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.

FIVE TEN QUANTUM VCS CLIMBING SHOE is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 2 out of 5 by from Bad rubber I really enjoyed this shoe a lot while it lasted, but unfortunately the toes blew out between one and two months. I'm a Route Setter and was looking to try out this new shoe and was hoping the stiff rubber would be durable and longer lasting, unfortunately it wasn't. I hope they bring back a shoe comparable to the Arrowheads because those were the most reliable and durable all around shoes. I wouldn't buy this shoe again unless in some modified version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 4 out of 5 by from Good downturned shoes I got these for harder bouldering and sized down 1/2 size from my normal 5.10 (and street shoe) size. They have a great shape with a nice pointy toe and I love the amount of downturn. However, I'd say the quality of these isn't great as the toe patches on mine are slightly different shapes (minor but annoying). Also, they don't toe hook super well, the shape makes it somewhat uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 3 out of 5 by 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 4 out of 5 by 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!
