Five Ten’s Access Knit wears a one-piece, non-marking outsole

Stealth PH is the name of the Access Knit’s one-piece outsole. It is a non-marking component made of military-grade rubber. It has low-profile circular lugs for enhanced slip resistance and anchoring power over loose soil. These grippy lugs are also present around the outsole’s sides, giving wearers ample lateral surface traction.

Since this brand-exclusive outsole has a forefoot extension, the shoe has improved frontal protection against stubby hazards.

Access Knit from Five Ten cushy platform

This approach-focused shoe from Five Ten uses an injection-molded midsole for footing stability and comfort underfoot. Its entirety is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA)—a material known for its lightness and high rebound rate. The medial and rear portions of this component are made adequately thick to provide sufficient shock absorption during heel strikes.

Rounding out all things midsole in the Access Knit is the gear’s default footbed. It has just the right amount of cushioning and contour for additional comfort and support.
