Preview: FiveTen VXi Elements

So I'm nearing my second month on the FiveTen VXi Elements shoe. New and improved upon, well that's what FiveTen says anyway. They resemble the classic VXi shoe, and in many ways they do, there is however a big difference; they use a brand new rubber compound; Mi6 rubber, according to FiveTen its their most grippy rubber yet.

The outer fabric is a DWR treated synthetic upper that repels water. Inside is a PUR foam insulation that wicks sweat but adds warmth. Handy in the cold I guess.

Weight (Actual, same size):
Original Freerider is 960g
Freerider PRO is 880g
Freerider VXi is 855g
Freerider VXi Element is 795g
The diet obviously continues..

These shoes can take a small shower..but when it really gets wet, the problems become more apparent, water can simply not escape.

So how does these shoes fare? Are they comfortable? How is the rubber? Is the shoe durable? Stick around as I do my review, right here on All Mountain Next.
