  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These approach shoes are awesome! I have been looking for approach shoes for a while and I decided to get 5.10 Tennie shoe because they have really good arch support! The only problem I have with them is that I put them on once without untying the laces and it pushed the material down in the back which ruined them when I did this. They will now forever dig into the back of my heels. other than that they are perfect, great rubber very sticky! They are also breathable my feet never feel overheated

I'm like Spiderman, MY BOOTS ARE STICKY!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are darn tough!
I feel like I can do anything when I have them on. SUPER STICKY, comfy and stiff.
I've used these shoes to approach climbs, pack packing and just hiking around. I normally wear chacos when I hike. When I need more shoe... these are my go to shoes!
One thing I like about them when camping is that they are fast and easy to slide on when getting out of my tent.

They do get warm for sure but I don't really over heat.

I find that they fit true to size.

The best shoes on the planet.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Bold statement... I know. Not only are these the most comfortable shoes ever- they go EVERYWHERE. Awesome for hiking, climbing, jumping, running, etc. I have climbed up to 5.10 (no pun intended) routes in these shoes alone and I'm a pretty mediocre climber. The only downfall to these shoes is the rubber wont last forever, that's a tradeoff you get from the performance and the insane grip- that, and I gave a pair to my mom and she said they mark up her white-tiled kitchen. C'est la vie. I still claim they are the best shoes ever and I never forget them on an adventure.

I find them pretty true to size actually- I wear an 8.5 typically and the 8.5's fit great. These shoes do stretch a little bit because of the leather/suede upper.

runs big

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I tried the 9.5 but sadly, it looks like I might need a 9, maybe smaller, and sadly, there are no 9's left. Otherwise these shoes appear to be sweet!

Bomber stick! Like a lizard on a rock

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes do what they were intended for and more! I have scrambled up super sketchy approaches on all different kinds of rock. Hiked more miles than I care for. Climbed wide cracks and alpine routes in these babies! They have saved my rear from taking some major falls. Forgot them once on a climbing trip. Was so upset I almost cried! They are a part of me when I'm out there. They have a hole in the side and the dot soles are almost completely gone, but they STILL stick and are still awesome!

Needed for mixed use

I've used this shoe for almost everything. For approaches to a climb or even on Canyoneering trips. It sticks incredibly well to sandstone and granite. When when wet. When they get wet they will shrink (because it is leather) but they will stretch out as you use it.

Hiking/scrambling they get the job done

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs large

I've had this shoe and put it through the wringer! Wear them all the time. Contrary to what most of the reviews are saying about the shoes fitting a narrow foot, I have a wide foot and they fit really well. It was so long ago that I first broke them in, it's hard for me to remember if they were ever uncomfortable. I love the dots! Solid shoe for the outdoors and mine are still in super great shape. They definitely hold up!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just picked these up yesterday. I found that while the men's guide tennie runs true to size, the women's is a half size big. I ended up down sizing from an 8 to a 7.5.

Super comfy, super sticky.

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got these shoes mainly for low grade climbing but they are so comfortable I wear them hiking and for every day stuff. I have a narrow foot and they fit me great! The dot rubber is the stickiest sole money can buy. :) Keep in mind however that dot rubber is not a good sole for snow/ice, but they are my go to shoe for spring/summer/fall. 5.10 lives up to it's name, it's one of my favorite pairs of shoes! AND, they're super cute.

Really tight and narrow

These are really tight and narrow, but come to think of it, aren't all approach shoes tight and narrow? At least all the ones I've tried on are. Just a heads up these have the round dots on the sole (I only bring that up because I know some people that don't like that style tread), but like all Five Ten's they are super grippy!

How do these shoes fit? I wear a 6 in...

How do these shoes fit? I wear a 6 in street shoes, and 6.5 in running shoes. I am trying to find a pair of approach shoes to replace my La sportiva boulder X shoes which were too small in both the women's 6 and 6.5. How does the sizing run compared to brands like La Sportiva or Scarpa?

Best Answer Responded on

I wear a 7 in street shoes and a 7.5 in running shoes. I tried these on in the 7.5 and they were roomy and comfortable, but I got the size 7 because I wanted them a little smaller for class 3 climbing. They are actually so comfortable I wear them all the time! (P.S. I have a narrow foot and they fit me great!).

Take the time

Take the time

When you are a mother and a business woman and love the outdoors; it's beyond the word "challenge" to find time to play outdoors.
I do my very best to get out once a week and hike or snowshoe.
I needed a new pair of shoes; something that reminded me of the good ole days of wandering and wondering.
So, I went on line and tried to find a pair of shoes that would be good for every aspect of my life and really great for heading out to play when an unexpected moment arrives.
These shoes are my new best friend. I had so much fun with them. I took them through snow, water, rocks, pine needles. Walked across trees that have fallen all across the trail and then back to work. They are the support I need to make this crazy life more balanced. Tomorrow they are off doing photography with my daughter.
Take the time to enjoy perfect moments in everyday; a moment can be as long as a blink of an eye, but it can be a memory a great memory for a lifetime.
