The Good: As with all the stealth rubber FiveTen soled riding shoes, grip is second to none. In particular to the Karver is the lace cover, which in addition to keeping mud and water out of your laces (and feet), it prevents your laces from flying around and catching your bike... True story, at the 2010 Crankworx Garbanzo race, during my race run I clipped a tree with my bar at high speed and the resulting crash somehow ended up with me getting my FiveTen High Impact laces caught up in my seat post collar lever. I spent probably 20-30 secs trying to free myself from the bike as it was on top of me and no amount of struggling would get it off, I just had to slow down and unhook the lace. Looking back, had I been wearing my Karvers with the laces tucked out of the way, this wouldn't have happened. Hindsight's 20/20 or in this case 5.10?
The Bad: Not a lot I don't like, I guess I'd say the womens model not having a lace cover is odd. Maybe make the lace cover removable like in past years?
