My Five Ten Contact Freerider's are de-lamming on the sole from about a year's riding, which is a bummer cause the rest of the shoe is still in decent shape. I'm thinking about buying the Adidas Terrex Trail SL since it comes in a size 14, and they look like they may be a bit better built than the Five Ten shoes. . .

What are you enjoying? I ride mostly XC to AM stuff with a little bit of DH.

Interested in this thread! Both of the shoes you have mentioned are on my radar. Looking to get the adidas as a hiking shoe but it would be great if they worked well on the bike too!

The Terrex is a great shoe, well made and sturdy though not exactly lightweight. The build and styling is a bit more like a hiking shoe than a skate shoe and it does have some deeper tread on the toe and heel but I wouldn't say it's great for hiking in anything other than the dry because it's still a flat shoe after all.

It has a stealth sole like the 5-10s with a triangular tread and seems grippy and hard wearing enough and the heel and toe are reinforced. Definitely worth a look.

I have the Terrex now and it is a light sturdy shoe with a pretty rigid sole but not sure if it is all Stealth rubber. Maybe just the front sole but it is grippy on the pedals. Great price compared to 5-10

I've had two pairs of freeriders delam in two years, but I love the shoe. I just picked up shoe adhsive called shoe goo and reglued the areas where the sole is detaching. So far so good, It has been holding up for about a month without any sign of delamming again.

I have the Giro Jackets
They're very comfortable and grip to my Diety pedals well
I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a pair of good shoes
They have lasted well so far too (almost a year and look brand new still)

I got a pair of SCG shoes Mid tops back in october. They last a really long time. Small brand, mostly bmx, but are damn good! I've been trying to get them into doing more with MTB, since they already work so well.

My Sam Hill 5:10 are great would definitely recommend and still going after 2 years! That said I have a mate who just rides in steal toecap safety shoes from work, he says for DH they're the best thing hes ever ridden in.

I ended up getting a pair of freerider pros, which work well, but they look like the uppers are made from plastic....hopefully they last longer than my freerider contacts did.

Also on the Terrex bandwagon, prefer them over my Freeriders.
