Grippy approach shoes that set the standard

The best routes are off the beaten path. These approach shoes are designed for the scrambles and hikes that lead the way. A sticky rubber outsole and extended rubber around the toe handle abrasion and provide friction on uneven scree. A sock-like fit and a lace closure offer stability on mixed terrain. Unmatched grip - Stealth® S1 rubber outsole for unbeatable grip. High-friction rubber - Climbing zone on outsole for friction on technical terrain.

FIVE TEN FIVETENNIE MENS APPROACH SHOE is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe but runs large It seems to be a great shoe but it does run quite large. Size down 1/2 to full size to get the correct fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super comfortable and immediately noticed by all! Note: I did not receive this product or compensation from Adidas. First off - at least a half dozen people have commented on the shoes during my first times wearing them at the gym and around town - climbers knew what they were, while some were non-climber visitors who simply were stoked by the design (in the retro color scheme). I find this to be a super comfortable shoe. I sized my street shoe size (10), as these are meant to be a comfortable approach shoe-only. (For reference: I wear a half or whole size down for Moccs and Anasazis in a performance fit.) Fit and finish on the shoe are excellent and the Stealth sole is, of course, extremely grippy. My only 'gripe' is that the shoe is surprisingly roomy in the toebox. I have average foot width (not particularly wide or narrow), and found the knit mid-foot area to be snug and supportive, but lots of play in the forefoot. In the 24 Hours of Horseshoe H*ll, I climb any routes up to 5.10a/b in approach shoes (Sportiva TX2s in size 10). I would use these as well BUT would size down to 9.5 or even 9 for that purpose (the Sportivas run very narrow in the toe). Overall, however, these are FAR more comfortable, grippy and stylish than the Sportivas and I would definitely recommend. If unsure on sizing, buy two pairs and return the pair that does not fit as well, if you are concerned. Street sizing for a regular comfortable approach-only shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Run 1/2 size big. I'm usually 9.5 in all Adidas Outdoor shoes. Got these in 9.5 but too big. Especially for an approach shoe. Otherwise, they seem awesome. Well made and I like the sock like fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw the other review, shoulda listened! The shoes are great! they look awesome and fit great. They run about a half size larger than other 5.10s At least the width feels snug true to size, but the length is a 1/2 big. I'm super stoked on the free returns guarantee so I can switch them out and get a size down quick!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great approach shoe, but run large These are really comfy and very cool looking approach shoes (especially in the teal/magenta, which is the obvious choice). One issue is that they are sized like a running shoe instead of an approach shoe. I like the fit in my normal size because they are comfortable for wearing day-to-day, but if you want these for real approach shoe activities where you need to trust the toe of the shoe to hold onto rock (e.g. some light climbing on talus, etc.) then go at least 1/2 a size down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Casual Routesetting Shoe Sizing: It depends what you want to use it for. I wear a size 9 to 9 1/2 Nike and found the size 9 FiveTennie to be snug on the roof of my foot (due to the sock-like fit), but quite long around the toes. Feel: They're a mix between the Aescent and Guide Tennie. Definitely not as stiff as the Guide Tennie, but not as soft as the Aescent. The base of the shoe is 100% flat, so heel hooking is a no go. Edging seems feasible, but again my sizing was off so right now I can't edge on much. Look: They look like great casual shoes. Sleek and go well with any form of casual attire. No complaints there. Since I use these the most for routesetting, if I were to do it again I'd get the shoes tight enough so my toes are at least touching the front of the shoe so I can feel edging. Right now, they're definitely too big for that. Personally, I can't wait for a comfortable day-shoe that has some toe rubber and a semi-fitted heel for climbing in... No idea what that shoe would look like but I bet it would be a big hit!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sized way too big Bought these in size 7.5. I normally wear 7 or 7.5 in anasazi's. Unfortunately they're still too big by at least half a size. I don't see them in size 7 or smaller and don't know if they even make them in that size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good shoes. Nice support like the sock aspect of the liner. Would be good to have a bit smaller toe box. But overall solid shoe and looks great.
