A quantum leap for climb-kind.
The Five Ten Men's Quantum Climbing Shoe defies gravity when you're climbing steep sport routes and bouldering overhung problems. It has an aggressive downturn, sharp curvature, and stiff midsole to ensure the highest performance you can muster. Five Ten's famous Stealth C4 rubber gives this shoe good grip on microscopic edges, small smears, and technical terrain. Five Ten redesigned this shoe with a wider last for more comfort on long climbing sessions. Expect limited stretch out of the synthetic Clarino upper, and a lot of comfort out of the padded Ariaprene tongue.

This is an awesome shoe and can be used for a variety of purposes depending on how you size it. The combination of a moderate downturn and lots of stiffness works really well. They stretch just a little each session after you sweat and get them warm but tend to shrink right back to the original size after they dry out. The inner lining and tongue are super comfy. I was worried about the stink from the synthetic material but they don't smell any worse than my leather shoes. I wear a size 11 street shoe, size 10.5 guide tennie and bought these in a size 11. They fit quite tight but are bearable enough for a pitch or two.
This is my first more aggressive shoe and so far it has been nice! It took a while for them to break in but after about a month they started to feel a lot better! Most of my use is in the gym especially now that it's getting colder but they have held together well and I love using them! I only wish they were Velcro.
