Five, Ten, buy them again....

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 185 lbs
    Size Purchased: 9.5

Besides looking like an extra in Back to the Future II from the ankle down these were a great purchase. I'm about a 8.5 - 9 foot but I bought the 9.5 men's because I wanted to make sure I had room for some of the neoprene socks or layering which at a .5- 1 size larger worked great with wearing synthetic or wool socks.

I took these on two trips last year to the boundary waters in N. Minnesota, both canoe trips required getting into the lake or stream to properly portage and get the canoe out safely as it is very rocky always everywhere.
These shoes were not only good for safety from sharp rocks they provided pretty good ankle support as well (not as good as lace-up). carrying a 3 man canoe 100 rod up some pretty sketchy elevations boulders and rocks not only did these grip really well in the wet muddy conditions the protection in the toe helped as well, now I do understand that if you are really flexing one of the boots there is a point where you can feel the reinforced guard so bending the toe part of the boot back more than lets say 65 degrees could be uncomfortable but climbing sideways on steep inclines still provided great traction and support.

I was trucking along and could even jog with confidence rock to rock jumping to get my pack and paddles after carrying the canoe that was important to me.

The other reason I wanted these and I should've tested this at home but I did on the trip was at base camp I took the boots and socks off the real test is always will they dry overnight and they did completely even late fall when it maxed out at 60 with a little sun and cooled down into the low 40's.. my other canoe shoes once wet were done that's it, even next to the fire all night still damp leaving me basically sandal-ing it or carrying two pairs of boots/shoes which I hated..
These were dry we packed jump in the canoes portaged to a couple more lakes and did it all over again.

I would've loved to use these with neoprene socks that was my intent but I could not find a good enough sock in time this year I will have at least 3 more opportunities to get out with these boots again.

Since my trip a few friends and relatives have set their eyes on these as well.

The buckles are not the best for tightening but they work well that's my one dig I bought them big so I could layer and snug them up. I have wider feet I didn't have any issues with blisters and my feet are pretty sensitive especially once wet, because they dried on their own I was able to start fresh the next day.

I contemplated the blue version originally(non-reinforced toe) and I think those would be equally as good , but these are great I may still get the blue ones too because they are lighter.

These are easy on and off the buckles are the only trick either too tight or kind of loose, make sure you consider nylon/poly or neoprene if your going to get your feet wet intentionally and you can layer thin synthetic socks to fill them out which was also great because these allow your feet to stay pretty cool.

My trips to BWCA are typically 4-6 days 2-3 times per year, we usually do anywhere from 3-5 portages which could be anywhere from 5-8 hours a day in and out of a canoe in all conditions all terrain because the further in the narrower the portage rocky, washed out, mud, lots of up and down with some climbing of maybe 50-100 ft gradual incline (canoe tipped at a 45 or slightly more sometimes). I also brought these on hikes and two other camping trips they didn't get to see all elements so the better test is up north near the Canadian Border.

It took me 7 years to kill my first pair

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

If you're new to canyoneering, you might think you can get by with some other water shoe. Fuggett-abbatt-it! My first trip down the Zion Narrows (top to bottom) was in some promising looking Addidas water tennies. Um, no. The fancy looking laces broke on mile 4, and all the rocks in the river conspired to hobble me. I could feel even the pea-size pebbles through the soles. So I splurged as soon as we exited the canyon and bought a pair of these Canyoneers, which I then took on any hike involving a water crossing. For 7 years, including the Bridge to Nowhere in LA many times, Orderville, Pine Creek and the Subway (in Zion). I love them for sticking to even the slimiest rock, and protecting my feet and ankles on all sides. I am guessing I put about 500 miles on mine before they just plain gave out. The last time I went to Zion (Narrows, again), I finally destroyed them: it was a good death, as that is the place where all Canyoneers (the shoes) go to die. About 4 miles into the hike, the soles on both shoes tore off and I spent the remaining 12 miles creatively macrame-ing them onto my feet (the orange lacing in the photo eventually lashed an old, oversize pair of Crocs -- a friend's -- over the soleless shoes). Even then, they did the job. And best of all, these come in orange, which is important when your feet are turning purple and wrinkly.I recommend adding a pair of thin neoprene socks, which will keep your foot in place even if the shoe or straps loosen during transit.

Great Grip with poor durability.

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

Bought 40 pairs (Canyoneer, SAR, Camp4, Savants) in the last 2 years for our tour guides as well as to rent to our guest in our river trekking/canyoneering adventure company. The do offer the best grip available, but the quality of construction or materials are terrible. They come apart after just a few outings forcing us to do weekly shoe repairs with glue and duct tape. Tried contacting the Five-Ten, not even a reply. I love the grip of this shoe but I won’t recommend it unless you want to become a master at shoe repairing.

Great Grip with poor durability.
Responded on

I'm interested to see how mine hold up a few more rigorous adventures.. Maybe I need to 'drive them like I proverbially stole them'... Sad to hear Five Ten didn't even reply.

A waste of your money

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

Bought these for kayaking in creek environments, where you are moving inside canyons. (needless to say, since you spend a lot of time in the boat, they actually get less use than they would in canyoneering)The rubber is incredibly sticky and provides better traction than anything else i've ever tried, but that's about the only good thing i can say about them. As for the fit, it's horrible. The straps fail to cinch down the foot properly, and instead, the toe box is very cramped (you would need to get a half size larger than you normally would, but this would worsen the support issue) But the biggest problem is durability, or the lack thereof. After about 6 months of moderate use (by canyoneering standards) they started to fall apart at every seam, to the point of rendering the boot unusable, less than a year after purchase. This is unacceptable for a $150+ shoe!
So, despite being very impressed with the sole's performance, i have to write off this product as a total waste of precious money. No recommend...

Good boot

I have gone through a few pairs of the bumble bee Canyoneers and decided to opt for the dayglow orange this time. Nothing compares to the stealth rubber soles on these boots. They preform best when wet and they are actually not to bad for all day canyon trips. By the end of the day you are stoked to get your flip flops on but these boots are great.

The only con to these boots is that they have a ceramic toe box to meet ANSI ratings and sometimes when side-hilling down slickrock ramps on an angle it can get painful as the toe box digs into your toes.

My next pair I will go back to the bumble bee yellow standard cayoneers

Amazing shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Great traction, even when wet! Great fit as long as you size up properly for the sock you'll where with it. Very light, and study toe composite. Went thru some tough stuff and withstood it. Highly recommend it!

Steel Toe and super grip

This shoe is great for canyoneering or caving/mining because of the Steel Toe so you don't smash your toes with a loose rock or accidentally kick an old rusty nail. They are super grippy on rocks when you need to do some sketchy stemming or climbing. If you are going to wear them with neoprene socks be sure to size up to make room for those 2mm - 5mm neo socks.

Five Ten SAR

I bought the SARs & the Canyoneer 2 for my husband to pick from & he chose the Five Ten Canyoneer 2 because of the very hard reinforced toe box. He felt that it wouldn't be as efficient as the Canyoneer 2 for climbing when you need to get your foot in a small crevice. These boots are very well made though.

Five Ten SAR shoes

These shoes have great ankle support and tread. Used them in the Narrows didn't fall once. Hiked from the bottom up to the subway in 90 degree heat stopping often in deep pools to cool off. Made the heat bearable and I didn't have to take the boots on and off. I took others recommendations and bought a larger size for neoprene socks.

Good boots -

Great support and sticky, I use gators as the top is very open and I get a ton of rocks in them.

Five Ten SAR Shoe - Don't canyoneer without them

I have owned the Five Ten SAR shoe for about a year now and I have taken them down approximately 15 canyons. These shoes are absolutely essential for technical canyoneering because of the stealth rubber soles which have unbelievable grip in both dry and wet conditions. Whether rigging a rap station or downclimbing, these shoes provide stability in precarious situations.

I have used both the SAR and the Canyoneer 2 and many folks are unclear with respect to the differences. The SAR has a steel toe which is both good and bad. On the con side, the steel toe adds weight and does not allow you to jam your toe in smaller spaces while stemming or climbing. On the plus side, the steel toe has saved me bruises numerous times on falls or when walking in rivers with limited visibility below. The rubber and grip is effectively the same between the two models.

I typically wear a size 10.5 or 11 shoe and I went with the 11 in the SARs. I have wide feet and the 11s provided me with a bit more room on that front when I wear my 3mm neoprene socks with a merino sock underneath. Five mm neo socks would be a tight fit, but that is more about the width of my foot as opposed to toe room.

A necessity for canyoneering

The SAR's are surprisingly sticky, making downclimbing a breeze. These shoes will tempt you to downclimb an obstacle you really should be rapping over. Buckle/strap system seems flimsy but shoe is well constructed other than that. Plan on wearing a thick wool or neoprene sock with these shoes or deal with wicked blisters.

Overall not super comfy but tough, warm and supportive.

Five Ten SAR Shoe - Men's

I bought both versions of these boots and as far as comfort and performance hands down the best boots I have had. However, I broke the buckles off of both sets of boots. Construction was a little weak for field work.

fantastic boots...

i live in vermont by the lamoille river. it presents many challenges and the terrain is constantly changing. the stretch i paddle on between jeffersonville and johnson has varied conditions, downed trees, old farm equipment, lots of rocks, both smooth and jagged. after stepping on a rock and almost piercing my kayak boots, and being grateful i got away without stitches - figured it's time for a boot upgrade. i was torn between the SAR and the 2 versions, but after stubbing my toes on too many rocks, i went for the SAR version.

i recieved them, ordered pairs but i'm always between sizes. they tend to run small like salomon trail runners.

got travel orders so i have to wait till next weekend to try them out.

Step up from the Canyoneer 2

This is the same shoe as the Canyoneer 2 but with a little extra grip and is orange! It was made for Search And Rescue, but will work great for Canyoneering and other activities too! Excellent grip, heel cage and added ankle support in the neoprene upper help keep those ankles from rolling, double layer mesh to let water in and out without letting sand in. I wear a 5mm neoprene sock with this shoe so be sure to get a half size bigger so you don't squish those dogs!
