Five Ten recognizes that you're as committed to climbing as the next woman, but that doesn't mean you want to break the bank on shoes. That's one of the reasons it introduced the new Women's Rogue Lace-Up Climbing Shoes. Built with the same fit as the low-volume Anasazi, these shoes will provide all-day comfort thanks to their full-leather uppers and lace-up closures, which allow for the most adjustable, comfortable fit possible. Plus, tried and true Stealth C4 rubber outsoles ensure that you have some of the stickiest rubber ever made gracing the bottom of your feet.
Creeping up the slab.
I've liked this shoe a lot, for multipitches. I sized up, got the 9.5 even though I'm a size 9.0, and they fit perfectly after a pitch or two.
But, I'm not sure how much I like the rubber in the hot slab. The rubber slipped after a couple hours in the sun and I couldn't smear at all. I really needed my feet, so that was a bummer.
Not giving up on them yet. I will definitely take them out a lot more this season and wait and see if it was just me, or if the rubber gives out in our desert sun.
This is my first pair of climbing shoes and so far I love them. Based on the reviews, I decided to order two sizes and return the one that didn't fit. I wear an 8.5 street shoe, so I ordered one in 8.5 and 9.5. I went with the 9.5 and they are very comfortable. Snug AF, but they really made a huge difference in what grade route I was actually able to climb. The only problem I have is sometimes landing in them after I downclimb from a bouldering route, my toes get kinda jammed at the tip. But I can keep them on for a while and feel pretty good in them. I climbed my first 5.10a right after I bought them (I'd tried to climb it with the shitty rental shoes at my gym but I couldn't keep my feet on the smaller holds, but the Stealth C4 rubber on these soles really sticks to the wall).
Anyway, I love them, I highly recommend these for a first beginner pair. Just go way bigger than you think you should, they run suuuuuper small.
I've had these shoes for about six months, pitting them against everything from crack climbing granite to sharp limestone. They hold up remarkably well, except that no matter what size I buy, they kill my feet. Putting them on when its any other temperature above or under 55 is a five minute ouch fest. Definitely could be up to multi pitches if you can actually find a size that fits. I love the grip they give, so while I'm waiting for them to loosen or my feet to slowly morph, it seems worth it.
After talking to a couple people at my gym and someone from Backcountry, I ordered 2 pairs of these shoes to try on, in my regular street shoe sizes as advised (I wear a 7.5 or 8). They look like they're for a small child and even the larger of the two had my toes completely curled under. I know a lot of people say you should buy your climbing shoes super small and tight like that, especially with unlined suede as it stretches over time, but this was a ridiculous length issue, and I can't imagine the rubber is going to stretch. It says right on the box, DON'T BUY YOUR SHOES TOO SMALL, and describes how to tell if they fit correctly or not. I'm returning both pairs and will reorder as they're nice and soft and I like the looks of them, but I'm going to try a 9 or 9.5 and possibly even a 10, which is two full sizes above the largest shoe in my closet. Weird. Should probably mention that I wear an 8 in the rental shoes at my gym, which are also 5.10 brand but a different model with Velcro. Sizing seems to be really inconsistent.
