Great everyday and approach shoe
This is a great shoe, I use it to go to work everyday, and even though it looks like a delicate shoe, it has not worn out at all.
Very comfortable shoe although tending to fit relatively small (somewhere between your walking shoe and your climbing shoe). Though my walking shoe is size 8, I have to wear these on that same size with a thin sock, otherwise they won't fit comfortably. Great grip on the rock on the approach.
They only drawback I'd see is that they don't seem weatherproof at all, although I can't truly report on that, cause I haven't had the chance to test them in damp conditions yet.
True to 5.10's quality, I'd definitely recommend this one.
Great shoe so far.
For the record, this shoe is good for people with wide feet! I was worried because I have a wide foot, (almost 3 E), but it feels good.
Only weird thing is, the shoe does fit snug on the top of the foot, which, I'm thinking will loosen up over time.
True to other reviews, these shoes grip really well on rock, gravel, but are a little slippery on say, a smooth surface. I'm interested to see how they perform on Utah slickrock.
Overall, a great shoe!
San Juan mountain climb- no worries.
Used this shoe on a summit day of Vestal Peak- Wham Ridge. I decided to carry these in my summit bag as a backup to my boots. As we approached the summit rain made the going pretty slippery and I switched to the Guide Tennie. I had a much better grip on the wet rock, and with the wool socks I had on, my feet stayed comfortable in the very wet conditions. Bought this shoe after both my guides wore them in the Sawtooths.
Guide Tennie is cool!
I love these shoes. They are super grippy and very comfy. They seem quite sturdy. I expect them to last for a while, though the super sticky soles may wear a little more quickly than I want. I love the lacing to the toe. It makes the fit perfect! They look cool and feel great on my feet. I feel I can walk up walls with the super sticky soles!
Solid Approach shoe
Hadnt worn a pair of dedicated approach shoes since the original Five Ten Guide Tennies. Got a bit tires of sliding around in standard day hikers when scrambling around on my way to the boulders/routes. So I have to say that I havent been dissapointed, these shoes are super solid and secure for scrambling and can definitely handle low grade 5th Class climbing with ease.

This shoe is a great approach shoe. The traction on rock is great and its a very comfortable shoe for all day wear. It is a durable shoe that can take the abuse you throw at it from continuous days of wear. One thing to know about it is it has a marking sole so don't wear them on your wood floors!
Great Approach Shoe
I use this shoe when I go bouldering and warm up with it. I sized down 1/2 size to get it to fit more like a climbing shoe. This shoe will stick to rocks or anything you walk on as it has the stickest rubber.
these are GREAT!!
there really isn't much more to add. i got these while looking at other brands, and i haven't been disappointed. i'm wearing them right now, just as i've done since receiving them...i'll be getting a second pair soon!
classic awesome shoe
The best approach shoe I have owned. Its a classic. The shoe has been around for a long time and will probably stay around for a long time to come. Can't go wrong with this shoe.
Awesome traction shoe
Great hiking shoe but the knobs tend to wear out fast on bottom back and front of shoe
