Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

It's sure to please most riders, from casual weekend riders to aggressive enduro riders and everyone in between.
The Freerider Pro reviewed here isn't an entirely new model, but it recently underwent a substantial revision, returning with an updated sole, a reinforced toe box, and a lighter weight.
Durability wise, the Freerider Pros are a return to form for Five Ten. Our test pair shows no signs of delamination around the outsole after 5 months of riding.

What reviewers didn't like

It was also incredibly durable, which made swallowing the price tag a little easier. That said, it didn't score as high as other shoes in our test.
I've had mixed luck with the fit of Five Ten's shoes over the years. Some models fit me just fine, while others have felt boxy and overly roomy.
Beyond the low-cut heel, the Freerider Pro’s fit is average, if not slightly slim.
