    A cost-efficient way to transfer everything you learned in the gym to outdoor climbing.

    Five Ten designed its Rogue VCS Climbing Shoe for beginning climbers who want to transfer what they've learned on plastic to outdoor rock. Just because it's inexpensive doesn't mean it's cheap on performance. Five Ten used the same last as its Stonelands shoe for a natural, relaxed fit that beginners crave while they learn how to step up on a jib or smear over slabs. The Rogue features a breathable split grain leather upper material that will conform to your foot while you climb for a glove-like fit, but be weary on sizing because this shoe can stretch up to a full size over time. Its hook-and-loop closure allows you to put this shoe on quickly and take it off easily. Five Ten also used its classic Stealth C4 rubber for excellent edging and high friction on greasy foot holds.

    The Rogue features technologies that help beginners learn the basics of climbing without the discomfort of average climbing shoes. Its Active Arch Technology ensures a secure foot position within the shoe so your foot doesn't ride up to the front and squish your toes or fall back into the heal and prevent toe-ins on tiny features. The Comfort Range Slingshot across the heel gives your foot a snug fit without sacrificing comfort so you can focus on learning how to edge properly without worrying about whether or not your toes will be there when you take your shoes off.

    Weird sizing

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I returned these shoes because the sizing is super weird for my feet. Once I found my size in length there was still a lot of room above my toes. Maybe I just have weird feet but I feel like you would have to have taller feet for this design.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I bought these shoes about six months ago, and have been bouldering in them quite a bit (2-3 times a week). Slowly but surely, they started turning the heels and toes of my feet blue.

    After probably 50 or so sessions, they started to smell pretty bad, so I did what any good lazy person does: I grabbed some baking soda from the fridge and went to town. This is when things REALLY started to get out of hand. I would take my feet out after a long day at the gym and they would be completely blue! The photo I've attached is from yesterday.

    The funny thing is, I really can't give these shoes lower than four stars. They are pretty great beginner shoes. They have broken in beautifully, they fit my feet like a glove, and they have taken me from from v1s to v3s without ever feeling held back.

    So who knows? How much do you like blue feet? If you were wondering, it does come off in the shower at least. I'm sure actual self-contained shoe deodorizers would prevent the runaway smurf effect, though they did color my feet a little bit even before I dumped baking soda in them.

    Not brad

    • Size Bought: 9.6

    Decent non aggressive all day shoe. After yr plus toes wearing through which is to be expected. Feet sweat alot and dye makes my feet blue.

    Street shoe 10
    Rogue 9.5 fits loose compared to my 41.5 solutions.

    I'd size down .5 from street shoe maybe more

    Great Beginner Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This shoe is pretty flat and the leather allows for a good amount of stretch so someone getting used to climbing shoes for the first time would really like these.

    Just plain terrible...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Size Bought: 9.5
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    I had a pair of 5.10 spires (which I love) that I sent off to be resoled and purchased these as a replacement. As of yesterday I pitched these in the trash, now that they are in need of being resoled.

    Somehow I found these to be a combination of the worst possible fit imaginable after I broke them in, crumpled toes and a loose heal. Several times on slabby rock, while on lead, I had to figure out some way to maneuver myself into some stable position to crank down the velco strap to some unimaginable tightness just to avoid my heel slipping out. This is more or less the last thing you really want to do 10 feet above the last bolt. On more vertical routes, this was not much of an issue, but my toes remained just crumpled instead.

    At the gym these shoes are insufferable. I had to swap out to my street shoes to belay even if only for a minute to end the torture. Instead of enjoying some nice mellow plastic jug hauls, all I could think about is how badly I didn't want to put my shoes back on. Aside from that the C4 rubber is good and I don't climb hard enough stuff to say it's anything otherwise. If these manage to fit you well they could be decent, but I cannot in good faith recommend them to anyone.

    I am a 9.5 length and C width for foot size, my previously mentioned 5.10 Spires were sized at a 9. I got these sized at 9.5, the 10s were too loose.

    Good shoe but runs small

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I've found these to be a great climbing shoe for both indoors and outdoors. However, they run small. I had a previous pair of similar shoes from 5.10 in my usual size of 11. When I bought my first pair of Rogues, however, they were distinctly smaller and uncomfortable. I just bought a pair from in size 11.5 and they're great.

    Great fit.. Great price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    This shoe has been great for me so far. It is incredibly comfortable and fits nice and snug. I had ordered a half size under my street shoe size. This is really all I could ask for when shopping for my first climbing shoe.. that and the kick*** price!

    5.10 Rouge

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    This is my first pair of climbing shoes.

    I have been climbing for about 4 months now, mostly indoor with one adventure to the great outdoors, and I would say the shoe does very well.

    I do agree that sometimes I might slip off of smaller foot holds but that doesn't make it a bad shoe. It could be that a lot of other people have slipped off of the same hold and now there is less traction due to their rubber being left behind on a tiny crimp hold that is a starting foot-hold.

    The shoe stretched very well being a real leather with a synthetic sole and for an amateur climber, such as myself, the comfort after using them 5 or 6 times is great. At first I could only stay in the shoe for about 45 minutes to an hour and now I can go for about 2 - 2.5 hours with no complaints. Just keep in mind this isn't a gym shoe or a Nike Roshe Run. It is a climbing shoe, therefore it isn't going to feel like a cloud around your feet, even a little bit.

    I would recommend this shoe to beginners or someone who is looking for not too aggressive of a shoe but still has some downturn to the point.

    I wear a street shoe of 9.5 - 10 U.S. and I picked up an 8.5. If anything else I could have gone for an 8.


    Super comfy

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    UPDATE: This particular pair had some sort of defect in the rubber and when it began to wear, the rubber started to come off in a chunk.

    I am checking in with Back Country to see what they can do about it

    They make a suction around my heel. Always comfortable and I would say they are very grippy. I disagree with the other reviewer on that point

    Slips so easily

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    While I'm newer to climbing, I'm attacking 5.10 pitches in the canyons near SLC, Utah. I bought these shoes because the fit was great and they seemed comfy. I'll be returning them because they don't stick on tiny footholds like I want/need. I have been slipping like crazy on holds that I have climbed without a problem in other shoes.

    Super comfy shoes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    These shoes are probably the most comfy climbing shoes I own. I bought them 1/2 size smaller than street shoe. If you wanted a more precise toe and/or more power you could go down a little more. Really good, stretches to fit feet well. Great rubber.

    Low quality shoe and service

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After one weekend of relatively easy use, the rubber has started coming away from the shoe. This has happened on both shoes around the area where the toe bends. Backcountry referred me to FiveTen, they referred me to a local distributor, I emailed them and after one week - no response.

    After one month, I received a replacement pair of shoes from FiveTen. Despite having to chase after them, I would now say the overall service has been satisfactory. I have not had a chance to try out the replacement pair yet to see if they have the same problem as the first.

    Hey guys, how much do these retail? when...

    Hey guys, how much do these retail? when do you think they are gonna be available? and lastly, is the fit same as the old coyote leather or the mocs? thanks
