Urban inspired, the Five Ten Sleuth DLX is designed to excel in any riding situation whilst being stylish enough for post-ride social outings.
Taking what Five Ten learned from the Danny Mac they developed a couple of years ago, the Sleuth DLX is a sort of “plus” version of the classic Sleuth shoe with some added cycling features such as opting to use sticky STEALTH® S1 outsoles for unbeatable grip and toe protection for trail hazards.
Whilst a capable mountain biking shoe, the Sleuth DLX includes an amount of inconspicuous reflective material which aids low light visibility for when riding after dark.
For 2020, the Sleuth DLX comes in two flavours, this PU Leather upper version and a Suede upper version, the PU Leather version will benefit from better durability is easier to take care of but also will be a bit more resistant to the elements.
This incarnation of the Sleuth is, in reality, more performance orientated than an out and out causal 'knock around the city' cycling shoe, equally at home on the streets as it is around a dry trail centre or park rides.

Five Ten Sizing Advice
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 Hellcat Pro 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.
