Five Ten Trail Cross Mid Pro - June 3, 2021, 1:56 p.m.

Apparently I'm "heavy on my feet", that's how my wife describes my surfing, so the sole stiffness thing for me is a downhilling necessity. Long downhills get painful with a flexible sole. Also starting to think the narrow toe box thing has contributed to my bunions. That said I do like the Trailcross, and would likely pick up a pair of goretex ones.

Five Ten Trail Cross Mid Pro - June 2, 2021, 11:07 a.m.

I got the first version of these a few years ago and found them a bit too light duty and flexy compared to the Impact High that I am accustomed to but always looking for an improved high top. Few weeks ago I got the new Impact Mid Pros and am happy with the improvements made that I've been waiting for. Wide toe box, kind of water proof, gusseted tongue, lighter. Couple hot spots since they don't have the padding they used to.

Here's some of my collection of high tops, missing from the photo is my Freerider Highs. I don't expect the new Impact Mids to be very durable since I do a lot of trail work in them. The materials look very similar to some of the other new brands of shoes that have come out recently.

Regarding fit, the shoes on the right were the same size I've always worn but these were the grey version and they must have shrank when they got wet and became really tight. Went up a half size, the ones on the left, and my feet were swimming in them. Went back down to my original size in the new Pro's and they are perfect. They also added a heel loop so getting them on is much easier now.

I think you are in low already.
