Description

I’m guessing I’ve put somewhere around 60 days on a bike and a few dozen more just walking around in the Sleuth DLX, and it’s held up quite well so far. I’ve ridden through puddles or creeks numerous times where it took a considerable amount of time for the shoes to dry; sometimes they were even damp the next morning. As you'd likely expect, the Sleuth provides a so-so level of rigidity and transfer of power to the pedals with its less technical nature.

With that being said, the Marathon™ non-marking outsole with Micro-Dotty™ tread does a respectable job with both pedal grip and off-the-bike traction.With the casual nature of the Five Ten Sleuth, we anticipated out of the box comfort and the Sleuth lived up to expectations initially.

I’ve done a fair bot of walking about town in these, too (not that you’re meant to), mainly because they are so comfortable and they’ve got a super casual vibe about them.

Interesting regarding the sole rigidity — I guess I’m either not as sensitive to that or just got lucky with the 5. While it’ll repel moisture for a bit, once that moisture gets inside the Powerline, it is quite slow to evaporate. Equal parts bike shoe and everyday sneaker, the Sleuth DLX is where Five Ten functionality meets the classic low-profile adidas silhouette.

It caught my eye, quite literally, because it didn’t look like the massive, bulky skate shoes that my friends had affectionately nicknamed “dinostompers” when they were popular for casual use in some circles many years ago. The Sleuth does work notably better on a mountain bike than, say, a Nike SB Stefan Janoski (my go-to casual shoe).The Five Ten Sleuth is a true fusion of style and function, engineered with technical cycling features wrapped in an effortless design. The Stealth® Marathon rubber cupsole has outstanding, non-marking traction thanks to its Micro Dotty pattern, gripping you towards the asphalt or your bike’s pedals all the same. I’ve got flat feet, and a big reason I ride flats is that shoes like the Impact Pro have roomy toeboxes and slightly wider midfoot, compared to the ballerina lasts that are apparently used for clipless shoes.
