Just saw that these have been released! I used to ride Five-Tens and have heard thse have been on the drawing board for a while. Althhough designed for flatties when MTB’ing or BMX i don’t see why they wouldnt translate to Fixed. Looks wise they remind me of Rowley XLT’s.

Flat pedal enthusiasts rejoice. We’ve created a shoe that not only performs on the bike, platforms, whatever you call your traditional BMX-style pedals, the Gravel shoes will stick to them like glue, thanks to our custom-designed TRAX® rubber outsole featuring our WaffleGrip tread pattern. The Vanslite™ midsole will keep the weight down and the comfort level high all day while the Impactsorb™ heel insert will prevent any heel bruising. The entire upper is wrapped in abrasive-resistant synthetic materials that also help repel water. A reflective sidestripe and woven labels top off the details.
