Steep caves and horizontal roofs won’t leave you begging for slab when you’re wearing the Five Ten Men’s Quantum VCS Climbing Shoe. When you’re making big, powerful moves in the upside down you’ll thank your lucky stars for the aggressive downturn, high asymmetrical curvature, and Stealth C4 rubber that enhance precision and friction on even the smallest of footholds.
A fully-synthetic upper will ensure that you won’t ever be subject to that sloppy, unprecise feel that some climbing shoes get after they stretch out a few sizes. But don’t let the fact that there’s no stretch lead you to believe that your feet will be uncomfortable. The Quantum VCS boasts a wider fit than any of Five Ten’s other aggressive shoes so your feet will sit in a more natural position, and you won’t feel the need to tear off your shoes after every burn.
What does all this comfort and precise fit matter if your feet are sweating buckets? Well they’re not, because the tongue of the Quantum VCS is made of perforated Ariaprene, providing supreme breathability. When your feet finally do need a break, the two hook-and-loop closure straps open wide for easy off.

- Q & A
Great bouldering/sport climbing shoe
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are great. Much like the hiangles I’ve had in the past. Nice thick rubber all around. Should last for a little while. Sizing was spot on. I’ve worn an 11 in Anasazis and hiangles and these fit just like them. Extra rubber on toe makes toe hooks a breeze. Would highly recommend.
Theyâre solid. They perform. Theyâre comfortable. They were true to size (I wear a size 13). They grip great. They slip on and off easy and have no hot spot issues. Not sure how they did all that. Definitely would recommend.
