Five Ten Hellcat -

Lace up your Five Ten Hellcat Shoes and clip in to your mountain bike knowing you'll have secure footing when traversing the mandatory hike-a-bike. While your riding buddies slip and tiptoe around the sketchy section in their hard-rubber soled, metal spiked, road-bike-based kicks, your Stealth-Rubber-equipped Hellcats grip the terrain like dedicated approach shoes.

The Hellcat Shoe has a Five Ten Stealth rubber sole. Stealth rubber gives you tons of grip so your feet stay firmly planted on the pedals. This soft rubber compound also provides grip when you're off the bike scrambling up a sketchy section, and is extremely durable. No other rubber out there is as sticky and lasts as long against the offenses of the gnarly traction pins on your pedals. If you plan to use the Hellcat Shoe with SPD pedals, you'll simply need to remove the cleat pocket cover and replace it with your cleat, clip in and go. The stiff-but-sensitive shank that provides a solid pedaling platform without taking away from pedal feel or the natural flex of the shoe. A Velcro ankle strap beefs up the already-beefy ankle support for a firm-but-natural fit.

The Hellcat's upper is burly, abrasion-resistant leather upper that holds up to season-after-season of ridiculous off-road abuse. We really like that the lace eyelets have metal grommets. This means they'll lace up more easily, and tensioning the shoe before a downhill run is quicker and more thorough down the forefoot. To top it all off, a velcro strap is used to secure the midfoot, and it keeps the laces under control and out of your chain.

The Five Ten Hellcat Shoe is Black and comes in half sizes from men's 6 through 12, with a full size jump to 13 and another to 14.

Five Ten Hellcat Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

i bought the hellcats because of the cost, and i'd been toying with the idea of some shoes in this styling versus what i've traditionally worn, straight up cycling shoes with design inherited from road riding.
welp i'm glad i got into these because the overall performance has been outstanding, even for a guy like me who spends most of my time climbing. i am an aggressive all mountain rider who rides an specialized enduro with a 170mm lyrik on the front.
the shoe feels like a "platform" against the pedal. versus previous incarnations of shoes, the contact feels vastly greater than before. this translates to a snappier feel in pedal power perception, both when grinding out a climb, and cranking hard after landing a jump. i use crank bros candy 2s, and with these shoes, i can feel the totality of the platform interfacing with the pedal. plain and simple? theses shoes make use of ALL the real estate available to push the pedal.
the recessed cleat is cool as well... there is no sense of riding "on" the cleat. again, it just adds to the complete contact of the bottom of the shoe with the pedal.
are they too big? too hot? too heavy? these were some of my initial worries, but the second ride i had with these was monarch crest outside salida colorado, which is a 40 mile romp through the colorado high country. the hellcats shined in every aspect. and, i think they look cool as heck!
my buddy got the maltese falcons because they weigh less. if you're concerned about weight, i say, why not spend more? but in my experience, the hellcat's weight did nothing to impede my ability on fast descents as well as power depleting technical climbs, and everything in between.
overall, just a super solid shoe with burly construction that instills some extra feeling of confidence... it's all that contact with the pedal!
and for the price... just awesome.

I'd buy a second pair for when these wear out. Very comfortable , took me a couple of days to find the sweet spot on lace tension where I can just pull the strap up and slip the shoes on and off without them being too loose or too tight. Great on the bike and easy to walk in even with cleats on. I wore them out to dinner & no one can tell I've got cleats on, just avoid linoleum floors.
As for size I wear a Merrell hiking shoe size 13 , Sidi 49 , saucony running shoe size 13 , Carnac 46.5 & the Five Ten size 13 fits me comfy with just enough room to spare so I could use an insole or thick socks if I want.
As for value you can't beat them , I have owned biking shoes that cost $ 550 or so and they are lighter and stiffer but my wife won't go out in public with me when I wear Sidi Drako's or Carnac Pulsar's . These shoe's can be worn to the store or even dinner with or without cleats and they blend right in, in fact my wife says they are cool & she is hyper critical .

I consider myself a novice MTB'er and bought these shoes because my vans just werent giving me enough protection. I read other reviews that were very positive on the grip these shoes provide and I agree 100%. Super grip to my platform pedals. I must admit I was a little leary of the shoes when I first put them on as they felt very bulky and heavy and the sole has a bit of a fulcrum that teeters when youre walking in them. As much as I dont like these shoes for just walking around, once I wore them on a ride, I will be hard pressed to use anything other than these shoes for riding. Everything that I felt negative towards these shoes all changed when I used them for what they are designed for, riding! Super grip, excellent thoroughness throughout and an overall perfect MTB shoe if you use platform pedals. Run slightly large but for me the extra room is welcomed when Mtn biking.

At first, I thought they were a bit on the heavy side, but after using them for several rides, I realized that they are great for mountain biking. They are durable yet comfortable. The stiff sole doesn't flex under hard pedaling so I love these shoes. I recommend them to any rider that is looking for a shoe that works well on and off road, and also blends in with your casual riding gear.
I would recommend these to anybody that is looking for a nice looking, durable shoe, that performs well under any circumstance. As a matter of fact, I'm so satisfied with them, I am looking into picking up another pair of Five Ten shoes in the near future. They fit true to size so you do not have to second guess what size to order.

For downhill mtn biking/racing. These shoes are very heavy and heavy duty. If you want a light spd shoe for X-Country these aren't it. These are for aggressive downhill riding/racing with spd's. If you want to use these as flats the Sam Hill-type models are better. With that said I own multiple pairs of Five Tens and they're great! Also, I read a review where someone said they run small. No, they run big -- especially wide. I normally wear 11 to 11 1/2 in bike shoes and I had to drop a half size and almost wish I had dropped a full size. You don't want spd shoes to be loose or you're going to be slipping when you pedal and getting blisters.

These shoes are really comfy. They are big and I notice that they hit the ground when I corner hard (I've got big feet - size 14). Walking around in the shoe is a pleasure and it's easy to forget that they cycling shoes. You will need to grease your cleat for the first ride or else you will have a problem releasing. This problem will stop once the shoe gets worn down on the SPD cutouts.

For everything besides super hot long(30+ mile) rides I prefer these shoes over my XC shoes, specifically for the cleat position and the comfort. I really enjoy the stealth rubber for hike a bike sections, and the sole is stiff enough but not too stiff to be cumbersome on hikes. They breathe well enough, and the shoes do fit 1/2 size large.

Legendary 5.10 grip with clipless function...a winning combo. The tread pattern holds up well, but I had to add a "shoe saver" shim to space the cleat out, as the rubber grips the pedal body so well that release can be difficult. Like most 5.10 shoes I've tried, this one likes to take on water, but that is my only complaint.

Andrew McKee at on 11/18/2013
These shoes run almost an entire size larger. I own multiple Five Ten shoes and had to order these several times to get the right fit.

Be aware these shoes do not fit true to size. You need to order a 1/2 size down from what your normal shoe size it.

Negative Reviews:

If you are going to use this shoe on flat pedals, do not buy it. They are extremely heavy, the rubber is really hard and they are not grippy at all.
