Positive Reviews:

I have had these shoes for almost two years now, and they see regular use. They are very boot like; heavy, high on the ankle, and fairly rigid yet they still have some flex and cushion. Also, like a boot, they do a pretty good job at shedding water. The foot bed is very comfortable, and slipping them on and off is relatively easy. These are not pretty shoes, but they are very functional. I do a lot of riding in and around the Wasatch Mountains, from DH resort riding to quasi-CC 6 hour grinds along the Wasatch Crest then bombing back down to the valley floor. These are the only shoes I use when mountain biking now. As a side note: They are great for stomping around the dog park too.

These shoes have replaced my 1st generation 5.10 high top Mt. bike shoes. The stealth rubber is awesome, so awesome it almost feels like your using SPD shoes given how well they grip. The one stand out thing for me is the rigid sole, it's really noticeable when railing single track. I wish the style was a little better. The smoke pattern is kind of lame and the blue wouldn't have been my first choice. The high ankle on the crank arm side is just as high as a regular hightop. Buy them, you won't be disappointed.

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 glue.

Negative Reviews:

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. :(

Neutral Reviews:

I got these shoes for a mix of riding. Trail riding, xc and dirt jumps. I've had about 6 months on them. Some impressions: 1. These shoes are big physically and a bit clunky at first. They're heavy. 2. They provide excellent protection, with a firm toe box. 3. They are are kind of high - as in the distance between the bottom of your foot and the pedal is noticeably higher than other shoes - this took a little getting used to. 4. In the summer, these get pretty warm. 5. If you get caught in a rain storm, and water gets in around the ankle area, these retain all the water and turn into boat anchors. 6. Each shoe has seven (7) 5.10 logos on it... seriously! 7. The styling leaves a bit to be desired, but I'm not going to knock them for that. I will remark on the grippy rubber that comes up and around the side of the shoe - this is really extraneous and unnecessary in a biking shoe. The flap that covers the laces doesn't cinch down well and you end up looking like Perseus with his winged sandals. 8. The sole is sticky - it takes some getting used to, particularly when jumping. The sole is relatively stiff. You don't feel like your sole is bending around the pedal when riding uphill. That said, these have been decent shoes. I listened to the hype and expected more. They really are best suited for gravity. If you're going to do a lot of mixed trail riding, I suggest looking elsewhere.

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.
