Practice makes perfect.
If you spend as much time as MegaSkill riding hay bales, jumping over trees, and getting creative on the trails, you should be rallying around in his signature kicks—the Five Ten Danny MacAskill Shoes. Based on Five Ten's trail-rippin' Freeride Shoe, the Danny-optimized version features a beefed up toe box and heel counter to reduce shock from those occasional proficiency-dialing bails.
Sticky Stealth S1 dotty rubber along the full length of the outsole lends much-needed traction when you're spinning on trailhead signs and scrambling along spiny Scottish ridges, and a springy EVA midsole adds some similarly important cush for the days you're out practicing for hours on end. Five Ten couldn't neglect style in a shoe made for Danny, so it shaped its signature leather uppers into a clean, understated design, ready to withstand Danny-level abuse from the hills of Scotland to your own backyard.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I got these to ride it, just a light weight, fairly minimal shoe with a grippy sole. When they arrived, I tried them on and walked around the house, so comfy I ended up just wearing them all day, sort of forgot I even had them on. The rubber is what you would expect from 5.10, they grip my pedals like fly paper. Couldn't be happier, I have been wearing the 5.10 Sam Hill Impact DH shoes but felt they were a little bulky and would hit my stays from time to time. These Danny Macaskill shoes were exactly what I was after.

Solid shoe with quality rubber. I particularly enjoy the aesthetics as well. It's a clean looking, low profile shoe.
