Five Ten Exum Guide Shoe Reviews:


These are great boots that exceeded my expectations in just about every category but one. First the praise, these boots acquire a custom fit after a few adjustments. The boot has a snug fit that is very adjustable due to the lacing system. Once you find that right fit the laces will hold it for you in between wears. Three years later and many long slogs and a bunch of bagged 14ers the soles have held up pretty well. The rubber is sticky as all heck! The heel cup makes it damn near impossible to fully roll an ankle. One major complaint is the lack of a waterproof insert. It doesn't take much for this boot to soak through. This has deterred me from bringing these boots along for some hikes and approaches, if weather is questionable or a lot of snowpack is expected. The fit and rubber invokes a lot of confidence when scrambling and hiking, but without waterproofing this boot is held back. Simply put, if a waterproof insert was added to a new version of this shoe I would not hesitate to buy!

I have used a pair of Exums for a couple of years in the Californian Sierras.Together with superfeet insoles they make for very comfortable foot wear.
Bottom line: These are perfect shoes for multi-day trail hiking and scrambling in dry climates. They fit great and the soles have they best grip I have experienced so far. Highly recommended.
Use: The shoes were used for trail hiking and scrambling. They perform well for multi-day hiking trips on trails. The limit for the shoes seems to be off-trail hiking in rough terrain with a 30+ lbs pack. I recently did a multi-day backcountry trip in the Sonora Pass area and the shoes were a little too soft for a day long traverse over a ridge with volcanic debris. The shoes are little water resistant and I recommend use in dry climates.
Wear and tear: After multi-year use the soles are wearing down, but still grip very well. The rubber sole starts to delaminate in one spot. The inner linings of both heels have worn through, but that has not bothered me so far. The stitching is holding up well.

The 5.10 is one of the best shoes for climbing rugged rocky peaks I have ever owned. On dry rock I feel like a mountian goat. The shoes are difficult for me to put on due to my high instep and full volume foot, but once they are on they are incredibly comfortable. I use Super Feet to replace the okay but less than supportive insoles that coe with the shoe.
These shoes are like racing tires, they wear out after two seasons, but oh what a ride. My biggest complaint is the stiching. The stiching seems to start falling apart very quickly and the rubber rands start separating quickly as well. Still I climb 3 out of four weekends during the summer and fall and I love this shoe.
