Cost-efficient climbing shoes for transferring gym to rock.
The Five Ten Rogue Lace Climbing Shoe won't break the bank, but that doesn't mean that Five Ten held back on technological advances. Built on the same last that Five Ten uses for its Stonelands shoe, the Rogue has a natural, relaxed foot position so you can learn the specifics of toeing into jibs without the discomfort of upper-end climbing footwear. The upper material is made with split grain leather to comfortably conform to your foot as you climb, and it has a uniform give and natural breathability for even more comfort. With its lace-up closure, you'll have customized tension around your foot so everything is nice and snug. The outsole is made out of Five Ten's classic Stealth C4 rubber that climbers have been using for years to set up the hardest routes out there.
The Rogue was designed for beginners who want to learn how to climb well in the gym and transfer that experience to climbing outside smoothly. It features Five Ten's Active Arch Technology to secure your foot in place so you don't feel it moving around while you learn proper feet placement. And its Comfort Range Slingshot cups your heel so you can develop technique and skills without sacrificing comfort.

Comfortable beginning/intermediate shoe
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
These were my first climbing shoes. I bought them 1/2 to 1 size down. I did a little mechanical stretching on the entire tor box and also some very specific for each big toe. I would say they stretch about 1/2 a size. The break in was fairly quick (about 4 trips to the gym). The C4 rubber is super sticky, and they are a tight comfortable fit. They edge and smear well in the gym. The down side is that the soles are not the most durable, after 6 months of climbing twice a week (gym only) they are in need of resoling. C4 is a softer rubber, so be prepared to resole sooner than some. Still, I like them, and until they got so thin that they were becoming unstable and hurting my toes on small chips, I was really enjoying climbing in them.
Not very good Quality
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I got these shoes in December and wore them at least 4 times a week in gym climbing, and took them out twice. After 1 week of climbing they starter fraying and falling apart. I'm not even an aggressive climber, they just didn't stay together at all. I tried using super glue but it really didn't help much. It would have been a good shoe if it stayed together, I loved the way it fit me super comfortable, and was an upgrade from my last pair but it was a bad qulality shoe.
Is this shoe true to street size? If I...
Is this shoe true to street size? If I wear a 7 should I buy a 7? I have tried on a pair of blackwings and so far can't wear a 7 because it's too small
I would stick with a size 7 in these or size up to a 7.5. The shoes are made of leather so they will break in and stretch out a bit. I am able to set up an order with 2 sizes and offer a free return label for the size once you let me know what one you want to return. If you are interested in doing that, then email me directly at email@example.com and we can go from there.
I am a size 11 to 11.5 running and street shoe, and I bought them in size 10.5 which worked out perfectly for me.
