The Five Ten Men’s Impact Karver Bike Shoes provide the grip of Stealth S1 rubber, extra mid-top protection on the inside of your ankle, and a cover to keep your laces from getting sucked into your chain. Basically, these shoes are all you need to crush a nasty freeride trail or leave your friends gawking during an urban assault. No matter your style of riding, these Five Ten shoes rule as long as you’ve learned the advantage of flats.
The Five Ten Men's Karver Shoe. Built for bumps, logs, and jumps. Designed for flat pedal mountain biking, the Karver offers unprecedented freedom from clips. The mid-height ankle has moderate padding for comfort and control, and supportive action leather uppers protect your feet. Stealth S1 outsoles are the stickiest interface between pedals and feet available.

I bought the shoes for my bike a couple months ago. I was just waiting on my Straightline pedals To show up. I tried clipless pedals and I decided I did not like them. Some random person I was passing mountain biking recommended trying 510 shoes and some good pedals. Absolutely love the feel of the shoes how they grip the pedals and that I can wear them to the store after I'm done riding. I wouldn't change anything on these shoes.
Very sticky, great protection. Rode these for a couple laps at Downieville then all day Northstar the following day and very happy with them. I put super feet in which I think is a must.
You need to like this shoe when you order it. It's bullet proof. It may never wear out. Stiff, sticky, and comfortable.
Grippy. I like to wear clips for DH. These are the closest thing when riding flats. Great shoes
Just like the Impact shoe, but with more ankle protection, and my laces stay tied.
the cat on the bottom of the sole means business.Seriously....glue...like glue.
I'm not sure what's going on with 5.10 and their shoes, but I've already owned a pair of these that I loved -- until they packed out and started making my feet ache and giving me insane calf and knee fatigue. So I bought new ones from BC,thinking it was just the age. Turns out -- it's not. The new ones have KILLED me, even though I ordered a size down to prevent packing out and they fit great. The pain only exists when I'm wearing these (as opposed to my Shimano SPD's or my Shimano clipless DH shoes), and I'm really sad about it -- the Stealth rubber is the jam. :(
The fit of this shoe is a bit uncomfortable at first and takes some getting used to with the raised ankle cover. Loads of foam that will break in over time. Shoe is definitely built for DH use. Stealth rubber is as grippy as grippy can get. I'd look to something with a little less bulk if your doing more freeride style riding.
