Once on your feet the chunkiness is forgotten and they feel snug and secure. Five Ten have created this women’s version of the popular men’s Karver shoe with a narrower fit and have taken into consideration the differences in women’s sizing.
The inside ankle is much higher to give you more protection and the tongue of the shoe is a wrap-around design which increases the protection and makes sure they stay on your feet. Although they do not claim to be waterproof, the integrated tongue and Action Leather uppers work well to keep out the elements, whilst remaining breathable. These shoes certainly feel study and once you’ve laced them up you know they mean business!
Furnished with Five Ten’s legendary Stealth Rubber there is no doubt that your feet are going to stay put when riding even the most rocky of trails. This Stealth S1 compound is super sticky and really does grip your pedals like Thornton’s toffee grips tooth fillings. It’s also designed to absorb more shock than traditional rubber and be extra durable.
