We've heard you running around town bragging about how you're the sports renaissance man. Pavement, dirt, bike, board, and slackline. If you do it all, you should take a gander at the Five Ten Spitfire Shoe. The Spitfire is just like you; it does it all. Five Ten's sticky Stealth outsole keeps you stuck to your pedals, grip tape, or nylon webbing without leaving any trace that you were there.
Some days are almost too hot for shoes. For those sweatfest times, the canvas Spitfire offers a breathable, durable cotton canvas upper that keeps your dogs cool. A new EVA midsole adds more power to the pedals while keeping the shoe light and nimble, and a classic skate profile adds movement and flexibility. Designed for pavement, dirt or board, slackline and BMX tricks, the Spitfire's one-piece molded Stealth® outsole provides ultimate traction on all surfaces.

I got a pair of these in black as a casual/everyday wear alternative to the Impact Lows and I'm loving these shoes so far. They seem maybe a smidge stiffer than my Vans Valiants up to the front of the arch and about the same from the ball of the foot forward. Very comfy for everyday wear and seem to work very well on the bike tooling around the hood (haven't worn them on the trail yet, I've stuck w/ the Impacts for that so far). Pulled out my board yesterday and screwed around for a while in them and they seem like they'd work great for skating as well. They seemed to be solidly put together as well, I wouldn't expect them to fall apart before the soles are worn out.
Wish they had come w/ a second set of (white or grey) laces like the Impacts did, but that should be easy enough to remedy.
Sizing seems a little big, but not all that off, maybe a half size big for me. I usually wear a 12 in Vans and most Adidas and between an 11 and 12 in various styles of Docs. The 12 in the Spitfires are a bit long, I probably would have gone w/ an 11.5 if they were in stock, but they fit well enough to keep for me.
I normally wear US12 in most shoes. My left foot is slightly longer than my right by like 5mm or so.
I ordered the US11.5 because everyone said they run big, but I find it is probably ever so slightly too small in the left foot.
If I was to order again I would get the size 12
But these shoes are great, I love the blue colour and they are super super sticky on my pedals for my mountain bike.
I replaced my Five Ten Freerider with the Spitfire. I made the switch because the spitfire has a softer tongue, which is definitely more comfortable on longer rides.
The only downside is that they are not as grippy with the Stealth C1 as the S1's were. It's great for trails and jumping for when I have to quickly move my feet. It was just nice to have the S1's grip like glue for DH.
These shoes are awesome. I was somewhat skeptical of how much a difference a pair of Five Tens would make, but I am a believer now. The first time I wore these out I was amazed at how sticky the soles are. I am a huge fan and would recommend these to anyone.
My brother bought a pair of these and he said they were comfortable. I was a little skeptical since I had tried the BA51C and found them to be very uncomfortable and un-supportive.
These on the other hand, er foot, rock! Super comfy, super sticky on the pedals and look great too.
For the price, it doesn't get any better. After months of thrashing the hell out of these shoes on several rides a week, they've held up quite well. The sole is showing signs of thrash from the spikes in my pedals but they still stay stuck like glue.
These shoes look great are comfortable and light but unfortunately are sized at least a size to a size and a half too large. I ordered size 11.5 first returned them for size 11's but still large but im keeping them anyway. I wear size 12's in adio's and DC's so am a bit pissed about this so only 2 stars especially for 90 dollars. Its buyer beware when ordering shoes or clothes online though i suppose.
The main seem along the inside of the left shoe failed after one week of wearing as walk around town shoes. The sole lacks any cushion or support. Deeply disappointed.
They look great, but don't last that long. Inside of sole disintegrated. Heel developed holes. Dissappointed in the durability. Owned these and the Wild Blue Yonder - same performance. They ran a little wide in my opinion.
