The higher the angle...
You could spend the rest of your life at overhung crags ticking projects off with a lot of help from the Five Ten Men's Hiangle Climbing Shoe. The Hiangle might be the comfiest shoe in Five Ten's aggressive lineup and is designed to keep your foot comfy as you hang-dog, suss out beta, and go for redpoints. This shoe is also the stiffest option thanks to its thick Stealth C4 rubber sole that assures long-lasting traction for gripping anything from plastic jugs to limestone edges.

These shoes are great at just about everything. From climbing scary slab routes at Smith Rock, to thuggy boulder problems in Joes Valley, these things will help you send. Of course it all depends on personal preference and foot sizing, so try them on before you buy, but I've found no need to bring any other shoe to the crag. I wear a street shoe size 9 and find these to be a "comfy" fit in mens 8s. The only downside with the older version was the Smurf feet, but that seems to have been corrected in the new version.
I've always been a big fan of 5.10 and this shoe is just another one to add to the arsenal! Myself being primarily a boulderer I find these to be great for hooking on overhanging problems and stiff enough for slabs. The biggest issue I had at first is due to my longer middle toe and the sensitivity I had on the knuckle. The pain subsides after wear and break in and becomes very comfortable. I sized down one whole size from my street shoe (US11) and couldn't be happier!
