Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for flat pedal biking Fit: true to size, the fit was perfect. I need a wide toe box and these were also perfect in that regard. They were comfortable out of the box. Grip: This is my first pair of Five Tens. I have read all the hype about superior grip, etc. I have to say these live up to the hype. Features: The shoe feels well padded, but padding is not too soft, so they fit snugly but not tight. Sole is stiff enough that pedal pressure is not too concentrated under foot, but not too stiff that walking is awkward. Laces are thick and plenty long enough. Overall, I am very pleased with this shoe and would recommend for flat pedal mountain (or other) biking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work great, I wish they offered them in wide These shoes definitely deliver what they promise. Quality feel materials, comfy tongue, stick to my pedals (Spanks) like glue. Almost too well, you really have to lift your foot off to re position. They don't feel they were super stiff, but with a wide platform pedal I didn't feel the need for a overly rigid sole, I'd rather have them be walkable, which they are. My only complaint, and this isn't really a product flaw, I have wide feet, and these are definitely on the narrow side. I bought a half size up and I really had to loosen the laces, not ideal, but after a few rides it seems to work. A bigger size up would have been stupid long. I haven't had them long enough to speak to durability, but the quality seems to be there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from new to flat pedals after 20 years of riding SPD clipless pedals, I am trying out flat pedals. of course I had to hang up the Sidis'. Bought these 5 10s. true to size. great comfort. they grip like crazy on my Ouzzy flats. I thought the exposed laces would get caught on the chain ring. But unlike a road bike, a 30T chain ring is too small to get your laces caught. It won't happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe but sizing is a problem Started searching for platform shoes since I've abandoned clips for MTB riding. Ordered these online based on posted reviews and Five Ten's reputation for quality climbing shoes. Ordered my normal size even though some reviews suggested the Freerider's were a bit narrow. After wearing them around the house for a several hours and with the lightest of socks, I've concluded the length is OK but they are too narrow to be comfortable. No quibbles whatsoever with the shoes except the fit. Will have to return them to REI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great New Biking Shoes I own a fitness bike and generally ride 15-25 miles in one day. These shoes went on their first ride yesterday and were very comfy. Stylish-looking too! Although they are billed as a "mountain biking shoe", they are perfect for my style of cycling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great MTB shoes Comfortable and great functional design. Tread grips pedals for those don't want clip in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort! Bought these shoes and it change my confidence in riding. Even off the bike the shoe is very comfortable when walking the streets or hiking. Very sturdy. Hands-down this company makes great out door gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe - Solid traction Well designed shoe that's very sticky on a Mtn Bike with the right platform pedal setup. Glad I purchased though I wish they could make a lighter version of the shoe- overall the feel is a little clunky.
