FIVE TEN Rogue VCS Climbing Shoe - Mens
I've just recently started climbing and owned a really cheap pair of horrible shoes so needed to look for something that'll help me improve yet not brake the bank as I'm new to the sport.
An outstanding investment at a great price. They start off tight though after 3/4 sessions of 4/5 hours they've slackened off and fit perfectly, (exactly as the member of staff had recommended).
The grip was a little slippy during my first session, I think this may have been as they were brand new. Though now they've been a little roughed up and worn in - they are light years better than a cheap pair half the price.
Excellent toe and heel grip, comfortable enough to stand in while belaying for hours and plenty or climbs without taking them off. I honestly couldn't be happier. Hugs your ankle and upper really well with no feel or fear that they may slip due to heel/toe hooks.
If you buy cheap you buy twice, I learned the hard way and wish I bought these first off months ago. Already I'm climbing above my last grades and smashing what I previously struggled with. Practice of course, though the Five Ten shoes are incredible at what they're meant to do and also look the part.
Couldn't recommend them enough!
