Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smurf Feet I've had these shoes for a year and I love them. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because my feet are perpetually blue after climbing even though I've consistently worn them for over a year. They aren't the most aggressive shoes, but they are great if you're looking for shoes that will be comfortable for long sessions in the gym. The little bit of outdoor climbing I have done with these they've worked well for; they stick when chimneying and grab those smaller holds. I do recommend these shoes, but if you are going to buy these shoes, get the purple ones. They won't give you vibrant turquoise feet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blue Feet Beware! I buy my climbing shoes based on fit and feel, not performance. The shoe fits my foot well and let's face it, any shoe will perform well through 5.12. If you disagree with that statement then climb for a few more years and you will understand. My only issue with this shoe is my blue feet! I could live with blue feet for the first 10 uses, but this shoe will turn your feet bright blue for days. Yes, DAYS! I tried to contact 5.10 and they didn't even respond. Has this experience soured my opinion of 5.10? You know it. Will I buy 5.10 again? I will not. Will I recommend 5.10? Never. This isn't just a rant against 5.10, it's a rant against poor customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable... And Blue These are fantastic shoes to climb in all day. I climb in a gym and the full leather is incredibly comfortable. That being said, these shoes are not very aggressive. As some other reviewers have noted, these do turn your feet blue. I don't mean they give your feet a slight tint of blue. I mean these suckers try their best to make you a smurf. In the end, if you want an incredibly comfortable rock shoe to climb in all day, and don't mind the slight, um, side effects, this is the shoe for you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beginner shoe I had this shoe and climbed exclusively in it for 2 years before wearing out the rubber. Not too many shoes can do that, true, but DO NOT resole these shoes to try to save a buck. The rest of the shoe can't handle it. Mine leaks dye like a third world sweatshop every time I put them on now, they're not at all rigid anymore, and they don't fit as well anymore. Honestly, they dyed my feet blue after the first month and every time after. Cheap dye, but overall ok I guess. Just don't resole them. Use for two years and replace the entire thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits / Feels Great It's been about month now and so far these shoes have been great. They fit similar to my shoe size and are made for a normal to narrow foot profile, which is exactly what I was looking for. I had tried a pair of Vapors before this that were unfortunately made for a wide feet and thus gave me blisters along my big toes -- but ever since I switched to the Rogues, my toes have been fine. The Stealth rubber also does a great job sticking to surfaces. So far it's been a pretty great shoe!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Climbing Experience I bought these shoes in an attempt to branch out from my normal style. After climbing with these shoes for a couple of months I've noticed that they are not very versatile when it comes to various types of climbing. These shoes are great for long climbs because they are comfortable. They are great for smearing, because of the soft, flexible leather on top. The double strap makes them easy to get on and off. However, if you are a climber who likes to boulder or climb intensively, then these shoes probably are not for you. I've noticed that when it comes to shifting weight on tiny foot placements, I tend to slip off more than usual. I find that there is a greater amount of pressure on my large toe when toeing. I believe these shoes are more about comfort and less about performance. Still, not a bad pair of shoes though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great value and fit I purchased these as a reasonably priced shoe to use primarily at the gym so as not to beat up my other more expensive shoes. They are my first pair of FiveTen shoes, having climbed primarily in Lasportivas, and I've been very happy with them so far. They are relatively soft and lightly down turned so they're good for semi steep routes with decent sized footholds. On more vertical routes with small footholds where more weight is on your toes, their lack of stiffness becomes apparent and you need to put more energy and focus into keeping your feet on the holds. I've been happy with them on moderate routes as they strike a good balance between sensitivity, support, and comfort. In terms of fit, I ended up going a full size down from my street shoe for initially an almost painfully tight fit and they have stretched over 6 months of regular use to become comfortably snug; not painfully performance tight nor sloppy loose, just about right. I'm happy with their durability so far and while they might not last as long as some premium shoes, I think they'll take a resole or two. I've found these to be a great value for their performance and comfort. They are a much better fit and more comfortable than the lasportiva tarantulace and a snugger fit (especially in the heel) than the lasportiva nagos. I still love my mythos, miuras, and TC pros but thsese rogues are hard to beat for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice fit - not durable Been climbing for some time now, been through a number of different shoes and was looking for a new pair for the gym. Fit perfectly out of the box, broke in nicely with about 1/4 size stretch and the rubber is fantastic. However, the upper material is simply not robust. I've NEVER had a pair of shoes that wore through to the skin before. These have. At multiple points, mainly over my little toes. And not really pushed then either. V3/V4 face routes with mild toe hooking - dead inside 4 months. Will be returning for credit against another pair of Muiras or something. Can't even recommend them as a good begin her shoe as I have good technique. Three stars for fit and the rubber, would be one star for durability.

I was wondering about the sizing for this shoe.  Should I go half size or full size down from normal shoe?  Also I was wondering if 5.10 ever commented on the bleeding of the blue dye onto the feet after some wear?
