Since 1985 Five Ten has had a lasting influence on the history of climbing. The story of Five Ten began in Yosemite Valley. In the mid-1980s, the climbing grade 5.10 stood for absolute extreme routes with maximum difficulty. Charles Cole, founder of Five Ten and the first ascender of adventurous plate and friction climbs, began developing outdoor footwear after slipping and almost falling on a climbing route. His goal was to develop shoes, with a specially formulated rubber compound, that offers extra grip. The result was the legendary Stealth Rubber. Until today, it is still at the forefront of the most challenging routes with further developed compounds. Especially popular all-round shoes such as the Anasazi, that has only been slightly change since its presentation, also benefit from these detail improvements.
What started with climbing shoes has also become an integral part of mountain biking for years. On freerides, trails and downhills, wherever extreme conditions are to be expected, you will find Five Ten shoes like the Impact, the Freerider or the Kestrel. These bike shoes combine lightweight and breathable mesh and textile uppers with different rubber sole compounds. Thanks to these characteristics, it is hardly surprising that Five Ten shoes are regularly on the podium at MTB Downhill World Cups. They offer an absolutely reliable grip on platform pedals as well as on SPD click pedals, which is essential for control. Smart lacing and velcro systems, a regular fit that leaves room for insoles and well thought-out reinforcements in contact-prone areas are further features of the Five Ten mountain bike shoes.

This means that the combination of grip, solid craftsmanship and chic design is also ideal for approaching and everyday use. That is why Five Ten has a whole range of stylish approach shoes and sneakers, such as the Sleuth and the Guide in its range. The Trail Cross LT is Five Ten's latest answer to the need for a Hike&Bike all-rounder. It combines the unbeatable grip of a flat pedal shoe with the high comfort of a trekking shoe.
Absolutely reliable material is indispensable for the sporty field of application of the Five Ten shoes and often determines success or failure.
