  • Prefer a climbing shoe that allows wearers to heel hook with enhanced efficiency.

Excellent surface traction

A company-exclusive outsole in the name of Stealth HF is where the Five Ten Dragon’s provision of surface traction comes from. It is made of rubber with an overall thickness of 4.2 mm. Its engineering makes it a sensitive component, especially on edges.

Excellent underfoot support and comfort

The Dragon’s source of underfoot support is its dual-density midsole unit. Its cushioned, medium-soft construction offers sufficient comfort where needed.

Offers abrasion protection and additional grip on tricky edges

Shielding the foot from the direct assaults of the terrain (whether natural or man-made) is the Five Ten Dragon’s low-top upper made of microfiber. It comes built with a liner. A rubber rand covers its lower perimeter, which includes the heel region, for extra abrasion protection and additional grip on tricky edges. For improved toe hooks, on the other hand, 5.10 designers furnished its toe box with a laser-etched rubber rand.
