Not the all around shoe I had hoped.

5.10 Tennie: great shoe. Everybody knows that. I was hoping to use this shoe as an all around shoe to go on hikes when not climbing and to also use as my approach shoe. As an approach shoe, this thing is great but as far as hiking I feel that it lacks the support needed to be comfortable for even short hikes with a mid sized pack.

I'd say the Tennie leans more towards a rock shoe than it does a hybrid, but if you need one shoe that you can walk to the crag, scramble up to the first pitch and then pop on when going up easy routes on a multipitch - you can't beat it.

I also recently had knee surgery and am looking for more support than, say, the normal guy.

I am a tall female with women's size 11 feet! There aren't many shoes in women's 4 me. When I say true to width, remember this. Guys with "beefy" feet might need wider shoes. They were snug but not tight; comfortable right out of the box. The traction is like a bunch of suction cups! Also the toe protection is great. I hiked the AT & stubbed my toe a couple times. I never felt it! The design of the shoe keeps your foot from sliding forward & smashing into the toe, & the toe rubber evenly distributes the impact. After a rainy/muddy weekend, they scrubbed clean with plain water & looked like new! I will buy another pair for when this one wears out because I'm going to wear them everywhere.

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.

Approach shoe or everyday shoe?

This shoe is designed as an approach shoe but I have been wearing mine as my everyday shoes and I couldn't be happier with them. The leather is stretchy and the laces run the entire length of the uppers, so this shoe really conforms to my foot. The midsole has just enough cushion to feel good but not squishy. Overall the shoe just feels like it is part of my foot.

Several people warned me that the soft stealth rubber on the soles would wear too quickly but after a couple months of around-town wear they seem to be holding up quite well. Can't wait to take them out on some rock when I get the chance!

I live in these in the summer...

In the last 10 years I have gone through 4 or 5 pairs of these. That's ok since I wear them from April through November for guiding. In Red Rocks Nevada I climb long multi-pitch routes 5.7 and under without ever putting my climbing shoes on. It is great to be comfortable on a 11 pitch route! They climb slabs (like Whitehorse Ledge) equally well. I do own a pair of more supportive trail shoes for high mileage days (Presidential Traverse) since the softness of this shoe will lead to sore feet if you putting in a 15+ mile day... but for moderate technical climbing there is not a better shoe out there!

Great shoe

I got these as a substitute for the Merrell barefoot trailglove I've been using for hiking, which I love. I hiked the Grand Canyon in them and they were awesome. I recently fractured my foot in a fall and needed a little more protection for day hikes but wanted something close to minimalist shoes with enough traction for light climbing.

I did some research and all pointed to these 5-10 Guides. Im glad to say they are more rugged then the reviews say. I use them for general 3 to 7 mile day hiking and light climbing several times a week and they are very well constructed and have terrific grip.
Kyle William at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) on 10/10/2012

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.

Great approach shoe!

Second pair of these. Love them both, great traction on the rock or the trail. Very comfortable, loved putting these back on after full a day in my rock shoes. I learned to size these a half size down, because they stretch quite a bit the first time they get wet. I normally wear a size 12 in street shoes, and most 5.10 shoes. I wear an 11.5 in these for a good balance of performance and comfort.

5.10 Guide Tennies

Stiff out of the box, these shoes break in relatively quickly and ultimately end up as cofortable as bedroom slippers. The rubber is exactly what you would expect from Five Ten...superb. I can not recomend these shoes strongly enough, provided they fit your feet well. I climb in Five Ten Galileos size 10 and I got these (twice so far) in the same size for a performance fit, but they are still very comfortable.

Blew out 1st day!

The sole started to de-lam after one 4 hr. canyon. Get real 5.10
