I bought these about 3 months ago as my first pair of climbing shoes. The velcro straps are awesome for climbing at a gym as they can slip on and off easily. I am a size 13 and that is the size that I ordered and they were a little tight at the beginning but stretched out perfectly. They won't stretch as much as a leather upper will, but they do stretch. I have seen and looked at a bunch of different climbing shoes and I found that the C4 rubber is the best in my opinion and I will be sticking with 5.10 for my shoes. Been climbing at a gym about 3 - 5 times a week in these shoes since I got them and they are holding up fantastically, but again, that is in a gym so they don't get beat up as much and I am not a very advanced climber so I don't put as much stress on them as a more advanced climber might.
Theres nothing special or high tech about it. But if you are an average climber like myself this shoe will do. Hard to grip on the tiniest dime footholds, but isnt that hard period ha. The best thing about this shoe is that its comfortable, i wear it all the time when im climbing, no need to take it off to give your toes a break. Also i have wide feet, and these still fit great. All in all, its a good comfortable shoe, bring along an aggressive shoe for some more intense stuff.
Great grip, fit, and looks. The shoe is comfortable and it will do the trick for most levels of climbers. I'm a beginner and this shoe has been a great friend so far.
I generally wear a size US9 street shoe, and have a pair of size 9 Boreal climbing shoes. Ordered the same size in the Rogues and they're probably half a size too small. Just a warning for those who, like me, can't try a pair on before purchase.
The uppers are synthetic, and as such won't stretch.
