If i was riding freeride stuff, i'd just get some vans. They have good grip. There's hardly any freeride stuff where i'm at, so i ride DH in 510's. I don't know if you need that kind of grip with freeriding though.
I've never felt a pair of Vans or any other skate shoe grip like these. No contest... I can wear them all day and go for a ride after work without needing another pair of kicks... Beware though, they say the sole is non-marking on the Freeriders, but if you kick your foot hard enough they will.
I haven't tried the Ba5ic's... Their sole is red. They might not mark...
The Vans are freaking sweat. They are slightly more stiff than a standard skate shoe but, you won't notice it after a ride or two. I have been wearing them on C/B Mallet 1's now for a month and have an easy time getting in and out of them.
