    Designed specifically for deep and narrows slots.

    The Five Ten Men's Canyoneer 3 Shoes' hydrophobic upper, quick-draining design, and ultra-sticky soles make them a solid choice for canyoneering. A combination of mesh, welded rubber, and TPU help these shoes battle water when you have to wade through the cold and smelly remains of flash-floods, and the Stealth S1 rubber soles provide the Shoes with the traction you need when stemming narrow slots. New to the Canyoneer 3 is an asymmetric lace closure system with mesh pocket which is simple and dependable in canyons. Although Five Ten made these shoes for technical canyoneering, the shoes have also found a solid following with both rafters and whitewater kayakers.

    Fall apart

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

    I start to use them a two monts ago, all weekends and they star to fall apart, compare to the first two models this are the worst investment for canyoneering. The only part I like is the good grip in wet canyons, but bad support for the ankle than the first two. They let some little pebbles get inside easily because the material, you need to clean them often when you are using them. I have some pics if you want to see what I m saying.

    Fall apart

    Used for fly fishing..

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    I haven't worn them for canyoneering yet, but took them in the river a few times over fishing waders. They're super light-weight and comfortable, so seemingly so far so good. Grips well on wet rock.

    Don't waste your money.

    Stealth rubber soles have very good grip (but not as good as the older Canyoneer 2)

    Everything else!

    As a canyoning guide I put a lot of miles on my shoes in a short time. I've had many pairs of every generation of the Fiveten Canyoneers, and they have always had durability issues. Peeling soles, breaking buckles, material wearing through at the ball of the foot...they just don't last very long. The new version, in addition to retaining all the same durability issues (except now you have lace loops breaking instead of buckles) is less comfortable, has less grip on wet rock, and most annoyingly, the top of the shoe no longer closes tightly around the ankle, so it basically acts a funnel for any sand or gravel that you walk through. Enjoy lots of stones in your shoes? Great, buy these.
    In the past, I've dealt with the durability issues because there was no other option, no other shoes had the same grip. Now, however, Adidas have purchased Fiveten, so they now have access to Stealth rubber for their own shoes. While the Adidas Hydro shoes have some issues as well, they seem to be far ahead of the Fivetens in durability, and now they are even or perhaps better in the grip department.

    Please don't encourage Fiveten to keep producing this terrible product by wasting your hard earned money on it.

    Awesome canyon shoe - for women too!

    From a short walk up the Zion Narrows to a multi-day, technical canyoneering trip, Five Ten really delivers with their boots. For years the Canyoneer Shoe has been my go-to for every trip I've taken that involves sloshing through water, slogging through sand, and balancing on sandstone. Although they are designed for men, I've found they work just fine for my needs. These shoes offer extremely solid ankle support (which comes in handy when your next step is hidden in the murky depths of a pothole) as well as a thick sole that helps eliminate some of the pain and bruising from underfoot debris. The sole grips even on wet slickrock and the buckle system is much easier to navigate than wet laces.

    These shoes run pretty much true to size but there are two things to consider. First, these shoes are WIDE. For me, the width allows for a little more blood circulation in cold and wet conditions. The downside is that for people with narrow feet (hey ladies!), this can mean sliding and rubbing on the approach. The second thing to consider is that you'll probably want to pair these with some neoprene socks - you will definitely need to size up to accommodate their bulk, but remember that they will loosen up when wet so a bit of a tight fit dry isn't a bad thing.

    The only downside to these shoes are their weight and bulk which, while perfectly fine for more technical canyons, can be cumbersome and uncomfortable for longer periods of hiking out of water.

    All in all, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option for your canyon footwear than Five Ten. For women, pairing these shoes with an insole, neoprene socks, and sock liners can successfully offset the width and provide a comfortable, supportive shoe.

    Great shoe for whitewater adventures

    • Fit: True to size

    After two solid seasons of abuse, they're still holding strong. I've done plenty of scouting and sketchy portages in these shoes, and they inspire more confidence and trust when walking on wet rocks with the kayak shouldered. They also provide a good stable platform, and drain more than good enough.

    The only slight negative about these shoes is the bulk they add, meaning if you have a tight fit in your boat, you might not be able to use these shoes.

    Add an after-market insole

    • Fit: Runs large

    If you have narrow feet

    Iike me, add a bulky aftermarket insole. That will take up more width and provide more comfort on log hikes. Bomber, heavy boot that doesn't have an equal in canyoneering, yet.

    Holy S@#%!

    The first time I tried out these shoes, I was absolutely blown away! They are incredibly sticky. INCREDIBLY! I found myself wandering around Zion walking up things that would make a mountain goat think twice! I wore them guiding canyons and had to constantly remind myself that normal shoes can't go where these shoes go. From slick wet sandstone to mossy boulders; you name it, these shoes will stick to it.

    Also, these bad boys can take a beating! Canyon after canyon, scree slope after scree slope, they just keep on tickin'. I have had to replace the insoles and re-glue one of the toe pieces, but after all that they've been through, they're holding up pretty dang well. They also work great for wading boots.

    They run pretty true to size, but I would recommend getting at least a size bigger to accommodate neoprene socks.

    These aren't just great shoes for canyoneering, they're the BEST shoes for canyoneering. Period!

    Great Canyoneering Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size

    This shoe works great when your digging your heals into the smallest of cracks. The grip on these shoes is reason alone to buy them. When your 50ft off the ground with your back on one wall and your feet planted on the other wall it's nice when you can trust your shoes not to slip. These soles work just as good if not better when they're wet too. Another great feature about these is the heel. They designed these to take one hell of a beating. The heel is wrapped about halfway up the back of the shoes in a hard rubber of sorts. So when your walking through the small cracks jamming your heel in so you don't slip and fall these shoes won't fall apart after a couple canyons.

    Excels at everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Update after ~2 years of very frequent use: The front of the sole has begun to peel back, and the sole is almost worn through. I have used these shoes more or less 3-5 times/week in the summer, mostly on boulders and face-scrambling, but occasionally in cracks. The stitching is coming out and the rand is cracking and peeling off on the sides. I'd say I've abused them a lot (I put 100 miles on them in the last 2 months alone) and these issues are to be expected. They held up far longer than comparable approach shoes or hiking boots used similarly and have performed much better. I have (this summer) been backpacking (8-16 mile days) in these and have yet to get a blister, which amazes me. To be brief, I'll try to glue them, but if they are actually done, I'm buying a new pair without hesitation.

    I'm a geomorphologist who works in a lot of high gradient bedrock streams, so I need to be able to keep a good footing while taking measurements or climb up/rappel down the occasional waterfall. I have been using approach shoes, but these seem to be much more tailored for river work. They drain very well and the rubber on these is exactly what I expect from c4: superb stickiness. The neoprene uppers won't dry fast, but that's obviously to be expected. The footbed that comes with the shoe is perforated, so that drains nicely. I wear these with some 3mm neoprene socks and did not have to change from my usual street shoe size (13). They are a bit stiffer than I usually like for my approach shoes, but that's a reasonable tradeoff for reducing a lot of the foot fatigue that usually accompanies walking on cobbles all day. The straps are very stiff, making them a bit tough to get tight, but that's really not an issue for me. I wear them a bit loose and have not experienced any hot spots yet. The upside of the heavy straps is that I feel they will take some serious abuse, along with almost any other part of this very well made shoe.

    the only canyoning shoe...

      these shoes are brilliant for what they are designed to be...fine for approach hike, stick like the proverbial to rocks, wet or dry - the soles on these shoes have no equal...the boot is heavy tho - just look at the amount of rubber and rear lug/heal support (remember these are a canyoning boot!), so not optimal for long hikes ie. 5+ miles...BUT as a fully functioning water shoe...i don't think they have an equal...with neoprene socks, there's not too much water that can stop them. Used throughout WWR/canyoning season in Japan - flawless. highly recommend. Fit is high volume, so if a narrower less arched foot, suggest a half size smaller, even if planning on neoprene socks to accompany.


        These are basically the best shoe available for canyoneering, but have some flaws. They are bulky, and are definitely designed for those with high volume feet. Sizing can be tricky, especially if you plan to not always wear neoprene socks. I recently did a trip through Death Hollow in Utah, going through basically everything except snow (timber, sand, wet and dry canyon, etc.) and only wore the Canyoneers. They are a little heavy if you are doing high miles, but for sticking to wet or dry canyon walls or stream beds, they are perfect. I had to punch new holes in the straps since my feet aren't high volume, but the straps worked well overall.

        Been Using these for Years!

          I've been using these shoes for the past 3 years and I love them! I use them while Hiking, Rappelling down waterfalls, Canyoneering in wet and dry canyons, and Rafting! I wear a pair of 5mm neoprene socks that keep my feet warm and also protect against blisters! There is a lot of room in there so it you have narrow feet they will most likely slid around inside, but that really doesn't bother me too much.

          Best Water Shoes Ever

            I have bough six pairs of water shoes (Teva and Columbia) prior to stumble upon the Five Ten Canyoneering 2 shoes on one of my trips. The leader of the trip also is a member of local search and rescue and this is what the pros wore.

            When I got home, I read up all reviews and found out these are the shoes people rent on Zion Subway trips. I also read that you need to wear a neoprene socks with this (preferable the 5MM thickness).

            I wear size 10.5 and bought a pair that is 10.5, however, after the 5MM neoprene socks, it was too tight and exchanged it for size 11. Now it is comfortable with the 5MM neoprene socks.

            Today I went on an 11-mile hike with a total of 16 water crossings. These shoes performed more than I can hope for. It is worth every penny. When in the water, these shoes had a great gripping power even over the slippery rocks. When on trail, with the 5mm neoprene socks, it became a comfortable hiking boots. Lots of ankle support and gripping power when scrambling over rocks. No worries about blasters in wet socks. I would highly recommend these shoes for anyone go on a trip need water crossing and hiking without have to change shoes after each crossing.

            Best Canyoneering Shoe Period

              What can I say but Wow. This is by far and away the best Canyoneering shoe ever made. The sole is super sticky. The show is built bomber. Water drains quickly and the show dries quickly also. You will be wearing these with neoprene socks, so try them on with them. I have combed 5.9 in them and they where the next best thing to a climbing shoe. I would advise trying them with a 2mm pair and a 5mm. It is a good combo because you will be covered for weather water and colder water.

                Best Canyoneering Shoe Period

                Maybe not for women?

                  I am 5'9, and I wear a 42.5 shoe. That is a man's 9.5 or a womans's 11. The 11/9.5 was slightly short, and a bit wide. I wouldn't risk it as I'd end up with toe trauma. The 43 was OK in the length but the boot was too wide. On the tightest buckle, my foot was still moving in the boot. I had to send them back.

                  Great shoe, just not for me

                    This shoe looked very sturdy and well made. Great sole and I liked the materials used on the upper. Plus it just looks cool. However, I am a girl, and this is definitely a man's shoe. Even with a thick sock, the shoe was impossibly wide for me. Also, I was unable to tighten the top of the shoe securely enough around my ankle to prevent my foot from flopping around. Overall, way to big for a female foot/leg. Because there are apparently no water- canyoneering shoes in women's sizes, at least not that I could find, I ended up going with the men's Keen gorge boot. Still pretty wide in the toe box, but at least I am able to tighten the top enough that I think it'll work. Haven't had a chance to backpack with them yet, but am looking forward to trying!

                    Five Ten Canyoneer

                      The Five Ten Men's Canyoneer is a premier wet water canyoning shoe that friends also use for river hiking, kayaking/padalling, etc. My only complaint is narrow feet do not fit well. You can help fill out the space wearing thick 5mm wetsuit socks.

                      The Best Wet Canyoneering Shoe Ever!

                        The Canyoneer 2 Shoe has not changed for a few years because how change you change something that is already the best! 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!

                        Is there a reason doesn't sell the smaller size (size 7) of this shoe? Women like canyoneering too!
