The Best Shoe

This is my 2nd pair of these shoes. After almost 3 years, the tread on the 1st pair is pretty low, so they have be delegated to yard work. These shoes really excel at everything. I use the for back packing (2-3 day trips with a 20-25 lbs pack), rock climbing approaches (Cannon, Mt. Willard, Gunks), riding my local trails on my ss mtb, trips to the store with my daughter and yes, yard work. I found that I have to order a 1/2 size larger than my street shoe (they feel too small lengthwise) but fit my wide foot well. I wish I could snug up the toe just a little bit more for scrambling routes, but that is a pretty minor concern for me. They are a little heavy, and feel a little bulky clipped to a climbing harness. But they provide better traction and foot support thatn my Old Vasque Sundowners. I should really buy a couple more pairs of these in case 5.10 stops making them.

Great Guide Shoe!

I seconded a 5.8 trad climb yesterday in these as a warm up, which included a foot jam in a 5 inch crack. These shoes held up admirably, and I didn't feel the need to change into my rock shoes (which I had clipped to my harness just in case).

I've also been hiking a lot in these since I got them a few weeks ago. My ankles roll easily, and I'm generally not ok with non-hightop shoes, but these have been working out great. I did have one slight ankle roll on one hike in these, but I wasn't paying attention to my foot work, and I haven't had a problem since. I've been very happy with the heel cage.

I also hiked in some pretty wet conditions across bare trap rock and have done several scrambles in such conditions in these, and they have held up great. The rubber sticks to wet rock pretty darned perfectly.

Great for hiking the Whites

A recent hike had a lot of wet rocks with a layer of algae for good measure. My regular hiking boots have Vibram soles which are great for most conditions, except wet slimy rocks, which made for some 'interesting' moments. I don't like worrying about foot placement so the next day I went to my local EMS. I discussed my traction concerns with the Shoe Guru who pointed me to the Camp Fours. Sold! I've been on three hikes since purchasing the shoes and what a difference. They stick to rock, regardless of wet, dry or slimy, like crazy. It's almost magical. They aren't a one trick pony. They're beefy enough to provide support for hiking, scrambling and everything in between while being very comfortable. The one downside has already been mentioned by others; they do run on the small side. I had to go up a half size.

A great trail shoe!

I was looking to replace my favorite GTX low hiker. I had a pair of Teva's that gripped better than any other I have tried. I have read about the 5/10's and decided to give them a try.
Recently we went to Bar Harbor and did quite a few hikes including wet granite slabs, shore rock hopping, small stream and muddy trails. Even tho they are not GTX- I splashed thru several puddles and with my Smart Wool's my feet were nice and dry. They are excellent on wet granite and had no slips. I love the traction.
They are pricey- but I have several hiking shoes and with the Vibram soles had too many slips for my comfort, so I will pay for confidence on traction.

Excellent - Perfect grip and Fit

I have been wearing these for years. Have tried other shoes and keep coming back. The grip, stability and fit are better than anything else out there.

Amazing Grip - the sole wears quicker than others but that is a GOOD thing - it means you get grip in all conditions.

Sizing - they are a lower volume shoe but again a good thing as this offers great terrain feel and helps with foot placement. This is an approach shoe so it has been designed for technical terrain.

The durability has been great. Excellent construction and materials. I have abused these for years and they are still holding together.

Favorite shoes, hands down!

I've had these shoes for 6 months now and you can't beat the traction. I've heard the rubber dosen't last long but I haven't seen any abnormal wear. 5.10 uses the same rubber on these as they do on their climbing shoes, and if you know climbing shoes than you already know not to expect them to last as long as your trail runners! So just keep in mind your giving up some durability (in rubber only) to get traction you can't find in a hiker or trail runner. I use the Camp Four's for all my hiking needs as well as mountian biking and everyday use.

I went up a half size than I measured, but I gather that is not uncommon.

The most surprising thing about these hikers is their grip. They really shine there.

I have a sensitive instep, and most hiking shoes when snugged down a little too much, cause me some discomfort - gee I shouldn't do that! - these are no exception there. But when I get them right, I can wear them all day.

I basically love 'em, I just wish they were waterproof. Maybe a future model if these sell!

Love the traction

I wear these backpacking and hiking in places like the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Cedar Mesa and rocky trails in Colorado - anywhere I'm on rock, wet or dry. With other brands I have found their soles slicker than snot on most wet rock. These stick. My first pair were used in Scotland where the rock is always wet. No slips.
I have wide feet so wider widths would be appreciated. I have to wear pretty skimpy socks at size 13 for these to be comfortable.
Don't know how they would fare in mud.

Great shoe!

This is my second pair of Camp 4's - the first pair lasted two years. Although to be fair I should have replaced them at the 18 month stage. I've worn these daily, trail running (okay, more like trail plodding - I'm not much of a runner), at work on casual days, hiking, biking, on walks to the beach, on the beach (in winter) and general around the house wear. Great, comfortable shoes!

Great scrambling shoe!

I used this shoe as my summer climbing/scrambling shoe in Colorado and the Tetons as well as my everyday/work shoe. This shoe has excellent traction on rock and is very comfortable. Never had any issues with durability as my first pair lasted about 1.5 years (finally wore out the sole). Just ordered my second pair!

Good hiker

Initial impression was good, nice looking shoes. Traction is awesome, stealth rubber really works. Comfortable in long walks, not as good as Merrel's I've used, but good. I must say I really liked these shoes until they started to deteriorate really fast (around the 6 month mark). First, the leather started to un-sew, then the foam part of the sole started to separate in the front. Other thing is no water proofing and when they get wet, they take a lot to dry, more that average compared to my other shoes, not an issue if you live in dryer climates. Maybe it's an epidemic, but some shoes these days lack durability. I've had Keens that while are great and comfortable, the sole unglued in a few months. If you need grip, these sure deliver!
Rigel at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 07/07/2011

Great shoe while it lasts.

I wore these shoes for about 8 months, and during this time they offered great traction and were surprisingly good at keeping my feet dry. However after 6 months the internal lining came un-stitched and at the eight month mark the sole came unglued, rendering the shoes useless. I tried to repair them with epoxy, but that made walking uncomfortable so I had to get rid of them.

Great shoes, but don't expect them to stay in one piece for over a year if you wear them often.
