Freerider Cycling Shoe

The Five Ten Women's Freerider Shoes add subtle styling to technological features made to shred the gnarliest of trails. In a world of neon trimmings and flashy personalities, these shoes are a contrast of muted colors that let your riding skills take center stage.

Five Ten's non-marking Stealth Phantom rubber was developed for rock climbing shoes. As such, it has excellent grip, which makes it super easy to keep your feet on the pedals. Just think, no shinburger for dinner... again. It's also super durable, which isn't a surprise since the climbing shoes it was first developed for had to suffer the wear and tear of hard granite cliffs for hours on end.

The Freerider Shoes may just have a tougher job. They have to endure the prodding from the metal spikes on your pedals all day, but the Stealth Rubber can take it. Five Ten Stealth Rubber soles will outlast the gum rubber sole on a conventional skate shoe every time and stick better to your pedals.

The Women's Freerider Shoes have all the style that you want and the bomber sole that you need to land big tricks without blowing your feet. The uppers are made of brushed leather and mesh panels, and the toe box is reinforced to provide added protection if you lose it in mid-air.

  • Shoes for mountain biking with flat pedals
  • Stealth Phantom Rubber soles withstand pedal spikes
  • Bomber grip lets you take on technical challenges
  • Reinforced toe box protects you from bruising impacts
  • Leather and mesh panels provide durability and airflow

Great Low Profile Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 6.5

Fits wide, looks great. I feel that they run a little big but not enough to get a smaller size.

Love them!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9

I love this shoe! First wear I notice a big difference with my foot staying on pedals in more technical terrain. Because of the other reviews I read, I ordered and 8.5 and 9 to be sure of fit. I usually wear a size 9 and ended up purchasing the 9 as well. So for me they run true to size.

Fit Wide—HOORAY!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7

We’ve been on a super quest to find mtb shoes that will work for my teen daughter who wears a 7 extra wide running shoe. These do! She feels they’re adequately grippy on her flat peddles, and they don’t make her feet any hotter than regular sneakers. (Now to see on quality how long they’ll hold up....)

Fit Wide—HOORAY!

Structurally Sound as a Flip Flop

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These were great at first, but they don't hold up. I have had them for 5 months and they are now as structurally sound as a flip flop. The soles are completely soft and will not hold grip on my OneUp pedals.

Grippy and Comfy

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I got into mountain biking this summer, and these are my first pair of mountain biking shoes. They really do grip the pedals and they're comfortable as well. I also like that the company sells a 10.5 in this shoe because it's not an easy size to find in most shoes. So far I love these shoes and I'd recommend them to anyone getting into mountain biking.

Helps with Climbs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7

I thought at first these seemed to run little big but I think if it were any smaller than my toes would have hit the side of the shoe. I am regular width. I had problems like others with my left foot falling asleep but after a few months that stopped. I used to have problems with my foot slipping and getting my skins scrapped up on my pedal but with these great grip and some nuke proof grip pedals, that is no longer a problem. The sturdy soles alone with the sole stick has tremendously helped me with up hill climbs, much more safe with no slip and powerful cranking. Everyone was right about these being an essential especially for very technical riding and up hills. I have used them now on very technical black diamond trails and they were great. I love them.

Five Ten Women's Freerider Shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9

I'm new to mountain biking, and did not want to get cleated shoes yet. So, I spoke with some friends, read impartial reviews, and bought this shoe. Fits great, true to size, laces tightly and hugs my cleated pedals. Highly recommended.

Great looking shoe

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 6.5

Bought these for my wife after I bought myself a similar pair of shoes. She ordered her normal size but they are definitely bigger then she expected. We were going to exchange them but after checking around. A half size lower is unlikely right now. That being said they look nice and I’m hoping once she breaks them in she will enjoy them as much as I do. I may have her try some insoles are some of you have suggested!

Great looking shoe

Excellent biking shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

This is my first pair of biking shoes and I couldn’t be happier with how much they’ve improved my riding experience. I previously wore running shoes and had issues with my feet slipping off the pedals. I’m also not ready to go for clip-in shoes (maybe some day) so I did some research and landed on this pair. They’ve got 3 features that have made biking better: cushioning, stiffness, and my feet do not budge from the pedals! I get so excited every time I put these on to head out for a ride!
For sizing I took an 8 - in regular shoes I’m usually a 7-7.5, running shoes I take an 8.5, so the 8 is the perfect size with lots of room in the toe box.
Did some price comparison and Backcountry had the best price. Doesn’t hurt too that they’re an awesome company to buy from!

Stiff Sole & Comfy Shoe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

For mountain biking, I decided to go with Chester pedals and a good stiff sole shoe instead of toe clips or clipless pedals for easier bailing when necessary. These shoes are awesome on or off the bike! Comfy to wear and sturdy to stick to the pedals. The pins on the Chesters fit nicely in the grooves of the shoe sole. Super sticky! I have had to bail a few times and felt confident in my Freeriders.

You'll want these!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: 8

I adore my freeriders, they're great. I appreciate the stiff soul & love the color. They've held up as I've been beating the crap out of them. I will buy more when these finally go. I bought a size 8 as the 8.5 was much too large. I typically wear 8 to 8.5 in shoes & have narrow feet. 8 is the way to go if you're in that same category.

Super Plush!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 6.5

I have been mountain biking for over 30 years and recently decided to try flats due chronic knee pain. These shoes are super comfy and plush and have eliminated most of the knee troubles! They do run a little big. I likely could have returned for a half size smaller, but was not sure how the packing out of the shoe over time vs foot swelling on a ride would play out. I wound up putting another (generic) footbed in each shoe, which took up some of the volume (as other reviewers have pointed out, they are also wide). So far, once I put these on, I totally forget about them so = success!

runs slightly big for me

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8

510s are definitely the grippier than Giro or Ride Concepts. But I find these to run just a little big and had to size down half a size. They are also a little wide so the amount I have to tighten them kind of squishes the front together and looks funny. But none-the-less, these are my go to riding shoes now!

five ten shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

bought for my daughter for days she's a little leery of the clips. Have held up really well, everything I've seen on the five tens has been great in that aspect. The rest here is here opinion on them. They hold to the pins in the pedal really well, really secure feel. Comfortable even on longer or rough rides.


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've been riding for about two years but hadn't made the move to mountain biking shoes - total game changer. Sticky on the pedals and I'm riding with much more confidence!

Great shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super sticky for your bike and comfortable to wear around town.

Favorite bike shoe

    These are my go-to bike shoes. The sole is thick, durable, and grippy. My feet stay on my pedals. The shoes are durable and last a long time. Very comfortable.

    Best choice flat shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I have put these to the test on ultra-distance mountain bike and bikepacking rides, and they are without a doubt the most comfortable over the long haul. I have done the same with the Specialized 2FO, the Five Ten Freerider Contact shoes, and the Freerider Pro. Although the others all have stiffer soles, and many would *assume* that would mean better pedaling performance on long rides, what that meant for me is that my feet developed painful sore spots. This never happened with the good old Freeriders. Even though mine are practically falling apart, I choose them for long rides when I have all of these nicer newer looking shoes to choose from. I should have stayed with them, and saved myself a lot of money trying so-called stiffer-soled "better climbers". I never have trouble sliding off of the pedal (as with the 2FO's). The traction is as good as it gets. The negative is that with all sticky-rubber soled shoes, you are going to see them wear more quickly than less sticky rubber. I believe that's just the nature of the rubber compound. It's a trade-off I'm willing to make.

    Stiff Soul

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I started mountain biking in trail runners, and thought i could get by like that.
    My more seasoned pals informed me that i needed to get this pair of shoes, and they were so right. The sole is completely sticky and when i stomp on my pedals they stick where they should. It is also very stiff for a more responsive performance, and help prevent foot fatigue.

    I love mountain biking, and the first place to start is with your feet. Get these!
    i wear street shoe size 6.5, and ordered a 6.5 my next pair will be a 7 to accommodate foot swelling in my ride.

    Great Shoes

      Best shoes for riding flats. Wouldn’t buy anything else. Comfortable and true to size
