The Good:

Everything

The Bad:

Nothing that I noticed

Overall Review:

The 5.10freeridershoe is my second 5.10 shoe that I bought. The first one was the sam hill high top used for DH and now that I ride trail mostly, I needed a new shoe that was lighter and more breathable but still had the grip I came to love with my DH shoes. It was great that I didn't even have to shop around much for different shoes. I know the quality that is brought to the table with 5.10 and that my money will be well spent on them, no matter what the initial cost is. I looked at the shimano and the specialized shoes too but for the price, I didn't want to take a risk knowing that there was a solid winner right there for the Read More »

The 5.10freerider shoe is my second 5.10 shoe that I bought. The first one was the sam hill high top used for DH and now that I ride trail mostly, I needed a new shoe that was lighter and more breathable but still had the grip I came to love with my DH shoes. It was great that I didn't even have to shop around much for different shoes.

I looked at the shimano and the specialized shoes too but for the price, I didn't want to take a risk knowing that there was a solid winner right there for the taking. 

The fit is comfy and stiff at the same time so it gives you better grip on the pedals. The flat pedal sole is still in great shape and hasn't worn that much at all in the 2 years that I have owned them. If anything, it just became a bit easier to move my foot around on the pedals while riding, which is not a bad thing. The ONLY complaint I have is that the laces were wayy to long when I first got them, even tying them in a triple knot didn't shorten them up enough.  Being the cheapskate that I am, I cut the laces and tied them back together again and put them back in my shoe instead of getting new ones and they have worked perfectly ever since. These aren't waterproof but I'm sure you can spray them with some of the water replant and get them pretty close to a waterproof shoe. Buy these shoes and don't look back!

Best MTB Shoe Hands Down

Rating:
The Good:

comfortable out on the town, comfortable out on the trails, comfortable on the lift, did I mention they were comfortable, many many color options, grip is incredible (as good as five ten impacts)

The Bad:

they are a bit pricey, not as stiff as impacts for downhill

Overall Review:

I wanted a shoe that I could wear while out trail riding because I was tired of using my stiff impacts for downhill and trail riding. I started a paper route and saved up my pennies, purchased these bad boys online, not sure where, prob from Amazon or something because they have good return policy. They arrived and viola I am wearing comfortable new shoes. I figured they would be good for mtb but turns out they are good for anything, ya know, go mtb w/ your mates for the day, change out of something less stinky, head to the pub for a pint and a bite to eat type of shoe. My friend white Chris got a pair on my recommendation and he Read More »

Great shoe with outstanding grip

Rating:
The Good:

Great every-day comfort, Mind-blowing grip, True to size

The Bad:

Not as much breathability as I would like for the warmer summer rides

Overall Review:

Picked up my Five Ten Freeriders after riding the more intense Five Ten Sam Hill shoes. I loved the grip of the Sam Hills but hated, let me bold it, hatedhow stiff they were, while riding, I couldn't feel where my feet were on the pedals which overall effected my confidence when riding. If only Five Ten made a shoe that had the same phenomenal grip but with a much less stiff sole. They did, it's called the Freerider.

The things I loved about the Freerider is that it felt like a typical skate show that we were raise on but with a little more stability for those nasty cases we go through for second guessing our speed. Throw in some Read More »

The things I loved about the Freerider is that it felt like a typical skate show that we were raise on but with a little more stability for those nasty cases we go through for second guessing our speed. Throw in some sticky rubber and it can't get any better, performance and feel that is. They are also very true to size which is nice when ordering online. I wear a size 12 in vans and the size 12 in the Freeriders is perfect.

The only complaint I have is that they do get a little hot in the summer months. They aren't the best at breathability. That being the case, I feel like the Freerider Contact shoe might be cooler but is slightly more money.

Bottom Line:

Tired of slipping pedals and want a change? The Five Ten Freeriders are one of the best shoes out there. Despite my next pair of riding shoes being the Freerider Contacts, I would will recommend this shoe to anyone.

Sticky and tough

Rating:
The Good:

I never had any issues with my feet coming off my flat pedals but after hear great reviews about 5.10 I thought I would give these a try, and after use of them for one season I think it would be hard to go back to anything else besides the 5.10 sticky rubber. There are times where they feel almost too sticky (its like those first times of riding clipped in and you forget to unclip), they stick to the pedals so well and do so in all conditions, wet, snow, mud..etc. When I say too sticky I just mean that sometimes they can be tricky to reposition them when paired with pedals with aggressive pins but nothing that can be handled. I found also if you are hiking with your bike up any rock faces the shoes grip the rock like glue, they are awesome for hike-a-bike type days. Another bonus is when you need to clean these shoes the materials sheds the mud very well. In terms of style the shoes look really nice and can be worn off the bike as well without looking like a goof something that hard to do with the 5.10 impacts.

The Bad:

The only negatives a found is that the shoes aren’t as comfy as other skate shoes such as Nikes, so if you are just wearing them all day on the street you may find that they can get a bit uncomfortable. The other issue is that due to the tough material they get a bit hot on really hot days but this is nothing that can’t be dealt with. Overall for riding these issues don’t really cause any concern.

Overall Review:

I’d consider these a game changer in terms of items you can buy for biking, once you wear a pair of 5.10 shoes it would be very hard to go back to anything else.

Just like the old impacts

Rating:
The Good:

These shoes are great. They share a similar feel to the original retail impacts. There is a better connection between the rider and the pedal than the current model of impact, while still maintaining great grip and durability.

The Bad:

Only bad side is that they take on more water than the current impact, they they offer no where near as much toe protection.

Overall Review:

Great shoe, and easily should be attributed as the true successor to the original (and the best) impact.

Meh, prefer Impacts

Rating:
The Good:

Lightweight, great styling, 510 rubber is great as always

The Bad:

Lightweight, too flexy for my taste, not as much protection in the toe box as the Impacts, feel thin through the pedals compared to Impacts

Overall Review:

I bought these after running a couple pairs of Impacts over 5 years or so. I couldn't get into the thin feeling of these shoes and have relegated them to around town kicks and the odd urban ride. Can't recommend for DH or even trail riding due to the flex. Your mileage may vary.

Best Skate Style Bike Shoe

Rating:
The Good:

Amazing grip- nothing beats 5.10 stealth rubber for traction. Lighter and more breathable than the 5.10 Impact or Karver.

The Bad:

Durability. The sole delaminates too soon. The new model comes with a new sole construction.

Overall Review:

Five Ten makes the best flat pedal shoe on the market. The Freerider is perfect for the guy who wants a casual, more breathable, less bulky, less stiff shoe than the 5.10 Impact.

Best Mountainbike Shoes!

Rating:
The Good:

These shoes have an incredible amount of grip on flat pedals.

The Bad:

The rubber around the main sole comes open easily and stones start to get stuck inside. Not much grip walking in mud.

Overall Review:

These shoes are perfect for mountainbiking! If they ever broke I would get the impact or Sam Hill shoes next.

best shoe ive ever owned

Rating:
The Good:

grippy as hell, look good, comfortable

The Bad:

uh, the cali license plate on the back peels and the sole where stitching is supposed to be, peels off of the shoe, but it's no biggie the grip starts to wear, but it's still really grippy and they're pretty expensive for shoes. but you get what you pay for

Overall Review:

this shoe is amazing, it's grippy, comfy, looks good to wear around town, I wear mine everydaythese shoes top any nike 6.0 shoe. get them now!
