Ideal for steep, overhanging routes and long bouldering sessions
For the redevelopment of the classic Quantum, we worked with the Huber brothers, Alex and Thomas, to develop an all-around performance shoe for any climbing setting. The Hubers tackle a diverse range of climbs with many different angles and rock textures, so Stealth® C4™ (our most versatile climbing compound) was a natural choice for the outsole.

QUANTUM VCS is rated out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by birdperson from Pointy and Comfortable Very structured shoe with a precise pointed toe. Higher volume than other 5.10 shoes with a well-designed heel cup (for me - not too deep). Still enough to let the shoe support on small edges, sensitive enough to power down on bad footholds. Toehook rubber is a great addition. Sized 1/2 down from street.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ivan from Baggy in the toe area Orderd online, same size as I always order with 5.10 Teams and VXi. The Quantums felt like they were the right size except there was too much space above the toes, but otherwise the shoe was super tight. A baggy toe area where I'd need it to fit like a glove for toe hooking is no good. Was suprized, they just didn't seem well thought out and executed for a high end agressive shoe. I'll stick to the Teams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Würstmeister from Edges and smears Used it mainly indoors but also a few days on both granite and limestone sport. Edges way better than the Hiangles even though I wear them slightly too big, ca half a size up from my preferred size. They do stretch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Perm from Size and fit issue I bought the quantum (non vcs) and loved the shoe, so when the VCS was coming out I was excited to not have to lace. I downsized from a 44.5 to a 44 for slightly smaller fit, however the VCS fits like a 45. The performance is similar but overall fit and feel of the shoe is not the same as the original.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jackson from A little uncomfortable This shoe does a great job edging and with the toe being slightly downturned, it can perform on more overhung routes. Although, Im not sure if I need to go down a size but there is some room above my toes and when I plant, the added toe rubber digs into my foot. Besides that, great shoe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jared from Best fitting climing shoe ever Shoe fits perfect! Perfect blend of aggressive fit with not hot spots! The breathable tongue is definitely an upgrade from other models I have used in the past.
