Sydney Retailer 5.10 Shoes

Hi Guys,

Am new to MTB and switching to platforms after some near misses on the clipless.

Having read a few reviews, I think I want to buy a pair of 5.10 MTB shoes.

Anyone know a Sydney store that stocks them? Would rather try them on for fit, rather than online.

Thanks, Damien

Not sure about local retailers, but you might want to check that you have the multi directional release cleats (if your using SPDs) and turn the spring pressure right down. I find with these setting I don't even have to think about unclipping, my foot just come off.

With the spring setting way low, you can always get out of the pedals in an emergency without thinking, which for me is more often than not.

Can't fault five 10s with a decent platform.
I find that they run true to size.
Good luck

Mine are half a size larger than I normally wear and are a snug fit in width. Best to try them on if you can find a shop which stocks them - and it would be nice to support the shop and buy them there also. I did buy mine second-hand off Ebay from someone who bought the wrong size but for the bargain price it was worth the chance.

I have 5.10s combined with Jetblack Superlights on both a dually and hardtail - they are a great combination and I never lose my footing regardless of how rough it gets even when pedalling.

The grip of the rubber is hard to beat on flats and climbing Sydney sandstone on hike a bikes. Climbing shoe stickability.

My last purchase was from TBSM, not sure about more local north side.

From memory their sizing is about the same as Vans.

I got some for my wife from northern beaches cycles at narrabeen they stock them

Thanks for the advice.

I will give TBSM a try. I'm a US13 with wide foot, so right on the limit of their sizing I think. they don't have the Freeride

I'd be happy to buy local but does seem tricky to get what you want, not as bad as dive gear though.

thanks, ds

Good to know!
