Uniquely Shaped Feet Love these Shoes!
Wish I could afford 20 pairs to last a life time; due to the difficulty of finding proper fitted footwear for my delicately shaped/somewhat narrow feet with the big toes being abnormally longest of the toes on my feet.
Great quality for the price I feel in spite of the minor flaws: Takes a little time to lace on and off... But, I find that adds to the benefiting ease of adjustability to acquire proper fit & comfort anyway.
Please keep this Nicely Designed entry-level Model Stealth C4: Coyote Lace-Up Climbing Shoes by Five Ten around forever!
Compliments to the Designers. My Feet Happily Thank You! Look forward to stocking up and sharing the Love!
Great for a new climber.
If you're new to climbing you can't beat this for a lace up shoe. It's comfortable enough to wear around the climbing gym all day long and only takes a few sessions to fully break in. Sizes ran a little big as I wear a 11.5 in most shoes and a 11.0 in this shoe. I found it's great for general bouldering and for climbing less difficult routes. A great shoe at a great price for a beginner climber. The only negative is that it's not a very stiff shoe, but as a beginner it shouldn't make a difference.
Great rock shoe for the money!
I own this shoe as well as my Evolv Shaman shoe. Honestly, don't let the price of THIS shoe fool you! I love mine! They work extremely well for me not only indoors, but outdoors on steep rock, slabs, etc. These shoes smear very well, you can get the toes IN well due to the nice pointed toe design and the rubber is quite sticky! I climb just as well with these shoes as my $150 Shaman's! Buy them I don't think you can go wrong honestly! I love mine - they work so well for me!
Excellent beginner shoe
This is an excellent beginner shoe, that has no stretching at all. The sizing was spot on with my street shoes, and the width worked very well for my narrower-than-average foot. I've climbed on these for about 2 times a week for 6 months and I would say they are a little over half worn out. The down side to these shoes is that my ability has quickly outpaced what my shoes can do. They are excellent for learning the sport but will probably need to be replaced before they wear out.
Overall a good beginner shoe
A good shoe overall, comfortable, easily adjustable, good quality for the price. Rubber cracks and splits after a few months(depending on how much you climb). I have 2 other friends who own this shoe, all have the same problem, but shoe holds up after re-soling fairly well. The rest of the shoe holds up well and breaks in nicely. Not the best for long outdoor climbs, but you can make it work. I would recommend it to a beginner or intermediate climber looking for a mid-level quality shoe without spending too much.
Great beginner shoe
I bought these when i first started climbing and they have served me well for the past nine months even though they got pretty stretched out by summer. I use these to warm up at the gym or on long climbs outside. super comfortable and they smear really well on limestone, even on plastic in the gym where my 5.10 team can't hold the smear these kick butt! i recommend you buy at least a full size smaller than your shoe size.
Coyote Five Ten Lace-Up Climbing Shoes
I ordered these and had to return them as they were just too small. The next size I received, while still tight and small was workable (I figured they would stretch a little). My toes are still curling a little but they seem to do the job.
I ordered them as they were widely advertised as a good model for beginners. They seem to be fitting that bill. Just be sure to try a half / full size larger.
Great Starter Shoes
Started taking rock climbing seriously, decided to go for the entry-level shoe.
Climbed four or five times indoors with these. They were a bit uncomfortable at first, but my feet are now getting used to them - and they are getting used to my feet.
The only con I have is that taking them off and putting them on requires more time than velcro shoes. My next pair will mos def be velcro.
Good shoe for beginners
I am into my third year of climbing, so I am not a beginner but I bought these shoes again when my first pair wore out. I like the fit, the stickiness, and the comfort. I tried on several sizes and found that my street shoe size worked best for me. Other 5-10 shoes didn't have the same fit at that size, tho.
These shoes are bomber!
These shoes are great and very comfortable. I have used them for several months indoor and outdoor. Excellent on granite and most outdoor surfaces. Very good in the gym except for smearing on smooth walls, especially in humid conditions. Note that my skill level currently tops out at 5.7 so these may work fine for climber with better technical skill.
