Five Ten Spire Climbing Shoe

Expert Review

A great shoe built on classic principles that performs really well. The unlined leather uppers use a lacing system that extends all the way to the toe. This allows the shoe to both feel comfortable and also be precisely adjusted. Cinch it really tight for hard, edging routes or slacken it off on easier mountain routes.

Five Ten has added some performance characteristics to the shoe such as a slightly asymmetrical toe. The tensioned heel was added to ensure that the shoe does not let you down on harder moves. These additions have not compromised comfort, or the ability to grip tightly when needed.Rating: 4.5/5
