    Five Ten Freerider advice please

    Just a very quick background... I am fairly new to riding after a 15 year break and have got some DMR V8 pedals and currently some DC Shoes. They are a bit slippy and the sole is getting torn apart!

    I ordered some impacts in the sale and not having researched them (impulse buy!) I didn't realise they were so bulky! The fit is ok, but just too bulky and heavy for me.

    I have now turned my head to the freeriders or freeriders VXi. How do these size up to the Impacts? I have seen a pair of VXi (2013 model) at half price, but they are a 7.5 rather than an 8.

    Sadly, no where near me sells these to try on, but also want a good deal!

    So whats peoples opinions on the difference between normal and VXi? Is it just the sole?

    There are width variations.
    Zappos does free return shipping. I've ordered two or three sizes and then send the ones that don't fit back.

    Freerider will be more like a skate shoe (Vans w/laces) yet the stiff sole and Stealth Rubber makum stick to flats like no other!!. They run tight, I had to get 1/2 size bigger than all my other shoes.
    And ditto with Zappos dot com, free shipping and fast too....

    I have three pairs and wear size 8 with a wide foot and usually have to get 1/2 bigger to accommodate my wide feet. The freeriders I have were a true size 8 and wide enough to accommodate my feet. Stick to the pedals like glue.

    ditto. freeriders rock! size 12 and mine felt slightly large if anything, but i'd still order that same size again so true enough for to me. and sticky sole is awesome. nothing sticks to plats like these ho's..

    i went a half size up and they fit. at my normal size they would have been too small.

    i ordered my Freeriders from Zappos and found them to fit true to size (9). I have fairly narrow feet except for my forefoot. When I'm not riding you'll most likely catch me wearing Sanuk Donnys.
