The Sam Hill is based off the original Impact Low, featuring a faster drying synthetic upper, stitched toe, and a waterproof insole board. Five Ten worked closely with Sam to design a shoe which would perform as well as the original Impact, with the key features that help Sam find such incredible racing success. With a Stealth S1 rubber outsole, the Sam Hill is burly and durable. A slingshot heel for a secure fit, compression molded midsole for extra support and a stitched and reinforced toe cap for protection from the hazards of the trail make the Sam Hill comfortable and protective.

Stealth S1 is Five Ten's classic rubber that clinched Five Ten's reputation in the bike world. Its high friction and abrasion resistance make it one of Five Ten's most versatile compounds. These rubber outsoles provide high-traction and all-terrain grip, while maintaining the durability expected from Five Ten's toughest shoe. The Sam Hill includes additional support and durability via the waterproof polypropylene insole board and stitched toe, and the combination of leather and synthetic in the upper allows for faster drying.
