These shoes are magic. They grip unbelievably and gave me the confidence I needed to go on an amazing and steep rocky climb. I'm not athletic and I'm afraid of heights but I love Acadia National Park in ME and I was able to climb my first mountain. I feel amazing and I love these shoes!

I commute to work 14 miles round-trip 5 days a week on a Trek fitness bike. For biking shoes, I was just using some Basics walking shoes which were okay, but if the pedals or shoe bottoms got the slightest bit wet, or if I hit some rough spots in the road it was a challenge to keep them on the pedals. Others had recommended I invest in clipless pedals and shoes, but I was fearful of the "training" period, forgetting to unclip at a stop light, and falling over. I did some more online research and read where some commuters like myself were wearing Five Ten shoes because of their sticky bottom. I couldn't find anyone locally who carried Five Ten shoes to get a close-up view but Zappos had them and on sale too. I pulled the trigger and ordered them and received them in about 10 days. My first reaction was they look great and appear to have a solid build. The stiffness of the sole is like a steel toe work boot with little flex but the insole and uppers are well-cushioned and comfortable on the foot. The sticky sole is audibly apparent when walking on a solid surface like linoleum or laminate flooring but not on concrete or asphalt. The shoe's stiffness would exclude it from being a comfortable shoe for walking around the neighborhood or mall, but that's not what their designed for. On their maiden voyage, I noticed right away that the shoes had a firm presence on the pedals. When I hit rough spots on the ride where my Basics would normally bounce off, the Five Tens kept their place. I haven't tested them in wet conditions yet but I feel certain they'll do the job. As for fit, I wear a size 10 dress shoe, so I followed the rule of thumb and went one size up for the Five Tens. I also wear a wide width, so it was a concern being these only come in a medium width. However, I knew with Zappos return policy I could easily send them back. Thankfully, the medium width turned out to be generous and the size 11 was spot on. If these were court shoes, I might have gone up to an 11.5 for the extra toe room, but again they're a good fit for their intended purpose.

Super tight--picture an eagle talon. Quality product though. For the record, I really don't know much about climbing but my brother who does said the shoes should fit very tight, and essentially force your foot to curve. This shoe definitely accomplishes that, think eagle talon curvature. I will have to get a bigger size. I wear size 10.5 in every day shoes but ordered 10 in these. My brother has a size 10.5 of the same shoe and those are still too tight (for comfort, maybe not utility?).

I had to send these back twice to get the size right. I ended up wearing an 11.5 and my normal shoe size is 10. I've had this issue with other approach shoes in the past, which is why I recommend buying them from Zappos. The Zappos return policy makes it relatively easy to get the size right without to much expense or hassle. Once I got the right size, the shoe fit really well. I do have a narrow foot. These shoes are kind of a hybrid between running shoes and approach shoes. They look less like climbing shoes, but they also don't feel as "quick" on my feet as my other approach shoes.

Overall a good riding shoe with good support. Big issue was the soles left black marks all over my house, which means you can't wear these for riding and every day use....bummer.

The build of this mtb shoe is great. The inside of the footbed feels great. Protection from impact is top notch. The problem is the upper tongue which is a little too short to prevent the velcro strap from hitting the front of your ankle. I had to cut mine a little to alleviate the issue. the strap isn't meant to maintain your foot so you don't have to velcro the strap tight. It's just to keep the laces tidy and away from moving parts on your bike. For all mountain shoes, they aren't heavy.

The toe area of these shoes goes to a point, not rounded at the front. Feet are not pointed at the end, so why are these shoes. If you like shoes that are rounded, like Keen shoes, then don't even try these. They also run big, they were probably 3/4 of a size too big. Very heavy, too.

First pair of Five Tens I've owned do nothing to compare them to but I've been riding singletrack with them for a solid month or so and they are absolutely fantastic. Super comfortable. After a few rides they broke in rather nicely. I experience zero pain. Great support, heel and toe protected nicely from any rocks etc. pair these shoes with a good set of flat pedals and the grip you get is unreal. Took me a few sessions to get used to them because if you put your foot down and it's not the right place they grip so well you have to lift the shoe slightly to reposition. But once you get used to that they really do lock you in rather nicely. I was using my regular skate shoes before this and must say it's night and day difference. If you want to ride flat pedals, give these a shot. I don't think youlll be dissapounted.

I began rock scrambling about a month ago out in dry canyon areas and my normal hiking shoes weren't enough to grip the dusty rocks. My rock scrambling group told me about Five Tens and encouraged me to purchase a pair before I went on any rock scrambling events graded above a class 2. Boy were they ever right about that recommendation! The very first rock scramble I did after receiving these shoes in the mail was join a Class 4 rock scramble event, which is the highest class you can go before you need a rope, and the difference between these shoes and my trail hiking shoes was night and day. It's honestly not even a comparison. I felt like Spiderman the way they gripped the rocks, I was able to run up dusty sandstone slabs with 80-degree inclines without slipping or struggling. These shoes GRIP. Like, really grip. If you are doing any sort of activity that requires gripping power from your footwear, BUY THESE SHOES. These shoes are also comfortable and didn't cause any blisters, even on my first rock scramble. I saw from some of the other reviews that the laces might be "slippery" but I did not have that issue, my laces never once came untied or caught on anything, even when part of my rock scrambles required me to climb/walk directly through thorn bushes, brambles, and cacti in the desert. Overall, these are good shoes. They are well-made and worth the price.

These shoes have completely changed my riding. I recently switched from clipless pedals to some Crank Brothers flats but was wearing some old sneakers with them. I noticed that my legs were fatiguing really early on in the ride and I was focusing more on where my feet were than my riding. Not any more! These shoes are so sticky, I don't even notice that I'm not clipped in. The stiff soles help with leg fatigue and I'm riding faster and further than ever before. Highly recommend!

I bought these because I decided to convert to flat pedals on my mountain bike, after decades of being clipped in. Great choice! The shoes are comfortable, secure, cool, and supportive on trails; they also work very well for hiking or just walking around. Should have gotten them sooner!

The shoe was nice looking and I really wanted it to work - but there is exposed stitching in the inside of the shoe all along the toe box. To top it of the shoe runs very short so my toes rubbed against the stitching. The stitching is so abrasive that it can be felt thru padded wool socks. I ordered size 10 - which is the size of my much loved 2016 Freerider canvas shoes. The Freerider contact are shorter.

The side of the shoe has exposed and weak threads that have ripped. Nothing like the duralumin'sability of my last pair of five-tens

These are exactly what I needed, if you are just thinking about buying five tens don't hesitate. Fits small so size up a half size.

I have a high instep and these are very very tight there. Also I felt like you could feel each little knob on the bottom when you walked.

The shoes run a bit big and wide, which is great for my wide feet. I like that they have a rugged look and decent support, without the weight of trail runners. Perfect for walking the golden retriever around the neighborhood, on trails or at the beach.

These shoes look good, but they are quite heavy and stiff. I've had them for a month now and they are still quite uncomfortable to walk in. Have not had any quality issues with them as other reviewers seem to have had. If I had to do it over again, I would not buy these shoes, but rather look for a more soft and pliable shoe that also was much lighter.

Grippy, comfy, protective...great shoe for lift service mountain biking. No funny looks walking into the bar wearing these shoes either. Wouldn't be a problem to use these for regular biking, but a little heavy.

Doesn't fit as well as Freeride. Sizing seems small.

These shoes have awesome grip on platform pedals - don't have to worry about rough terrain. However, they are the hottest shoes I have ever owned. There is absolutely NO ventilation in these things. Probably great for cold weather, but not April - October in North Carolina. I'm thinking about punching some holes in them to make them more tolerable.
