Great Sensitive & Aggressive Shoe

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

My first pair of aggresive shoes were the now discontinued 5.10 Blackwings. These remind me of those but with a bit more aggressive downturn, so far so good. They're very sensitive and very soft shoe, if you're used to this you'll love it. If you're coming from a stiffer shoe, even an aggressive stiffer shoe live Solutions, you may need to adjust. These are great on all things steep, like most down-turned shoes I'd be reluctant to make them my first choice for dead vertical or slab. The hybrid slipper style is great, it's supportive and an easier on off then the Solutions. Be aware that 5.10 sizing is very small, I wear a street shoe size 8 to 8.5 and bought a size 10.5 which is a good performance fit. I could have sized down 1/2 size but they would have required a painful break-in.

Great shoe!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These are my third pair of climbing shoes, and I've gone more aggressive each time. I also have the Evolv Shamans. The Shamans are great, but I was immediately able to notice a difference when I put these on- they're a bit more aggressive, much tighter, with a sticky, thin compound on the sole- they're probably not going to last long with regular use. The fit is slightly small, so I sized a half size up and when I first put them on, I thought they were too tight- you quickly get used to them, but it's definitely a shoe you have to take off after each route. My street size is 11, and I went with 11.5 in these which is also the same size I wear in the Shamans, though I could've probably gone a half size smaller in the Shamans to have a comparable fit- my Shamans are much more comfy. I've only ever indoor bouldered, and these shoes are great for that.

These run way small

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

All of my shoes to date I have gotten at a minimum a half size smaller than my street shoe size which is a USmens9, but have been developing some sesamoid tendon issues in both feet from years of climbing in tight shoes, bummer, but as much as I don’t want to, I have to lean more towards comfort than performance at this point in my life... so, I figured I’d start with a size 9 but these teams’ are tiny... so I sent them back and based on how the 9s felt I went all the way up to a 10... those are going back too because they’re still crazy small so we’ll see how the 10.5s do. As for the shoes themselves I can tell they’ll be sensitive for projects and I have high hopes for them. I still size down a full size in sportiva solutions and even switch to the women’s model for the slightly more narrow body. My point is, these fiveten teams are awesome but run crazy small. Side note, I also just tried out the new furia airs and they’re super light and sensitive but the teams are comparable and have a better heal, I just can’t believe I had to go up a size and a half from my street shoe size!

My first aggressive shoe

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These were the first pair of climbing shoes I bought after my "newbie" pair of Evolv Defy's. At first, I had tried to find some Solutions that fit, but neither the men's nor women's solutions fit at all in the heel. My girlfriend had a pair of 5.10 Teams, and they were the best fit I had found to date, so I ordered myself a pair in the same size (men's US 8 / EUR 41). Let me tell you, these things hurt like hell to break in. I had never broken in a pair of aggressive shoes before, and so my feet were all weak and dainty. I'm not sure if I broke the shoes in, or if they broke my feet in. Either way, over the course of about a month I went from not being able to keep these on for 20 seconds to being able to wear them for 10 minutes at a time. Now that I'm retiring the pair, they've broken in to the point that I can wear them for a 5 hour gym session without taking them off. Cinderella's slipper didn't fit as well as these do now... and I'm a little scared about how a new pair is going to feel. While on the subject of fit, I'll mention that I have a small heel and a wide forefoot. I also have a Morton's toe. The morton's toe was certainly the most painful spot while breaking these in. HOWEVER, the rubber above that toe ended up forming to fit it over time. Also, my big toe ends up slightly overlapping my second toe due to the width of the toebox, which has worked out fine for me (but I don't know what other peoples toes do in the toebox) The 5.10 Teams are extremely sensitive. This was nice in the gym and on some outdoor boulders, but not so nice on the sharp rocks of hueco tanks (especially since my foot was still breaking in). When doing outdoor sport climbs, I'd steal my girlfriend's anasazi pro's when I could for much better comfort on the wall. I will be ordering myself another pair of 5.10 teams, and will also almost certainly order a pair of the Anasazi Pro's, as well (I'm told I should be practicing with less aggressive shoes).

Pretty cool. Now about sizing for women

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

I'm writing this review to offer some insight on sizing. I've always worn La Sportiva Testarosas in a size 37.5, as the leather really does stretch a full size. When ordering the the Team's I was told to go with a men's size 8, as 5.10 tends to run much smaller than La Sportiva. I even did a little research and was again recommended to order the size 8. That being said, you can see in the photos that the Teams are much bigger at that size right out of the box. I ran into another climber wearing a worn in pair of Team's recently and found that her size 7's were even too big, as they do stretch a full size. If you wear a Size 37.5 La Sportiva, it's worth looking closer to getting a size 6.5 Team IMO.

What makes this shoe so special is that is is almost entirely coated in rubber, yet the rubber patches are thin enough that the whole shoe is very supple and yet the thinness of the sole rubber is remarkably balanced by the midsoles stiffness near the toes. Supportive, sensitive, powerful, grippy.. everywhere! The toe-box of the 5.10 Team points your big toe almost straight down for some incredible power on any terrain. Combine the sheer toe-in power with the near-perfect slits in the thin rubber of the heel and toe allows for an, almost, perfect right-out-of-the-box fit and a perfect mold to a medium volume foot. And the confidence to really grip into those powerful friction-y heel hooks and toe hooks. My foot is almost exactly 9.5 inches long and I got these sized in men's 9.5 and they're performance fitted. I could maybe manage to get a 9.0 on my feet, but it wouldn't be necessary. I like my shoes to fit tight without it feeling like foot binding and I get that perfectly with the 9.5. Get em!

I personally love the 5.10 teams. The rubber is great, especially for tight footwork, gripping, and edging. That being said, the fit is pretty aggressive. I personally have a very narrow foot (I'm a B width in normal shoes), so they are perfect for me, but wide footed climbers beware. I wear a 7.5 unisex in the Teams, when I normally wear a 39.5 EURO in the 5.10 HiAngles and a women's 8.5 street shoe. These Teams broke in for me within 2 weeks.

I just sent one of the hardest boulders problems of my life today in these shoes. They are all around awesome. Toe hooking, great. Smearing, amazing. Edging, so-so. Sensitivity, perfect. Heal hooking, good but the strap could be improved. A couple negatives... - rubber has a whole in the toe after a couple months. Maybe I need better footwork. - not so comfy, but it is really just for quick hard problems. - I wouldn't recommend them for long climbs and small edges and sharp pockets.

This shoe is great. It fits very true to size and is super sensitive to the touch. If your have your foot on a hold it will stay. The high friction rubber that 5.10 uses produces a great contact with the wall and will stick to almost anything. I have used this more as my projecting shoe for the past year or so in more limestone climbs and indoor overhanging sport. a GREAT aggressive shoe. 5.10 did it again. Down fall to this shoe is since the rubber is so thin it doesn't last as long as I would like which is why I have used it strictly for a project shoe.

I bought this climbing shoe for my son but unfortunately it was too small. I requested a return slip and shipped it back. Within a week I got a refund. Excellent experience with this site.

Great shoe so far

I just got these the other day and have had the chance to use them a few times. So far I love them if you like climbing anything steep these will work fantastically. The rubber is supper thin so you feel everything you toes are on, It's is also supper sticky, and finally the down turn makes them great for climbing roof where you really have to toe in on stuff. I wear a size 12 street shoe, a 10 in the anasazi vcs, and a 11 in these so mine are super super tight. They are not unbearably painful but they sure ain't comfy. I personally like the slipper style of shoe for the tight fit and security bit if you aren't used to that I would warn against these. It also makes them hard to get on. another thing is if you don't have very good foot work your gonna blow through these fast. So in short if you want a super sensitive aggressive shoe for steep sport climbing and bouldering these will definitely fulfill that wish.

I wear a 9.5 street shoe and a 38.5 LaSportiva Solution. What size should I get these in?

I want to buy the 5.10 team but they arent sold in canada anywhere, ive already ordered shoes online in the wrong size and it was a real hastle to exchange them for a new size... whats your return policy like if i buy two pairs of shoes (in different sizes so i can return the one that doesnt fit?)

>Rating:

I've heard these are basically the same as the older blue teams just easier to get on and was wondering if anybody knew if this is true and do they size the same?

>Rating:

The rubber on these shoes look pretty soft, how do they hold up on small granite footholds? and does soft rubber mean they won't last long? Also, I mainly climb in solutions, though I don't like the heel. How does the Team's heel compare to the Solution's?

Softer rubber means that you will get more friction. It also means that if you have poor footwork, you will wear them out faster. The heel is less bulbous and padded in the Team 5.10, but very good.

I wear a size 45 in La Sportiva Solutions and in also in Scarpa Instinct VS, what size would you recommend? 12 or 11.5? Also how does the fit compare? narrower or wider

Many people go for street size or one half-size up in the FiveTen Team 5.10s. They fit very, very snug.

Does the synthetic microfiber stretch much?...

Does the synthetic microfiber stretch much? I'm switching over to these from La Sportiva Pythons (which I love) and with them being more of a slipper with an upper strap like these 5.10's, will I see as much stretch? The pythons are leather, and they stretched nearly a full size. But from what I've read, the synthetic material doesn't stretch much. Could anyone verify this? Thanks!

Hey Ryan!! So these will not stretch nearly as much as the pythons. You are 100% correct on leather vs synthetic. Synthetic will not really stretch at all where as leather will stretch out quite a bit. If you have more questions on them, feel free to chat in to me. I am in till 3:45 today and my email is skdavis@backcountry.com

I climb mostly in the pythons and these. In the pythons I wear a 7.5 and in these a 8.5. These things dont stretch at all. The rubber softens and they get more comfy but the fit is the same as the first time I put them on.

how do these compare to the 5.10 dragon...

how do these compare to the 5.10 dragon and or quantum? I have found my dragons true to my sizing in quantums and the dragons are by far the smallest best fitting shoe to my foot I've worn from many different companies. (I think 5.10 fits my foot well.) PS. I have used quantum and the dragons for the past year of climbing. I have owned the Blue and the newest VXi. The VXi was to soft for me on quite a bit of climbs I did though.

From what I heard a few years ago. This shoe and the black wings are pretty much the updated/ velcro version of the dragons. I would stick with the same size you went with in the dragons and quantum's.

For me I am a 8 in really tight dragons and a 8.5 is what I climb in these.

I have found that compared to my dragons these teams (black) require me to down size a half size to get the same fit.
