Grandstone Climbing Shoe

Sit down and listen up kiddies because the Five Ten Grandstone Climbing Shoe has some trad glory stories to tell. Don't let its demeanor of age and wisdom fool you; the Gladstone brings the modern edge with an uber-sticky Stealth C4 rubber outsole and a supportive midsole, which conspire to make it the stiffest shoe in Five Ten's line. Its high-top microfiber upper protects your ankles during puzzling moves, so lace up, rack up the pro, and put some artistry in motion on your next trad project.

  • Five Ten's grand climbing shoe for trad, multi-pitch, and big wall
  • Stealth C4 rubber sole with sharpened edges for technical precision
  • Microfiber upper minimizes stretch and gives out-of-box comfort
  • Stiff midsole ensures all-day support on long, vertical walls

Just lovely!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Looooove these shoes. Basically the 5.10 equivalent to TC pros. Ankle support is wonderful. Great trad shoe. Me and my climbing partner have them

Trad Shoes from Heaven

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

I bought these solely for long days in the alpine & crack climbing. I have only used them a handful of times, but so far I absolutely love them. I wear a size 10-10.5 street shoe and the size 10 works great- definitely snug but has broken in nicely. The sole is pretty stiff, so they are super comfortable to crack climb in. Due to the stickiness of the rubber, these also perform well on slab; although any really challenging slab climbs definitely need a softer sole. I would hands down recommend this shoe for anyone that spends a lot of time climbing outside. Also, it's pretty cool having different shoes when you, your buddy, his gf, her cousin, and pretty much everybody else are wearing TC pros. I think I am sold on 5.10 climbing shoes.

Dime Edge and Timeless

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer


Very stoked on the update to a legacy model from 5.10. I've been climbing in a myriad of stiffer trad climbing shoes for years and have never really found a pair that has felt perfect for the type of climbing i most enjoy. Alas, the grandstone.

Impressions after roughly 30 pitches on mostly granite and sandstone-
1. They are quite comfortable. The toebox is mindful for all day trad climbing, but not loose or baggy. They actually feel quite precise in the toe box and the rubber on the upper keeps things tidy both from a structural standpoint as well as a feel in cracks. They aren't as flat in the toebox as a slipper, but they perform super well in both straight in cracks as well as pin scar pods/flares etc.
2. They are stiff but not overly damp/dead feeling. They edge on a dime but can also smear, or be precise on small footholds. The profile of the shoe is actually a bit down turned - fresh out the box. But they fit pretty flat. It sort of feels a little like camber in a ski and gives some feedback when pressing into the shoe. I'm sure it will wear out, but so far so good.

3. The lacing system is great! when i first got them - I am usually a 9.5 (9.35 really) and downsized to a 9 - I started with the laces not going through the last eyelet. I was able to break the shoes in with minimal discomfort, and now I can lace them all the way up and they are perfect. Great feel on slabs too.
