Bernard K.wrote a review of Five Ten Spire Lace-up Climbing Shoe on August 5, 2012
The 5.10 Spire was the first shoe I ever climbed in, and they are still my favorite. I've tried several other brands and styles, but I keep coming back to these (this is my 3rd pair). The C4 stealth rubber is great, the fit is perfect (I have slightly wider than normal feet and these shoes fit well), and I like the way I climb in them. My only tiny complaint is, well, tiny: the laces on these things are stupidly long. After lacing them up tight, I have enough left over to choke a horse (note: I do not actually choke horses). I have to triple-tie the bows to avoid stepping on the excess. But other than that, a great shoe, and after 20 years of climbing, still my go-to shoe!
