Five Ten Danny Macaskill Freeride shoes Review

FiveTen Freeride Danny Macaskill  shoe Review

Heres my shot at a review for the Macasskill biking shoe. For anyone thats ridden with me will know im a flat peddle boy, and have over the years tried lots of pair of shoe to find what works for me with mixed success. But after finding five tens iv become a avid supporter of this brand finding that the stealth rubber soles sticks to those pedal better than anything else iv ever tried. The most popular one are the low rise but the big problem i had with these was the silly material eye loops that in short space of time would snap meaning having to have a cobbler punch some metal eyelets in, that and the fact they look like frankenstins monsters tennis shoes. The old freerides were too thin of sole and not a much protection for the toes, both of these have been addressed in this model, but still give you enough feel from pedals as some shoes can dumb it down like wearing really thick glove can from the bars, i also think these look pretty dame cool.
The down side of these are the fact you only have to look at a puddle for them to be wet though, and although  a super flat sole offers the max grip for pedals it means if you do have to push up in sloppy mud you end sliding back as quick as your heading up, but on rock they do stick very nicely.
In my opinion after riding these for every thing from Xc to Down hill id buy these again before anything else out there at the mo, which in my opinion is the best recommendation you could give.
