 Bought these while out in NZ when my 5tens died. A little disappointed really. The sole is supposedly (and looks) the same as five tens but it feels less sticky and doesn't grip to pedals anywhere near as well as my freeriders did. They felt very wooden at the start and while they improved with wear they still feel a little disconnected. Despite seeming more durable and stiff the sole wears at a very similar rate to 5tens. The uppers look like they may be a little water resistant but aren't, and they cost more. I'll be going back to 5tens when they've totally worn through. On the plus, they look good. Edit - also a lace broke after only a few weeks, which is no biggie but a little annoying.

 Those look nice, I'd definitely consider them over 5:10s. Wonder how the pricing will translate over here, those Hellions are $130 which should translate to about £105, but I'd be surprised if we get them for less than £125.

 They look pretty much exactly like my old Five 10 freeriders

 Are these linked to the old Teva flat pedal shoes in some way?
