Five Ten Freerider -

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.

Five Ten Freerider Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

If you were to base a shoe's rating on grip alone, the five ten freerider would be a 5/5. You just cannot beat stealth rubber. Rather than spending all your extra $$$ on fancy pedals, you can just wear these shoes instead, which turns just about any platform into a stable ride. Very solid ankle support, and foot protection. My criticisms; UGLY. Seriously, this is a bulky-ass shoe. It's not heavy by any stretch, just chunky and ugly. They are a little wide/large volume in the toebox. I have to put a pair of pillow insoles in mine to pad them out a bit, and they are still a little too big. Not length mind you, just overall size in the toebox. All said and done, if you're ready to to make the switch from some flimsy VANS (like I did) and want the best grip for your money, this is it. Now only if they'd make a good looking shoe too...

A while ago, I bought a pair of Teva Links for myself and have since been oogling over these FiveTen Freeriders. Well I just bought a pair for my wife as her first MTB shoes, and they are just as awesome as I expected. She reports that they are stiff, sticky, and responsive on downhills -- duh. We ride more XC/AM than DH, so climbing in them sometimes proves clunky and her feet get a bit tingly because of how stiff they are. However the performance after the climbing is well worth it.
Plus, they look sweet on or off the bike!
Based on her experience and other friends' reviews, I would gladly ride these instead of my Tevas. However, I'm sad they changed the Freerider model to the VXi... loved the more casual look of these. Oh well.

I was trying to get back into biking but my feet were always so sore. I really didn't like the idea of the clip pedals special pedals. But I really wanted something with a stiffer sole to take the strain off of my feet. I absolutely love these shoes. They are stiff enough to avoid hurting my feet but they stick to the pedals like glue so I don't feel like I'm losing any of my force, either on my mountain or road bikes. They've got enough support that I can wear them running errands and they are sturdy enough to take a beating but still look great. They are comfy and I love the way they look - I wouldn't ride my bike in anything else. Long live the Freerider!

Great Shoes

I had a pair of the 510 Basics over the summer and I climb in 510 Galileos... love them, so I wanted to try some new 510 shoes for the fall. The Freeriders are a bit more stylish in my opinion and have much more cushion. I mainly use them just for day to day wear, but I also casually skate in them sometimes. As always Stealth rubber is awesome. The worst part about these shoes so far is a small piece of thin layered rubber on the tip of the sole wore off after a few weeks. You don't notice it just by looking, and there is still plenty of protection. I am still really happy with my shoes.

I've always used clipless pedals, but now am getting more into free ride stuff so I switched to flats. I tried wearing Vans at first but my feet kept slipping off the pedals at inopportune times. The Five Ten Freeriders are amazing. I actually got a little freaked out by how grippy they were. I feel almost like I'm clipped in. Can't say how durable they are as I've only had mine two months, but they do well even when wet and muddy. I'm a women's size 7.5/8 so I ordered the men's size 6 and they fit perfectly. Not the most comfortable for casual wear (though they look cool!) because of the stiff sole, but excellent for biking.

The best mtb shoes ever

Right out of the box I knew I was going to love these shoes. They're well constructed (as to be expected from 5/10) and they look great, so nice I was reluctant to wear them on a muddy ride. The stealth sole tho its not stealthy (the loudest sneaker sole I have ever worn) grips my oddessy pedals almost like a pair of cb mallets. I honestly didnt think flat shoes could be so grippy. And comfortable to wear all day. I would recomemd these shoes to anyone. They're also nice for skateboarding ;)

One year later, and I'm still wearing (and loving) my 510s. When added to the Shimano DX platform pedal, I can honestly say that I don't miss my SPDs at all (except maybe on the steepest of hills). I feel I've become a better downhill rider because I know I can dab if I need to. They're a little bulky for the female form, but I like them better than the woman's specific 510s, which just look ridiculous on me.

I used to slip off my pedals dirt jumping, but not anymore. Only complaint is that I like to wear low socks and the tongue is so stiff that it digs into my skin. Issue can be resolved with socks that go above my ankle, but eh. Put a band-aid over the tongue for now.

This is an all around excellent shoe for bmx and and mountain biking as the stealth rubber soles grip to the pedals very well. They might feel a little stiff when new, but break in nicely and are extremely durable. They are similar to the 510 basic, if not identical with different color schemes.

Sticky shoe lil soft in the foot bed but I think I like that can't believe sometimes how much they stick to the pedals pretty crazy, they get a lil hot might need a lil more venting but otherwise nice.

Negative Reviews:

I have a pair of freeriders from a few seasons back. They've finally beatup enough that it's time to replace them. I bought a new pair and immediately noticed that the new shoe is lower quality than the older pair. The materials & construction is just not as good as before. The older pair has better cushioning, better quality uppers & insoles, better stitching. The only thing that has remained the same is the stealth sole & styling. As far as I'm concerned it's not nearly the same quality that I've come to expect from 5 Ten. It's still a good mtb shoe, but not as good as it used to be. I'd rather they raise the price a bit than sacrifice quality.
