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.

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