Christmas has come early at Go Outdoors with this superb deal on the Five Ten Sleuth DLX shoes by Adidas. As riders ourselves we like to especially recommend products we've used, and can recommend through our own riding experience, and I've compiled a list of awesome mountain biking themed ideas on our 2023 festive guide.

One Christmas deal I've already snapped up myself is on the Five Ten Sleuth DLX MTB shoes, I'm a huge fan of Five Tens as are most of the Bike Perfect crew with our Editor and flat pedal fan, Rich Owen, giving the Five Ten Freerider Pro top marks in his review.

Five Ten by Adidas makes some of the best MTB shoes around and we gave the brand's top-of-the-range Freerider Pro shoe five stars in our review. The Sleuth DLX shoes come with the same super sticky sole as the Freeriders for maximum flat pedal grip, but with a lighter construction that's ideal for dry trails, street or park riding. At Go Outdoors you need a membership card to benefit from this deal, and it costs £5, but you also get an extra 15% off when using code COLD15, which make these a better than half-price, absolute bargain. They are currently available in sizes 7-12.

I love the Sleuth DLX shoes because they have a supremely casual look, at home in the pub, post-ride coffee shop or being the coolest dad on the school run. Don't let the lifestyle-oriented vibe put you off these flat pedal beauties though because they have performed superbly well out on the trails, coping admirably with the winter slop on my local rides.

With this super discount at Go Outdoors, plus an additional 15% discount when you use the COLD15 code, it makes the final discount better than half-price, and I recommend you snap them up now, before they are gone, either as a superb Christmas gift for the rider in your life or even as a festive treat for yourself.

Why you should buy the Five Ten Sleuth DLX

The Five Ten Sleuth DLX MTB shoes provide class-leading grip and feature the brand's Stealth Phantom rubber on the sole along with a Micro-Dotty tread, the gum sole also makes these look pretty cool, much like Stan Smiths, another Adidas classic. The sole also has an internal EVA midsole that I've found gives just the right amount of pedaling stiffness and support. The upper features weather-resistant leather and the lace closure creates a superbly comfortable shoe with a secure fit. I've also liked the extra height on these around the ankle which gives that extra bit of protection.

If the Five Ten Sleuth DLX aren't for you then we also recommend the Five Ten Freerider Pro model, which also has a superb 50% discount at Evans Cycles. Our best mountain bike flat shoe guide has a huge selection from other big brands like Fox and Specialized.

While this offer is for the UK only, I've added our price checker below which will automatically give you the best price on the Adidas Five Ten range in your territory.
