First of all.... Five ten shoes make what is called a "true fit". that means you measure your foot from heal to toe and order that number.... I used to where etnies, vans, and other various types of those shoes... and because of the fluff in them I'd always get a full size or half size bigger.... I didn't have a local shop that sold them so I ordered online and got 10's (bigger then my foot) instead of 9 1/2 because I thought, "oh sure, true fit's, whatever" and surprise.... I had to send 'em back and get 9 1/2's, the actual size of my foot. Order the actual size of your foot. not what you wear in other shoe sizes, ok? also, I have read a few reviews the say the shoes are wide.... well, they are wider if you have a narrow foot!!!!!! again... when you figure out the size of your foot, pay attention to the width.... these are truly a Medium width. and my right foot is 9 1/2, D wide (or medium width). Fun fact for those who don't think about it... your dominant side of your body is always almost just a slightest degree larger so you always want to fit to the dominant side, in this case my right even though I measured both feet to make sure, and guess what? these fit perfectly!!! better then any shoe I have ever owned. if you have high arches these don't have high arches you may need arch support fit into them. I have relatively flat right foot (broke an ankle and apparently the doctor casted too tight, reshaped my foot a little.... derp....) and my left foot has got some arch but not a high arch. these shoes work really fine for both feet and I can walk on them for a day at the park and feel comfortable all day... You should know, that these Five Ten's and the "impacts" model, which are even stiffer, are relatively stiff compared to other shoes when you first get them... (i mean, they are made that way on purpose because they are a purpose built shoe for riding Freeride and Downhill bicycles and they are made to connect to the pedal and then add support to the foot as your whole foot doesn't sit on the pedal, so keep that in mind) after a week or two of riding or like 3 or 4 week of light walking around they soften up some and feel really natural to slip into and and run around in riding or walking. These are fairly rugged shoes.... they really can take a beating. I have several pairs that i decided to use for summer construction because they were comfortable and tough and i didn't feel like buying more boots before classes started for 3 months of work. I've had a pair that i decided to buy specifically for walking' around in and have had them for three years with just a little riding on them. again, these shoes are made to be survivable so the price is good since you can get long use out of them. I only buy new pairs cause the old ones get turned into work shoes and playing' in the dirt shoes and keep the new ones for looking' nice when in the city. You will not want these shoes for any gym floor use.... Five Ten created mostly climbing shoes at first as a company and there "stealth Rubber" is what is used in climbing shoes originally, because of this soft rubber you have some of the most amazing grip on rocks and such... that same rubber is used in their bicycling shoes. part of it's grip come from that rubber and how it's made. it's very soft so it will rub of on gem floors with the littlest of effort expended. Great for sticking to pedals for this reason. ok.... there you have it. Five ten is a comfortable, high quality, purpose built shoe. It's a "true fit" brand. I love 'em. haven't owned anything different for years. But they are appropriate for my feet more then anything and I like the heavier, tough, rugged feeling they have.

Got these shoes to use as approach shoes for climbing. Love them! Perfectly stiff and they look great. Rubber soles stick to everything, I use these to warm up on easy climbs. Also great for mountain biking. Very happy with this sturdy shoe!

Great shoes for extreme hiking! I hike with groups that do significant scrambling with some exposure; these shoes are comfortable, breathable, and the soles really grab the rocks and reduce slipping.

These are outstanding shoes. There is nice room in the toe box and plenty of support. The flat sole works great on all terrain. Buy them - you cannot go wrong.

This shoe is incredibly comfortable and soundly crafted! However, the sizing was a bit snug and seemingly smaller than usual (about 1/2-1 size smaller). No worries, though! I ordered a new pair with a larger size. Thus far, I'm very impressed with Zappos' return policy and how convenient and easy it is! Thank you!

These fit great after sizing down a good bit from street size; I went with a 9.5 and I wear a 10.5 approach and 11 running or street shoe. They are quite snug but not painful and will probably stretch out a good bit if what I've read is true, but they edge well now and just feel solid on small holds and sticky on friction all with out a painful fit. There are diminishing returns from too tight a shoe to the point where micro holds are impossible and all you can think about is getting them off. I did that with a pair of cobras a number of years back and won't make that mistake again. You really have to try a few different kinds and sizes before you get a feel for what is possible and what you have to live with and these were the answer for me. Nice to try em on at home and really give it some thought too, sales people in a store aren't going to have to wear them all day or shake out on some tiny face holds w/o rolling off em. Thanks Zappos for making it easier to fit these right.

These shoes are torture to put on let alone stand up in. I ordered a size bigger and they were so painfully tight and the arch was unnatural. I am returning these tomorrow.

These shoes are surprisingly stiff along the last. Still, they are very comfortable. The soles are exceptionally 'grippy.' Overall construction is excellent.

I am a size 8 and bought these in a 9.5 because I tried them on at a sports store before. I am really liking these shoes for my first pair of climbing shoes!

Bought these as a new daily shoe. Very comfortable, solid and supportive. The yellow color is still bright and hasn't turned ugly. I use them for general stomping, hiking, river exploration, mountain biking, heel-toe shifting my race car, and love them. They are awesome on river rock. My only wish is for them to be made more locally! C'mon FiveTen!

These are great shoes. They are well made, I have arthritis and bunions, I tried dozens of shoes, and these were the only ones that fit. I need rocker front, stiff sole, support, roomy toe box. I called corporate and they are very helpful. I took half a size larger. I like the style and use them as my snow boots. I do not think that they would fit narrow feet.

Okay, so I wrote a review about a month ago and can now do a followup. As I said previously, these shoes run small. I received the 11.5, and though I wear a 10-10.5 street shoe, the 11.5 fit well. I'd say upsize this shoe from your street shoe by 1.5 if you prefer to wear socks to climb (like I do) or 1 if you don't wear socks. The shoe itself is super. It will loosen up a bit after a few days on the rocks, but I still think my aforementioned upsizing advice is accurate. Thanks again to Zappos for accepting my returns until I found the correct size! On Belay!

If you mountain bike and use flat pedals, these are a must. Very sturdy, stiff sole and sticky. I feel totally confident riding fast down rough terrain, knowing that my feet will stay put. I've also used them for bike commuting in rain and they hold the grip there as well. Highly recommended.

I've been wearing 5.10 impacts biking for almost 10 years, wore out several pairs of lows and highs. Skeptical about the plastic look of the new styles. First ride, Wow, amazed, I forgot I even had them on, light, grippy, and water resistant. 2nd ride, damn I love these!

Awesome mtb shoe, heavy as crap but they can take anything you can throw at them. Crossing creeks carrying a 40lb mtn bike is not easy, but the S1 rubber on these shoes give you solid footing that won't let you down when you gotta rock hop to the other side.

Absolutely fabulous for use with studded, flat pedals. Just as secure as clip less and whole lot more practical for city riding. My foot simply does not move around and fun factor is increased.

These shoes run MASSIVELY small. Up size your street shoe by 1 to 1.5 sizes and they should fit properly as a snug climbing shoe. Thank goodness Zappos policies are so forgiving, as I'm on my third order to find the right size. I wear a 10-10.5 street shoe depending on manufacturer, but I'm now awaiting a size 11.5 in the 5.10 shoe in hopes it fits without "knuckling" my toes so badly as the 10, 10.5, and 11 sizes have. Heck, I couldn't even get into the size 10!

The Five Ten Free Rider is similar to what I am use to in the old style skate shoe For the last 10 years I have bought old school converse skate shoes This time around I was unable to find the same shoe that fit I have a wide foot some consider triple E and then some just a regular D I have noticed all of the shoes I have tried recently are a size narrower than I have previously experienced so in the case of the Five Ten I have gone one half size up to accommodate my foot width. The Free Rider by Five Ten has a slightly wider and lower heal than other shoes I have tried or worn in the recent past. The shoes sole material itself is high on the durometer scale and I may need an insert for longer distance use. Overall I have no buyers remorse.

I love Fiveten shoes and own pairs in a wide variety of models. I think I preferred the older version of the camp four but this is still a very good shoe. I had found in the past that Fiveten shoes tend to fit a tad on the smaller side and, therefore ordered a half size bigger. This time, they feel a bit big but still very comfy.
