Description

Go-to amphibious footwear.

Amphibious athletes know the importance of taking care of their feet, and so does Five Ten. That's why it designed the Water Tennie Shoe, a fully functional shoe that takes you straight from paddling through class IV rapids to adventurous side hikes without missing a beat. If previous water shoes have left you scarred, don't worry; the Water Tennie puts floppy wannabes to shame.
  • Synthetic mesh and neoprene upper resists water saturation while encouraging ventilation
  • Drainage holes allow for quick release of water so you don't slog around extra weight
  • AquaStealth rubber offers superior traction while reducing the risk of trench foot
  • Rubber toecap protects from rocks and debris

Canyoneering Comfort

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

Bought these based on a friend's recommendation for canyoneering, and I've used them on several full-day trips thus far. They're GREAT. They're so sticky, I'm throwing out my climbing shoes because they're no longer good enough! I didn't mind hiking and climbing in them all day, but note that the sole is not very stiff. You may want to buy half size large to use in conjunction with neoprene socks while in the water, and wool socks while hiking.

Nothing can compare

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

Simply put - if you are a kayaker or doing any kind of hiking on slippery rock surfaces, nothing will ever compare to the grip of these shoes. More people hurt themselves scouting rapids rather than the running the rapid itself.

At first I was really put off by the price, so I tried many different styles and brands, but in the end I went with FiveTens. Save yourself the time and this is one piece of equipment that is well worth the investment. The high tops won't come off your foot like other water shoes and will hold up while hiking / bushwhacking.

[One tip] - I would get a half size larger than normal and wear a water sock underneath for warmth and blisters (if hiking a lot)

Would these make a good SCUBA diving shoe?...

Would these make a good SCUBA diving shoe? That being: used with a neoprene sock insert, possibly a wool sock, and dive fins (specifically hog fins or jet fins).

Responded on

My only concern would be that you may not have enough flex in the ankle to properly use fins, but it's a pretty low rise so you should be ok there. Other than that, it's certainly durable and water-friendly enough to be a dive shoe, and if you do get out somewhere and walk around it'll grip wet rock like a champ.

Great Shoe

I just used these shoes for some canyoneering adventures. They held up very well against the challenges of both Behunin and Srpy canyon at Zion. The rubber is super sticky and the high top helps against that Zion sand from getting in the boot. The boots are lighter weight and very comfortable. The one negative critique would be the excess space in the heel box. All and all it's a terrific shoe.

Good shoe, not for burly adventures

Basically, the shoe is pretty solid. I'm happy with most of its resilience and definitely with the look of it. But the insole (I guess that's the right word, the part on the inside of the shoe) slips around a lot. The ankle support is weak. Not real different than wearing a tennis shoe, but holds up against being constantly wet better. Holds a lot of water to dump into the kayak later, but does drain well...eventually.

Check out Chaco Tedinho Pro's. They dump water and beat out the five ten's in nearly all aspects. Great ankle support, and high tops keep sand out as well. (50% off most Chacos, Tedinho Pros included, this week) :)

Use with wool socks

My main purpose for these is wading creeks/rivers for fishing with no waders, just shorts. I tried neoprene socks but they tended to let gravel in as they did not fill up the space between sock and top of the shoe. Gravel guards or short gaiters would probably work...however, I found a heavy wool sock to work well and prevents most gravel coming in.

I was wading granite Sierra streams and they performed very well on both wet and dry granite and are a pretty good shoe for hiking in....but a for super long hike ins, I used my regular hiking shoes.
