A cost-efficient way to transfer everything you learned in the gym to outdoor climbing.

Five Ten designed its Rogue VCS Climbing Shoe for beginning climbers who want to transfer what they've learned on plastic to outdoor rock. Just because it's inexpensive doesn't mean it's cheap on performance. Five Ten used the same last as its Stonelands shoe for a natural, relaxed fit that beginners crave while they learn how to step up on a jib or smear over slabs. The Rogue features a breathable split grain leather upper material that will conform to your foot while you climb for a glove-like fit, but be weary on sizing because this shoe can stretch up to a full size over time. Its hook-and-loop closure allows you to put this shoe on quickly and take it off easily. Five Ten also used its classic Stealth C4 rubber for excellent edging and high friction on greasy foot holds.

The Rogue features technologies that help beginners learn the basics of climbing without the discomfort of average climbing shoes. Its Active Arch Technology ensures a secure foot position within the shoe so your foot doesn't ride up to the front and squish your toes or fall back into the heal and prevent toe-ins on tiny features. The Comfort Range Slingshot across the heel gives your foot a snug fit without sacrificing comfort so you can focus on learning how to edge properly without worrying about whether or not your toes will be there when you take your shoes off.

  • Hook-and-loop closure

Here's what others have to say...


Great fit.. Great price

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

This shoe has been great for me so far. It is incredibly comfortable and fits nice and snug. I had ordered a half size under my street shoe size. This is really all I could ask for when shopping for my first climbing shoe.. that and the kick*** price!


5.10 Rouge

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs small

This is my first pair of climbing shoes.

I have been climbing for about 4 months now, mostly indoor with one adventure to the great outdoors, and I would say the shoe does very well.

I do agree that sometimes I might slip off of smaller foot holds but that doesn't make it a bad shoe. It could be that a lot of other people have slipped off of the same hold and now there is less traction due to their rubber being left behind on a tiny crimp hold that is a starting foot-hold.

The shoe stretched very well being a real leather with a synthetic sole and for an amateur climber, such as myself, the comfort after using them 5 or 6 times is great. At first I could only stay in the shoe for about 45 minutes to an hour and now I can go for about 2 - 2.5 hours with no complaints. Just keep in mind this isn't a gym shoe or a Nike Roshe Run. It is a climbing shoe, therefore it isn't going to feel like a cloud around your feet, even a little bit.

I would recommend this shoe to beginners or someone who is looking for not too aggressive of a shoe but still has some downturn to the point.

I wear a street shoe of 9.5 - 10 U.S. and I picked up an 8.5. If anything else I could have gone for an 8.



Super comfy

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

UPDATE: This particular pair had some sort of defect in the rubber and when it began to wear, the rubber started to come off in a chunk.

I am checking in with Back Country to see what they can do about it

They make a suction around my heel. Always comfortable and I would say they are very grippy. I disagree with the other reviewer on that point


Slips so easily

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

While I'm newer to climbing, I'm attacking 5.10 pitches in the canyons near SLC, Utah. I bought these shoes because the fit was great and they seemed comfy. I'll be returning them because they don't stick on tiny footholds like I want/need. I have been slipping like crazy on holds that I have climbed without a problem in other shoes.


Super comfy shoes

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

These shoes are probably the most comfy climbing shoes I own. I bought them 1/2 size smaller than street shoe. If you wanted a more precise toe and/or more power you could go down a little more. Really good, stretches to fit feet well. Great rubber.


Low quality shoe and service

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

After one weekend of relatively easy use, the rubber has started coming away from the shoe. This has happened on both shoes around the area where the toe bends. Backcountry referred me to FiveTen, they referred me to a local distributor, I emailed them and after one week - no response.

After one month, I received a replacement pair of shoes from FiveTen. Despite having to chase after them, I would now say the overall service has been satisfactory. I have not had a chance to try out the replacement pair yet to see if they have the same problem as the first.

I have been climbing in mine for a few months and haven't had any trouble. It was probably just a bad pair.

Hey guys, how much do these retail? when...

Hey guys, how much do these retail? when do you think they are gonna be available? and lastly, is the fit same as the old coyote leather or the mocs? thanks

Best Answer

It looks like we have some coming in around mid September (or hopefully sooner) and they should retail for around $100.
