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.

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.

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.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

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

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.

I Wish They Were Mine!

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

A while ago, I bought a pair of Teva Links for myself and have since been oogling over these FiveTen Freeriders. Well I just bought a pair for my wife as her first MTB shoes, and they are just as awesome as I expected. She reports that they are stiff, sticky, and responsive on downhills -- duh. We ride more XC/AM than DH, so climbing in them sometimes proves clunky and her feet get a bit tingly because of how stiff they are. However the performance after the climbing is well worth it.
Plus, they look sweet on or off the bike!
Based on her experience and other friends' reviews, I would gladly ride these instead of my Tevas. However, I'm sad they changed the Freerider model to the VXi... loved the more casual look of these. Oh well.

I asked ChainReatcionCycles about sizes and they gave me this chart http://www.shoesizechart.us/B/Five-Ten , then i went to your website and found size chart too, but I noticed that it is not the same sizes. Which chart is right? My foot length is 26.3 cm. which size will fit for me?

I have a pair of freeriders from a few seasons back. They've finally beatup enough that it's time to replace them. I bought a new pair and immediately noticed that the new shoe is lower quality than the older pair. The materials & construction is just not as good as before. The older pair has better cushioning, better quality uppers & insoles, better stitching. The only thing that has remained the same is the stealth sole & styling. As far as I'm concerned it's not nearly the same quality that I've come to expect from 5 Ten. It's still a good mtb shoe, but not as good as it used to be. I'd rather they raise the price a bit than sacrifice quality.

Stupid question, but how do you lace these...

Stupid question, but how do you lace these shoes? I haven't been able to ride clipless since my knee surgery and have been just getting by in a pair of Salomon quick pull lacing sytem running shoes (which tucks safely out of the way). How do people lace these up so they don't get caught on anything - I'm assuming you just don't tie them in a bow?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey there Lorp, there are no dumb questions : )
Myself and my buddies don't usually worry about the laces when DH riding. I've never caught mine on anything anyway...
If you were worried, you could definitely tuck them out of the way underneath the beefy tongue of this shoe.

This shoe also has removable insoles, which we didn't mention above. This is pretty sweet if you ever need to battle the hot summer foot funk!

Happy trails!

I laced mine with "yankz" the elastic laces sold here on bc. Makes a perfect pair...

great shoe

the five ten freerider shoes are great. no wonder why anyone who rides bikes seriously has a pair. if you think you ride bikes enough to need the proper shoes, get the freerider.
