Two decades of legendary performance.

Five Ten has been making the Anasazi Moccasym Climbing Shoe nearly unchanged for the last two decades, and it's certainly not due to a lack of attention. The super soft midsole and narrow slip-on profile have made it the secret weapon of numerous top athletes when the task at hand involves jamming in a tips-only finger crack or maintaining a delicate toe-hook on overhung rock. Point being, a pair of Moccs belongs in every serious climber's bag of tricks.

  • Full grain leather uppers stretch out overtime for a custom fit
  • Slip-on design makes for easy on and off and creates a narrow foot profile
  • Soft fish hook midsole provides the required sensitivity for delicate smears and dime edges
  • Narrow and flat toe profile makes the shoe a go-to choice for hard crack climbs and difficult toe hooks
  • Stealth C4 rubber provides legendary traction on the every type of rock imaginable

Went the way of the Dodo

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8.5

I have had a moccasym in my shoe quiver since 2010 and have went through about a half dozen in this time. I was obsessed with the shoe, loved it to death and recommended it regularly. Then, while working as a climbing shoe sales associate (non-BC), a new batch of Adidas Moc's came in. I quickly put a ton of folks in them, only for them to all blow out in about 3 weeks of indoor gym use. Toes were literally poking through them after never even touching an actual rock. I contacted my rep who said they switched production to Chinese sourced leather and they were having production issues but the next batch would be better. I waited a while, received a new (although self-reduced) shipment in to see if the issues were corrected. Nope, same horrible Moc. I dumped the line and picked up the Unparallel UpMoc. The leather is about twice as thick as even the original, pre-adidas Moc, they are slightly less comfortable with the upper toe rubber, but the mid-sole outperforms the Moc. Sorry Adidas, you destroyed a legend. For what it's worth, I am a 10 or 10.5 street shoe, and I size to a 8.5 in both the Moc and UpMoc. This is for all day crack and occasional face climbing.

Incredibly Comfortable Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These things are amazing for multipitching. Great rubber and they stay comfortable for pitch after pitch. One of my favorite climbing shoes of all time.

How much did you downsize?

My Go To

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had so many pairs of these shoes over the years, I love them! They are comfortable enough to wear for a decent period of time and flexible enough to be used for anything you want. They are not aggressive for overhung stuff, but they are soft enough to bend to your needs (and it'll build a lot of foot strength). The newer versions have been ripping some around the ankle from pulling them off and on, but they're still perfectly functional.
The only issue I've found it that even if fit pretty tightly, they are not good for heel hooking, and honestly, I've found this can be worked around by pulling my legging down over my heel and the shoe on over that to make it less likely that the heel will slip off when I know I've got an important heel hook coming up.
I've worn through the leather faster than I've worn through the rubber and I've had them for 3+ years. They're awesome and I would recommend them to anyone!

Feels like comfort in climbing

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Most people think that you need to cut the circulation off your feet to climb. I bought these around the same size as my normal shoe and use them all the time. I'll admit they seemed to have stretched a bit, but it is nothing that socks can't solve! I wear these at the gym without any pain and still get it great grip!


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Initially, you'd think that some slip on climbing shoes would just pop right off your feet as soon as some weight is placed into the holds. Not these though. Five Ten has done a great job shaping the shoe to create little pockets that grip around your feet to keep the shoe securely secured to your foot. As well as using their Stealth C4 rubber that keeps the shoes securely secured to the holds! These are perfect gym/long climb shoes. As long as the shape fits your foot (which is always an issue with climbing shoes ¯\_(ツ)_/¯).

The Ultimate OG

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great fit for a moccasin, and perfect for anyone looking for a more comfortable gym shoe or do-it-all set of kicks. This shoe crack climbs exceptionally well if sized correctly, and when worn in smaller sizes has good edge sensitivity. Be prepared to work harder on anything overhanging with its flat sole, but hey, maybe that's part of the fun.

Friends have had them for 5+ months

    These shoes are still holding up in and out of the gym.. Quality, grip, & material!

    I wouldn't ever gift my friends shoes that I know would not hold up.
    Also true to size. 10.5 in street shoes translates to 10.5 in these.

    Quality concerns: Review #2

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been wearing the 5.10 Moccasyms for the past 25+ years. Probably have purchased 40+ pairs over the years. Never had a defective pair of climbing shoes.

    Similar to Albert H.

    My 5.10 Moccasyms have a tear in the leather just above the rubber above the big toe. I have been climbing in these at the gym for the past two months.

    Obviously horrified I have to find another model that works for me after all of these years!

    Quality concerns: Review #2


      I had no gripe against Five Ten. I used to love the mocc's. I had two pairs from a few years ago that lasted much longer than the pair I recently bought (post Adidas acquisition). These are made of a supple leather, so obviously they're not going to be a workhorse shoe, but the one's I most recently purchased (again, post Adidas acquisition), lasted 3 weeks before they began to tear. I hadn't taken them outdoors at all either. I had the same tear on the left shoe as a previous reviewer had (see his pic) -- right below where the elastic tongue meets the leather. Since the initial tear, the tear on the left shoe has grown over an inch long and I now need to wrap tape around my foot every time I put them on, otherwise the shoe is too loose. I'm avoiding Five Ten products going forward. Oh, and I'm also really bummed they changed the design/materials of the Guide Teenies. I've tried contacting Adidas Outdoor, but no luck yet.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Hands down the comfiest shoe I've climbed in. Besides heel hooks, their pretty versatile and can be used for pretty much any type of climbing, both at the gym and on the rocks. I'd recommend going just down a half size. I wear a street shoe 12 and after reading reviews I tried these on in 11 but my toes were way too crammed so I went with 11.5

      I don't wear anything else!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have bought so many pairs I can't count. I love them for all types of climbing personally they are super comfortable. If you heel hook a lot I wouldn't recommend.

      Your Feet Will Thank You

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I decided to surprise my boyfriend with these on his birthday after he talked about getting them for months.

      He had some trouble getting the right size, but ultimately settled on a full size up from his Scarpa Vapors (which is ~1 size down from his street shoe). He likes the slight extra room for climbing outside (natural swelling on the foot) and he found that after they're broken in, he doesn't think going down half a size would benefit him too much.

      These are his go to climbing shoes for bouldering and less steep routes, as well as most of the outdoor climbs we do. The flat profile forces him to focus on his footwork and toeing in correctly, and therefore improves his technique. He raves about how comfortable these are and also mentioned that he appreciates the downturn on his Vapors a lot more after wearing these for so long.

      Warning: These WILL turn your feet red! The dye in the leather bleeds as your feet sweats, however the dye washes right off.

      Great desert shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm on my 3rd or 4th pair of these. Some things have definitely changed.

      The rubber sole is now substantially thicker than it used to be. Probably doesn't matter if you just face climb in these, but it will affect how much of my foot will fit in #0.75 cracks for my foot size.

      They added an additional piece of material on the sides where the elastic meets the shoe. Likely to address the quality issue mentioned below.

      Out of the box fit has changed some as well. I've always bought a size 10 and my toes lie pretty flat in the shoe out of the gate. I wear a street shoe 9.5 or 10 depending on the brand. I'm shooting for room fit with my feet completely flat for desert climbing. This time my toes were really curved and a I freaked out a bit. After taking them out for a 1000 ft of mellow slab climbing/scrambling my feet are perfectly flat again.

      If you climb in the desert put barge cement on the front leather section over your toes to extend the life of your shoes. After a friend gave me this tip I have yet to blow through the leather. I typically now blow through the rubber on the bottom of the shoe under the ball of my foot.

      Quality issues..

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Leather tore near ankles within a month of purchasing... so not going to bother with resole like I normally would. Throwaway quality invades climbing? ..I hope no companies that make protection are ever bought by Adidas.

      Super comfortable though.

      Quality issues..

      I had the same issue one 1/3 of my recent Mocs. Toes blow out easily as well. I still use them for but read days but they are not reliable for gym climbing.

      The best all around shoe!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Definitely go down one whole size from your regular shoe size, they stretch ALOT! Dean Potter wore them so they must be good right? Great for long sustained multi pitch climbing for comfort in cracks. Not as strong for bouldering it needs to be a bit more aggressive. Good for beginners and for a reasonable price.

      Good for desert crack

        These shoes aren't necessarily a quiver killer of a shoe, but if you want one shoe for climbing in the desert it's this one. Id recommend sizing it so the toes lay flat . It'll turn the feet red the first couple of wears too

        Must have shoes for every climber

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This is my first choice for all my climbing except edging. I prefer these to the Hiangle or Miura XX/VS on anything requiring smears, toe jams, supple placements in pockets and other features, and even technical vert routes in the 5.11 and under range. I like how soft they are once they get truly broken in, they'll fold around the shape of your foot, or however much you can wedge and poke in some hold. Smeadging is a thing. I highly recommend them and would offer more than anything, they're just plain fun to climb in, they're super sticky and soft.

        Sizing- All 5.10 I've found to be my street shoe size or a half below. I'm a 10.5 street shoe, 42 in La Sportiva Miura, and I get 10.5's for a comfortable snug fit in both Hiangle and Mocc's, and 10 for a tighter 'performance' fit. I do not reccomend these to be fit overly tight, it would completely defeat the point, plus the leather is not durable enough to take major stretching during the on off process. Besides, they're not great edging shoes anyways, and your shoe won't stretch much if it fits well from the beginning, so don't go 1&1/2 sizes down like some people say. You'll just end up with a hole in your shoes.

        Oh and you may have to return one or more because of faulty leather. Mine that got returned looked really fuzzy compared to the good one

        Thanks for the great review Matthew!

        More quality concerns

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I climbed maybe 20 pitches in these shoes. A finger-sized hole has formed where the elastic meets the leather upper. From the outside of the shoe, the stitching that connects the two materials seems intact. Maybe the elastic wasn't positioned correctly before the stitches were placed. I didn't jam these shoes in any fist cracks - mostly face climbing and a couple hand cracks.

        Several online retailers listed reviews from the past year or so complaining about defective materials. Before buying the shoes, I emailed Five Ten (now Adidas Outdoor) asking if they've made changes to address these issues and did not receive a response.

        Aside from this, the shoes climb as well as everyone says. I wear a 10.5 in running shoes, a 41 in Muiras and Katakis (sized pretty tight for single pitch climbing), and I ordered these in a 9. They're as snug as single pitch shoes at first, but they do stretch quickly. I stopped using them when the hole developed, at which point my toes were still moderately knuckled, but I could keep them on for the better part of a gym session. With some more climbing I think they could have served as multipitch shoes. I did struggle to hold small edges on some routes where my other shoes inspired more confidence - but they were really small edges and most of the time these shoes felt great.

        As disappointed as I am, I will try to warranty the shoes and give them another shot. In the event that I just got a dud, I will update my review. Thanks

        How to Measure:
        Step 1:
        Place a piece of paper on a hard floor with one end against the wall. Place your foot on the piece of paper with your heel against the wall.
        Step 2:
        Mark the piece of paper where your toes end with a pencil for both feet.
        Step 3:
        Measure your marking from your heel to the longest toe for both feet. Take the highest value and compare to size chart.
