Gambit VCS Climbing Shoe
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.

Great Shoe, Hole After 8 Months
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 4"
- 128 lbs
I purchased these shoes in August 2019 as my first set of climbing shoes. I usually wear a 7/7.5 so I ordered a 7.5. They were tight at first but after a couple of climbs, they felt comfortable. I really enjoy them but the reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they already have a hole on the toe and it hasn't even been a year since I've had them. I use them about 2-3 times a week for indoor climbing and I just expected them to last longer. Their grip has been great though! I can't convince myself to spend as much as I did on another pair so I'll be looking for cheaper options. All in all a great shoe but I don't recommend paying full price for them.

Great All Around Climbing Shoe
- I've used it several times
I got these to replace my old favorite shoes that I have had for YEARS. I am very picky about my climbing shoes, and these have fit the bill so far. They were pretty tight to start, but have formed to my foot quickly. Solid grip, not too aggressive, and easy on-and-off velcro for those days when your hanging at the crag. Great go-to shoe for anything from gym climbing to long multi-pitches. And the color is BEAUTIFUL. All around a win!

- 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.
