"Five Ten® is the undisputed king of high performance, flat pedal, foot wear."
Wow... undisputed KING!? That's a nice title, thanks PinkBike
Here's what they had to say about 3 of our freeriding models:
Karver: "...a godsend for those riders who are prone to catching their inner ankle bone on the crank arms. The most prominent feature on the Karvers are its shielding lace covers [that] serve to keep your laces from coming undone and catching in your drivetrain, as well as keeping them (and your feet) dry on wet days...Five Ten's Stealth outsole not only sticks to pedals like gum to the underside of a desk, but also tends to absorb more trail vibrations and shock than a standard skate shoe's sole."
Freerider: "Its cut resembles a typical skate shoe, but incorporates bike friendly features like reinforced stitching and protective toe boxes that add a degree of safety that you wouldn't find on a run a the mill shoe. The underside of the Freerider's feature Five Ten's Stealth Phantom sole that is as sticky as ever, but won't mark floors with black skid marks..."
Spitfire: "...combines classic skate style with Five Ten's proven Stealth high friction outsole. This mid top shoe is versatile enough to be at home on the mountain bike or in the skate park, but fashionable enough to wear out on the town after riding, without looking like a kook."
