Amelia C.wrote a review of Five Ten Freerider VXi Shoes on September 12, 2014
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
So far these seem like a great shoe. I ordered them a half size too small at first and was concerned because my feet went numb just wearing them around the house in preparation to ride, but the issue was much better (almost non-existent) when I sized up. I've only taken these on a few rides so far, but they are very comfortable and super sturdy feeling. I use them for general riding--not downhill specific--on flat pedals because of several knee injuries. I went back and forth about what set-up was best, and I'm really happy with this one so far. They are definitely very grippy on the pedals and I feel very comfortable that I won't slip off but can adjust my footing when I need to. Only time will tell how they hold up!
