    Guide Tennie Approach Shoe

    While some approaches barely involve an approach at all, should you encounter a multi-mile hike out to your chosen crag, the Five Ten Guide Tennie is a worthy choice. This low-profile, lightweight shoe has a Stealth C4 sole—the same ultra-sticky rubber that's found on Five Ten climbing shoes. This shoe's incredible friction will make the approach slabs to Half Dome a walk in the park. Whether you're making a quick run up another North Cascades ridge climb or slacklining in Camp 4, your feet will be happy in the Guide Tennie.

    • Stay comfortable as you approach in this durable shoe
    • Rubber toe enhances performance on inclined surfaces
    • Water-resistant leather defends against wet trails
    • Stiff midsole provides stability and control on mixed terrain
    • Mesh lining keeps air circulating for temperature control

    Best Approach Shoes

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:Runs small
    Size Bought10.5

    Weight154 lbs

    My third pair of Tennies, but this new version runs way smaller than previous versions. I was wearing a 9.5 for previous pairs - had to return and upgrade to 10.5 for this one.

    I already have a pair size 11. A little snug, but great for more technical approaches or warm-up routes up to 5.9. So I ordered 11.5 and the shoes are smaller than the 11’s. Makes no sense. I would like to try a larger size but of course now they’re out of stock. Not sure how to rate the newer shoes (durability and performance)Based on my older pair..

    fit and design has changed

    Size Bought11 med
    Height5` 10"
    Weight145 lbs

    Seems to me they've shifted the design and fit more toward a hiker and less toward a climber. I've owned several pairs of Guide Tennies over the years. This latest model does not fit me as well as previous ones. I ordered a size 11 and it fits like a 10.5. The heel and cuff are now more padded, like a skate shoe, and the toe box is roomier. Wide feet may like these changes. My low-volume ones do not. I am returning them so won't be able to try them on the rock but my sense is they will not climb as well. I guess I'll try to resole my old ones...
