Who should buy Five Ten District Flats

The Five Ten District Flats is one-half of the District collection. The other half is called the District Clips shoe which offers riders a clipless option to attach their shoes onto the pedals. It is a solid option if you: 

  • Need a shoe that is equipped with technical cycling features such as water resistance, grip, and rigidity.
  • Prefer a shoe that has a reflective feature and is easy to clean.

Durable and unbeatable grip

The outsole is developed using the brand’s Marathon rubber innovation. This type of rubber ensures unbeatable grip and traction, ideal for technical terrains. Combined with a full Dotty tread pattern, the shoe provides high friction. The wearer could stick onto the pedals no matter how uneven the trail gets. It is also non-marking, which means it will not leave marks on indoor floors.
