You got the skills, you know you have all the tricks down, you have the best route to the top and are ready to leave everyone else in the dust but none of that will happen if you don't have a stable foundation. Footwear might seem like the least important piece of gear if you're biking or looking to do a trick at the park, but without a solid base there is nothing to build on. The philosophy of Five Ten is simple, stability, dependability and durability. With the Stealth technology providing traction on slick surfaces and allowing for a better feel of the rock surface, athletes are able to push their limits and expand their abilities knowing that when they plant their foot in a shoe created by Five Ten it isn't going to slip or slide leaving them free to reach for their next goal. Creating a lightweight shoe with superior traction has propelled Five Ten to the top of their game.
