5.10 guide tennies
Review by: lextalion, 2006-12-05
Get a pair. These are the best and most comfortable shoes I've owned. When the tread is new they grip like no ones buis-ness!! I've now had my pair for going on 2-1/2 years. They are now pretty much slick on the bottoms but fit my foot like a glove.
I've climbed relative easy climbs up to 5.7 out @ red rock. I love the comfort I have while hauling my gear out to a climb.
I wear the hell out of them also around town as they are comfortable and sport a style different from the norm.
I've had several people comment on the style and want to know what and where to get them, who don't have a clue about what rock climbing is all about.
With this said, I've now owned three pairs of these shoes. The second pair delaminated at the toes like previously mentioned by others. I spoke with 5.10 and they without hesitation replaced them.
While I love the stickiness of the rubber soles, they are known to leave marks on flooring and wear smooth within a year or so for me. I also see that the padding in the heel area wears out fairly quickly. And while I really like these shoes I am now beginning to look to replace them with a more durable shoe.
