Highly stiff, highly angled, high possibility of sends.
Five Ten knows you like your climbing shoes tight, it keeps you on the wall on the tiniest of foot chips. That's how the Hiangle Synthetic Climbing Shoe was born. Built with a synthetic outer, this climbing shoe promises the right fit and won't stretch on you. So the first time you try your project and the last time when you send it, you'll have the same tightness and stiffness in your Hiangles as if they were brand new. The classic Stealth rubber sole is just what you need to match your newly totally fitted uppers; the perfect formula for sends. And although stiff and not stretchy, the Hiangle has a creased toebox so your feet will have room to flex just enough that you don't have to break all your toenails every time you climb.

- Q & A
Unparalleled Comfort and Performance
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Sizing: I wear US M 9 street shoe size, US M 9 Butora Acro Wide, US M 8.5 Instinct VS, and US M 8.5 Synthetic Hiangle. I fit my climbing shoes for no dead space in the heel and toes properly curled in the front - not bone crushingly tight. I also have wide feet.
I only do gym bouldering and sport climbing and I find these to be very comfortable (actually, the most comfortable aggressive shoe I've owned), yet perform well. The initial fit was tight on the outsides of my feet, but felt great for my toes. After a few sessions, the shoe has stretched out quite nicely and feels very comfortable.
Finally, a comfortable downturned shoe!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
My background: Started climbing years ago, currently climb in the gym 3-4 days/week, climb outdoors several times a year. I've worn Dragons, Blackwings, Teams, Verdons, Blancos, and Moccasyms in the past.
I've been climbing in this shoe for about a month, and it's become one of my favorite climbing shoes for sure. Comfortable out of the box (street shoe 9.5, got these in a 9.5), big fan the synthetic upper - hasn't stretched at all on me, even after a month of consistent wear.
I wonder if more companies will start to make both leather and synthetic versions of their same popular models. . kinda a schweet idea.
