Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible durability These shoes are great if you’re only planning on wearing them once or twice. They have good ankle support for being a low top shoe, the soles are super grippy with flat pedals, everything you want in a good mtn bike flat pedal shoe except for the longevity in materials. After the first couple rides I had wore through the soles of the shoe and had chunks flapping off. After a month of riding them I can now see through the sole into the guts and the hard plastic siding is now unmatched and dangles. Good shoe but poor construction and too soft of materials especially for the price tag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Grip, Disgusting Durability Like the other reviews, this shoe would be great except for the fact that it doesn't last at all. The rubber isn't durable enough and the stitching on the toe should wrap all the way around the sole like the original freerider shoe. Why make a shoe with the thinnest and least durable section under the arch of the shoe where the pedal contacts the shoe the most? This would have a five star review it could event last a single season without completely falling apart.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit and grip, very poor durability. After only 2 rides I had holes in the soles, and after half a season of light riding the middle of the sole had separated from the shoe. And the sole is now at a point where I can see the inside materials of the shoes. They're holding together, but barely. For a higher priced shoe I expect decent durability. Especially for someone who only rides at most once a week.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent grip, fits way too small I haven't had a problem with durability at all with these. I've only ridden 100 miles or so in them though. The grip is amazing. The problem I have is with sizing and fit. I bought size 10.5 because that is what I wear in virtually every shoe, whether it's Adidas Maduros, Nike basketball shoes, New Balance running shoes, dress shoes. The only time I wear a size other than 10.5 is for slip on casual shoes and I will get a 10 because my feet are narrow and they fit better. The Freeriders immediately gave me numbness in my toes and hot spots in my arches. I love the grip, but I hate wearing these now. I'm about to go back to super cheap flat generic skate shoes until I can find something with similar grip but a better overal riding feel. Every ride I go on I deal with either numbness or hot spots and usually both. Feeling fatigue in your feet from your shoes really ruins a ride.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great shoe , not that durable as with many of the other review on here i'm stoked with the performance. They my second pair of Fiveten bike shoes (and not my last) but these are no where near as durable as the first pair after about 15 rides the grip is finished and separating from the mid sole .... even so ill likely buy another pair. Its just a shame to have to purchase new shoes each season when the upper is totally fine ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best MTB Shoe! I bought this shoe just over a month ago and can't say enough about how great this shoe is. The rubber sole grips my peddles so well that there is no need for clipless pedals. I wear a size 11.5US shoe and the size 12US was a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from strong and durable.. Great flat pedal shoe, great looking and very sticky sole. For those knuckle heads that don't understand that this is a shoe made for flat pedals while Mt. biking or cycling and not for hiking, basketball, or walking in the mall...Buy a regular pair of shoes for that and stop complaining about a shoe that was made for cycling with flat pedals and not for walking your dog on asphalt! #pullyourheadout!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shoe/Great price I use 5/10’s exclusively for riding and the Freerider at $120 is a good price and by signing up for the email blasts I was able to score another $20 off making for a very nice deal. I was already using a pair of Impacts and I find the freeriders to be tackier and lighter which are both pluses for me.
