Premier Sponsor:


Whether youre in the Valley or the Creek, the Five Ten Piton Climbing Shoes are ideal for long relentless cracks. High-friction, long-lasting Stealth ONYX rubber on the sole and top of the toes increases friction when youre jamming in cracks and makes the Piton one of the most durable crack-climbing shoes around. Lined leather construction keeps the Pitons from stretchingpull them right out of the box and start climbing with no break in time.

Fantastic shoe - super big 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: wildyak, 2010-04-22

These shoes seen really fantastic, and I'm looking forward to using them. I was impressed with how they climbed in the gym, although I returned the pair before going outside. I usually wear a size 9.5 street shoe, and have worn size 9 anasazi lace ups for a long time. I first ordered the piton in size 8.5 and it was HUGE. I returned them for a size 7, and they seem to be about perfect. Tight for sure, but still a bit of toe movement.

Cracks, yes. Face, no. 2 out of 5 stars

I bought the pitons looking for something that would fit into narrower cracks better. And they did! But they are not good for climbing faces or smearing.
I've taken several falls due to these shoes rolling off footholds. This was on climbs I'd done before and not fallen, had no problems in the past or at the time, then BAM! my foot popped off. It happened repeatedly and I eventually realized the culprit. If you want a really good all around shoe find something else.

The Piton Rocks 5 out of 5 stars

So after a day in yosemite my five ten Prisms were retired. I went up to the lodge and picked up a pair of Pitons at the climbing shop. The next couple days were awesome it is a great all-around shoe smears great when it is loosened and edges when tightened I was able to go from 13 in the prisim to a 12.5 in the piton. They are an excellant all day shoe!

big toes, this ones for you! 5 out of 5 stars

This is the most comfortable climbing shoe I have ever worn.

I started in a pair of 5.10 coyotes, and when it was time for something stiffer, I tried several pair on.
I have pretty big toes, and have always had some discomfort and even "runners toe" the blackening of a nail.

These have a huge toe box, yet are very sensitive to feel.

I wear the same size in these as my street shoes (keens) and am happy as a clam.

I may end up buying another pair just to have in reserve for when they stop production.

durable 5 out of 5 stars

I've had my pair for almost 3 years and with one resole, they lock beautifully in cracks and work great. 2 years ago when i broke my ankle i told them they could NOT cut the shoe... caught them just in time... great shoe and i'll be keeping them for quite a few years (with resoles)
