Yeah, he's like a bad case of herpes, just keeps coming back and annoying ya with the incessant itching...

Just ordered a pair of the new Adidas/Five Ten trail cross mids. They'll work well with pants, probably look a bit Forrest Gump with shorts though.

Going to view a van Friday, i'll pull the trigger on it if it's as good in the flesh, then job interview Monday. Busy times!


I need a pair of these. Will be on the lookout for a deal at a shop where I can actually try them on.

Funny thing: I've been on flats for years. And 5.10's. But last year I got a new pair and they hurt my feet badly. And also had too much grip. So I rode all summer on Marks Work Wearhouse Ripzone kicks. I wore the 5.10's a couple of times, for park and shuttle rides with younger folk, but couldn't walk properly for a few days after.

They are the freerider pro model. I might just chuck them and get regular free rider (non pro) model.

The pedals are Chromag Contact pedals. Sooper grippy. Good enough for Brandon, good enough for me.

They got smaller. I had to 1/2 size up.

Freerider seems too flat sole ,skate shoe look to them. I’ve never wore a pair but it has steered me towards the impact low and impact high tops . I should order new set of the high tops for this season , slap a superfeet insole in and they last 4-5 seasons.

Let’s just be clear, lots of bike shoes give me a Forest gump vibe lol

i can see that, I have ankle issues which makes my arches pretty much non existent, always wearing flat soled shoes doesn't help it either, but I like the look so yolo

I perceive a disturbance in the force. Things are starting to swirl.

I've tried so many "MTB flat shoes" and I usually end up running vans halfcab pro's...

I did that for years. I’d put customers m plastic inserts for added stiffness. Lol


You try ride concepts yet? I love mine

I've been running FiveTen Freerider Contracts for awhile and they're comfortable on the bike... wouldn't want to walk more than a couple miles in them but they're fine on the bike.

The old school impacts were just all around comfortable.
