Rated 5 out of 5 by STW1 from Awesome shoe just the best shoe available for riding flat pedals. it's just that simple. these are the best. note that sizing is different from older shoes. If you were riding the original free riders, for example in size 8.5, you will want to size these up to 9 or maybe even 9.5

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ceecee from It's No Freerider Contact Though industry reviews on this shoe are generally positive, I'm a little disappointed. They're a bit stiffer than the Contacts which they were supposed to replace, but at the cost of an extra two or three millimeters of stack height. Fit at heel is less secure, and based on measurements of Pro vs Contact insoles, the back half of the Pro is a bit wider. Laces on Contact are positioned slightly further forward and the split structure of first two eyelets allows for a snugger lacing. Narrow feet beware. Between the bulkier/roomier fit and the irregular tread, fine edging control suffers in the Pros. The nonsmooth tread also makes repositioning slightly more difficult. Lengthwise, sizing is the same, as is forefoot width, though the Pro is higher volume in forefoot and bunches up more when foot articulates at ball. If I had it to do over again, I'd choose Contact without hesitation for the lower stack height, racier fit, and finer control at pedal. Supposedly the Pros are going to last longer, but as they've only been worn for six hours, this remains to be seen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by fastkevin from Getting Tighter As "Pistol' said, the right toe box is tighter/narrower than the left. I thought something was wrong with my fricken foot until I read his review. I had to buy totally different model, and even then size up to 11(from 10) just so there was enough room in the toe box. I don't understand what 5-10 is doing. I've still gotta paid of Sam Hill's(with the predictable front rubber delaminating from the show) that fit me perfect in a 10. Up til a 2-3 years ago, 5-10's fit me perfectly. Now, it's like they're sizing them for for people with smaller and narrower feet, who want to feel 'bigger' by buying larger sizes. I'm on the verge of shopping other brands, and that's something I haven't done in a decade+

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pistol from Jury still out Bought these based on price and good reviews. Had been using fiveten Spitfires for the past 3 years. My Spitfires fit like a glove, are still working great with lots of tread life left but just wanted a change. These pros are definately stiffer in the soles and the reinforced toe box is a nice feature. Im still not sure I like how they fit, they seem to feel really narrow even though I went up a size (10.5) because reviews said it runs tight in the toe width. Funny thing with these is my rt. shoe fits tighter than the left even though my left foot is a tad larger than my right. After a 3 hour ride I can feel pain in my foot. I might have to use a shoe tree to strech the right and then see if it feels looser. Like I said I got these shoes for 100.00 so will keep them and see if they grow on me. Oh, one other thing my 3 year old Spitfires have better pedal grip than these new Freerider Pros. Go figure?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sir fallsoffalot from Hot hot hot but sticky. First ride, 25 degrees c. Very light effort. Duration 1.5 hours. Sweat lots through feet 8 gallons! Oh my goodness these are without doubt the hottest things I have ever put on my feet, I honestly wouldn't have bought them if I'd have been smart enough to realise that a rubber shoe probably wouldn't breath that well. They stick to the pedals amazingly and are very rigid, with a great fit but I just can't get over how little they breath and how hot they get. Not looking forward to a long ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perpetualweekend from Best flat pedal shoe These Freerider Pro's are the best-performing flat pedal shoes I've worn. I wear 10.5US M in most shoes and have owned two pairs of these in 10.5 -These Freerider Pros have stiff midsoles which aids pedaling efficiency. They're quite stiff out of the box, not so much as spd shoes, but much stiffer than other bike-specific non-spd shoes I've owned. Forefoot flex limbers up and pedal feel gets a more sensitive after a few days -They fit longer than most other 5.10 shoes but those couple mm's of space in front of my toes has proved useful when tagging rocks. Toe box wiggle room plus some stiff material under the plastic toe guard has probably saved me from a broken toe or two. -If they get soaked from rain or stream crossings, they dont absorb much water weight, the snug fit doesnt change, and dry overnight (unlike Impacts and skate shoes). -Durability is great. Wore one pair for about 18 months, riding year round, before buying a new pair. That first pair is now on it's second life as kayaking shoes. Even with worn down and pedal-chewed soles, the rubber compound is like suction cups for walking on wet rocks

Rated 5 out of 5 by Houck from Grip for days I can’t believe the amount of grip these shoes have, they are unbelievable. I would recommend going up a half size from what you would typically buy from any athletic shoe. They are chunky and with the toe protection, that extra room feels a lot better than cramming your toes against the stiff toe cap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RyanICIA from Excellent shoe Great shoe as expected from 5.10. Slightly stiffer than the original as advertised, with more toe protection. The fit is a bit narrower, although I didn’t find any need to size up from the standard freeriders as some reviewers have noted. I still wear both but got these for the weather resistance and quicker drying features.
