Climbers rejoice--the Five Ten Team VXi Climbing Shoe is finally here to keep you from peeling off plastic and other slippery surfaces. This innovative shoe features Five Ten's brand new and highly acclaimed Stealth Mi6 Rubber, the same rubber that was used in the latest Mission Impossible movie for scaling skyscraper windows. This rubber offers unbeatable friction on any surface so whether you're shifting your weight on a slab problem or throwing a hard-to-reach toe hook, the Team VXi will keep your foot where you want it. The synthetic suede upper material molds to your foot so you have no dead space between your toes, and the material is so lightweight that the Team VXi is Five Ten's lightest modern performance shoe. Its hook-and-loop closure system makes the shoe easy to put on and quick to take off. Thanks to Five Ten's Active Arch Support that provides a glove-like fit, the Team VXi helps you pull your body towards the wall whether you're hooking a ledge or toeing in a small, slippery jib. That, combined with the Fish Hook midsole, allows you to feel the smallest divots on your foot as if you weren't wearing a shoe at all.
5.10's new Mi6(TM) rubber provides exceptional sensitivity and a glove-like fit, improving your smearing technique and giving you a prehensile ability to grab holds with your toes. The fish hook midsole delivers edging power to this incredibly soft, slipper-style shoe. At only 10 ounces per pair, the unique Team VXi is the lightest climbing shoe available today.
