The standard for seriously hard climbing.

The Five Ten Moccasym Climbing Shoe has been a staple of cutting-edge sport climbing and bouldering for as long as most climbers have been climbing. The minimalist design uses a thin sole, slip-lasted construction, and an unlined leather upper to give you extreme sensitivity on the most desperate climbing out there.
  • Unlined leather upper stretches 1/2 to 1 full size
  • Thin, soft C4 rubber soles stick to any smears
  • Slip lasted construction lets this shoe mold to your foot for a custom fit

Comfortable Shoes

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

I didn't get these shoes too tight, I wanted something that I can climb in, but didn't have to take it off after every route I tried. I got a size that fit snug, but moderately comfortable and have no problem keeping them on for hours. They still perform well, the heel isn't the greatest but that's a given for slip on shoes. It has super sticky rubber so it's great for slab and I've done plenty of crack climbing in these bad boys. Highly recommended.

Love my moccs

These were my first pair of climbing shoes ever and I have retired them to my personal shrine so that the gigantic holes in the toe remind me of just how much I loved these shoes. They are a GREAT beginner's shoe if sized comfortably, and now, as an intermediate climber, a great easy on/off option that I can size small for technical climbs. The shoes stre----------tch, probably .5-1.0 size during the life of the shoes (depends on how much mileage you get out of them). I am street 11, size 10 in anasazis, and prefer a size 10 or size 9.5 mocc.

I used to be addicted to these..

But they wear out too fast. I climb cracks about three days a week. I've gone through four pairs in a year and I always blow through the resole period before two months. I developed a neuroma on my second toe because the shoes wore through in three months and the cracks were rubbing against my skin. It would be nice if the rubber covered a little bit more of the toe/side. They stretch about 1.5-2 sizes for me, so I downsize pretty heavily. I would only downsize 1-1.5 for cracks. These shoes aren't the best for edging, especially when they're the slightest bit loose, so on multipitch I prefer TC Pros. I use these for a gym shoe and single pitch trad.

Comfortable and Sticky

I use my Moccasyms mainly for non technical sport climbing and bouldering with lots of features. These don't have the stiffness or lateral strength of the Anasazi but what they lack in toe pushing power, they make up in comfortability.
The leather and thinner (but not too thin) rubber conform to your feet in such a way that it gives your foot a more "direct" and connected feel to the wall. These things eat up anything with texture, sandstone faces that send you slipping everywhere in your more technical, stiff soled shoes, now just get eaten up by the Moccasyms. Biggest gripe is that I seem to blow out the toe on every pair that I've owned, even after re-soling.
Fits true to size due to the stretch.

New look same great shoe!

I keep going back to this shoe. It is perfect for me. This time I picked up a pair of size 5.5 for my girl. They showed up just like the other moccs I've seen, but when my size 8's came in, they had an updated look with new heel loops and 5.10 logo on the side. I also noticed the moccasym tag on side has been replaced with an anasazi tag. Other than that the shoe is still the same great shoe.

Are the sizes for the Moccasym in men's?...

Posted on

Are the sizes for the Moccasym in men's? I wear a 7.5-8 women's street shoe and a 6.5 women's La Sportiva Miuras. Any recommendations for sizing in the Moccasym? Should I go all the way down to size 4?

Responded on

You are better off trying them on. They fit differently than
La sports s and even differently than other five tens I've had. I take an 8 in these, 7.5 in la sport solutions, and 10.5 street shoe. It's a great all around shoe though. Very comfy.

Responded on

I'm the same size street as you. I wear these as a 6 for sport and 6.5 for flatter-flatter footed crack needs. At 6.5 I get a bit of gap in my left heel which is the 7.5, while it's perfect for my right which is 8. I wear the same size as you in Miuras.

Anyone have a fix for the pressure point...

Posted on

Anyone have a fix for the pressure point the elastic on these causes on the bone just below your ankle? I got a pair of these for multipitch and crack, and the pain the elastic causes is unbearable after a single pitch. I got these in size 9, wear a size 10 street. They're well broken in on the toes, just the sides hurt like hell. If there's no work around, any other shoe suggestions (non-laceup)?

Responded on

I had the same problem, particularly on the inside part of my foot, where the seam between the elastic and the rubber rubs really painfully against the bone. However, I just kept wearing them and a month or so later they're the most comfy shoe I've ever owned. Hmm.. honestly a lot of the best trad shoes are lace up, I guess you could check out the supermoccs?

Best Answer Responded on

I bought these super small to get a good fit for all kinds of climbing. I started out unable to walk in them but they are my go to comfy shoe now. They stretched continuously for almost 6 weeks. They are the perfect marriage between comfort and performance for me now. Keep wearing them, try wearing them around the house. They will break in. The upper will stretch out.

great shoes for traditional climbing

These are great shoes. I mainly use them for cracks and granite and they are excellent. They provide all day comfort once broken in. I normally wear 9.5 but I size them down to 9. After I would say 10 to 12 routes the shoes will have broken in and they fit like they were custom made. Whenever I put them on or take them off I get a satisfying "vacuum suction" sound that tells me it is fits perfectly. But before they are broken in, after a few routes my heels start to hurt terribly. After they are broken in, it is literally all day comfort. I have seen people wear these for steep bouldering and I don't know how since they are way too loose after they are broken in.

Also, these shoes are not the most durable if you mainly climb cracks. Put some stealth paint on the top to prevent your toe from popping through the leather before the rubber does. But also the rubber will wear out quite fast in my experience. The worse is probably the glue that holds the top to the leather stops working and the top rubber starts to separate from the leather. I am not sure they can be resoled at that point but that's the tradeoff for one of the best shoes ever made is that they are not the most durable.

These are my go-to shoes for outdoor traditional climbing.

Love this shoe

Got this as my first pair of climbing shoes and I LOVE them. I wore a 12 in most Evolv's and got these in an 11. They were definitely tight, and not real comfortable to stand around in, but once I start climbing it's not a problem at all. These are solid on my foot and despite being "slip" ons, there is no slip at all. At this size they do take a little work to get on, but not more than 30 seconds a piece. After about 20 climbing sessions, these are beginning to feel like they were made for my feet, and they definitely give me more confidence on tiny ledges and smearing than I ever had with any pair of Evolv's I tried.

Great Slip On

I usually prefer a lace up but these shoes have been amazing. Rigid for the first few days but now that they are broken in they feel a lot like a really thin comfortable sock. Lots of toe control for stuffing into small finger cracks but they still edge fairly well.

I bought a size 10, which is my street shoe size and they fit great. For comparison I wear a size 8.5 Mythos.

Great Comfortable Shoe

Really comfortable shoe to wear, not great on overhangs but smears really well. I was wearing a (very tight!!!) men's 9, 5.10 team shoe-the blue ones-and wear these in a 7. Yeah! I know! Could barely get these on to try out. But they immediately stretch out so well that it molds to the shape of your foot.

Evolv defy's I wore an 8
5.10 team 9/9.5
Mocs I wear a 7
Hope that helps for your fitting them.

Thanks backcountry for being so helpful too!

Great mid-level shoe

A perfect shoe for gym climbing and slab routes. The mid-sole is super flexy, so wearing them for edgy footwork and Smith Rock-style nubs makes for sore feet. However, since they don't have a well-defined edge, they will improve your footwork. Makes for a great practice shoe, and being reasonably priced is also a plus. They do stretch a bit, so size down enough to make your toes scream when you start to break them in. The resulting fit will be perfect!

best shoes

I don't think I will ever switch to any other shoe. They do take a while to break in. Don't stretch too much (compared to others). All-around good pick and moderately priced too. Perfect for sport but if I were looking for something for more intense bouldering, I probably wouldn't recommend them.
