Is 5.10 owned by Adidas?
Originally an American brand founded in California in 1985 by Charles Cole, Five Ten became one of the top-selling climbing shoe manufacturers worldwide by October 2011. In November 2011, Adidas purchased the company for $25 million USD in cash.
Are Five Ten shoes wide?
Late reply, but the short answer is: the Five Ten Impact VXi. They’re not “extra wide” but wider than average, and they’re very high volume shoes, so the uppers will flex enough that a wide foot feels fine and won’t have as many hotspots.
Do 5’10 shoes run small?
I would say they fit true to size as long as Vans doesn’t run smaller or bigger. I normally wear 13’s but had to order 5/10’s in 14 to fit. I wear 13 vans and I wear 13 in five ten. They fit a bit snug but that’s how I like any performance shoe to fit.
Are 5’10 shoes waterproof?
Five Ten are a top brand and l am surprised that this has happened. An email to Five Ten (we bought them direct) produced the reply that they are water “resistant” but soaking wet feet after the first puddle is a disappointment in shoes that cost over £100.

How tight should mountain bike shoes fit?
Mountain bike shoes should be snug but not too tight. Some shoes are expected to get a bit loose after some wear. The snug fit of the mountain bike shoes should be felt in the heel most of all, but note that pressure on your instep should be even. Make sure that you have enough toe room to wiggle your toes.
