Summary

Very good shoe — great for use on climbing approaches, just replace the laces before using them.

Pros

  • Sticky!
  • Comfortable
  • Supportive

Cons

  • Laces are slippery and not very good
  • Tricky to guess size without trying on first

Love this shoe, very sticky sole.

Not sure if I love the ankle height yet, feels a bit like it's cutting into my legs but probably just needs to be broken in.

My one main complaint so far is that the laces are terrible — so slippery, hard to tighten. I will just replace the laces though, easy fix.

I also was not able to find these shoes anywhere in AZ (Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff) to try them on before buying, so I had to guess. My guess was far off but I talked to a Five Ten rep and she was very helpful, I was able to exchange them for the right size. It's always a bit tricky to figure out the size for these climbing shoe brands, doesn't exactly translate from street shoe size.

Sizes:
My street shoe size is Womens 7.5
Originally bought Mens 6.5
Exchanged for Mens 5.5, fits well
My climbing shoes in this brand (Five Ten Rogue VCS Women's) are a size Women's 8.5, UK 6.0, EUR 39.5, CM250  for reference.

Would definitely recommend as an approach shoe or hiking shoe if you like to scramble and rock hop a lot.
Recently used them in Red Rocks (NV) and it felt like cheating to walk down slabs of sandstone. Very comfy and sticky, would buy again for sure!
