FIVE TEN GUIDE TENNIE APPROACH SHOE is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable, but... They are already coming apart at the sole. I purchased them at the end of last month and within a week the sole rubber of the inner right shoe separated from the rand. They’re my fist pair of 5.10s. I’ve had approach shoes of other brands. I’ve always thought of 5.10s as a standard in the community. I’m not sure if this is a one off defect or if Adidas has changed the manufacturing process of the shoes construction (if that has anything to do with this issue). I’m not one to make a big deal of something like this. I purchased them to beat the heck out of them anyway. We’ll see how they hold up for this bouldering season. I’d recommend them to friends with a caution: don’t be surprised if this happens.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 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 4 out of 5 by 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 3 out of 5 by from Previous Design Was Better I've had three pairs of Guide Tennies now. The first two were the previous design, the new pair is the design that replaced the previous design. The old model was superior. The new Guide Tennies do not fit as well. I feel like they weren't broken and did not need fixing, so I'm curious why they altered their design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 2 out of 5 by from Soulless I bought a pair of Guide Tennie three years ago and wore them out, so I went online and bought another pair. I wish I'd seen them first, before buying them, because they're not the same shoe. I don't regret having bought them so much as I just wish I hadn't. What was formerly a crazy pair of shoes is now a soulless thing in a sneaker kind of way. There's nothing wrong with them, they're just not special. On the plus side, they now cost less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 5 out of 5 by 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.
