From the unrelenting splitters of the Utah desert to the sweeping granite walls of Yosemite Valley, the Five Ten Copperhead Climbing Shoe is your ultimate weapon against any crack climbing challenge. Thanks to an innovative side lace system, you can open the shoe up for multi-pitch moderates, and crank it down for overhanging testpieces. The laces are offset and covered to protect against Vedauwoo-esque abrasions, and the low-profile toe jams into the thinnest of finger cracks.
The Copperhead climbing shoe by Five Ten looks like your standard hard climbing slipper, but really its a crack climbing master. With a cool, side lacing system you can dial in a great fit while the location of the laces allow you to jam your foot into a crack without getting your foot stuck or ripping your laces. Genius. Indian Creek can offer up some really hard routes and the Copperhead is designed just for these splitters. With the Stealth Onyx rubber you can smear and stand on some of the smallest holds and smear in the tiniest of cracks with the confidence that at least the rubber will hold. The outsole has reduced volume so there is much more sensitivity in the toe of the shoe while preventing your feet from rolling on tiny edges as the side lace system allows you to dial in a tight fit.
