5.10 Freerider
Rating:
The Good
Comfy, grippy, looks good, good price
The Bad
Retains water and take a while to dry
Overall Review:

A great shoe at a great price. That performs on the bike but can be worn as a casual shoe off it.

Great Shoe, Breathable

traction, breathability, fit
The Bad
durability, fit
Overall Review:

The traction on these things is incredible, and your feet don't get too sweaty either. They are snug, and fit really well, but the toe box seems small for the size, and the durability was a bit less than hoped, but they faced a season of hard riding in rough conditions.

Super sticky standard for your flat pedals
Rating:
The Good
Great price, super sticky and super comfy.
The Bad
Large toe box and super long laces.
Overall Review:

After many years of riding clipless, I have been riding flat pedals again. About six months of dabbling later, I decided to upgrade my shoes to something newer. The Five Ten Freerider is the industry standard for the function so I picked up a pair for $80 direct from the Adidas website. The design and construction looks really good. My feet are narrow so my only complaint is the toe box seems quite large. The shoes are only three rides old at this time so that fit may change as they further break in. This extra space could also be a good thing if I want to wear thicker socks. One weird details is the extra long shoe laces. Not sure if I am missing some special way to tie them or if I just need to cut them shorter, but they are way-y-y-y long. As expected the stealth rubber sticks like a spoonful of honey has been added to each sole. I have regular height pins and they do not seem to be causing that eventual damage to the soles yet either. I went with standard Freerider model because of the ventilation and happy with that aspect. I have seen complaints about the longevity of the design since Adidas took over so we will see how well they wear. Really good riding experience so far (sticky and stable) and I am learning new ways to ride (without pulling upon the pedals). If Sam Hill can have that much fun riding up and down on flats, I can surely have half as much fun riding much, much slower on flats! So far, so good.

Five ten freerider shoes
Rating:
The Good
Comfortable and stylish enough to wear as everyday shoes, sweet color options, durable, stiff yet comfortable, Super grippy sole
The Bad
A bit warm on hotter days, can be a bit too stiff for longer hike a bikes
Overall Review:

I recently became an IMBA certified bike instructor, and for the course you had to ride flat pedals. Picked up a pair of freeriders, and have never looked back. These shoes offer a semi stiff sole which aids in pedal feel and grip, but aren't so stiff that walking around is awkward and uncomfortable. Although I have noticed that for longer hikes they can be a touch stiff. I have the freeriders with the standard black sole, and they offer legendary grip, but I can still shift my foot without too much issue. It did take a bit of getting used to as I do have to lift my foot a bit at times if I am cemented to the pedal.

These shoes are my go to when practicing new skills with flat pedals, as well as a durable and comfortable shoe I wear almost everyday. I went through a set of vans every couple of months, but thus far these have held up great and should last significantly longer. I was a bit leary of the suede outers, but threw some waterproofing spray on them and haven’t had issues. Overall a great option for those that want a shoe that can handle DH trails to trail riding to hitting the town. Don’t let the price scare you off from having a solid pair of shoes that if taken care of should last a good while.

The only MTB shoe I will buy from now on!

The Bad
Nothing that I noticed
Overall Review:

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 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 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

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 loves his so we got that going for us too.

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

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.

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.

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

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 everyday
these shoes top any nike 6.0 shoe. get them now!

Is light and the sole is very grippy at the beginning, it has protected me from direct hits at the toes, you can walk and push if needed and they look good.
The Bad
after a year of use, the outer sole hast start to come off and has become a bit stiff (they are confortable and you can still walk, but they dont grip as before)
Overall Review:
All in all, I would buy them again, love the style (going for the white ones in my next pair)

Durable, light, not stiff enough
Rating:
The Good
These shoes have been a great substitution for nike skate shoes as my every day shoe. Stylish, long lasting sole, and as always the stealth rubber is a huge win. They were also used for the odd dirt jump session.
The Bad
Tendency to heat up quickly in the sun. Bit to flexible for my liking (I'm used to riding in Carvers)
Overall Review:
Very good shoe, perfect for someone who likes a shoe with a bit more flex, or for anyone looking for a casual shoe.

Great shoe for everyone

The Good
Grips well, fairly durable, and much more protection that regular trainers
The Bad
A bit bulky, seams get split and rubber wears down. Maybe a little expensive
Overall Review:
These take a year of regular abuse and then start to die, but the shoe is so good that it is worth it
