WIN Free FiveTen Shoes From Chain Reaction

by 121

Fancy a pair of free FiveTens?

Forum partners Chain Reaction have a giveaway exclusively for our members (free and full). And if your existing shoes are looking a little worse for wear then your chances of bagging a pair just went right up. Here’s what the Chain Reaction folks have to say to you..

This time of year is about tweaking our bike a bit differently, carrying out a few fixes after all the
summer riding, and preparing the bike for harsher weather. It also means swapping out some of our gear for wetter months. And a big part of that is our shoes.

After all those big summer rides, we can find our soles have taken a beating, the upper is starting to
show signs of wear, and… we all know about the smell.

Anyway, the good news is, we’ve got loads of the latest shoes from adidas FiveTen, and we want to
give them away to you guys at Singletrack. We don’t have infinite pairs, so we want to give them to the most deserving.

All we want you to do is post a pic of your knackered kicks on this thread – the more beat up the
better. Those with the scruffiest shoes will get a pair of free and fresh FiveTens from us.

Alright then – shows us your shoes…

Remember, full members can upload images directly to the forum from their devices. Free members will need to upload images to a hosting service and then link to that image.

    I would show you my shoes.  But sadly, I broke the cleats on the bottom of my 8 year old pair of shoes a few weeks ago.  So they went in the bin.  I guess I can post up a photo of the space on the shelf where they used to be…

    Good luck everyone!

    Dammit, I just threw out my ‘I can see your socks in those’ MO89’s…

    I’m the same…the uppers appeared to be in good order, but the lacing system and ratchet system only had 2 points where they worked – undone or right-tight, the soles were almost smooth and one cleat didn’t actually disengage as it rotated on the sole – so the shoe stayed connected to the bike!

    Got them replaced but the previous pair was binned…

    Timely as mine are knackered, holes in both soles from the pins and dropping my ankles (but does help with letting the water out…), the outer layer is flaking off all round and the insoles have no support left in them!

    Cue loads of folk digging out a knackered old pair they just haven’t got round to chucking even though they have 3 pairs of brand new ones they just picked up in the Evans sale….

    I’m letting my son use my trailcross at the moment, as he’d grown out of his. I’m hoping he doesn’t stay a size 9 for very long so I can have them back. Unitl then I’m just using a pair of Etnies cos I’m skint*…..

    I think I can hear the tiny violin in the back ground….😉

    *I’m really not in the big scheme of things, but can’t justify spending money on new bike shoes.

    Almost borked but still rolling… uppers are reasonable but pedal pin rash on the toes does sting…

    Just threw out my old pair, those pictures are my best ones! The other pair are just as bad but still covered in mud (Dyfi slop sets like concrete!) and I really can’t be bothered to wash them. Would have bought some in the Evans sale but A: I’m currently unemployed and watching the pennies and B: I’ll never give any of my money to Mike Ashley if I can possibly avoid it.

    Is it obvious how I position my feet on the pedals?

    I’ve actually worn a hole right through the outer sole 🙂

    @reluctantjumper – Sorry, I was only taking the piss, although the bit about my lad wearing my Trailcross and not wanting to spend money on new shoes is true.

    Falling apart but still in regular use for commuting.

    They have become more leaky breathable as the years have passed. IMG20231004161018

    I binned my 5-10 Minnar SPDs only a few weeks ago because the shank was broken and the clip came off. 😥

    Does “old” earn any points? I’m still using my Shimano MX-70’s that I bought back in the ‘90’s…

    @ads678 – no offence taken, actually chuckled at your comment as I had the same thought!

    These are my son’s Adidas Stan Smith’s, which have been his all purpose bike park/bmx and skate shoe for far, far too long. Although they are now exceptionally breathable, what with the extra holes, it wouldn’t be wise to actually breathe in their vicinity. In this case, some new shoes might genuinely save lives and significant decontamination expense.

    Can anybody explain why when cleats get really worn they become like death traps . .? Surely the more worn the looser they should be ? 🤔

    My mate who owns a shoe repair shop has stuck these back together a few times, haven’t got the nerve to go back any more and don’t think it’s worth investing in a pair of new insoles 🙄

    I thought I’d have this sewn up (no pun intended) but looking down the thread (same), these might have a few more years in them. Still…

    I don’t have any “proper” riding shoes at the minute since going back to flats, just wearing my old normal shoes. Yes they let in a lot of water 😅

    Bob Ross-esque happy little shoes, well they’re grippy although the pins do leave marks on my feet.

    Tough love!

    Here are mine: bulletproof and still going strong after 6 or 7 years. They’ve had a bit of a break recently (and laces washed) as I’m trying clipped for the year on the MTB as a 2023 resolution)
