January 09, 2013 -  Five Ten    
 

Every day when I get up I realize how blessed I am to work for a company like Five Ten and today was no exception.  After spending a month or so at home in the snowy mountains of Lake Tahoe I am back in sunny southern California hanging out and testing product with guys in the creative department. At lunch today Jesus, the “Norwegian”, and I went out to ride a trail called Jedi in Redlands, California. Jedi is just a few minutes from headquarters and a fun pedal with some little jumps and fun berms.

 

I hadn’t had a chance to ride in our new Diddie Schneider shoe so we grabbed a pair and headed out to “test” the final product. What we proved is that this shoe is not only a great building shoe but also a great riding shoe. It has a nice stiff Kevlar reinforced sole which keeps things like nails from puncturing through the bottom and pedals well too.  Accompanying the foot board the shoe has a composite toe which keeps you from smashing rocks when you are riding or if you happen to roll a boulder on to your toe building you are all good. We staged a mock wet weather condition when we ran across some wet dirt to test the lace cover and see how the shoe would clean up. I think the Norwegian just wanted to throw dirt at me but whatever I was riding my bike for work.

All in all I think this shoe will be a part of every rider’s quiver that does there part shoveling as well as riding. As you will all see I didn’t do any digging this time but don’t worry I will earn my turns another day.
