Welcome to the Team.
Send the steepest, pumpiest, and most challenging boulder problems with the Five Ten Team 5.10 Climbing Shoe underfoot. Its Stealth HF rubber conforms to microscopic edges and crystals so you can stick to the smallest features even when you're climbing in overhanging caves, and its downturned profile includes an aggressive curvature to give you the power you need to crush the hardest problems out there if you're up for it. Five Ten built the upper out of synthetic microfiber to reduce stretching and keep the shoe strong for many seasons, and the elasticized entry eases your foot into the shoe without any tears while the hook-and-loop closure provides a snug fit.

Great shoe so far
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
I just got these the other day and have had the chance to use them a few times. So far I love them if you like climbing anything steep these will work fantastically. The rubber is supper thin so you feel everything you toes are on, It's is also supper sticky, and finally the down turn makes them great for climbing roof where you really have to toe in on stuff. I wear a size 12 street shoe, a 10 in the anasazi vcs, and a 11 in these so mine are super super tight. They are not unbearably painful but they sure ain't comfy. I personally like the slipper style of shoe for the tight fit and security bit if you aren't used to that I would warn against these. It also makes them hard to get on. another thing is if you don't have very good foot work your gonna blow through these fast.
So in short if you want a super sensitive aggressive shoe for steep sport climbing and bouldering these will definitely fulfill that wish.
Does the synthetic microfiber stretch much?...
Does the synthetic microfiber stretch much? I'm switching over to these from La Sportiva Pythons (which I love) and with them being more of a slipper with an upper strap like these 5.10's, will I see as much stretch? The pythons are leather, and they stretched nearly a full size. But from what I've read, the synthetic material doesn't stretch much. Could anyone verify this?
Hey Ryan!! So these will not stretch nearly as much as the pythons. You are 100% correct on leather vs synthetic. Synthetic will not really stretch at all where as leather will stretch out quite a bit. If you have more questions on them, feel free to chat in to me. I am in till 3:45 today and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I climb mostly in the pythons and these. In the pythons I wear a 7.5 and in these a 8.5. These things dont stretch at all. The rubber softens and they get more comfy but the fit is the same as the first time I put them on.
how do these compare to the 5.10 dragon...
how do these compare to the 5.10 dragon and or quantum?
I have found my dragons true to my sizing in quantums and the dragons are by far the smallest best fitting shoe to my foot I've worn from many different companies. (I think 5.10 fits my foot well.)
PS. I have used quantum and the dragons for the past year of climbing. I have owned the Blue and the newest VXi. The VXi was to soft for me on quite a bit of climbs I did though.
From what I heard a few years ago. This shoe and the black wings are pretty much the updated/ velcro version of the dragons. I would stick with the same size you went with in the dragons and quantum's.
For me I am a 8 in really tight dragons and a 8.5 is what I climb in these.
I have found that compared to my dragons these teams (black) require me to down size a half size to get the same fit.
