The Five Ten Trailcross line is positioned as a versatile collection of mountain bike shoes that are suited for long days on and off the bike. Currently available in several different mid-height and standard models, with or without an ankle cuff, they’ve always been on our radar as a great option for bikepacking. Cass spent a long time in the Trailcross Mid Pro’s and describe them as what might be his “very favourite bikepacking shoes, simply because they’re so capable on the bike and comfortable off it.”
Just announced, the new Five Ten Trailcross GTX is the first shoe in the lineup to feature a waterproof Gore-Tex liner. They build on everything the rest of the Trailcross lineup offers but are designed for wet and sloppy conditions. They feature Five Ten’s Stealth Phantom rubber sole, a neoprene cuff to keep the gunk out, and a semi-flexible shank that’s suitable for riding, hiking, and everything in between. They use a lace-up closure with an elastic lace keeper.
Currently, the Trailcross GTX shoes are available on Adidas.co.uk and retail for £150 (~$200 USD). They come in sizes 6 to 13.5 and a single black/grey colour way. They are scheduled to be available in all markets this September.
