Item # FVT2008

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

Great look, great feel

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

I love FiveTen mountain bike shoes. They look like a skate shoe but come wit the burliness & support you need when youre bangin around in the woods. The rubber is sticky as tar and that's a good thing. This is my second pair and judging from the last pair, which are still functional, these will be bulletproof too. FiveTen mountain bike shoes are top quality!

Excellent Shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 13

I use these shoes in combination with Race Face Chester flat pedals and they work great. My feet literally stick to the pedals. Very comfortable, right amount of stiffness in the sole. If they ever get worn out, I will buy them again.

best shoes...period!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i rode clips for years but decided to go the flat pedal route and once I tried these I will never go back. I ride these with Deity pedals and it is just like being clipped in except for when you need to get away from your bike. So comfy I wear them everyday to work.

Excellent Casual Shoe

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10 (Euro 43)

I was having a terrible time finding a quality shoe to wear around town, to casual events and on light hikes after Patagonia stopped making shoes and decided to give these a try. With wide feet and a heavy stride, most shoes are either too narrow, not durable enough, or don't offer enough support. Having worn the Five Ten Impacts mountain biking over the last 3 years, I was already familiar with Five Ten's fit and quality so decided to give these a try. While I've only had them for 2 weeks, I took them on a trip to Europe and put over 70 miles on them walking around London and Paris in all kinds of weather for 8-10 hours a day and they were great! Good traction, comfortable and not too hot. The only issue I had was I wore the insole out part way through so had to buy some new ones--I'd recommend putting an aftermarket insole in sooner rather than later. Great shoes overall!

These were heavily recommended to me and I'm pretty happy after upgrading from some pretty worn adidas skate shoes. Being mainly a roadie I was skeptical about non-clipless bike shoes, but it really does makes a difference how much grip these have and how more comfortable they ride.

My go-to shoe

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

I've been wearing these as both a casual shoe and as a riding shoe and they are just plain awesome. When it comes to riding, the stealth rubber grips pedals super well. You can't beat Five Tens for grip on platform pedals. I especially like the Freeriders because they generally don't have the issue of the sole peeling away that is characteristic of other Five Tens. This is probably because the Freerider sole is stitched and glued on, not just glued.

I use these for casual use too because they regulate temperature well and thus are suitable for year round use. They are super durable too. I got the black color with the gold logo on the tongue and they look good with everything. These shoes are true to size on length with a roomy footbed.

Cool Shoes, Man

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

These are the perfect shoe for anybody looking to not be clipped into their peddles. They are super stiff and the rubber sticks to the peddle like Velcro on...well the other part of Velcro without the fear of being locked in on those times when you gotta maneuver a bit. I mean, if I keep riding with these bad boys, I'll be sending Rampage by next October.

Stealth rubber never fails

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

There's not much more to say about any pair of Five Ten shoes than anyone else has covered. They're fantastic, they're durable, and the Stealth rubber is some maniacal cross between super glue and flubber. The 'pattern' on the bottom of the shoe seems to allow you to adjust your foot with a minor twist compared to Five Tens that just have a solid flat bottom. This is a welcome thing, however, since removing your foot completely to re-situate isn't always an option.

They seem to run true-to-size if you base it off of your Euro size, but plan to drop a half size if you're going to base it solely off of your US size.

Planted Feel on Pedals

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

After riding in skate shoes, I decided to go for the FiveTen Freeriders. Huge difference. Stiffer soles definitely makes it easier pedaling/standing. I read all about how sticky these things are on the pedals and there is no exaggeration. It caught me off guard the first time when I tried to adjust.

Definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a solid shoe for downhill/all round mountain biking.

Super Sticky

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

I love these shoes for riding and casual use. The soles are super sticky but not too stiff. Fairly light weight and lots of colors to choose from. What's not to like?

Bought these for use with some HT Components flat pedals, and they stick like glue. Comfortable for long climbs and lift accessed descents alike. If you are riding with regular tennis shoes, give these a try and you will never go back. Consider sizing down a half size.

Solid Shoe For the Price

If you are looking for a do everything shoe at a reasonable price give theses a shot! The Freeriders have killer grip when paired with a nice pair of flat pedals. They are wide and flat on the bottoms giving you a great feeling on the pedals and rock solid security when hitting drops, table tops, rock gardens and technical uphill climbs. If you want to hear more about my opinion on these shoes feel free to reach out to me directly. Have a great time riding!

Amazing grip

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

Bought these to go with my Shimano Saint spike pedals. These work perfect. Complete grip to the pedals. Previously riding clipless, I switched to platforms and bought these shoes to go along with. I was worried about losing torque on the up pedal, but these do provide support. Could not be happier.

I ended up having to order these right from FiveTen because backcountry didn't carry my size in the color I wanted... but I'm really happy with them. They look good and have plenty of room so my feet are never uncomfortable.

Fits wide feet! Fits Wide Feet

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

I have been searching high and low to find shoes that are even close to wide fitting. I need to ride in these, but so far wearing them around the house they actually fit my 4e feet. Stoked to get them out on the trail.


They ride awesome. Seriously wish I would of gone to platform pedals and shoes a long time ago.

***my ridding =mostly Fire Road Climbs, Rocky steep descents. Straight up straight down.

Form and function

The rubber on these is interesting. It's the stealth rubber. It grips flat pedals like nobody's business. They seem to be best with metal spike flats. The rubber seems to have a slight memory so it squishes around the pegs. As others have mentioned, mud? No problem. I had to walk a lot in the mud my last ride. Hopped on the bike and I'll be damned if they didn't just hook right up, every time! Didn't even need to clear the bottom of the shoes. They're amazing! Wearing them off the bike is fine. I have noticed the stealth rubber molds to little rocks and debris and they can get stuck to it for a couple steps. It's so good at its intended purpose, I just think of it as an unavoidable thing, not knocking any points off for that. Has a perfect sole stiffness for a shoe that can be worn casually, and feel nice and solid cranking on the pedals. The hellcats I tried and returned, they were too stiff, for example. These have a great balance. Great styling, light, functional... Form AND function, can't ask for more! Fits true to size.

These shoes are tried and true classics! At one point, I had 6 different pairs. Not only are they functional on a bike, but they are super comfortable to wear as casual shoes too. Five Ten are most recognized with the DH and free ride scene due to the insane amount of grip that the sticky rubber has. Superior grip on any pedals - whether DH/free ride oriented flats, or even low end plastic pedals, these shoes keep your feet to the pedal. They are very durable as well, I think I still have a pair in the closet even, that would be close to 8 years old that are still in great shape, granted they haven't been worn in the last 5 years... I guess anything can last forever if you never use it. If you are looking for a great pair of shoes and are an old school no clips for me person, you definitely cannot go wrong with these shoes. They are almost like riding clips though with the amount of stickiness they will provide.

I am like a perfect product sample person. I wear a medium in just about everything and a size 9 shoe
