The new Five Ten Freerider PrimeBlue is the classic Freerider but constructed partly using PrimeBlue, a material created using upcycled Parley Ocean Plastic™ recovered from beaches and other costal environments which is both as durable as those used for the regular Freerider but also environmentally friendly.
Asides from the new PrimeBlue materials, the Freerider PrimeBlue is still a BMX inspired mountain biking shoe at heart, designed to make the transition between downhill to trail centre rides.
With its comfortable fit, breathable action leather and mesh upper, supportive midsole and high-friction STEALTH® Freerider Dotty tread outsole combine to make this your do everything, everyday shoe.
STEALTH® S1™ outsoles are without a doubt the preferred compound for hiking and mountain biking shoes thanks to its unique capacity to absorb far more shock than traditional rubber outsoles whilst its high friction properties offer a balance between grip and durability which makes the S1™ compound highly versatile.
The Freerider PrimeBlue is an ideal all-round model, ideal for aggressive all-mountain riding, the Freerider PrimeBluer, with STEALTH® S1™ has excellent cushioning, shock absorption and durability.
- STEALTH® S1™ dotty rubber outsole for unbeatable grip
- Cup Sole for uncompromised durability
- Classic Dotty Pattern
PrimeBlue is a high-performance recycled material made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic™ which is created using upcycled plastic waste such as PET bottles and packaging, intercepted on remote islands, beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing it from polluting our oceans which inevitably it would do so without such intervention.
adidas Five Ten is using the material in leu of virgin plastics which would otherwise be used in the manufacture of its products.
You can learn more about the Parley project by visiting their website or support them by choosing this or other Five Ten models constructed using PrimeBlue materials.
Five Ten Size Guide
For tight fit, go one size down.
For a loose fit, go one size up.
The sizing for Five Ten shoes has shifted over the past few years, historically the shoes were famous for being quite roomy so riders would often size down. However, the later models such as anything with Pro in the name feature a more athletic, a narrower, closer fit for performance.
We'd recommend you follow the sizing advice below, testing a range of models in the office (a member of staff, typically wears a UK 10/Euro 44 and a 280mm foot length) always opted for UK 9.5 with the exception for the Freerider Pro, Impact Pro and Trailcross ranges for which he sized up to a UK 10.
- Place a piece of paper on a hard floor with one end of the wall, stand on the piece of paper (wearing socks) with the heel slightly touching the wall.
- Mark the end of your longest toe with a pencil for both feet, it's easier if you let someone help you with this.
- Measure your marking from the wall (heel) to the longest toe for both feet, take the larger of the foot lengths and compare it with the sizing chart above to work out your ideal Five Ten shoe size.
