Description

An inexpensive climbing shoe that doesn't lack in performance.

Five Ten designed its Women's Rogue VCS Climbing Shoe for beginners who want to transfer what they learned in the gym to the outdoors with ease. Built with the same last as Five Ten's Stonelands series, this shoe has a naturally relaxed foot position so you can learn how to climb comfortably without the constant discomfort of downturned climbing shoes. The Rogue's upper material is made out of split grain leather that conforms to your foot while you climb for a glove-like fit, and it has a uniform give and natural breathability. This shoe uses two hook-and-loop straps so you can put it on and take it off with ease. The outsole uses Five Ten's classic Stealth C4 for excellent edging and high friction that'll keep you on the greasiest of holds in the gym or on natural rock.

The technologies used in the Rogue work toward keeping your foot both snug and comfortable. Its Active Arch Technology ensures a consistent position so your foot won't slide forward in the shoe, and the Comfort Range Slingshot wraps around your heel to secure the back of your foot so you can develop your skills and techniques.

Finger cracks and slabs

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

This is a soft unlined shoe with velcro and low-volume sizing for fit and pointed toes. It enables good footwork without being painful, but it is not a powerful shoe because it is not stiff or downpointed at all.

I bought these for the gym, but put a hole in them in less than 2 months. I am hard on my gym shoes and I have a friend who has been using hers in the gym 2x per week for 6 months or more. They can work as a gym shoe, but they are not as durable as an Evolv, such as the Elektra.

I did find that these are excellent on finger cracks. I've worked on Sherrie's Crack (Yosemite) and Johnny Cat (Indian Creek) in them and loved them. They spooge into relatively small (#0.3-0.75 Camalot) cracks very well. Additionally, the rubber is sticky and because the shoes are soft, they give you a lot of surface area on friction moves so they are great for when the crack really gets too small or for full-on slab climbing.

Of course, they underperform on overhangs because they are not stiff enough for you to get real power out of your feet in them. That said, I climbed Serengeti (Bishop) and worked out the moves on Ironman (Bishop) in them, so they can work for bouldering as well.

As for sizing, they run similar to other 5.10 shoes. I am a 7.5 street shoe, a 37.5 Elektra, a 36.5 La Sportiva (Mythos and Miura Lace-ups), and I am a 37.5 (7) in these shoes.

Dancing shoes.

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

I loved these shoes after my first climb. Slipper-like fit, super snug but the unlined leather means it conforms to your feet and will continue to do so, so it will get better and better with time. I have a few pairs of climbing shoes, some that are quite aggressive and some that aren't, but I found myself really enjoying these for those days that you don't feel like crying. I find that these are a great relaxed-position shoe (no claw-like hooks needed here... I don't climb v8's) but still has a super tight fit and pointed toe so you can feel and grip onto the tiniest little ledges.

I would recommend these kicks to anyone who's looking for their first pair of shoes, especially if you have oddly shaped feet because of the ability for the unlined leather to stretch and conform to them.

I've found FiveTen's climbing shoe sizing works great if you just stick to your street size- I wear an 8.5 womens' street shoe and the 8.5 in this shoe fits great, very tight with just a bit of toe-curl. I wouldn't recommend downsizing.
