Darian Westrickwrote a review of Five Ten Freerider Pro Cycling Shoe - Men's on December 7, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Five Ten has many flat pedal shoe options, but this one in my mind is the best. The Stealth rubber sole grips the pedals a perfect amount. The soles are not as sticky as the Freerider Contacts, which I actually prefer as I am able to micro adjust my foot if my placement is not quite right. I also prefer the stiffness of this model and outside material vs the traditional Freerider model, as the sole is stiffer and the upper is not canvas giving it more support, easier to clean, and slightly water resistant. I've put over 100 days in these shoes so far and while there is some slight separation happening between the edge of the shoe and the sole, the sole has held up to harsh pedals spikes and long hike a bikes. I would highly recommend especially if you are switching from clipless and prefer a stiffer shoe.
