The Five Ten Men's Verdon Lace-Up Climbing Shoe thrives on technical, vertical, limestone crags like Ten Sleep, Virgin River Gorge, and the shoe's namesake in France. Its stiff midsole, made of thermoplastic and cushy EVA, lets you comfortably stand on micro-nubbins like they were flat ledges. Five Ten designed this shoe with an asymmetric toe box combined with a slight curve to help you edge, smear, and step in smaller pockets, even when the route steepens. Stealth C4 rubber gives this shoe superior grip on limestone's slippery surfaces.
