Just like running or hiking selecting the proper shoe is key for riding mountain bikes. Whether using flats or clipless pedals having a comfortable and supportive shoe can make all the difference in a ride. Andrew is a friend of the shop and he shares his thoughts with us on the Five Ten Freerider flat pedal shoes. Check it out!
When looking for shoes I had a hard time finding any that fit my size 14 foot. The only shoes that I could find were the Five Ten Freerider shoes. I had heard that the durability of them has been crap in recent years. I have had these shoes for over two months now and can say that they have been holding up great. I have run them into trees and fallen into the sand and the shoes still perform great.
I started out mountain biking using clips. I wanted to try flats to try harder things and have the ability to step off the pedal. Coming from clips I needed shoes that would perform like clips. These shoes have been perfect in feeling like clips but also having the ability to step off when I get way over my head.
So having Five Tens as the only option is not a bad thing. These shoes are great and I will buy them again when I wear the current pair out
