FIVE TEN HIANGLE SYNTHETIC WOMEN'S CLIMBING SHOE
FIVE TEN HIANGLE SYNTHETIC WOMEN'S CLIMBING SHOE
Performance and comfort
Said by many to be the most comfortable of our downturned climbing shoes, the Hiangle is an all-around performance shoe that is relaxed enough for all day climbing, yet aggressive enough to tackle steep, overhanging routes. Its Stealth® C4™ outsole has a thicker application of rubber than many of our downturned shoes (4.2mm) which gives it the stiffest profile in the Aggressive line and a supportive feel on the foot. Stealth® C4™ performs well both indoors and outdoors by blending friction and durability.
- Material: CLARINO
- Stealth® C4™ rubber outsole (4.2mm)
- Unlined synthetic upper – very limited stretch
- Elastic & Velcro closure for a secure fit
- Stiffness: Stiff

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ash123456789 from Hiangles are the best Hiangles are my favorite climbing shoe ever and I have kind of a shoe problem and have tried/owned tons of shoes (it's a problem). I've owned a number of the pink, leather hiangles as they used to be my go-to for outside climbing (I wear cheaper shoes indoors). Loved the pink except the heel glue rubbed on my foot a lot. Tried taping it and/or my foot but nothing really worked, just endured the blistering I guess. But! The synthetics arent having amthat issue at all so far! They're also softer on the inside for a cozier fit too. You could call me crazy but my purple synthetics also feel a tiny bit bigger than the leather pink ones. I'm typically a size 6.5/7 in street shoe and I buy size 7.5 in Hiangles. I'm not much for sizing down. I wear them tight but my toe knuckles aren't really super pronounced besides my big toe. Have narrow, lady feet too. I've been climbing for 11 years and boulder v5-v7.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nazifa from Sole is peeling off Hiangles are my go to. The leather ones fit me like a glove, so I got the synthetic ones for the gym. Surprisingly, these also fit me like a glove and performed very well. There was an initial breaking in period, but after 2-3 sessions, they were "comfortable". The reason for 2 stars is that the sole of the left shoe is peeling off the shoe rand. I don't know if this is bad construction, bad glue, or bad rubber. I tried to fix this with shoe goo but no luck. This has never happened to any of my other shoes. I was just starting feel confident to order another pair given the price, but I guess I won't :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by fresh_toes from First Aggressive Shoe for Beginner Climber My first pair of climbing shoes were LaSportive Wmn's Tarantulaces, EU size 40/US 9. After almost 5 months of gym climbing 3-4x/week, they have definitely stretched and are quite roomy. I chose these Hiangle Synth shoes as my next pair because experienced climber friends suggested it, and suggested that I get a half size smaller than what I usually wear in a street shoe. I got an EU 39.5/US 8.5 in this shoe, and BOY was I NOT MENTALLY PREPARED for the pain of breaking in a new, aggressive climbing shoe. Day 1: I laughed when I pulled these out of the box. They look absurdly small next to my clunky Tarantulaces. I could only get them on using a piece of plastic grocery bag to slide my heels in. I spent 30min on the couch wearing them thinking I would return them the next day, that there was no way they'd ever be comfortable, and generally marveling at the throbbing pain in my toes. The first day of wearing them to climb was absolutely brutal. I've never felt like crying from pain like that. Day 2: (a few days later) Second day was better than the first but I was still hobbling around the gym/crawling back to the bench from the wall. However, day 2 was when I realized that the blisters on my toes (my toe skin is not conditioned for these shoes yet) hurt more than the tightness of the shoe. Is there hope? I didn't believe so yet. Day 3: was when everything started clicking–– I had let my blisters heal a bit, the shoe had stretched just a teensy bit, and I had figured out exactly how to cram my toes into the toe box in the most comfortable arrangement. I climbed some overhang gym climbs and was SHOOK by the difference an aggressive shoe makes. The more my skin heals, the more comfortable these shoes become, and I'm now very stoked on overhang and can't wait for these shoes to feel like stiff socks on my feet. Day 4: Outside climbing on real live boulders. I was hesitant to use these shoes outside since I'm still breaking them in, but I whipped them out to try for the send on my project. Didn't send, but that was definitely not the shoes' fault. That day they felt pretty excellent, and I'm excited to rest/heal my toe blisters and continue breaking in these sweet sweet shoes. TL;DR • LaSportiva Wmn's Tarantulace size 9 (EU 40) ==> 5.10 Synthetic Hiangle size 8.5 (EU 39.5); probably unnecessarily went down a half size. I don't think I'd be missing out on anything if I had gotten a size 9 in the Hiangles, though my more experienced friends swear up and down that in 6 months I'll be glad I got the half size smaller. • From my experienced climber friends: "If you can get your foot in it, it fits." My personal jury is still out on this sentiment –– not sure that such extreme pain during the break-in period is really that necessary. Maybe if you're a V8+ climber, but if you're a measly weekend warrior scratching the surface of V4, maybe go for something less aggressive/more user friendly/inviting. • Rough break-in period (breaking my feet into the shoe rather than me breaking the shoe in) due to this being my first pair of aggressive shoes • Otherwise, I believe these will be rad and comfortable shoes [eventually]

Rated 5 out of 5 by highstokes from Size 1/2 Up I bought these since my Scarpa Vapor Vs stretched out. I bought 1/2 a size up and it fit my left foot pretty perfectly. It still hurt a little bit, as new shoes do. My right foot is slightly bigger and it is a big struggle to get it on. It was so painful to have them on, even without moving or standing up. I considered returning these and size a full size up. After a few sessions, they didn't hurt as much. I still have to take them off after every climb and they still hurt, but they should mold to my feet once they're properly broken in. I don't expect these to ever be comfortable, since they're aggressive. In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't size a whole size up. The left shoe would not have been aggressive enough for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ErinSW from Good shoes, but did not fit After reading a few review that suggested going up a size to a size and a half, I did just that. I ordered these in a 9.5 when my street shoe size is 8.5. Even after going up a size these shoes were still a size too small. One of my friends bought the same shoes a few days later in a size larger and those ones fit me perfectly. I would probably give these shoes a higher rating if the sizing was closer to street shoe size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tai_with_A_Y from I feel like I stole them I’ve owned several pairs of HiAngles. As marketed, they truly are a great all around shoe; superb edging performance; tremendously accurate when toeing small holds on overhanging faces; despite their aggressiveness I don’t feel like a cat in a hot tub when I’m on slabby features. The fit is snug (I go street shoe sz/half sz down) and the heel cup isn’t super deep so I find it doesn’t collapse when heel hooking. The only negative I have is that if I need an aggressive toe or heel hook they aren’t necessarily the best however that isn’t to say that they fail at these things. So why three stars? It took ten days to process my order (not including shipping time). Apparently it was flagged for a fraud alert but then never resolved. I’m hesitant to complain too much since they were such a good price. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Rated 2 out of 5 by nilka from Ok shoe that runs very small These do run way small. My street shoe size is normally 5.5 EU 36. I had to get these in a 7 or EU 37.5. I'm used to agressive shoes and even in a 7 the are very tight and uncomfortable. So I should have gotten them maybe 7.5. For reference I have the Pinks in 6.5 for a very comfort fit. I wear size US5.5 EU35.5 to EU36 in all my La Sportiva shoes. They aren't remarkable shoes, but are good for $65.
