We’re big fans of the Adidas/Five Ten Freerider and Freerider Pro shoes—I actually have a big roundup in the works, pitting them against six other popular flat pedal shoes; stay tuned for that. Five Ten recently released versions of two shoes in the Freerider lineup, in both men’s and women’s sizes, that are constructed from PrimeBlue fabric, a high-performance recycled material made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. Half of the upper is made of a textile that contains 75% PrimeBlue yarn, an upcycled material that consists of plastic waste harvested from beaches and shorelines before it can pollute the ocean. The shoes contain no virgin polyester, which is pretty impressive.
The Five Ten Freerider Pro PrimeBlue is available in men’s sizes 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, and 13 in two colors for $150, and women’s 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, and 11 for the same price (starting March 22nd). The regular Freerider comes in all the same sizes for $100.
