Your key to the vertical world.
The Five Ten Women’s Gambit VCS Climbing Shoe, like a good climbing partner, will be right there with you, from your first day at the climbing gym to your first day climbing outdoors. Designed with beginner-to-intermediate climbers in mind, the stiff midsole, neutral shape, and rounded toe box will quickly help you squash the rumor that climbing shoes have to be uncomfortable. The perforated Ariaprene tongue lets your feet breathe on those days where the heat index keeps all but the most die-hards off the wall. Thanks to the lined leather upper, the Gambit VCS will break in seamlessly, but with minimal stretch to maintain the fit of the shoe, and the two hook-and-loop straps make for easy on and off.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got these as my first pair of climbing shoes. The angle of them isn't too aggressive for a new climber like me. I got a half size down so they fit super snug. Excellent grip when I went bouldering with them.
