Comfortable off-bike experience

The Five Ten Trailcross LT features Adidas shoes' classic trail-running midsole, which is designed with a thinned-out portion where the pedal and shoe come in contact. This provides an excellent pedal feel and less bounce from pedal vibrations. The rest of the sole is well-cushioned for a comfortable off-bike experience.

Excellent ventilation and fast drying

The shoes upper is crafted from mesh, providing excellent ventilation and fast drying that's ideal for midsummer and rainy adventures. Another feature that makes river crossings possible is two flex points on the medial side of the shoe. These two points act as drain ports to allow water to flow out of the shoe.
