Description

What the pros use on their hardest routes.

The Team 5.10 Climbing Shoe uses a ridiculously thin Stealth Mystique sole to allow the surgically precise footwork you need to send your hardest projects. This shoe also features a microfiber upper to ensure excellent breathability and a precise fit that doesn’t require a month of break-in time. Five Ten drew upon its deep wealth of world-class climbers to design this shoe right and make it the go-to choice when you need to turn dime edges into ladder rungs.

Bring back the Project!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

In a quest to replace my rapidly wearing 5.10 Projects, I stumbled upon these. They're not quite as thin and certainly not as sensative as my coveted Projects but, they're as close as I'm going to get...They're very good and, I must say that there are times when I appreciate this more agressive approach.

The sizing is odd...I had to go a full size up from my last 5.10 pair.

Weird sizing, good shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ended up getting these shoes because they were on sale a while back, so I didn't expect anything spectacular, but I have been very impressed so far. I wear a 11 street shoe, so after trying them on at my local gear shop, I went with a 11.5, which was a good decision. For reference, I wear a 10 in Moccasyms and a 42.5 in aggressive sportivas (testarossa, solution, etc.). The fit is not bad after break in, so I can usually wear them for 15-20 minutes at a time. Hope this helps! Next time I'm going to get the new version and see how they have changed.

Fantastic shoes

So recently bought my second pair of Teams...I really loved the first pair. These are really powerful shoes, great for high level bouldering especially on steep and overhanging terrain. Very downturned toe which is amazing for edging, however not as helpful when the terrain turns less than vertical. They really excel on the steep. I agree with other reviewers that say they are hard to get on but once on are snug with a deep heel cup and excel with heel hooks too. So only reason I gave 4 rather than 5 stars, is fitting them. The first pair I bought I went 1/2 size down from street shoe 9.5 (I wear size 10 in nearly every shoe dress or athletic), it was unreal difficult to get on- first time took probably 20 min of fighting. Once on they hurt and they really dont stretch so after about 4 weeks of climbing in them I sold them to a friend. I then ordered size 10. This was a better fit, still can be tough to get on but can climb for several hours in them. Well I just ordered a replacement pair and something is up with 5.10's QC because they are also size 10 but are literally a half an inch longer. They go on with ease and are pretty comfy. I dont understand how these are so much larger than the current pair I have been wearing. So it is probably worth trying on in a store. Based on my initial pair I would suggest go with your street size (they dont stretch), but based on what I just received I would go down at least 1/2 size.

I'm curious on the sizing of this shoe - I'm looking to upgrade from my moccasyms, which I don't always trust heel/toe hooking. I'm normally a 7.5(womens) in street shoes and i sized into a 6 in the moccs. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on what i should size to in these bad boys, how much to size down from street, and if there are any other lovely ladies out there willing to help me on this one. Thanks very much.

Responded on

I'll go try some on tonight and get back to you. I usually climb in moccasyms, so I should be able to get a pretty good estimate.

Responded on

Although not a lady I can tell you that I size down in the Moccasym 1.5 sizes comfortably from my street shoe and in the Team I had to wear street size to get any use out of them. I'm no stranger to tight shoes either as I size down in most brands other than 5.10 (Mocassym excluded, but they are unlined leather). So my suggestion would be street shoe size on these.

Responded on

I wear a size 7.0(mens) in moccasyms, size 8.5(men's) street shoe, and a size 8.0(men's) in the Teams. So I advise going with your street shoe size or possibly a size down if you're looking for something SUPER aggressive.

I wear a 7.0(mens) in the moccasym, and a 8.0(mens) is the smallest I could get my foot into for the Teams. The 8 felt painfully snug, but would probably stretch out to fit. I wear an 8.5 street shoe, so a half size down might be right. Hope this helps!

i wear size 11 street shoes and my La sportiva's are a size 43.5 and fit snug but not bad. I ordered these shoes in an 11 and its a 44.5 but they are a bit TO snug. what size do i need to get in 5.10 team shoes if i exchange them? would a half size work so an 11.5?

Best Answer Responded on

I have these shoes and wear a 10.5 street, 10.5 Team. They are very tight and moderately uncomfortable, but perform well. The feeling gets better with time (mostly because your feet get used to it), but I'd say to only go up a half size or else risk losing some of the aggressive feel that these have. Go with the 11.5

I have a size 9.5/10 street shoe, and I wear the evolv defys at a 9 (probably should have gone for 8.5 though, would be perfect aggressiveness). Where would I be in these shoes if I should be in an aggressive 8.5 defy?

Responded on

Honestly probably about the same. I can't say for sure, but i wear a 13 street shoe and would do these in an 11.5 most likely. Hope this helps.

One of the best

Let me start off by saying that I personally have been climbing for about a year and a half in mainly a indoor gym and that I mainly boulder v5 to v6. I have also owned these shoes for about 6 months now and i have to say that since I got these shoes my climbing has improved greatly. The down turned toe may not be the best with vertical climbs but when your using it with overhangs, caves and especially bouldering.

The team 5.10's stealth rubber is one of the stickiest rubbers on the market and really helps with getting some of the smallest chips on the wall. The teams also have a good amount of rubber on the toe and a deep heel cup for remarkable toe and heal hooking on the hardest of routes.

As for sizing the team 5.10's its recommended to go with your street shoe size. I wear a 10.5 street, so I got the teams in 10.5. The shoe is really snug on the foot and feels like your wearing a rubber sock. The shoe wont really ever break in, so putting the shoe on 3 months later is going to feel like your putting it on for the first time. But after 30 minutes of wearing them in a day, the shoes really loosen up, but will return to being stiff.

Feels like cheating

My other shoes are the Scarpa Vapors, which are an excellent shoe, decently aggressive and asymmetrical which I bought a size and half down from street shoe which is a 9.5. The vapors have now become my comfort shoes compared to my Teams, these incredibly aggressive shoes with an amazingly sensitive down-turned toe are my shoes I put on when I need that extra edge to complete a project. I know most people go same as street shoe on the Teams but I had to up to size 10, and after having them for a few months they are broken in, and work on anything. the tiniest of micro footholds feel like ledges, and overhung walls feel like climbing slab with these shoes. I was told you should only use them for climbing the toughest problems, but I am presently in the V4 V5 range and these shoes are what have broken me out of that plateau. If you need that extra push these shoes are it. Be prepared for a tight and slightly painful shoe but feel like you might as well be cheating when you put these on.

You won't regret buying these

I wore an 8.5 in Dragons and had to move up to a 9 in the Team 5.10. The 8.5s I received first were foot crushingly small. I returned them for 9s and they are still very tight, but in a good way. They are shaping up to be better than the Dragons so far and that's saying a lot. I had trouble with the Dragons getting pulled off on difficult heel hooks even if I tied them very very tight. The teams, even though they aren't lace ups, have yet to pull off on a heel hook. They toe just as well as the Dragons and toe hook much more solidly. Next time they go on sale, I might buy another pair to have when my current ones wear out.

hi.
i've the jet7. and i'm looking for another shoe. i'm thinking about dragon and team. is it the same size for the three options?!
thank you all!

Best Answer Responded on

Jet7s size roughly the same as these and about half a size below the dragons in my experience (so if you wear say, 10 in jet7s, bump up to 10.5 in dragons). That said, you sizing up the dragons isn't completely necessary, but they'll be *very* snug if you don't.

Based on the shoes you're checking out I'm guessing you prefer aggressive bouldering styles. If you're looking at the dragons and teams I suggest you also check out the 5.10 Blackwings, they're essentially dragons with a velcro closure system. Sorry if I'm wrong!

Responded on

I had to go up 1/2 size from what I wore in the Dragons. The Team 5.10s are much tighter fitting.

Awesome for precise or overhanging problems

Pretty much like the title says. This shoe is up there with the best aggressive bouldering shoes on the market right now. The toe sticks to anything on the wall. I'm a huge fan of heel hooks, and this shoe definitely likes them too. Never any slippage within the shoe.
I wear a 10.5 street shoe and bought these as a 10.5 also, and they are TIGHT. Probably so tight because I have wide feet. After 4 months with them, they still hurt to wear for 30 minutes straight. At first, I could only wear them for about 10 minutes at a time. But, before they start to hurt, they feel absolutely great and sooo precise. Durability is good for now, but I can already definitely see some wear on the toe tips.
Being my first pair of super aggressive shoes, the Team's have definitely improved my fluidity on the wall since I practically dont even have to worry about footholds now.

Aggressive

The teams are one of fiveten's best bouldering shoes, hands down. Getting the damn shoe on your foot is a struggle, but once it's on you're ready to send like a champ. The heel cup is pretty deep, and the downturn is pretty savage. Too bad fiveten discontinued the Jet7, I much prefer the jets to these.

Responded on

They discontinued the jets?

Responded on

I heard they did, and they took them off their site, but I checked recently and they're back up, so hopefully they haven't!

Great Specialized Shoe

Picked up a pair on sale a few weeks ago for a steal and they are definitely an interesting shoe. AS was said before, very specialized shoe made more for overhanging and precise routes. I was blown away by how much these helped on some technical overhanging projects I've been working on. Rubber is wicked sticky and the thin nature of it really helps you feel the holds out with your feet and make those micro-adjustments that you need. They climb pretty well outside of that realm, but there are better options out there if you're going more vertical.
AS far as sizing goes, I had to size up 1.5 sizes for these. I'm normally a 10.5 street shoe and the 12 fit me well. I have a feeling anyone with a bit narrower feet can probably get away without sizing up as much as I did on these. Much better after a few week break in period. For reference; I'm a comfortable 43 in Scarpas.

Team 5.10 shoe

Sensitivity on this shoe is amazing, break in time sucks. While the shoe is not as snug around the instep like the solution, the rubber and heals are incredible. Shoe size is one above your street shoe and it will be tight. Break in time is about 2 weeks of average climbing (2-3 times per week). Overall, good buy and will be even better when I can stop tapeing some of my toes to keep the rub impact down. The shoe works

What size shoe should i get? i have a size 8 street shoe and wear a 39 in la sportivas.

Responded on

although i do not own these shoes, 5 of my friends do and 3 have one size down from theyre street shoes, 1 half a size down, and 1 who did 2 sizes down (if im not mistaken his toes bleed during the break in period). hope this helps

Best Answer Responded on

I sized these to my street shoe size and the knuckles on my toes were bruised after taking them on and off all day. They are a skinny shoe with a deep heel. To get an idea of downsizing, I wear a 42.5 in street shoe, I wear a 38.5 in the Solution/Testarossa.
These shoes make your feet feel like they are dipped in rubber. The break in period is rough.

I highly recommend trying these on in a local store before buying them online. Although BackCountry has an amazing return policy, it would save both parties a lot of time if you would try them on before buying.

Good luck!

how does the heel on the team 5.10 fit compared to the jet 7? how about to the testerossa or the solution?

thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Sorry I'm a year and a half late, but incase anyone else stumbles across this I hope this helps:

The jet7s and the teams have pretty similar heel cups, and the solutions have a much shallower heel. (I've never owned the testerossas so I can't really attest to that).

In general, 5.10s fit wider feet with a deep heel, and sportivas fit a narrower, more asymmetrical foot with a shallower heel.

Responded on

Real late in answering, but here it goes

The Testarosa and the Solution are both stiffer shoes than the Team or the Jet, and both have to be sized way down to be effective. I am a 44 street (10.5) and wear a 41.5 in the Testarosa, but they are TIGHT. I tried on a friends 42 Solutions and they fit well, so I'm betting I'd wear about the same in those. So, thats about 2 EURO sizes down, depending on how tight you like your shoes.

For the Jet 7, I wear a 10.5, which is my street shoe size. That said, I got them more for all day training then true "red-point" shoes, so if you want them supper aggressive go down 1/2 to a full size from your street size. The Teams run about 1/2 smaller than the Jets, so my street shoe size is perfect, aggressive, and amazing.

The heel in the Team is much more low volume than both the Solution and Jet 7 (I had dead space in both, but never had it slipping) and about the same as the Testarosa, though I feel a lot more secure with my heel in the Teams than the Testarosa.

I am a 10.5 (44 Euro) street shoe with a slightly wide toe box, though not wide enough to need wide width shoes.

just to answer my own question for anyone else. i managed to try a pair on (i wear a 40.5 in miura and miura vs) and only JUST got into the us 10 for the 510 teams. ill be ordering these in the 10 as i want them to be super techo and only want them for steep problems and roof climbing. will let you know about the run in after a while.

Responded on

just answering my own question if it will help anyone else. just got my teams in the mail in aus and put them on. got the 10's (after trying them on at a local shop) and only JUST got in them. had to use plastic bags to get my feet in but at least i can get them on and i think for this kind of shoe this sizing will be perfect. now to go try these beast out.im a 40.5 in miura and miura vs

Five Ten Team!!!

I got these shoes a couple of weeks ago, and these are me impressions so far:
Design wise, the rubber on the toes is much thinner than in the V10, which I thought was way too thick. This gives you much better feel when toe hooking, plus the small holes allows for better ventilation. The heel is great, I like that they added some rubber on the outer part, which the Dragons lacked and made heel hooking in some positions a bit painful and not very efficient. They are supper sensitive, very tiny edges on vertical walls too long make it a bit painful, but on the other hand make them amazing on overhangs, especially on small pockets. I used to have LaSportiva, but after trying Five Ten, I was hooked, the rubber has much more friction and lasts longer.
Sizing seems to be a bit of an issue in general. As a reference I wear a size 10US (EUR43 aprox.) in the Five Tean Teenie Guide (and pretty much all street shoes). In climbing shoes (all with a very snug fit for sport climbing and bouldering) I have worn: Five Ten VCs (new model) in 7,5US, LaSportiva Katana in 38 ½ EUR, LaSportiva Tesatarrossa and Venom in 39 ½ EUR, and Evolve Bandit in 8US (owned only 1 pair; rubber simply washed away in a bit over a month). I bought the Five Ten Team in 8US fearing that going a full size larger would be too much, and I must admit I was wrong, they are too small, I used those shoe stretchers but I think it would be better to get ½ size larger; I RECOMMEND A FULL SIZE LARGER THAN IN YOUR VCs!!!
