Who clips in these days?

Some like to attract attention with their personal stylings, and for them, there's the Blue Zebra. However, if you like to let your riding tell your tale, then the Five Ten Freerider Shoe in black/grey will do the trick. The understated colors will help you keep a low profile, that is, until you tailwhip over the big double at your local dirt jump spot and stick the pedals for a perfect landing.

Five Ten's Stealth Rubber was developed for rock climbing shoes. As such, it has excellent gription which makes it super easy to keep your feet on the pedals. Just think, no shinburger for dinner... again. It's also super durable. It had to be tough for climbing shoes to suffer the wear and tear from hard granite cliffs for days on end. The Freerider Shoes may just have a tougher job. They have to endure the prodding from the metal spikes on your pedals all day, but the Stealth Rubber can take it. Five Ten Stealth Rubber soles will outlast the gum rubber sole on a conventional skate shoe every time and stick better to your pedals all the while.

The Freerider Shoe has all the style that you want and the bomber sole that you need to land big tricks without blowing your feet. The grey panels on the upper are made of brushed nubuck leather. The toe box is reinforced to provide added protection if you lose it in mid-air. And one of the coolest details is the California license plate on the back of the heel.

The Five Ten Freerider Shoe is available in Black/Grey, Red/Black, Red/Grey, and Orange/Grey and comes in half sizes from 4 - 12  and whole sizes 13 and 14.

  • Nubuck leather uppers with reinforced toe box
  • Stealth Rubber soles

I love these and they are great MTB shoes with solid grip! I usually wear a 10.5 in most sneakers but got a 10 in these and they fit perfect. I always wear a 10 in a slip on or sandal, so these run a tad small. Overall I have liked these a lot and they have held up.

A little wide if you are a smaller girl

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have a size 6.5 foot and got a 5.5 shoe. I have a very skinny foot and feel like these are pretty wide for my foot. I can't ever lace them tight enough to wear my foot feels snug. Other than that these shoes are great! I definitely will go with a shoe that fits my foot more next time so they aren't sliding around at all, but if you have a wider foot, or are a dude, you will love these shoes!

Great Grippy Bike Shoes

    Size Purchased: 5.5

This was my first real pair of biking shoes, as I had been using hiking shoes or trail runners for a bit. I can definitely tell the difference with the grippy rubber that keeps me on my pedals. They are stiff through the heel to arch of the foot enough to pedal, without being uncomfortable to walk in or to ride in all day. Sizing is true to size , I wear a 6.5-7 women's and went for the 7 in men's. Durability wise doing well.

Get a Grip

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Solid shoe at a great price. The stealth rubber is supper supple and grabs platforms like super glue. This does lend to decreased longevity, but its worth it to have such great traction. No one likes pedal-to-shin, and this compound will reduce that from happening. The upper construction is pretty durable, but the stitching has been know to come undone between upper and sole. Rest assured though, 5.10 will take care of you should this occur.

nice shoes

I've been wearing these for the downhill park this season and so far I'm really pleased with them. Super grippy and comfortable. Stiff enough that they pedal efficiently but not so stiff that they're uncomfortable.

When I wasn't ready to make the plunge into the clipless world, I grabbed a pair of these bad boys and am stoked that I did. I used to ride in my hiking shoes ((what a dummy)). These things have some major grip to them. I am a consistant 7.5 in womens, the size 6 in these were a great fit! If you need a great pair of sticky mountain bike shoes, grab yourself a pair of these!

Love them!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Great shoe! Nice and sticky - feet don't slip on my pedals at all. Same thing as another viewer said about the downside to that being that you'll have to pick your foot up off the pedal completely in order to reposition. But, if you've got your foot placement right then you're good! I have a women's size 8 foot and a 6.5 fit perfect. I also have narrow feet with high arches and I found these shoes to be comfortable and snug (not tight) which is really nice. The stitching around the toe is nice - I'm not worried about the rubber separating at the toe or on the sides because of it which is something that has happened with other pairs of shoes that don't have that stitching.

Better than the Competition

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My last job was a bike shop. I used to crack up because the manager told me, "If I ever catch you not clipping in, I will never ride with you again." I insisted he should try these shoes. He couldn't believe they were any good. I used to rock climb extensively (I was a rock climbing hippie for a while that lived in a car) and by far Five Ten sticky rubber was my favorite gripping rubber. Finally, I was vindicated. Customer after customer came in wearing these shoes. "What do you think?" I'd ask. They always loved them. My favorite combination for a fun day are Straitline pedals and these shoes. So. Much. Fun. You can still retain enough grip on the upstroke to feel like you are pulling up. I am one of those weirdos that firmly believes you should use flats before clipping in to get solid in your technique before moving on to clip-in pedals. Currently, I'm training for cross country races, so I'm mostly clipped in, but on days where I want to work on technique I switch to flats and wear these shoes. Love them. Six Six One makes a similar-styled shoe but the rubber is hard and not nearly grippy enough. Can't say enough about this brand. If you are dedicated to being as fast as possible in a cross country situation, stick to clipping in. But if you're out for a good time, give these a go.

yes, these work

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I like these shoes for biking. Great sticky soles on the pedals. I liked them for general use as well until they got really muddy from biking and now i use them only for that. Really comfy to wear and durability seems good after one season on the bike.

If you're like me and have been convincing yourself for a while that trail runners work well enough for biking, and you're also not into the idea of being clipped in to your pedals (like me), invest in some sticky rubber shoes already! These are definitely worth it. Just tried em out for the first time and they were super grippy - my feet didn't move around on the pedals at all (I'm used to my feet squirreling around a lot, so the difference was basically night and day) and I felt really connected to the bike. The soles are really stiff and make pedaling more efficient. I was concerned about these being hotter than the trail runners I normally wear since I climb quite a bit on rides, but their mesh-y upper makes them super breathable. Also really comfy right out of the gate! Super stoked on these A++

Excellent MTB shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I read a lot of good things about these shoes and they've been on sale lately(mine were $75 but I've seen as low as $50) so I bought a pair as well as Shimano Saint pedals. I've been using these for about 4 months for riding and walking around and besides getting a little stained from mud they are holding up well. Most "skate" style shoes don't have anything besides glue holding the sole onto the upper but, like a pair of boots, these are stitched as well as glued onto the upper. This means you don't have to worry about them falling apart where the ball of your foot flexes. If you don't want to ride clipless and you're looking for a good pedal/shoe setup I cannot recommend the Freerider and Saint combo highly enough. My feet DO NOT slip. The downside is, where you plant your foot is where your foot will stay until you literally lift it off the pedal to reposition. I ride a hardtail on trails with root and rock lines like giant washboards and my feet have never slipped. These also work very well for hike-a-bike situations although they have low ankles so if you kick up soil/gravel expect it to get inside your shoe. If you're looking for a great workhorse pair of MTB shoes, these are them. Wait until they go on sale again and get yourself a pair.

Responded on

I have to agreed w/ Olivia's review! They are a workhorse of a shoe, super durable and very sticky. And your foot stays put!

I am a women's 9.5 in most street shoes, 10 is running shoes and needed the 8.5 here, 8 was a bit short. The last is narrower and the shoes are comfy.

Soft Soles

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This is advertised as a grippy, mountain bike shoe for flat pedals. It is definitely grippy. Unfortunately, it has a very soft sole. I could feel the pins in my flat pedals after about an hour of mountain biking. I did three rides with these shoes using two different sets of flat pedals. I even tried adding inserts to the shoes to see if that would help. I always starting feeling the pedals through the soles within an hour. I have returned them as they're just uncomfortable on the trail.

A lot of the eyelets don't have any sort of reinforcement, so I ripped one out on my third or fourth ride when I was just tying my shoes, which was a bummer. Other than that, they're fine.

Unanswered Question

Are these stiffer than Spitfires? I love...

Are these stiffer than Spitfires? I love Spitfires but they are too soft for efficient pedaling. I've tried the Freerider VXi - nice stiffness - but I don't like the flat sole design.

Awesome Shoe!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are amazing I'm very happy with these shoes they are just overall sweet shoes for riding and have great feel on the pedals also they stick like super glue you really have to twist your foot for it to slip

Stealthy grip

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I recently gave these shoes as a gift and I have feedback to share. The shoes have incredible grip due to the awesome rubber that is used on the soles. The mid sole is stiff enough to provide adequate support on longer rides but is not overly stiff which means the shoes are still comfortable when you are hitting the town. These shoes do run true to size and offer a little wider toe box. If you have a really skinny foot this shoe may not be for you. The support is great and the shoes are very comfortable. Great shoe for around town or on the bike.

Hike, slackline, bike. Solid.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Seriously Sweet. I took these rock scrambling and there was basically nothing I couldn't ascend or descend, up to 5.0 class, as you'll see the photo with the hiker below me. I'm not sure which class that is, but it felt 5th class and I went straight up it, fast. My buddy below me in the photo did not make it up that bit, due to his shoes alone, as he is definitely a stronger hiker that I am. These upped my scrambling game ten fold. I put them on a slackline and I felt more stable than barefoot. There is just no slipping with these. And of course, they are solid on a bike pedal. I took them on that steep hike, straight out of the box and there was no wear-in time. They have good cushion without adding much height. I'm a women's size 8.5 or 9. I got the size 7 and its great. It doesn't feel big in the toe box at all. Seriously stoked on these multi-purpose shoes.

Hike, slackline, bike. Solid.
