Five Ten Camp Four Reviews:


comfortable, supportive and sticky

i'll start with the only negative thing i have to say about the Camp Four: it's not waterproof, but neither does it claim to be. The Camp Four's big brother, the FiveTen Exum, is, but i much prefer the low-top to the mid. Afterall, i was looking for a lightish-weight, summer hiking shoe. i'm just not sure why they couldn't add a waterproof layer into the Camp Four. Thats the only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5.

The benefits outweigh that slight annoyance by a lot, however. The shoe is extremely comfortable and fits like a glove. the full-foot lacing is glorious for tightening down the Camp Four to an almost climbing shoe fit, for when you really need to buckle down and get serious. and 5.10's rubber continues to amaze me by its ability to stick to things that normal shoes simply laugh at; mossy rocks, wet roots and logs, even the leaf-over-mud sides of ravines seem to turn to sandpaper under these things. i don't exaggerate. the fit, the comfort and the rubber all add to the feelings of security and stability that this solidly constructed shoe engenders. 5.10 claims that the external heel cup will provide enough support for heavy, long distance hikes. i've done the long distance thing with them but not the heavy. still i have to say, it really feels like they are much more supportive than other low-tops and a million times more comfortable than mids.

after owning a pair of 5.10 climbing shoes, i was so impressed by the construction, look and feel that i decided to go to 5.10 for some hikers too. im very impressed and if they last as long as they look like they will, i'll be coming back to 5.10 for more. its the type of quality product that breeds customer loyalty.

Sweet shoes!

I bought a pair of these in New Zealand for hiking, backpacking, packrafting...and everyday use. They really caught my eye because it looked like they were relatively light, fit really well, and WERE NOT "waterproof". Some other reviewers marked them down on this but I find it a plus. They drain water really well and dry out quick, which is sweet if you're alternating between paddling and hiking, or fording anything more than shin-deep. I always bought "waterproof" hiking boots in the past but face it, if you go through anything deep they're going to get soaked and then take FOREVER to dry because they are "waterproof".

I used them for backpacking even with a big pack and found them supportive enough for me. They grip everything too, it's amazing. I never thought I'd find shoes I liked this much. My left one wore through on the outside edge but for what I put them through I can't believe they stayed intact so long anyway and it won't stop me from buying another pair.

Light weight wonder

I recently put this shoe to the test to see how I would like it before I climbed in the Tetons or on Half Dome. I made a fast accent, with a pack, of Mt. Olympus, in SLC, UT. The climb is steep with mixed terrain. I loved the shoe. Its very light weight, stiff, and stable on the accent. It has great arch support that takes some getting used to. You can't find a better shoe for the traction. It is much stiffer than a trail runner shoe. However, on the decent I was running most the way and felt it would be nice if I could have secured the shoe tighter at the ankle with another eyelet. I did get hot souls on the decent (no blisters), but it was my first time wearing them.

Best ever Five Ten "approach"- Camp Four

Best out of 5 previous Five Ten styles I've used. Comfortable and ready to go, right out of the box. The Stealth sole of former Five Ten Approach models have always given my wife and I a great feeling of confidence on difficult slick rock terrain, but the Camp Four sole's grip so tenaciously, we have sometimes risked becoming over-confident. I have not experienced the shoes leaving any marks on floor tile, cement decks, etc. Overlapping peeling back of soles (of several former styles) is a thing of the past, with not a hint of this happening after many, many miles.
Even though the Camp Four is designated a "man's" model, I bought my wife a size, which fit well, and she is just as pleased with our best hiking shoes yet!

Comfort + Versatility + Durability

I love these shoes! I am on at least my 4th pair and they are pretty much all i wear hiking, scrambling, around time, and even to the office. They are far and away THE most comfortable hiker/cross-trainer/trekking shoes I've ever had. When i completely wear through the soles of one pair (which takes a few years of constant use) i just buy another pair. I even have my adult son hooked on them, and i think he's on his third pair! For the price, by far and away the best shoe on the market!!

Very good but needs one change

I recently spent 4 days hiking with the Camp Four in a variety of terrains in Shenandoah National Park, VA. I found the shoe to be very supportive and well designed, and outstanding for trail hiking. Unfortunately the all-leather uppers do not breath well and are warm in summery weather. The shoe needs to be equipped with an upper that would combine both leather and breathable mesh before I can give it 5 stars. I also found the shoe runs a half size small, so purchase a half size up from your usual size.

Would definitely buy again

I've used and abused these shoes for over 3 years now and they've held up great. Excellent for approaches, scrambling, easy terrain and really for all around use. They are a bit bulky for bringing on multi-pitch routes although you'll be glad to have them for the descent if you do bring them along.

After 3 years they are showing wear in line with what I would expect but overall are still very usable. I just wish they would finally wear out so I could buy a new pair :)

Great Stable Shoe

The Camp Four is sized very small. I had to order one full size larger. I got a pair for my wife and she had to get 1.5 sizes larger. That is the one negative. The shoe is very stable, has great traction on rock, and handles any kind of trail. It appears that it will be very durable. Very comfortable on the tough trails. One reviewer said you could climb 5.10s with this shoe. I'm not sure about that, but then I can't climb 5.10s with my climbing shoes.

Great shoe, maybe next time

Great shoes, but they just didn't fit me well, and a bit bulky. I would go up a half size if/when I order them again. I'm sure they will perform extremely well on the trail and provide sure-footedness on rock. Went with a pair of La Sportiva Exum's and they have been fantastic. Was looking for a hybrid runner and to me, the Camp Four was more of an approach/hiker, as they are billed. Killer shoe with great support.

Approach shoe approaching iconic status

This shoe has the combination of the industry's best climbing rubber, c4 and s1 Five-ten Stealth, to help maintain stability on the those pesky trails and uber-traction during the actual climb.

The fit is just a wee bit tight, but not uncomfortable, as expected from a climbing shoe. The aesthetics, and overall design are simply beautiful, so much so, that I've seen it worn around urban environments. I just hope that they were buildering.
