Profile

Downturn. The Team 5.10 is part of Five Ten’s selection of aggressively downturned rock climbing shoes. Its downward camber encourages the foot to curl into a position that enables climbers to mount on tiny edges with security and precision. Fans of aggressive rock climbing shoes may also look into the Five Ten Hiangle.

Applications. This rock shoe is ideally designed for sport routes. Its set of features and components and moderate rigidity make it a capable tool for overhanging terrain. Climbers may use it on gym walls (indoors) and rocky surfaces (outdoors).

Fit

Five Ten’s Team 5.10 is a low-cut rock climbing shoe crafted specifically for men. Its lined upper promises no stretch. The last used in its construction is asymmetric, giving the shoe a curved interior. A personalized fit in it may be achieved by way of the shoe’s Velcro closure.

Performance

Midsole. The Team 5.10 comes with a synthetic midsole for extra support underfoot. Much of the shoe’s moderate stiffness comes from this heavy-duty component.

Outsole. Thanks to the Team 5.10’s Stealth HF outsole, users can rack up vertical miles on different types of surfaces with enough adhesive power. Its entirety, which has a thickness of 2.5 mm, is made of soft yet sturdy rubber compound. This particular outsole is characterized by high interlocking capacity and enhanced sensitivity, among others.

Upper

What encloses the foot in this 5.10 gear is a fully synthetic upper made of microfiber polyester. It comes with a no-stretch liner, which is also synthetic. A total of three pull loops are securely attached to its cuff zone for easy on and off. Its heel, midfoot, and forefoot sections are heavily randed, granting the sender increased climbing security with ample protection from abrasions. The upper’s toe box, on the other hand, is engineered with a grippy patch, which bolsters the shoe’s stickiness in toe-hooking scenarios.

The Five Ten Team 5.10’s lockdown system is comprised of a stretchy strap set through a beveled buckle made of hard plastic. The strap comes with hook-and-loop fasteners, making it adequately adjustable.
