Five TenFreerider Shoe - Men's

Looks aren’t everything.

Known for its rock climbing shoes, Five Ten made the Freerider Shoes with the same grippy tech to create a shoe that is ideal for platform pedals. Stealth Rubber is not only grippy, it is also durable, designed to withstand the demands of long hours adhering to granite rock. This means that it won’t blink at the prodding of your metal pedal spikes, and it will outlast even the most expensive gum rubber soled shoes. The uppers are constructed of brushed nubuck leather and breathable mesh to keep your feet cool.

    Makes a Huge Difference

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got these for my husband because he rides mountain bikes in skate shoes. He was very skeptical that mountain biking shoes would make a difference, but he admitted that these definitely do. The grippy bottom makes it feel like you are clipped in and secure on the flat pedals. They fit him true to size.

    loving it

    • Fit: True to size

    Stick to the pedals. Highly ventilated. Not for cold days


    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I got for casual rides, once I put them on I notices that they weren't going to work for me. Super nice looking not what I was looking for.

    Awesome MTB Shoe!

    I am newer to flat pedal and needed some grippy rubber to help give me a confidence boost. These shoes did the trick! Not only are they grippy, but they have a super solid feel when riding too!

    My Everyday Shoe

    It's no secret there is no better shoe for flat pedal riding. A perfect interface with the stealth sole your feet will stay planted regardless of terrain. That's pretty common knowledge in the mountain bike world but what's most impressive is these have become my everyday shoe. I've got 3 pair! They are stylish, confortable, and up to the task of an impromptu DJ session after work.

    Great Gift

    I bought these for my dad. I'm not a mountain biker so I don't know much but he loves these! He wanted them because he said all of his friends have them, so they must be pretty good!

    Super grippy and good protection

    This is my first MTB Flat shoe (I always used clipless) and I love them. This stick like glue to my RaceFace Chesters. They are bit chuncky and heavy, but that has been a plus here in Arizona's rocky trails. Bashed my feet several times and these shoes protected me far better than anything I have used before. Sizing was spot on.

    Fresh pair of Freeriders!!!

    This is my second pair for Freeriders and I really love these shoes. If you have a quality pair of flat pedals then these things are going to hook up and stay on the pedals. I use the Race Face Atlas pedals and these shoes literally get stuck on them to where i can't move my foot around on the pedal. I absolutely love them.

    my first pair of mountain bike shoes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love them so far! I can really tell a difference with the stiff sole compared to other shoes I have been wearing. Im relatively new to mountain biking but could tell a difference immediately on my first ride out with these. They are a good hiking shoe too if you need to walk a section or get around a puddle. I normally wear an 11 or an 11.5 in my other shoes and I went with the 11.5 in these and they fit perfect.

    Such a difference

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    I had never used shoes that were specifically designed for mtb, but I noticed the difference between these and my usual tennis shoes right away. They stick well and are shaped for the pedal. Not to mention the reinforced toe and they actually look cool enough to wear out after the ride if need be.

    New Favorite Skate Shoe

    Awesome shoe!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Very stiff sole with really sticky rubber! Perfect for long downhills. Wear size 10us/43eu in all other street, running, and approach shoe bit wear a 9.5 in these.

    Do these shoes work well for everyday use other than biking?

    Yes I use them for both training on pavement and dirt trails. They are better quality tan any shoe I have purchased for the money.

    Great shoe!!!! LOVE!!!!!

    I just returned from cycling in Vietnam and Cambodia where I used these shoes. I always ride road bikes and am clipped in But for this trip and the rough and dirt roads, and even maneuvering city traffic,I needed to be unclipped. The 510's were awesome in every condition. City, trails dirt, rain...and most important I rode with confidence. Thanks to the great people at Backcountry for your wise advice on this and other equipment.

    Sweet shoe

      I really like these shoes great colors and they are a great fit
