how does this shoe compare to the five ten guides? I generally buy size 5 in the guides but am looking for a second pair of approach shoes. Is this similar sizing to the guides or is it smaller?

5 5


I remember my first shoe love. It was 1994, a football game, ETHS versus Deerfield (go Wildkits), and Bill B was wearing the newest Air Pegasus, the grey and green version. I haven't felt that same level of emotion about a shoe until now. So far I have used them to approach the Gunks, P-tuck and LCC and they performed to perfection. I look forward to approaching more boulders all season long in these bad boys. They run a touch small, so I would suggest getting them a half size up.

The Wildkits. I remember them well. Not to be mistaken for a wildcat.

Any comments on the stiffness of this shoe? Sole looks great for big-wall climbing and easy free climbing, but wondering how comfortable I would be standing in my aiders in these.

How do these compare to the Tennie in terms of usability and comfort for long wears? (i.e. - hiking; approach)

Responded on

I'd say these are slightly less supportive than the Guide Tennie, but remain in the same ballpark- Light hikers/ excellent scrambling approach shoe.

I usually wear a size 8 in normal shoes, but my climbing shoes are a size 7. Since I will mostly be using these shoes for hiking to the crag, what size do you suggest I order?
Thank you,

I would pick right in the middle and go with 7.5, which is in stock. As long as you have good socks on you shouldn't get blisters or the like, and you will want these tighter than a street shoe, since approach can include some tricky scrables or short free climbs and the like.
