    For a life more vertical.

    The Five Ten Men's Camp Four Shoes provide the comfort for dirtbagging around the Valley, enough durability for hiking around Tuolumne, and sticky soles for crushing low 5th class (or harder, if you're feeling strong). The PU heel cup and internal shank support your ankles as you work your way down the burly East Ledges descent with a loaded haul bag on your back, and the EVA midsole cushions your foot when you're knocking out long approaches on the way to wild climbs. Of course, the Camp Four uses Five Ten's famous C1 Stealth rubber for grip, and has a lace-to-tongue closure that lets you leave the toe loose for hiking or tighten it up when you need to toe in on steeper rock.

    Weird Shape and Construction

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large

    I'll start off by saying that I have wide feet and after loving the Guide Tennies I was hoping I would love this shoe as Guide's more hiking-oriented brother. Unfortunately no. They are shaped like a brick inside and out. Not only is the foot bed super wide but also super tall. I had to fully cinch down the laces in order to somewhat prevent my foot from wobbling around inside (and I do have wide feet). Furthermore the material/construction of the uppers is very rigid. This results in the shoes creasing around upper lace holes as you walk and creating pressure points. Bummer, it looked promising. I cannot imagine how some reviewers climbed technical rock and fifth class, may be if you fit it like a climbing shoe 2 sizes smaller with your toes curled under, but no way does it feel secure in your normal size on any but flat terrain.

    Very bad quality

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

    Two years ago I found a good discount on Backcountry and bought an extra pair of Camp Four to keep in stock, because I already had another pair.

    They were kept all this time in a fresh and dry enviroment.

    Last week used them for the first time, and after only one use (a 14 miles approach walk in the argentinean Andes) the soles unglued almost completely.

    As you can see on the pictures, the shoes are in perfect condition, except for the soles dissasembled.

    Very bad quality

    Terrible quality!

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

    I have had a pair of these for 3 months (new 2015 version). They are of terrible quality!! They are literally falling apart after 3 months. Pull on tabs tore apart after a month, rands started delaminating after 2 months and the soles are now shredded! A $150+ shoe should last a bit longer...don't you think?

    Five ten needs to quit outsourcing to China. I know people who beta test their shoes. All of the pre production shoes are made in their Redlands CA facility and hold up very well during testing. they send the production runs to China and the shoes that come back are of terrible quality and litterally can start falling apart on the first day of use (see the new canyoneer III). Bring the manufacturing home! I'll pay a little extra for the American labor and the higher quality.

    Great multi-use shoe, even for ladies!

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

    Yeah, this is a men's shoe. I bought a men's shoe. And I love this shoe.

    I had scarpa approach shoes previously, and was really less than enthused with them. In the scarpa shoes, I found the footbed to be too narrow and the shoe itself to be far too long - when I sized down, it was like squeezing my foot into my climbing shoe. Approach shoes are intended to have the comfort of a hiking shoe, but capability and agility of a climbing shoe. Which, I wasn't finding in Scarpa.

    Things changed when I discovered this shoe! A friend of mine had them and raved about them. So, I took the plunge. This is the perfect approach shoe - it's perfectly accommodating in all the best ways. The toe box has ample room, much like a hiking shoe however it has the dynamic capabilities of a climbing shoe. The heel cradle is amazing - I feel so stable on skree and loose soils. The grip is also incredible. The downside is the little toe cap in the front has started to delaminate: but that's what super glue is for!

    One thing is for sure, these shoes aren't sloppy - they stay on your feet! They're great in most dry conditions. They take a long, long, long time to dry if they get soaked. The arch support is perfect, and once the insert wears out I'll throw in some super feet. I couldn't be happier with these shoes.

    I've hiked all over Colorado, Montana and New England in these shoes. I've never done any overnight trips in them, but I speculate that they'll hold up well.

    I strongly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a versatile everyday-sidewalk-to-mountain-top shoe.

    Great shoes!!!

    I bought the shoes originally to use as good approach shoes for rockclimbing. I use the shoes in Thailand and then booked a trip to Kathmandu Nepal. I wound up wearing issues on a 12 day trek in the Annapurna circuit and they were awesome. I'm still wearing them since I returned and have done away with wearing my old heavy leather hiking boots. The rubber on the bottom sticks really well and overall very pleased they're really comfortable. them instead of my heavy old hiking boots.

    Great shoes!!!

    The best hiking approach shoe ever made.

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

    After 400 miles, this has been one of the best approach shoes I've ever owned. Even though the edging profile in the toebox isn't as defined as shoes like the La Sportiva Boulder X, this shoe more than makes up for that with it's super sticky sole, supportive heel, and great footbed.

    Unlike most approach shoes, this shoe feels amazing when hiking even with a heavy pack on--they give plenty of support, and are a real confidence-booster on uneven terrain.

    While I would never use this shoe for climbing harder than 5.7 (I've soloed Mount Olympus in Utah in them a few times--they did just fine for that), they're easily the best hiking approach shoes I've ever owned. They do great on long pack-ins, technical canyons, and other peak bagging adventures. Great shoe.

    Great shoe for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I used these out in Zion, and was extremely pleased. My pack was <10 pounds most of the time, but my feet never once felt under supported. I bought these specifically for the recommended tread stickiness. I was happy with their performance hiking off trial during random snow and rain.

    I would agree with other reviewers for hiking with these get .5 size bigger.

    Best shoe for my use

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

    For at least 5 years I've been looking for a shoe that would isolate the trail rocks from pounding my feet, would not cause blisters, had sticky soles, were relatively light compared to a boot, would fit my wide foot, would breath and dry out when wet and were not waterproof (which is synonymous with hot). These are just great shoes. I routinely switch out the insoles with Polysorb by Sendco which are much better that the insoles delivered with any shoe including these Camp Four shoes. I don't need ankle protection even when carrying a 45 pound pack so these are perfect. I just returned from a rugged 8 day trip in the Sierra's with lots of talus walking and they stick to the rock extremely well. I can't say enough about these shoes. I ordered 1/2 size larger and that was a perfect fit.

    Really poor performance.

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

    So I got these and broke them in over 2weeks. First thing I noticed was I felt like I was in high heels (I'm guessing what wearing heels is like). So a 12 hour day into Mount Conness and out turned into a lesson of enduring foot pain! Hot spots through my whole forefoot,rubbing on my ankle bone, and horrible traction when not on the bell of the foot. I slipped many times edging on the outer edge.

    Worst was the heels. No stability. I rolled my ankles multiple times and was lucky to not hurt myself.

    Long and short,look elsewhere, like La Sportiva; I am!


      I've been wearing these shoes pretty much everywhere for the past year and a half, and they are still in fantastic shape, despite my genuine efforts to beat the crap out of them. They've hiked in the Tetons, off-widthed in Wisconsin, and lead 5.10a in East Tennessee. The rubber is awesome for climbers looking at tough approaches and/or easy climbs. They don't offer great ankle support, but if you're somewhere that doesn't require too much off trail hiking, these are perfect. Lightweight, really comfy, and durable as hell. Love 'em.


      camp 4 - best shoe ever

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      these will last you longer than any shoe you have ever bought - from pub crawls to boulder prob nightmares look no further, really my 3rd pair in 10 years - and one I gave to a Nepalese sherpa - he actually kinda stole them....

      Great light hikers for technical terrain

        Okay, these might not be a "pure" approach shoe, but they are fantastic as a hiking shoe.

        I was on a multi-day trip in the Sierra where I was hiking up and down through boulder fields routinely. The Camp Fours are SO awesome on this kind of technical terrain where slipping could have serious implications. You can put actual miles on them too...they are comfy with good stiffness so you don't feel every little rugosity on the trail.

        I have had mine over a year and they look almost brand new. They are burly.

        The only bummer is one lace sorta shredded (the outer layer of the lace came off but the inner layer has hung tough for many more miles). Hey, 5.10 is sending me a new set of laces for free.

        Camp Fours

          Good all around shoes. Climbed a 5.7 in them and they were ok. Again, not good at edging but either am I so...
          Leather separated from sole, almost like it was cut. Five Ten is taking care of me. More of a heavier shoe (compared to a running shoe)but I am a flat footed clunker so I like the extra support. They were great on half dome (trail). Just enough cush and support and you can cinch them up pretty well to fit your foot. A bit spendy but if you lookin for a decent all around hiker/approach show that's a bit more beefy, check them out.

          Camp Four Shoes

            Pretty sweet. It's winter in Colorado right now so haven't scrambled any peaks in them yet. Did about 50 miles in the very rugged Gila wilderness is southwestern New Mexico and they preformed quite well on the class 4 terrain. Also went sport climbing will down there and got lazy towards the end of the day and decided to just keep them on for a few 5.8 leads to set up a top rope for some new-bees. Improvements: a gortex model would be killer! Did some hiking the other day and on north slopes there was about 4-6in of snow. My feet never got wet but certainly would have if they were exposed a little longer. Last comment is about the sole. I dig it and it gets the job done but this shoe would be unsurpassed if the sole was more rigid. When free soloing class 4 through 5.7 or so the better a shoe edges the more comfortable I am. Stiffen the sole and make them gortex and I will never buy another shoe.

            Camp Four Shoes

            Tanks for feet

              And about as maneuverable. Like their cousins the five ten canyoneers, these shoes feel like tanks on your feet but they suck in water. Mine shrunk so badly from water crossings that they don't fit anymore. They also wear weird on the backs of my ankles. I have to say though, these shoes will take a beating, but they will also beat you up in the process. I picked them up for canyoneering but I lost the articulation in my ankle when I wore them making it very hard to stem through the narrow stuff.

              Just a skate shoe with fancy rubber

                I have these big chunky fellas and although the rubber is the best, the upper is junk. These are pretty much a glorified frumpy skate shoe. In no way is this a technical shoe. They uppers are so tall and stuffed with unnecessary padding that they roll and bend so poorly when you're on anything at an angle, the wholes on the side of these leather uppers let sand, snow, debris in. To top it off next years price on these are going to be $155. If quality isn't an issue and you're only in it for the rubber then these shoes will be perfect for you. Myself on the other hand would expect a shoe at its current price point to exhibit strong attention to detail--these shoes are far from that. They are made in china, they often vary in size and shape from left to right foot. Other than the rubber, i see these as just a trend that will go away once someone else creates a real grown up version of it. I normally don't rip on a company like this but dude...these shoes are a joke.

                the perfect shoe?

                  You are spot on about this shoe. I live in the sierra nevada mountains. I've worn these shoes almost every day for over a year, when much of the time I would have been in hiking boots. The only times I didn't wear these was when I was in ski boots or sorrels (due to deep powder). They have excellent traction on ice and hard pack snow as well as rock. These shoes were perfect for an ascent of Mt. Ritter from my house, which involved hiking in with a three day pack, rope, harness, sleeping bag, etc. They worked well with strap on alpine crampons for the snow field and climbed great on the 3rd class rock. Heavy? I don't think so when compared with the alternative- a light mountaineering/hiking boot. Did I mention they have great support for hiking with a load? Better than many high top boots, due to the heel wrapping rubber .

                  Made for Wide Feet

                    I was recently in search of a replacement for my old approach shoe. I am a fan of Five Ten so I though I would give this shoe a try.

                    - Super sticky rubber
                    - Durable construction

                    - Heavy/bulky
                    - Very wide last

                    I ended up returning them because they didn't fit my foot shape at all. I have a narrow heal so while the forefoot was great, even with the laces cinched as tight as possible, my heal slid around a lot.

                    I think this would have been a solid shoe aside from how it fit my foot. It is still a bit heavier than I would have wanted though, so if I were to rate it without considering fit, I would have given four stars.

                    In the end I went with the La Sportiva Fireblade ( Technically a trail runner, but super light with very good traction.

                    What is it for?

                      Good rubber, but that's about it.

                      I can't really figure out what the shoe should be used for. It's too bulky to be a light descent/approach shoe. It has super poor edging control and a lack of touch. I would say it's a good hiking shoe, but then again, the thickness and center of the balance of the shoe is off so you'll be rolling your ankles with heavy loads. The heavy duty design is not at all waterproof (but doesn't claim to be) so if you're doing any serious adventures and you encounter some water you're in big trouble.

                      It's not quite good enough to climb comfortably in the fifth class and isn't a good hiker is the bottom line.

                      Yes.. These are Great!

                        Very light compared to my old leather hikers, also the sole grips any hard surface, like spiderman. These are comfortable enough to wear anywhere. I can walk up or down a rock incline as easily as on a flat surface. These are exactly as good as the ad says.

                        Unanswered Question

                        I am looking a pair of 5.10 camp four approach shoes to replace my current pair that have lasted five/six years. Can you tell me what year this model is? Also, some of the reviews said the soles would come unglued - is that happening with the year/model that you are showing? Just wondering if the quality has been impacted since I bought my last pair. Thanks. Jeff
