Five Ten designed the men's Stonelands VCS Climbing Shoe for those who aren’t mainstream climbers. Built on an all-new last, the Stonelands has a notoriously comfortable t that belies its inner strength, just like the climbing legends of the past and present. The split-grain leather upper conforms to the foot like a second skin. Inside is Five Ten’s secret performance weapon, our new Western Heel Cup and Midsole stiffner.
The Stonelands VCS has the inner strength of your highest performing sport or trad shoes but feels as comfortable as an all-day multi-pitch shoe. The new Five Ten last is designed to utilize the foot’s natural power for a notoriously comfortable fit. The shape and stiffer forefoot keeps you toes more flat so you can smear and jam cracks really well, but still provides a great platform for fantastic edging. The split-grain leather upper conforms to the foot like a second skin and has a thickly padded tongue. Hook and loop straps let you easily adjust for more comfort or power. See why Five Ten thinks your climbing shoes do not have to hurt to perform well.
Climbers have traditionally sacrificed comfort and packed their feet into toe-crushing, down-sized, painful shoes all in the name of greater performance. Thanks to a new innovative last, the Five Ten Stonelands VCS Climbing Shoe is able to provide a high level of performance by utilizing the natural and comfortable flat-toed position of the foot. So whether you're bagging towers in the southwest desert or putting in an all-day gym session, this is the ticket for pain-free performance.

These don't fit me quite as well as my Anasazi Blanco's. The heal is too loose if I fit it with my toes in anything but a completely torturous position. I let a friend use them and his feet fit much better than mine. The rubber and everything else on these is great. Toe position and edging, even smearing are all great. I wear size 11.5 street and bought size 11 Stonelands.
I am super impressed with the rubber on these shoes, it's very sticky and seems to be extremely durable! Easy to get on and off with the 'hook and loop' feature. I got a half size smaller then my normal street size and the fit is nice and tight. I love the velcro, so easy to take off your shoes between climbs.
