I currently have some Five Ten Impacts, great shoes but take a long time to dry out when they get wet...as we head into what might be a wet Autumn/Winter any recommendation a for a shoe that's up to the job?
Flat Shoes in The Wet...Any Recommendations?
Blatant plug but Sombrio Shazam X are perfect in the wet. Now discontinued but I have a pair in a UK 8.5 for sale in the classifieds.
Five Ten Freerider Elements
Though less coverage than the Impacts, they a) don't make you look a bit "special" and b) cope with getting wet way better than the impacts.
The more open style I've found is no problem at all. My Impacts are now spares just in case the Freerider Elements get soaked, but they dry out fast overnight so never really need the Impacts as spare anyway.
Five Ten Karver............they have a flap over the laces to prevent most of the water getting in. Or with Impacts/other 5-10s, you can use a bit of thin rubber held in place by the laces top and bottom which does the same job.
Lace flap and not such a sponge as 5-10 impacts.
New vxi impact. 100% less cardboard.
Freeride elements. Brilliant shoes, perfect for your needs.
Shimano withstand spray better but Sombrio (X-Float) dry much faster. Not tried 5.10s because if the sponginess of Shimanos is anything to go by then 5.10s must be horrific.
Well done, dissing something when you haven't even tried it!
