Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have been a long term 5.10 user. I love my old 5.10 shoes, which fit to size and finally died. I love my Adidas soccer shoes and they fit to size. But, unfortunately, since Adidas-outdoor has taken over 5.10 shoes, they just don't fit the same. I find them about a 1/4 size too large, such that they now feel sloppy in a size 10. In my hunt for a "new" 5.10 (Freerider pro) shoe, I tried a size 8.5 mens (too large), then a size 8.0 mens (too small), then the women's size 10 (too large) and I am not going to try a women's size 9.5 because the women's 10/men's 8.5 were very comparable. Finally, I find the sole does not feel rigid enough for me, now, and I'm not sure if that's because of size or because of a change in manufacture process. Either way, I am not going to stick around to find out and I am going to explore other brands and/or hunt for some old 5.10s still kicking around in my size. Possibly these new-5.10s would be adequate for the job if they fit?? Possibly not because if the sole is not as rigid as before? Best of luck with whatever you decide.
