but damn painful. The thick and rigid soles make long days on the pedals extremely comfortable, perfect for your lift runs this summer. These shoes are heavy, damn heavy but when I am on a 38LBS+ big bike the weight doesn't matter much to me. Bottom line is when ever I am riding DH I am riding in these shoes, its been that way for a few years now. The protection added by the high top is worth it for me. If you have not tried wearing impacts on a DH run, give them a try. It's almost like being clipped in on flats...
