Five Ten Coyote Rock Shoesis rated4.375out of5by8.
Rated5out of5by5oh5fromReally love these shoesTotally love these shoes. I'm a novice climber who is just getting back in after a long break, and have slightly wide feet, so I got these coyotes for toe lacing adjustability. I've used them now for both outdoor sport climbing and in the gym, and have yet to find anything I don't like. The grip is amazing, they have great feel, and I can wear these shoes for many hours without discomfort. I always hear horror stories about people's climbing shoes (especially from new climbers), but mine have been all positive and no problems. Just as well, because I've got other negative areas to work on...

Rated4out of5byIda ManfromGreat beginner shoesThis is my first pair of climbing shoes. I can't believe what a difference it makes having these shoes. I ordered the shoes 1/2 size smaller than my hiking shoe size and it made it just right. Tight enough that I have the leverage in the foot that I need but not so tight that it is painful to wear. It also allows for some swelling on warmer days. If you are looking for a good entry shoe this is worth a try for you. It is priced right, especially if you can get it on sale. It is worth every penny I paid for it and has made my climbing much more enjoyable. I have had them out four times now. I can tell the sole will wear quickly but that is probably to be expected.

Rated4out of5byTheCaptain1013fromExcellent beginner climbing shoesI'm a begining indoor climber and these shoes are great. Reasonably priced, so you don't feel bad spending a lot of money when you are first starting out climbing.

Rated5out of5byNOVA StevefromNot amazing, but amazing for the priceThese aren't the most comfortable or the most aggressive shoe out there, but they area great shoe for kicking around the gym.
They are the best shoe I have found for the money, and if you are wearing out your nice shoes on an indoor crag, I'd recommend them as they are only slightly more expensive than a resole.

Rated4out of5byPeter286fromGood Beginner ShoeThis is a good all-around shoe; I especially like it for cracks.
My main issue with it is that it isn't good for heel hooking: there is some empty space in the heel and the sole does not extend to the back - my sole is peeling slightly now because of too many slipped heel hooks.

Rated5out of5byChris717fromA shoe every climber should haveI have been climbing in this shoes for 2 years about 3 times a week both indoors and out doorsg, and love this shoe. I will be buying this shoe again. This is a great all around shoe. I wouldn't leave for a climb without it. Its great at smearing and good at edging and crack climbing. There are shoes that I have used that are better at edging such as the Teams. But for versatility you can't beat these shoes. Many people say these are a beginner shoe. They are great for beginners but I have also completed 5.12a's in these shoes and had no frustrations with the shoes performance. My only complaint is that they turn your feet red for a month or so. It washes off. A small price to pay for their good value.

Rated4out of5byJPruett386fromGood ProductI only started climbing (indoor) a few months ago. I decided to invest in my own pair of climbing shoes. I do not have a lot of experience to draw from, however, I can say that I do like the shoes and enjoy climbing in them. I would recommend them to someone else who is just starting out.

Rated4out of5byM4NathanfromBang for the BuckPros:
Great beginner shoe. I've been climbing in the same pair for 1.5 years indoors and these shoes are still good to go. I mostly boulder in gyms (but these have seen real rock with me) about 3 times a week. They are crazy comfy for a climbing shoe and will do what they are meant to do up until you start getting in the V4/5(5.12) range.
The heel is pretty awful for heel hooking and the color will bleed into your socks or stain your feet if you don't like wearing socks with them. (It washes out though so not a big deal.)
Really the only reason I knocked a star off was the bad heel.
Overall: Great for beginners, cheap enough to be done with when your skill surpasses their abilities or to use as a comfy warm up/cool down shoe.
