- Confused by Five Ten choices
I have a pair of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Five-Ten-Guide-Tenie-Hiking/dp/B00HF1X2X4Posted 6 months ago

My main problem with Five Tens is the stealth rubber doesn’t last. I get a couple of years out of a pair. Old sponge-tastic Imapcts, newer Impacts, Freeride Elements. All about the same. Either detach around the edge or holes develop in the bottom.
Though I do like them, just it’s when I’ve got walking shoes that have lasted 20 years, but bike shoes that last 2. Admitted more riding than walking, but riding the shoes are just sat on pedals, not impacting ground. Even if they lasted 5 it wouldn’t be so bad.
I know you can re-sole them, but for the cost it’s another pair basically.
So on that note, I’m undecided which is best. I prefer the Freerider style, but none are more durable than the other for me.Posted 6 months agochiefgrooveguruMember

Of the current Freerider there are three different sole compounds: Mi6 are softest, S1 middle and Phantom hardest. The Phantom soles on my Freerider ELC are wearing much better than the Mi6 soles on my Freerider Elements.Posted 6 months ago
