X5 Terra Suede Cycling Shoe
The Fi'zi:k X5 Terra Suede Cycling Shoe is a tough, light, and versatile off-road shoe that combines the performance features you expect from Fi'zi:k with sharp-looking suede uppers for an ultra-supple feel and a unique look out on the trail. They're a great choice for gravel enthusiasts, everyday trail riders, and XC fanatics looking for an excellent fit at a good value.
Compared to the Terra X5 with synthetic Microfiber uppers, this suede version offers extra breathability and enhanced comfort thanks to the pliant characteristics of the natural material. The shoe still offers resistance to cuts or abrasions out on the trail, as well as a water-repellent treatment to protect the material, but you'll enjoy the superior feel of wrapping your foot in supple suede goodness.
The closure system uses a Boa L6 dial that tightens the uppers to your exact liking, plus there's a lower strap to keep your forefoot securely held in place under power. Delving under the shoe, you'll find a co-injected sole of carbon and TPU, which provides an ideal blend of pedaling efficiency and flex, seeing you'll be dismounting over technical trail sections and walking your bike more than in a racier shoe. Aggressive traction lugs fully encompass the sole, so you'll have confidence-inspiring grip, regardless if the trail is comprised of slickrock, packed dirt, gravel, or thick mud.

- Q & A
Excellent shoe as far as I know
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I think these are great shoes for what they are. Meaning shoes which are close to hard shoes like the guys use for racing, but still flexible enough to walk around. And the cleat is recessed so you can hardly hear it clack when you're walking on the street holding your bike. The tread is really aggressive and I can see how people would use these shoes for grabbing through mud. Very aggressive tread. I wear typically size 11.5 sneakers and the size 44.5 was just 1/8 inch too small, and the size 45 the same amount too large. I would have kept the shoe anyway and just a slightly thicker sock. Nevertheless I'm returning the shoe because I really don't like the style (color combination). The BOA lacing system is most excellent in my opinion. I have this on my Winter Mountaineering Boots and also my snowshoes. Quick and easy to tighten quickly and evenly as tight or loose as you want.
Solid and swaggy
Pretty dope, especially for the money. They are more comfortable and more breathable than my VR90’s. I was trying to avoid a shoe with a boa. It is hard to do these days. Super easy on and off. Reasonably stiff sole. Great colorway. Checks a lot of boxes. My only complaint is the boa. Peace
I love the look of the Terra X5 Suede but I have a very wide, short foot. I normally wear a 9 1/2 4E sneaker. I was just wondering what size might be closest to fitting me. I was thinking maybe 43.5? Thanks~Samuel
Hi Samuel! According to the size chart, pulled from the manufacturers site, the correct size for a 9.5 is the 42.5. However, it is not stated here, or on the manufacturers site whether this is a wide fit shoe. Due to this, I think that the 43.5 may create too much space up front in the shoe, and maybe not get wide enough to fit comfortably on your foot. We are happy to return any item that is still new with tags and packaging for a refund at any point. Due to this policy, you could order a couple sizes to try and see about the width, and then send back the ones that are not going to work for a refund!
