We can’t even remember how many years have gone by since the launch of these sticky rubber soled shoes, but what we do know is that despite them hardly changing they’re still the shoe that everybody else is trying to beat when it comes to grip.

Have they succeeded? Have they f–k. Some other companies have recently just about crept into the same league, but it’s hard to imagine that there will ever be a day when somebody beats them. So, if you’re looking for maximum grip there really is no other place to look.

Five Ten now even have all style bases covered too with their new range of skate styles, but we reckon if you’re after a true DH shoe then the Impact’s are still the ones to go for thanks to the extra protection that they offer. A classic shoe if ever there was one.
