Rated 5 out of 5 by Brady from The Best Approach Shoe made From climbing 5.11, bouldering V5, and 20 mile back-country approaches this shoe does it all. This shoe is more durable than any shoe I have ever owned. I have been rocking this shoe for over 10 years and have never seen anything better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Phillip from New Mid Cut Version Please My pair of mid tops of the previous model is starting to wear out, looking for a replacement. If you do the mid top model again be sure to use the same lacing as the current low cut guide tennie. The old mid tops were not perfect and took a long time to break in because the material at the lacing system bunched up pinching one's toes. The liner material on old mid tops was sweaty and too warm. If you do the new mid cut version with the grommet style lacing and a lighter warm weather suited / less sweaty lining you got a unique selling point. There's a few mid cut approach shoes with gore-tex, but hardly any mid cuts with a truely breathable lining that is suited for warmer weather. I get it that a low cut is a bit lighter, but often the mid cut is simply the better option providing just enough protection to keep your ankles from getting beat up in a rugged environment. It's a great shoe, mid cut version please.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sendy McSenderson from Bring back the mid-top! These shoes kick butt! super sticky and comfy, but would be 1000x better if there was a mid top option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tristan B from Best approach shoe This is the classic best approach shoe. It’s crushes it and hiking to crags, scrabbling to rig anchors at the top, climbing mellow routes and aid climbs. These shoes are heavy duty but still light on your feet. Also a solid mtn biking shoe too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DOLOCO from No gusseted tongue!!! I have owned two pairs of 5.10's previously. A pair of Freeride bike shoes and a Mid-top pair of the Guide Tennie's. Loved them both except for the insoles who's arch support seemed to be too far back for my feet. Just received my new pair of "GT lows" and discovered that they do not have a gusseted tongue! C'mon 5.10/Adidas, these are premium shoes and y'all are so CHEAP you can't put tongue gussets in:[ Most folks feet twist one way or the other and, BTW, the lace through on the tongue is NOT sufficient. I am going to keep these and see how well they do with my orthotics but they may be the last 5.10's I buy. Maybe I'll call to see if the Freeride's still have the elastic tongue "holders" for wearing unlaced next time, we'll see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dusty02 from Extremely comfortable approach shoe! the Guide Tennie is an extremely comfortable approach shoe! Great traction on trails, and great for scrambling in the high country. I love these shoes for climbing 14ers. here in Colorado. I have used them to climb many class 3 and 4 routes in the high country. I would recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a great mixture of a hiking shoe as well as a climbing shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Widefooteddude from Didn't fit. Don't buy these if you have wide feet. Unfortunately, nobody make wide size shoes anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimoblio from Tech Review I have used these now for climbing, hiking, and mountaineering/approach scrambling. As a hiking shoe they are awesome. The sole is rugged enough that stepping on small embedded sharp stones causes no pain or pressure on my arch. The overall heel padding is quite comfortable. They resist light water ingress due to the rubber last. The only downside of these is that they are heavy. I used to wear five tennies as approach shoes on long climbs and carry them on my harness for the descent. These are a bit too heavy to lug up a long climb. For technical climbing they edge well. For crack climbing, I wish that they had put more rubber on the small toe side. This is a wear point that has always failed first on my old five tennies. The sole would go smooth but once my pinkie toe was sticking out and I covered it with duct tape a few times I bought a new pair. I am also concerned that with all of the interal padding they will take a long time to dry and or will get the funk too bad to use anymore. They do seem to mark up floors less than the old shoes too. I like them and will use them again but they are very different than the old guide tennies. Almost a different shoe. Nice Work on the design!
