Great feel, protection and style

Familiarity:

Fit:
True to size

Got these before a trip to Utah and put in two rides a day on them in SW Utah and since then many rides in SoCal. I had previously ridden a pair of five ten shoes that had a great sole but were not very stiff and had a breathable upper toe box that gave zero protection against rock impacts. These freeriders pros solve both of those needs. Stiff enough for long trail climbs with copious pedaling but still good feel on the pedals when dropping the heels to charge through the chunder or work the bike in technical situations. The upper has enough material to take the edge off rock strikes so you don't feel like your foot just got stomped. The blue looked good to in my opinion with my mostly blue and grey riding gear. Will add that the laces are secure and everything about these shoes seems quality which it should at this price point. Bonus - they clean up real nice. After a few months I tossed them in the wash with some towels and dried them outside in the sun - ca!e out looking (and smelling) like new! I have done 40 mile rides with over 5,000 vertical and plenty of black diamond downhill in these so they get my stamp of approval. I have been riding them on VP's Harrier pedals.

I bought these for winter riding as I wanted to find a way to keep my feet warmer than with clipped-in pedals. Platform pedals allow you to move your feet more and just easier to keep good circulation or add some hand warmers inside your shoes. I ordered an 11.5 and it fit accurately. I do have some 5-10 Kestrel clipless shoes and they are 11s, so I guess you could say these run a little shorter and the size chart reflects this. My main critique of this shoe is they could use some softer/pliable materials in the upper that would wrap around the forefoot better. The toe box is a bit wide (and though a D, my foot tends to like wide shoes) and I would appreciate a tad more feeling/feedback and not such a 'dead' feeling. I guess the good thing is I could wear a thicker sock if I wanted to. But if someone had narrower feet I think they might find these a bit vague/loose. No one is going to complain about the traction. As far as stiffness, they seem about right to me. They are a lot less stiff than my kestrels. I'd say they hit the sweet spot in terms of pedal stiffness while still being walkable. Note the picture Freerider Pro on left, Kestrel on right. After one ride I gave them away. I just couldn't feel my foot position, the shoes just mute the feel too much for me. I didn't like the kestrels either. Think I'm going to try the shimano gr7 as I've had good luck with their shoes. Five tens were not made for me.

I use these together with the Race Face Chester Pedal. Currently my pedals are missing a few pins, yet these shoes deliver such superior grip that it feels like I am riding clipless pedals. I have not had a pedal slip yet, which makes my shins and heels quite happy. The reinforced toe box is absolutely amazing. The water resistance makes this shoes absolutely perfect for the wetter weather.

I have always worn sneakers when cycling. However when I increased my daily cycling from 7 miles to 14 miles, my feet began to bother me. I read about cycling shoes that clip onto the pedals. Reviewers commented that they fell a few times while getting used to these. I instead purchased these "freerider" shoes. I wear a size 43 echo but I found that a size 43 1/2 Five Ten Freerider fit me perfectly. The shoes are very comfortable, none of that new shoe blistering. The soles are very firm so that the pressure on your foot from the pedals is evenly distributed. No more foot pain. I cycle in Florida so I need a cool shoe. These are very well ventilated. They are not, however, water resistant. When I got caught in the rain, I just removed the insoles and undid the laces to dry and they were as good as new in a couple of days. The shoes are attractive and fine to walk in if necessary. The rubbery soles do not slip on the pedals. Wonderful biking shoes! I would highly recommend them.

Hi- I’ve tried this shoe in both 12 and 12.5. I typically wear a 12.5 running shoe. I put “runs small” as I seem to being running into an issue with the toe box. After several rides I keep experiencing sore and numb toes on the outside of my feet? Is this a size issue or perhaps the toe box being too narrow? Any suggestions for finding a shoe with a more comfortable toe box for flat pedals? I could not wait to get my 12.5’s off my feet after my latest ride.

These shoes together with flat pedals actually come close to clipless they are so grippy. I bought them for a trip and spent 3-4 hours a day for 5 days in them. They protect the feet great and do okay on the dirt when pushing. Very comfortable to just wear around after too. Great looking, too. The best thing though is that they come in a 12.5 and are very true to size.

These shoes have the best rubber in the business. Paired with a set of flat pedals with pins, they stay stuck in place when you need them to but release when you want them to. The reason I went for the Freerider Pro, verus the Freerider, is the fact that they have added a layer of poron foam to the toe box so you don't break a toe when you kick a rock at high-speed. They are comfortable and stylish to boot. There is really nothing I don't like about these shoes.

The hard toe box on this shoe saved my toes from breaking yesterday when I rammed my foot hard into a rock when I went too wide on a turn going downhill. Wouldn't trust anything else now. The sole is very grippy thanks to their Stealth rubber which I fully trust in their climbing shoes and approach shoes as well.

Best Bike Shoes Out There

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I wrote the following review for Outdoor Prolink: A good mountain bike shoe can make the difference between an amazing day of riding and a frustrating day of slips and blisters. I recently put the 5.10 Freerider Pro to the test while using it nearly every day for a few months on the trails surrounding Boulder Colorado. I tested the Freerider Pro primarily on the mountain bike trails near Boulder Colorado, but I was able to get a weekend in at the amazing IMBA trails at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming. I have the amazing privilege of mountain biking as part of my job, so every day while at work I would change out of my regular hiking boots and lace up my 5.10 Freerider Pros. I would then head out on a mountain bike patrol of one of the local trails. Some rides were 15 miles of sunshine and dry trail conditions and some rides were 7 miles of mud and puddles. Over the course of the last two months I put almost 500 miles on my Freeriders. I’ve smashed my toes on rocks and roots, hiked my bike more times than I’d like to admit, and ridden these shoes in a variety of weather and trail conditions. Right out of the box the 5.10 Freerider Pros felt amazing on my feet. This initial feeling only improved with time. They’re as comfortable as just about any shoe I own. Not only are they comfortable, I think these shoes look great! Most outdoor gear is trending in the direction of having very bright color options, but not these 5.10 shoes. For someone who prefers earthen tones to the usual neon outdoor clothing, the more muted colors on the 5.10 Freerider Pros made me feel right at home. The Freerider Pro features a weather-resistant synthetic upper and an impact-resistant toe box. The impact-resistant toe box saved my toes on multiple run-ins with roots and rocks. The weather-resistant and durable upper shoe shows few signs of wear after months of riding and kept my feet dry on all but the wettest days. In my opinion the 5.10 Stealth S1 outsole is the best all-mountain outsole on the market. I never had a doubt about whether my shoes would slip off the pedals. Not only do you feel secure when riding, but these shoes are great for hiking in too. I know you’re supposed to stay in the saddle, but sometimes you just have to push your bike! Despite my shower of praise for the 5.10 Freerider Pro, I do have a few areas the shoe could improve. First, the ventilation: these shoes are hot and don’t breathe very well. If your feet sweat a lot, you’ll need some thin socks to avoid wet feet. My feet rarely sweat, but wearing my usual wool socks I could feel them getting hot after shorter rides on warm days. Second, the laces on these shoes could improve. They aren’t very durable and they are hard to sufficiently tighten. Luckily laces are cheap and easy to replace! As an added bonus, you can feel good about buying 5.10 and Adidas products. Adidas is regularly listed in the top 10 among the 100 most sustainable companies in the world. In addition, Adidas partners with multiple global NGOs focused on reducing ocean and air pollution. All in all, the 5.10 Freerider Pros are my new go-to mountain biking shoes, and I’ll continue to use them for years to come. When they finally wear out, I’ll replace them with the exact same shoe. The 5.10 Freerider Pro is the closest thing on the market to a perfect mountain biking shoe. A few small tweaks and I’d call it perfected. Cheers to you, 5.10 design team!

I’ve been riding 5.10 for years. My last pair served me well for 3 seasons and felt sticky the whole time, but fresh rubber literally feels like glue. I forgot how sticky these are when new. I’ll never ride another brand as long as I’m on platforms.

Size 14, First ride just now, SO SO GOOD

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Coming off brooks tennis shoes and having never owned a mountain bike specific shoe. I researched the market and bought the black/red freerider pro in sz 14 two days ago. Just finished the first couple hour ride, and had to give a review. The rubber is SO sticky and the sole is so much stiffer than a tennis shoe. Using these paired with my Deity flats are absolutely amazing. Wonderful purchase, way more grip/confidence, way more pedal efficiency, they're comfortable, and they look awesome in person...feeling of very high quality and durable. If you're in doubt, jump on it! They run true to size. You won't regret it!!! Can't wait to put more miles on these :)
