Lace it up.

Live out your enduro dreams and power down the course in the Five Ten Men's Kestrel Lace-Up Shoes. The Lace-Ups trade out the carbon-infused shank of their top-end sibling for a nylon shank that provides a bit more give for ease of walkability while still providing efficient power transfer.

The shank is housed in an outsole comprising two different compounds. The first, Stealth C4, is hard enough for rock climbing. In fact, it was developed for rock climbing, but Five Ten imports it to the cycling world to make sure there's no watt-wasting outsole squish where rubber meets pedal. The other compound is softer and tackier. It dissipates impact while navigating the lumpy ups and downs of enduro and provides grip while scrambling across un-rideable talus slopes and rock walls.

The Kestrels Lace Ups are finished with a synthetic toe box mated to a mesh upper, with the former providing structure and protection while the latter keeps the heat down when the trail and temperature both go up. Laces span the top of the foot to lock in a customized fit, with a hook-and-loop strap for extra security and taming of excess lace length.

  • A durable and comfortable off-road shoe
  • Soft, tacky outsole for confident pedal grip
  • Nylon shank balances stiffness and walkability
  • Synthetic toe box provides extra protection
  • Lace closure with hook-and-loop strap for a customized fit

Do these come with the cleat or is that bought separately? Thanks

Tha best

Had a pair of Shimano’s for three seasons that got the job done and lasted three seasons, but the comfort of these 5-10 shoes is unmatched. They fit more like an aggressive skate shoe, the shank gives you the support and power needed to crank uphill without losing too much energy in shoe flex. This is the perfect shoe for the everday rider.

clippy shoe.

This shoe is great. All my friends are jealous. I was tempted to cut the velcro strap off when I got them, because I think it looks kinda funky, But I've ended up using them more than I thought,so they'll stay on.

Way larger than any other shoe I've ever

Ordered a 10 and had to pay to send it back and get a 9.5. Have never worn anything other than a 10.5 since my teens. Order it through zappos so you don't have to pay return shipping fees. The shoe itself once you get the right size is the most comfortable biking shoe I have ever worn.

Thanks for the review Adam! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

Great Shoes

I really like these shoes. They are great for the local trail riding.

Comfort and power

  • Size Bought: 10

A great shoe with comfort and power built in one. Fits true to size, comfortable, good power transfer for each pedal. I have this set up with my Crank Brothers pedals and had to add the spacer to make it easier to clip into my pedals, but with that they are great.

Awesome Bike Shoe

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 14

They may not be the most fashionable shoe around, but they do a lot better blending in than most other road / mtb specific shoes do. I use them for mountain biking and on my commuter. They are fairly comfy to walk in, but are stiff enough for noticeable improvement in power transfer over regular shoes.

So Good, Seriously

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I freaking love these shoes. Everything I didn't adore from the Kestrel Boa Five Ten came back with the Kestrel Lace and blew it out of the water. First and foremost, the Kestrel Boa is a stiff shoe, not only in the shank, but also in the upper materials. The Lace version offers a bit more flexibility in the shank making it more comfortable to walk in or long days in the saddle where some give is appreciated. In addition to the more flexible shank, the upper is more forgiving providing better next to foot comfort. I also credit the laces to providing a bit more comfort across the tongue, as opposed to the Boa steel wire. Weight is not super light, but manageable. Stealth sole provides outstanding grip when finding your pedals, or while mid hike-a-bike.

The only issue I've had with the Kestrel Lace's was that I had an issue with the cleat plate threads cracking. Admittedly, I did not use grease on the threads. Luckily there is a slit in the shoe under the insole to easily replace the cleat plate. While I had other shoes to ride while I was waiting on new cleat plates, I was really wishing I could lace up the Kestrels. Word to the wise, use grease when installing your cleats and don't hamfist them.

So Good, Seriously

Just what the Dr. ordered

I am 46 year old aggressive trail rider - ride 5.5-6" trail bikes/All Mountain bikes. Traditionally I have used more cross country oriented shoes and wanted to try something a bit different.

I have about 10 rides on these shoes s in the past 3 weeks and really like them. The lace/strap combination is great, comfortable, stiff enough sole for power transfer, and they look great. They aren't for racing but perfect for anything else. I don't want to use my other shoes anymore.

I like them so much I bought a second pair for myself and a pair for my 17 year old son.
