Five Ten Rogue
Bought this pair while visiting Edinburgh this year.
Bought this pair while visiting Edinburgh this year. These are my first climbing shoes so I can't compare them to anything else. I must say that for the money you get really good product -- the performance is outstanding if you just start climbing -- they smear great, heel hook awesome.
They have a little problem with edging though, despite the fact that i wear them quite tight. Most of the time i use them for bouldering (as i enjoy it more) but they are also great for single pitch routes at your local gym.
Regarding the fit - I bought them a half size smaller than my normal shoes and that is more than enough to have your toes cramped. And they won't stretch much, so keep it in mind when choosing a size! Usually they are not comfortable the moment i put them on, but after some 5 minutes as your foot warms the shoe they fit much better and snug.
I can't say that C4 rubber is the best one out there. What is more it feels quite stiff and not that sticky (compered to Vibram), so when i am working on overhangs they tend to slip much. But these shoes are the entry-level, so one can't expect them to work as Solutions or Testarosa i guess.
All in all these are great for pushing your performance further. They last long, fit tight, help to develop fundamental skills and even some of a higher level.
I would definitely recommend them as your first PERFORMANCE shoes!
Stay safe and have a great climbing, folks!
