    Sizing Of Five Ten Shoes

    I am interested in purchasing a pair of five ten shoes, specifically
    the Sam Hill model. How does the sizing on Five Ten shoes run?
    Are they true to size, fit smaller or bigger? Tight, Same as street
    shoe, etc?
    Purchasing online and do not want to have to exchange them
    if possible.
    Any help/comments are appreciated. Thanks

    Shoes rarely match up to measuring standards.

    My Giro clipless shoes are 46 EU...

    My 5-10 Freeriders are 47 EU...

    The Freeriders are a snug fit... so are my Giros.

    Truth can be elusive, and a single number (or a number and letter) can't adequately characterize all the variables in shoe fit, especially with the stiff plastic shoes that don't break in and mold to the foot like leather can. Flat pedal shoes are often better in this regard as they can be a bit roomier and are usually made from more flexible and yielding materials. (5-10 Kestrels don't fall into this category). That said, 45 Shimano, Bontrager, and 5-10 all seem to work for me.
    Do the math.

    You'll have to try them on. I'm between sizes on Freeriders (both new and old version), but I just got some Kestrels and they fit like a glove.

    I wear size 11 street shoes and my Freerider VXI shoes in size 11 fit fine.
    Life is short - enjoy the ride!

    I just bought a pair of 5.10 Impact VXI and had the same question, as all my 5.10s vary so much.

    I take EU44 in street shoes. My (2014) 5.10 Freeriders are perfect in 43, so when I bought a pair of Freerider Elements VXI (2015?) in 43 I thought I'd be fine - but they are slightly too small. My Maltese Falcons (2014) fit great, but are in size 45!

    In the end I went for my street size for the new Impact VXI's and it worked out perfectly, maybe I just got lucky...

    Your mileage may vary.

    I just got a pair of Freeriders. I really only had a pair of Nike Zoom Pegasus 33's in a 12.5 to go off of and compare, so that's what I did. They had a tiny bit of room in the toes, so since Five Ten doesn't make a 12.5 I decided to go with a 12. They fit great.

    After they dried out. I think they might have been thrown overboard on the way over here (S. Korea), because the entire box was soaked when I got it. Shoes are fine though!

    Four of five pairs of 5-10s that I own are true to size. I had a pair of their more casual shoes --dirtbags or something like that --which run slightly large by me assessment.

    In my experience, they run small. All 4 pairs I've ever had, I had to go a half size up. I found the toe box to be narrow.

    From my experience true to size length wise.

    They only come in one width, so that is little hit or miss. I find them a tad wide for my foot shape.

    I wear a 13 in 80% of my shoes. The 5.10 Freeride in a 13 is generous. Very roomy.

    Tl;Dr 6pm.com has or used to have free returns. Just buy some, try them on, and return them if they don't fit.
