Look and feel great, let down by questionable grip and poor durability.


Initially these looked great. Super comfortable, lightweight but with decent toe protection, and a good balance of stiffness/flex.

Sadly the grip and general durability is a let down. At first these wouldn't stick to my pedals in cold winter in Derby, which made for a few fun moments in the air. After a week of riding they seemed to break in and grip, but that was short lived as the tread chewed out quickly.

The glue holding the sole to the upper also let go. I've been keeping these alive with shoe goo but 6 months later these are going to be replaced by some RC Livewires.

In contrast my last pair of FiveTen freeriders lasted nearly 2 years.

Bad Sole


Sole is starting to come away from shoe after about 5 rides

So far, so good!


I'm 4 rides into using my new Keegan shoes. They fit is so much better than my FiveTen Freeriders, which were like boast on my narrow feet. The FiveTens were so wide I had to buy 3mm orthotic foam (non-compressible) and install it to fill out the extra space. The other advantage of the Keegans is they have regular length laces, whereas the FiveTens had laces that needed to be cut down by more than 1ft. So straight out of the box the Keegans were ready to ride.

Comfort and support has been good. I like the armoured sole and I think this will hold up well and the toe bumper provides better protection. Sole grip is good, but I don't think the rubber is as grippy as the Five Tens (at least not yet). This could be either a plus or a minus. Some riders complain that FiveTens are so sticky they can't easily alter their foot position, but that's not an issue with the Keegans.

I'd certainly recommend giving these shoes a go if you have average feet. And they look cool too.

Meh! Ok shoes - just not for MTB


I bought these because the price of 5-10s is out of control. I was hoping to find a cheaper alternative. However, these were a little disappointing. Seem to be well made and are perfectly ok for walking, but the soles are too stiff for me and the lack of tread depth means they don't interface well with my pedal pins. Result - my feet keep bouncing through the rough stuff and I am continually repositioning my feet. Not confidence inspiring in the air either. Looks like it's the expensive brand for me...

Great shoes for new flat pedal riders


I bought these as my first flat pedal shoes after 10+ years clipped in. They have plenty of grip when I drop my heels but I can still wiggle my foot on the pedal if I need to adjust position which is important for a flat pedal learner like myself. The sole is stiff enough that I’ve had no aches or pains on long rides and they breathe better than I thought they would. Brilliant shoes especially for someone new to flat pedals.

Awesome shoes once you break them in. Grips well and good value for money as well.
